***This little blurb is from Shelly....please help her to meet her own challenge....
Each morning I wake up and the first thought that pops into my head is, "I should be in Ethiopia." It makes no sense, I get that. The Mayor's only reservation is the expense. So, I challenged myself. I thought -- Just take a leap of faith and see if you can raise the Application Fee of $250 by your 4oth birthday on August 8th. Then, take it from there. If you really don't adopt again, it's easy enough to reimburse everyone's money by paypal and no one's the worse for wear.
Some dear friends have decided to *Take a Leap of FAITH* and adopt a child from Ethiopia. We met when I traveled to China for Rubea. They were with us the entire trip as they were adopting a son from the same orphanage as Rubea. She has had an urge to adopt from Ethiopia for some months now....so, they have decided to try and raise the fees by her birthday! If you feel LED to help them in some small or large way, please click on the *Chip In* on my side bar or visit her blog here.
Blessings to each of you!!
