We are Chris and Annie Hamlin and we have 7 precious children, 4 biological and 3 beautiful daughters from China. We are currently in process to adopt #8, also from China, but this time, a son!
Song is our Maggie's foster brother. He is blind and he ages in in just a few months - January! This will be an expedited adoption and we need to meet our goal in a very short amount of time! We have self funded up to this point but things will have to move quickly now and we need help.
Would you consider helping us bring our son home!
Below are links to our current fundraisers as well as some personal items we are selling.
"Sing a Song of Hope" T-shirts. Please go here to our T-shirt fundraiser
We also have an ornament and bracelet fundraiser through Apparent Project, where you can support our adoption while at the same time, supporting families in Haiti!
I thought long and hard about what type of fundraiser I wanted to do for our adoption and when I saw The Apparent Project, I knew!
Just read their mission statement:
"Our focus is to “make the needs of Haiti known,” to support opportunities for Haitians to provide for themselves and their families, empowering them to rise out of poverty… to be able to keep their families together… to avoid relinquishing their children to orphanages… providing educational opportunities for both parents & their children."
Pretty cool! They help us to bring out 8th child home and we help them by providing jobs for Haitian families to be able to KEEP their precious ones! You can read more about this wonderful organization here, https://apparentproject.org/
So, right now, we are selling these beautiful cereal box beaded bracelets. Each one comes with a tag that tells you all about the person who made your bracelet and what their hopes for the future are! How cool is that! Keep the tag, put it on your fridge and then you can commit to praying for that family!
We also have a few Christmas Ornaments left that are made from recycled oil drums! They are gorgeous!
Each bracelet and each ornament is only $10 (not including shipping), five to our adoption fundraiser and five to Apparent Project!
Please share and please let me know if you would like to purchase any. You can reply here, message me on FB or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
