Win a Wii or XBox 360 and Hlep Jaidyn Come Home!

We are having a Raffle to help raise the money we need to bring Jaidyn Grace home. For a suggested donation of $5.00 you will be entered into the raffle for 1 ticket. Donate $10 and you will get 2 tickets for a chance to win. Donate $20 and get 5 tickets and so forth. For your generous donation you will have the chance to win your choice of a Wii or Xbox game system and help Jaidyn come home.

Asking for help is always difficult and hard, however, the truth is that we are asking for help. We have been working hard at raising the money we will need to travel to China to bring Jaidyn home. We have had two fundraisers this month and decided that we should have another Raffle. We had a booth at Celebrate Freedom with a Raffle for a game system and raised $700.00. We are excited to have the chance to meet so many people, raise awareness about adoption, and give the game system to a family that were truly blessed to have it. Unfortunately, we did not break even with this fundraiser due to the cost of the table, the purchase of the game systems and other supplys that were needed. However, we believe that we planted seeds for adoption and we had a lot of fun meeting people, face painting for the kids, and enjoying the festival. Due to the need to break even and continue to raise funds we decided to start another Raffle. We hope to have continued support and participation. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity, I know in today's economy every little bit is precious.

We will post a video of the drawing to the blog on August 30th. Good luck!! Please feel free to pass this info on to your friends and family. The more the merrier because we still need to break even for the cost of the game systems!!

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!
