The Twelfth Day: Adopting Families Christmas Shops

This year, we have decided to try to be more intentional in our gift giving. That's what this whole 12 Days of Christmas has been about- finding ways to help others, spread the love of Jesus, free the orphans, lift up widows, rescue the oppressed, give life, be intentionally giving of ourselves as we give gifts this year, instead of rushing and stressing and overspending and just plain driving ourselves crazy trying to check off our lists.

So here is the last day. Only 3 links, but inside each one, you will find dozens of families across the world who are all adopting a child, or children, and are selling things that they make themselves to raise money to bring their children home.
Adoption is expensive, its unfair, but its the truth.
But every little bit adds up, and is truly appreciated.
There are many unique items on these links- clothing, accessories, seasonal items, toys, household things. But each one is connected to a child somewhere in the world; each one is lovingly made by a parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent, sister, brother, or friend who cherishes a child they have never met and is working to give them a home, a family, and a future.

Please consider doing some of your shopping with these families. It will mean the world to them, and hope to a child.
