As you all know, adoption is near and dear to my heart. And I know that adoption is near and dear to the hearts of many of you who read this blog too. That's why I'd like to tell you about an amazing opportunity to help someone who is in the process of adopting a baby.
Joe and Christy have been married for 13 years. They have been foster parents to six different children. They both work full time and Joe is a volunteer fire fighter. During the time they've been married they have endured multiple miscarriages, unsuccessful IVF treatments and an adoption where the birthmother changed her mind after the baby had been home with them for two days.
They had used up all of their savings and had basically given up on their dream of being parents when Christy and Denise, the owner of Matilda Jane, reconnected.
Christy told Denise about their struggle to become parents and Denise offered to hold a fundraising Matilda Jane Trunk Show for them with 80% of all sales going to help offset their adoption expenses.
So, this coming Saturday, April 24, there will be a Matilda Jane Trunk Show at Mulligan's Restaurant in downtown Cheboygan, Michigan for Christy and Joe. Now I know that most of you don't live in Cheboygan, Michigan but if you call the Matilda Jane office on Friday, April 23 and tell them you're placing an order for Christy and Joe, 80% -- 80%! -- of your order will go to them. If you've ever thought about buying Matilda Jane Clothing I can't think of a better time to do it.
Orders may be called in to the Matilda Jane office on Friday, April 23 ONLY at 260.424.3511. Make sure you tell them that it's for Christy and Joe.
Plus, there's a giveaway for you. If you post about this on your blog or Facebook account, and come back here and tell me that you did, you'll be entered into a drawing for a little girls' Matilda Jane dress in your choice of size. You must come back and tell me by Thursday at 12:00 midnight.
Thanks for helping someone's dream come true.
