Only 2 hours left!

Praising God for the $120 you all have graciously donated towards Tamara's adoption.  
But we have a matching grant for $300.
That means we have these last two hours to double our offerings and raise $180.

Please consider donating $5 or $10.
Let's help Tamara's family receive the full matching grant!

Trusting the Lord to provide-- we are his hands and feet!
You can donate here.


  1. I just donated, but I may have been too late to help with the matching grant.

    1. Thank you Carol. You are an amazing woman! I have a feeling the donor will still match your $45! :)

  2. Just wondering where your family blog went, I've been enjoying reading it for a couple months now and today when I went to check it, it said I had to sign in. I don't have a blogger account...

  3. I love reading your blogs, but now today when i tried going on i couldn't because it said that i had to be invited to go on your blog. I love it so much and think its sad if i can't reed about your amazing family anymore :(

  4. Christine, I have been a silent follower of your blog Smiles and Trials for quite awhile(since Dennis joined your family) I when to check for an update and noticed I need to sign in. I understand your privacy, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law adopted from Kaz and had a private blog. If you can find it in your heart I would like to continue to read your blog. My e-mail is I also understand if you do not wish for this. You have an amazing family and I would like to continue folowing!!

  5. Christine-your blog now says it's private. I was wondering if that was a temporary thing? I've been reading since before you brought home Paul and Anastasia and would be so upset if this was a permanent thing :(

  6. Hey there - I don't know if it's just me, but Smile's and Trials is saying it's invite only when I try and go there.

  7. Christine, I know this isn't the best way to reach you but don't know of any other way--. I have been reading/following along with you on your smiles and trials blog. Tonight when I clicked on it I was not able to access it. The commentwas that I needed to be invited to be able to read it. I am asking if you would be willing to invite me to be able to read and follow your blog. Thanks, Debra

  8. Christine- I was just at you other blog, and it says it is now private! And that it is invite only. I didn't know if this was a permanent move? I love, love, love reading your blog and have since way before you adopted Dennis! I hate to not be able to read it anymore.


  9. I was so sad when I clicked on your blog snd saw that you went private. I have been reading since right before you brought home Dennis, and would love to be invited back!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Blessings!
