Madeline 8" doll giveaway with accessories ends Saturday!

Asking for your help today, Saturday, 22nd, the last day of our Madeline giveaway!!! We need 40 people to purchase one of our bookmarks. They are only $5 and were made with so much hope, love, & care. Our Madeline fundraiser ends at midnight. If you could also spread the word to a friend that would love to help, please leave a sweet comment. We have three bookmarks to choose from, "polka dot flower", "ladybudgs", and "personalized". We will carefully write your childs name on the bookmark. Just designate which style you wish to purchase at checkout. The "add to cart" button is at the right. And you'll be entered for the Madeline giveaway. We are also accepting donations if you had rather donate. We thank you so much for visiting our blog. Faith's adoption is a true step of faith.
We have a third bookmark that we're introducing. This has been so much fun for the kids and me. We've come up with different ideas and designs as well as inspiration from other mom's. One mom inparticular actually donated to the bookmark fundraiser but didn't leave a note on which bookmark she preferred. I soon found out that she wanted to ensure we didn't run out of bookmarks so she didn't purchase one, thus the donation. I've met so, so many sweet, sweet mom's through this journey. And we aren't finished yet. So for this special mom, I came up with an idea and had my oldest daughter Emmi personalize this bookmark with this mom's daughters name. It's a surprise and will be mailed soon. In just a few weeks, she will finally have her daughter in her arms.
A bookmark, why a bookmark fundraiser? A bookmark is used for marking a page in your book. Young or old, we all like bookmarks, right? Bookmarks remind us of events, special places, school, etc. My kids know where all their bookmarks came from. So this little bookmark will be a great story to tell. A story of how God lead a family to their daughter across the world. A story of faith! A friend gave me an idea. So all future bookmarks purchases will have a special note on the back. Thank you Faith for your suggestion. And for those just getting started or in the process or even getting ready to travel, what a great little story to share of why you purchased the bookmark.

The picture quality isn't exactly what I intended as the bookmark is a little darker in color and the flower at the bottom actually has some sparkles with a little rhinestone in the middle of the flower. I took several pictures and this one was the best. The flower is actually a 3 dimensional stick on, very cute!!! Each bookmark is different as the flowers vary in size too. I used the small one on this particular bookmark as it seemed to work best.

If you would like to help us with our fundraiser to bring our daughter home, click on the "add to cart" button to the right and place your order. We have three different styles currently, Ladybug, polka dot flower, and personalized. Just leave a comment in your shopping cart which style you prefer. If you choose "personalize", please leave the "name" you wish to have added to your bookmark. You may also enter the Madeline giveaway by leaving a donation if you prefer.

Each bookmark purchased, $5, gains an entry into the Madeline giveaway that ends this weekend. The set includes a Madeline 8" poseable doll, carrier, vet set cloth outfit, and magnetic doll board. What a great little playset to take to China too!!!! Thank you so much for visiting our sight and we hope you consider ordering one of our bookmarks or making a small donation.

We would also appreciate it if you could please spread the word about our Madeline fundraiser giveaway.

  1. Oh Anita! Faith is so pretty! But she looks so sad in that video, it makes me want to cry. I can't wait to hear about when she finds out that she DOES have a family! I bet she will not look sad on that day! Love you. Christine
