Welcome. This is part of our story about how God is building our family through adoption and teaching us about HIS family. Going through this process is giving us more understanding about how He has adopted us. We are HIS children, still growing and maturing and developing in our relationship with Him.

Look at this great photo Madeline took for her 4H project.
Madeline is selling the Uganda Bead necklaces which she got through the 147 Million Orphans site. The long strands of beads are $20 each. Half the money goes back to Uganda to help mothers earn a living to feed and care for their children. The other half, Madeline gets to keep towards her Ethiopia trip. She is working toward going with us on our second trip to pick up the boys.
There are a lot of ways they can be worn. Wrapped around the wrist as a bracelet is a favorite or as a single or double strand necklace. Each one is unique as it is hand crafted in Uganda.
Go to the fundraising page if you are interested in purchasing one for yourself or as a gift. Each comes with a tag that tells the story of why and how they are made. This is a gift that truly gives to others.
If you have a Uganda Bead necklace, feel free to post a comment on how you like it.
