Love Makes A Family Adoption Fundraiser

When I was growing up, my best friend was Kristin.  We did everything together.  Her family was my family and vice versa.  Now we are both moms raising our own families.  Kristin & her husband, Luke, are seeking to adopt two girls from Russia, both with special needs, and they are engaged in fundraising to offset medical costs associated with special needs kiddos.  You can read their full story here:

Kris reached out to see if I could help their fundraising efforts.  I sure hope so!  Here's what I'm doing:

HandstampedOriginals will donate 100% (ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!!) of the proceeds of every Love Makes A Family Wooden Tile Pendant to the Luke & Kristin Frank Family Adoption Fund.  These necklaces make a great gift (Christmas is coming, people) and while you're at it, you're helping create a Forever Family for special needs kiddos in limbo.  Here's the necklace:

Here's the link to order the Love Makes A Family Wooden Tile Pendant:

That's not all.  HandstampedOriginals will donate 50% of the proceeds for ALL other pieces in my Etsy shop--simply make a notation of "ADOPTION"  in the "Note to HandstampedOriginals" box upon ordering.

Thank you for helping create a Forever Family.
