4.) Support those who support the orphan

according to
(cause I'm too lazy to go get my Websters)
the definition of "support" is:

to bear or hold up (a load, mass, structure, part, etc.); 
serve as a foundation for.

Adoptive families need support!
Adoption is not easy.
It's a huge transition for the adoptee 
and for the adoptive family.

From the very beginnings of paperwork,
to financing the adoption,
to fixing up a bedroom,
to traveling domestically or internationally,
It's more the bringing a meal over when the family
is united.

To share the highs and lows with them,
this is a gift that you can give some one!

To cheer with the family during accomplishments,
and to cry with them when they struggle.

Walking the journey by the side of an adoptive family
is an incredible blessing.
So, if you have ever said,
"Oh, I'd love to adopt but my spouse wont."
"I'm not called to adopt."

Then I ask you,
find someone in your area -
walk with them.
help them.
support them
in whatever way they need.

Check out my friends -
they are both having awesome auctions
to help raise funds for to bring home their babies!
If you can support them financially that would 
be awesome! 

Y'all are great!

Connie has a $500 Walmart gift card!
(Ends today! Get your support in now!)
Anita has a $150 and $100 Visa gift cards,
and ipod touch,
and more! 
(Ends tomorrow!  Help them bring their Kaleb home!)

Hebrews 10:24
 And let us consider how we may spur 
one another on toward love 
and good deeds.
