A Photo Shoot Giveaway & How YOU can Give to Help a Little One

There are reasons that you end up living in the places that you do.  I have lived in so many {9 growing up and 11 since being married}, and I have been blessed in my latter years to see retrospectively why I have lived in each one {of course at the time I may have been wondering why oh why}.  I know that one of the reasons I am living in this house at this time is to have met one of my dear friends, a dream of a neighbor, someone you just crazy admire, and one of those people you just click with instantly.  A kindred spirit.  An eternal friend.  Leslie.

She has an amazingly inspirational blog: both creatively and spiritually.  My Happily Ever After
And is a brilliantly talented professional photographer as well.  Leslie Autumn Photography.  Here are a few photos she did of little Miss Felicity this past Spring.  We agree that they are pure sugar!

I wanted to introduce you to Leslie's work to make you aware of a special situation in which her family has become inextricably involved regarding this precious little baby: Elijah.

"We are doing another giveaway around here... but one with heart... a big big heart. 

We have a dear family staying with us that is here to adopt a sweet baby boy.
One with eyes the size of Alaska, big beautiful eyes, a little boy named Elijah.

He has down syndrome, and has had a hard first month of his little life. Medically. 

Meanwhile the Lord has orchestrated a beautiful symphony, and he cordinates the perfect family to love Elijah, to call him theirs. And so across this great big country on about 24 hours notice, this family boarded a plane and came and claimed him as their own. 

And the expense of that, is bare, and raw.. and very real.. and so I ask that if you go to the website http://www.thecoffeesfamilyblog.blogspot.com/ and donate via paypal any amount that you feel led, and write my name in the comments, I will enter you for a free family photoshoot in the Southern California area. 

It will include a 2 hour photoshoot, in Orange or Riverside County, + $100 print credit towards reprints. 

The drawing will conclude towards the end of the week.

This baby we are praying will leave the hospital soon, very soon, but they cannot go home until the funds are met. Lets be the hands and feet of Jesus, and move mountains in there lives.And meanwhile, I cannot wait to meet the family who gave."

This family whom she had never met, was welcomed with open arms into her home to stay while finalizing the adoption and awaiting favorable health of their new son.  She has worked tirelessly to facilitate miracles in the life of this family.  You can read more about their journey here.  And see more photos of sweet Eli here.  I would also invite you to ponder helping this family.  It has been such a lift to see the goodness of others blessing the life of this little one.
