Winners of the Christmas Cash!

All winners have been notified! I will list them here with first name, last initials only. I'm so excited for those of you who won and I hope it makes each of your Christmas' a little brighter! It's so fun to be a blessing. I wish I had gift cards to give to each of you who have prayed, shared and donated as we take this journey. All entries were assigned numbers and chose the winners.

Amazon $250 gift card goes to Kristin W. Kristin shared our giveaway nearly 20 times and her persistence paid off! Don't ever think your sharing doesn't make a difference. There are lots of people who come to this blog regularly, now, because of Kristin's faithfulness. It is a pleasure to be blessing her family with this gift for Christmas.

$100 Wal-Mart gift card goes to a youth pastor with a huge heart for orphans, Jonathan B. I've never met Jonathan, but he's been a big supporter ever since he learned of our adoption. Thanks, Jonathan!

$50 Sears gift card to Sabrina G. I don't know Sabrina and she didn't leave any message with her chip-in donation, so I'm hoping she'll give me details when she responds to my email saying she's a winner. I'd love to know how she found us. In fact, if you follow here, I'd love to know how you found our blog. Please, feel free to share in the comments.

$50 Lowe's gift card to Kathleen B. Kathleen left us a lovely note of encouragement. She is the Mom of a 22 year old young man with down syndrome. Thank you Kathleen for giving and encouraging us. I can't wait to one day be where you are in this journey. To look back and know that we've been loving our boys for longer than they were orphaned, to see the young men that God wants them to become.

$50 Toys R Us gift card to Christine S. Christine is a fellow adoptive Mom. She's in the process of adopting a little boy with down syndrome from the same country as our boys. I'm always amazed by the generosity of our Reece's Rainbow family. They give and give and give some more, even when their own needs are great.

Our family is incredibly blessed by each of you and your generosity. There will be more giveaways in the future and some fun things happening between now and Christmas, so don't feel like you missed out, just keep on coming back. We love you and pray for you daily that God would bless you and encourage you in the same way you have blessed us.

Hidden in Christ,


  1. Awesome! Yay, God! Now let's talk about raising you some more money since we have $9,000 to go. Okay, okay, I'll give you a day off...

  2. Wow congratulations to all the winners but most importantly for this family to get closer to achieving their final goal of a homecoming with two sweet little guys.
