November is National Adoption Awareness Month so we felt we had to come up with something to spread the word and with Bonfire we were able to design a sweet t-shirt to accomplish just that! The "o" in HOME is a symbol for adoption, it is a triangle entwined with a heart which represents the 3 pieces of adoption-the birth parents the adoptive parents and the child brought together with love!
If you don't already know, our family is passionate about adoption. We are waiting to add number 3 hopefully sooner rather than later, but we know God has it all planned already. In the meantime we wanted to create this awesome t-shirt that supports a great cause-us expanding our family, but more importantly spreading a message of love and hope! We have 2 adopted boys made in the USA and feel there can be a lot of misconceptions/unknowns about domestic adoption. If this t-shirt gets people talking and speaks to someone's heart and inspires even one family to consider adoption then we have been successful.
Growing up I always knew I wanted children and I used to think that the worst thing God could ever do to me was not allow me to be pregnant. Little did I know that by battling infertility He has given me the most wonderful blessing by putting adoption on my heart and having me marry a man who opened his heart to it as well. Our boys are brothers in every sense of the word and it is so profound to us to think of how God had our story written to come together in His timing and end up with the boys we have. Without the selfless choice their birthmom's made and His guidance they would not be brothers! We cannot wait to meet the next member that joins our family-we are already in love with a little soul that we haven't even met yet!
We want to thank you for taking the time to read about something that means so much to us. If 50 shirts are sold they will be printed and they will be sent directly to you, if not then no one will be charged and the shirts will not be printed. If you live near us in the Minneapolis area let us know, we have a shipping code you can use and all shirts will ship to us for free and we will coordinate getting them to you.
If our cause speaks to your heart please get a shirt and help us raise awareness about adoption and a little extra money to bring our third heart home.
"And not only for that nation, but to bring together and unite all the children of God scattered around the world." John 11:52
