carina lee: on bringing a sweet baby home {and a little treat}

my sweet friend carina has gotten word that her baby girl will be coming home incredibly soon.
i'd love for y'all to hear a little bit from her, and pray about taking part in their family's story!

Hello! I'm Carina and I blog over at a punk, a pumpkin and a peanut.
I am mama to three little rascals, lover of vintage and coffee and chocolate, among other things.

For the last year, my husband and I have been waiting to adopt our fourth baby.
We have two biological boys, and one adopted, 
and feel so excited to be adding to the sweet chaos that is our every day.
Two weeks ago we got the call that we'd been chosen to adopt a baby girl due this August. 
And we are over the moon.
We know that God is already writing our love story with this little peach
and His hand is so evident in the details.
You can read more about all of that here.
The reality of adoption is that it takes a serious chunk of change to make it happen.
Like $25,000 when all is said and done.
We've saved and saved and had a little pancake breakfast to get the ball rolling,
but we are still well away from that number.
We are not ones to ask for something without offering something in return,
mostly because it makes us feel weird.
I've been making jewelry for my little etsy shop for the last few months and
after a lot of thought, I decided to design a few adoption necklaces to help make up some of the difference.
I am dreaming big here: my goal is to sell 100. My dream is 200.
300 would knock our socks off and put a serious dent in that total.

 Would you consider helping us out?
Spread the word and buy a necklace (or two)...
you'll be helping us bring our baby home, supporting adoption
and you'll even get something pretty in return!
And please come follow along on this super exciting journey -
it's sure to be an adventure!

Each one should use whatever gift
he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering 
God’s grace in its various forms.
{1 Peter 4:10}

This is the confidence 
we have in approaching God: 
that if we ask anything 
according to his will, he hears us. 
And if we know that he hears us – 
whatever we ask – 
we know that we have what we asked of him. 
{1 John 5:14-1}

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts, 
blessed is the one who trusts in you!
{Psalm 84:11-12}
