"Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, Believe that you have received them, and you shall have them" (Mark 11:24).

My husband and I agreed that, when contemplating or continuing the journey of adoption, you must first believe that it can happen.  If you do not believe, you cannot press forward.  If we were all doubters and incapable of believing that such a thing could occur, we would not bother to fill out a single form or even inquire about a child we believe is meant to be part of our family. 

Faith is meant to help us continue the journey, as is hope.  Love occurs as we work toward bringing our child home, but it all starts with the belief that it can happen.  We put up blogs and fundraising profiles - we participate in Mulligan Stew giveaways at first because we believe it is possible. 

It is possible to have that belief shaken, our faith slip away as we move on.  It is even easy for that to happen. 

That is why we chose our bracelets, directly to benefit our adoption, with the word "believe".  When faith is shaken or when hope wanes, we wanted to give a reminder to those to continue to believe.  We hope this bracelet reminds those who need it to continue to "believe".

There is a button on the right side of our blog that will link you to our newly-created webstore where you can purchase these bracelets with the message "..believe...".  You can use paypal to pay.  They are $3 per bracelet, and $2 shipping for as many as you would like.  We will ship them to you, along with a prayer that you never lose your ability to believe.

All proceeds benefit our adoption, but payments for the bracelets are not tax-deductible. They will directly help us continue to work toward redeeming our future son from The Bad Place in Bulgaria. 

Thank you for caring, for sharing, for praying, and for BELIEVING.

"All things are possible for those who believe..." (Mark 9:23)
