UPDATE: It is 8:35 EST and the contest is officially over. I will be announcing the winner tomorrow, so stay tuned!!!!!
Okay... so I mentioned last week that I would share just why I have the Virginia Candle Company logos flashing all over my blog. Here's why...
As most of y'all know, we adopted Elizabeth from China last year. What a BLESSING she is!! I simply cannot fathom life without her. How in the world I did not give birth to this child is beyond me. I mean, she is so much like me it SCARES ME at times!!! HAHA!! The Lord is good, isn't He, at making sure you have THE child for you, whether you birth them in your womb or in your heart.
Anyway, Mr. U and I talked and planned on adopting from China again. Sadly, though, last May the government agency in China that handles adoptions (China Center of Adoption Affairs) instituted new rules and now we do not qualify to adopt from China. This happened to MANY families. I am sure China has their reasons, but this news broke our hearts!!
After tears and much prayer, we are confident that the Lord is still leading us to adopt again. We are not yet 100% positive whether that means another international adoption or domestic adoption. Either way, we are listening clearly to the Lord and we know that He knows best. :)
The biggest thing we know, though, is that no matter what the adoption, we do not have the funds to afford another adoption. And that is why I put the Virginia Candle Company logo on my blog. If anyone wants to purchase a candle from them, please come back to my blog and click on their logo. Their computer will know the click is coming from my blog and Mr. U and I will get credit for it! No, we won't get much money, but we have to start somewhere raising the funds, right?
