Look at what beautiful people have given to place children into families


There are so many children who need families, and so many families who need help to bring them home. I am so very grateful to the wonderful people who have helped my children so far, and I would encourage you to help out these other beneficiaries of the Mulligan stew.  Please consider helping these children as well.  Read about them here.

Every donation is tax deductible and will change the world for so many children.  I am humbled by the generosity of people I have never met, and I pray that I honor their faith in me by bringing glory to my Father in heaven through our adoption.  
Above all eles, the families of every child listed in the link above value your faithful prayers as they seek to bring their blessings home.  
Thank you so much for your support.

I will mention it to the organizers, thanks. I believe they worked very hard to make sure they were operating within the confines of all rules and regulations, but it never hurts to verify again.
Blessings.

Dear Traci,

I just wanted you to know that I was praying for your family and the four siblings all weekend. Asking and asking God to release them via providing money, support and spiritual protection for them, you and your family.

Much love, Heather
