Facebook Blitz

Okay, so International adoption can be quite pricey. There are not too many people who can afford to hand  over $20,000-$40,000 cash upfront.  Those who make a commitment to adopt internationally find ways to fundraise $ to aide with their adoption. There is a donation fund set up in our name via Reece's Rainbow ( www.reecesrainbow.org/sponsorrogers ) that will help contribute to bringing our 2 children home. All donations are 100% tax deductible. Sometimes $30,000 seems so overwhelming but if you break it down, it's really not that impossible. If......

200 people donated $150.00 = $30,000

250 people donated $ 120.00  = Goal!

300 people donated $ 100.00 = Goal!

350 people donated $ 85.00 = Goal!

400 people donated $ 75.00 = Goal

500 people donated $ 60.00 = Goal!

So here is my challenge....

If every friend I have on Facebook was able to donate $20 and then send on to their friends a message about our family and they donanted, we would hit our goal in no time.
Please remember we are ransoming out 2 beautiful children, that would be sent to an adult institution in their country at age 5, all because they have an extra chromosome.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our heart for your help.


  1. I'm thrilled to see that you have some donations already! I've posted it on our pages and pray that you will get all the funds you need in a timely manner.

  2. I just donated $100.00 to help jump start your fundraising. Can't wait to hold those loving children!

  3. Hey Erika,
    I love how you have broken it down...it seems less overwhelming in the way you have explained it. We have so many people who want to help us and the numbers you have put together make this journey seem attainable. Thanks for putting this information together in this way.

  4. Just wanted to let you know we have told a lot of people about you and I have shared your blog. We are supporting and praying for you.....our fellow Virginians!

  5. Thanks Wendy, but I can't take credit for it. A fellow blogger inspired it. Please feel free to use it on your blog!

  6. We are so happy to see these kids going to such a wonderful family. My husband and I are just in the saving up for the homestudy phase of our adoption and we were really praying that these two would find a home together. AND THEY DID!! The Lord sure is awesome! I hope you get all your donations you need to ensure these children come home!
