This is my friend Peaches and her adorable family.
Peaches and I went to high school together. She is every bit as sweet as she looks! And I'm a little bit obsessed with her kids . . . I mean just look at them:
They're wonderkids, cause not only are they perfect looking, but they are as charming and well-mannered as can be. It's pretty incredible.
And speaking of incredible . . . Peaches and her husband, Kad, have recently made a huge decision. After scrupulous research, they've decided to adopt siblings from Honduras. Siblings! Honduras has way too many orphans, and Peaches wants to adopt siblings so that they can stay together/have each other. And even though those kids will likely endure trauma in their early lives, I can assure you that once they get to this family, they will be the most loved and cared-for babes around.
The problem is that this process is going to cost over $35,000 (since they are adopting siblings). Peaches is knee-deep in mountains of paperwork, applications, home study forms, etc . . . some of which she can't even file until they've raised a few thousand dollars. And so, she's on a mission! She has spearheaded a couple of fundraisers already:
1. SIPPYS 4 SIBLINGS
(Peaches will mail you a sippy cup, you fill it up with spare change, and mail it back to her)
2. THE ADOPTION AUCTION
(Calling all crafty folk--got any handmade wares you'd be willing to donate to an auction in support of their adoption?)
If you're into the quick-&-easy kinda help, you can donate through Paypal. Peaches has set up an account that will go straight to their adoption funds. I know times are tough, financially, but if you have $5 or $10 to spare, it would mean the world to my sweet friend. Her family can't do this on their own . . . and so they rely on the kindness of friends and strangers. If you are willing/able to donate, participate in either of her fundraisers, or just want to check out their story, check out her blog here!
It makes me sad that it costs so much to adopt children who so desperately need homes. But I have faith that somehow, Peaches and her family will be able to raise the money . . . because there are two Honduran kids who need to meet their parents, brother, and sister! If you donate, please be sure to let me know so I can thank you. :)
