Because of Isaac

A friend of mine (via my sister-in-law and the wonderful world of blogging), whom I have only met once in real life, has started an awesome non-profit that I have to tell you about. She has had a really difficult road with infertility and eventually adopted. After she adopted her precious boy, Isaac, she found out she was pregnant and they now have 2 boys that are 6 months apart and another one in utero!!!

If you have dealt with this issue or know someone who is, please refer to her post and list of wonderful resources.

They are currently deployed to Turkey, but still managed to find the time to start this non-profit organization called Because of Isaac in honor of their first little boy. They have highlighted a family to help raise money for their adoption process. Check out Because of Isaac and prayerfully consider donating to the cause. What a blessing to be a part of a child finding their forever family! See below for a note from Wendi with many more details.

From Wendi:

Only the announcement of the adoption/birth of our children have I been this excited to put up a post on my blog. I am so very excited tofinally get to share this with the world.

The goal of Because of Isaac is very simple: We want to help raise funds to help childless couples adopt. We are starting with a couple very near and dear to our heart: JB's older sister Elizabeth and her husband Grant. But it is our hope that if this first adoption goes as planned, we will be able to spread our wings and continue onward ... helping more and more childless couples hold their child for the very first time just as we did with our little Isaac.

But we need to your help!

In order for this organization to get off the ground, I am seeking the support and prayers of people close to us. Blog readers. Facebook friends. Family. Friends. Acquaintances. While we will be moving forward with advertisement of various means, the way that this will most be spread is by word-of-mouth. Or by word-of-web!
Please take some time to visit our website. And then I am asking you to do the following:
1. Pray for this organization and for Grant & Elizabeth.
2. Post a link to: Because of Isaac on your blog. Post it on Facebook. And send an email to those in your contact list.
3. Pledge to donate $100 BUT ...
4. ... if you cannot financially donate $100 would you pledge (to yourself) to FIND 10 people to donate $10 each? If we can find 250 people to donate $100 (or a combination there-of) we will reach our goal of $25,000 -- the estimated amount for Grant & Elizabeth to become parents. I have nearly that many people who read my blog each day.

I am so very excited to share this with all of you! How amazing will it be for each of us to know that we contributed to a family's creation! Please spread the word today!
