One for One - A Super Rad Giveaway!


I want to re-introduce you to my blog-turned-real-life friend Joy (far left). I had the chance to pal around with her and her sweet girl "Pie" two summers back. That handful of hours sealed our fate - lifelong friendship! Her southern drawl is the BEST EVER. I wasn't prepared for it and it blew me clean away. I had trouble concentrating on my salsa bowl because I was so mesmerized.

This girl is the real deal. Her and her husband are in the process of adopting "Pie" from Foster Care and they need our help. I'll let her fill you in, but you HAVE to promise to read the rest of this post with the honey-thickest drawl you can muster.

Take it away, Joy!



Hello new friends! I'm Joy and I camp out over at Small Town Joy where I blog about my faith, family and our journey in foster care. I am a lover of Jesus, my main squeeze, and the little hearts I have been entrusted with. 

My sweet man (Barry) and I are blessed to be the parents of three of the coolest kids on the block. Two "big kids" we call Jordan (15) and Riley (12), and one little sister we call "Pie". She's two. She's full of spunk. She's our foster child.

Our "Pie" has brought so much joy to our family. Our skin does not match, but our hearts match up just right. She has lived every day of her little two year old life with us. She knows no other family. We are hers, and she is ours.


2011

The past two years have been filled with much wait and little activity. Her case has been a doozey and due to circumstances surrounding her case we felt God calling us to stand up and fight for protection our girl. After much prayer we hired a private attorney to help us stop the chaos surrounding this child's case and finalize our adoption.


2012


In the past weeks things have begun to move very quickly. Our adoption will likely be finalized soon. It would bless our socks off if you would donate $1.00 to our adoption fund. Do it so that ONE child may have a forever family. ONE less child will be in foster care. ONE family will have their forever child. Your ONE dollar will make a big difference.

Our goal is... $8500.00 to finish off our legal fees and finalize our adoption. Every single dollar counts.

And one more thing, will you share about this fundraiser? We need your help to get the word out. My friends have joined up and put together a sweet little giveaway for those of you who SHARE about this fundraiser. You can earn entries for sharing via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and your personal blog. You can NOT earn entries for giving. Skip on over to Kelly's blog and check out the giveaway... there's even a Kindle Fire!

Thank you so much for giving and praying and especially sharing!

  7. Hey y'all! How y'all doin' out there? I'm JoyBelle's friend and Pie's personal stylist :) Please continue to share, not only online, but share with friends, neighbors, church folk etc. We often take our family for granted. Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew that we all a hand in making sure Pie had her very own Forever Family?
