One for One

Good morning, friends!  Today is a very special day!  My bloggy friend, Joy, has a very exciting opportunity for all of us!  Her family is trying to adopt their girl, "Pie," and they need your help!  I will let her explain it all to you.

Hello new friends! I'm Joy and I camp out over at Small Town Joy where I blog about my faith, family and our journey in foster care. I am a lover of Jesus, my main squeeze, and the little hearts I have been entrusted with. 
My sweet man (Barry) and I are blessed to be the parents of three of the coolest kids on the block. Two "big kids" we call Jordan (15) and Riley (12), and one little sister we call "Pie". She's two. She's full of spunk. She's our foster child.
Our "Pie" has brought so much joy to our family. Our skin does not match, but our hearts match up just right. She has lived every day of her little two year old life with us. She knows no other family. We are hers, and she is ours.


The past two years have been filled with much wait and little activity. Her case has been a doozey and due to circumstances surrounding her case we felt God calling us to stand up and fight for protection our girl. After much prayer we hired a private attorney to help us stop the chaos surrounding this child's case and finalize our adoption.


In the past weeks, things have begun to move very quickly. Our adoption will likely be finalized soon. It would bless our socks off if you would donate $1.00 to our adoption fund. Do it so that ONE child may have a forever family. ONE less child will be in foster care. ONE family will have their forever child. Your ONE dollar will make a big difference.

Our goal is... $8500.00 to finish off our legal fees and finalize our adoption. Every single dollar counts.

And one more thing, will you share about this fundraiser? We need your help to get the word out. My friends have joined up and put together a sweet little giveaway for those of you who SHARE about this fundraiser. You can earn entries for sharing via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and your personal blog. You can NOT earn entries for giving. Skip on over to Kelly's blog and check out the giveaway... there's even a Kindle Fire!

Thank you so much for giving and praying and especially sharing!

God is good, all the time!


I've been following Joy's story and praying along with her.  They are SOOOO close to their goal.  Could you do 2 things for me?

1.  Donate.  If we all gave up our daily Starbucks this week and donated that money toward the One for One fundraiser, they would meet their goal a lot quicker!  
2.  Share this fundraiser!  Get the word out there.  I want Joy's family to meet their $8500 goal so they can keep their "Pie" for good. :)

Everyone needs a forever family.  Pray along with me this week, that God will be glorified in every step of the way.  I am excited for Joy and her family as they make this adoption final.

Oh, and I donated some goodies from my shop for the giveaway!  Check it out! :)

Thanks, friends!  Happy Monday!


  1. I read this family's story last night and cried. I want all children to know forever homes and it is so frustrating with unnecessary things get in the way of that. Great job sharing and getting there story out there. Their little girl deserves to stay with her family!

  2. I tried to go to Joy's blog and it didn't work... :(

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I believe I fixed it...
