The Funkhouser Family is a pretty ordinary family like yours and mine, with a huge heart. Even though they have four beautiful children of their own, they would like to change the life of a child, a family in need by adoption. Jill contacted me a couple months ago, and asked if I would spotlight her adoption story. This past week she shared me her sweet story you can find HERE, or visit their cute blog, CAMP FUNK.
Today, I received a message saying they have been CHOSEN to adopt a sweet little girl, I am so HAPPY for them. I think this happened a little sooner then they anticipated, and they are trying to raise the remaining funds by having a Facebook-a-thon, today July 16th. Basically they are trying to paint their cause all over Facebook. Would you like to help? All you need to do is Copy this message to your Facebook status...

Jill and the Funkhouser family is also having a auction at their church for a fundraiser in September, to help supplement the cost of their adoption. They are humbly asking for any handmade donations, that can be donated at this auction. If you are interested in providing something for the auction email Jill at funk50(at)charter.net, and she can give you more information.
It does not need to be anything fancy, just something from the heart! I am still deciding
what to make to send them. I am debating over making a hooded towel, or a cosmetic snap purse.
I hope you will all help out for this wonderful cause! Really what better cause could their be then giving a child a life with a caring supportive family? I hope you will consider helping out the Funkhouser family with their adoption!
