bringing home a baby

This past January some dear friends of ours, John and Lauren Casper, adopted a little boy from Ethiopia.  It is an amazing story and you can read all about it on Lauren's blog.  The story is also captured so sweetly on the video below:

I have seen that video dozens of times and still cry!  Such a sweet, sweet moment.  And there is something even more exciting about this family ... they are adopting again!  In the not-too-distant future there will be another video like this, another baby finding love in John and Lauren's open arms.  

Right now they are still trying to raise money.  The sum: close to $30,000.  Their current fundraiser is called "Baskets of Love".  It is a raffle where you can purchase a ticket for $5 and enter to win a tremendous basket full of goodies.  All the proceeds go towards adopting their second little love from Ethiopia and creating another moment like the one you just watched.

If you find it in your heart, please consider helping this wonderful family.  You can enter the contest here.  

I am so excited for John and Lauren to be parents again and for Mareto to be a big brother.  I am praying for them, and I hope you will too!
