A Wii Bit of Help

Clint and Ang Weldon are two of our closest friends. My blog is strewn with pictures of our kids playing with their kids. Which is what this post is about: their kids.

They have 2 boys, Foster and Rowan, whom they love more than life. But they have another child that they love just as much, whom they've never even met. For a while now their hearts have longed to adopt a little girl from China (where they lived for a while and have visited many other times). But despite their desires, this dream has yet to become a reality because of one major roadblock: money. Adoption, especially from a foreign country, isn't cheap.

If the Weldon's could pay in love, they would have enough to get their little girl a billion times over, but unfortunately the government uses a different currency. And it would be a shame to let something as trivial as money prevent a family from being complete. Soooooo.... some of us encouraged Ang to go out on a limb and do a fundraiser to raise the first portion of finances to start the adoption process. In response the Weldons have set up a raffle on their blog to do just that.

For a mere $5.00, you can buy an entry into their raffle to win a Nintendo Wii gaming system. Don't need one yourself? Christmas is only 4 short months away! Surely you know someone, who knows someone who would like one for Christmas. :) Or, feel free just to make a donation to help bring this little girl into the family God has for her.
