Phoenix Is Going Home!

I have some excellent news!  First some background.  A couple of years ago, my youngest son chose two boys listed on Reece's Rainbow to pray for.  He chose "Gideon" and "Phoenix".  Gideon is being adopted and should be home pretty soon.  It's been a joy to see him thriving at his "Happy Home" that is sponsored by Maya's Hope.  The work they do is amazing! 

Phoenix has finally, after 14 long years confined and even tied to a crib, been chosen, too! He and another young man, Denzel, will be joining the McQuinn's as beloved sons. The McQuinns are also adopting two other children.  They travel in a matter of weeks and still have about $10,000 to raise.  


I am blessed to be able to offer up a lovely Caron Cakes "Red Velvet" colorway afghan. This yarn is a very soft, long striped treasure.  It is an acrylic wool blend that can be washed in the gentle cycle.  Don't you love the way the colors blend? It's 57" diagonal; the perfect size to keep you comfy on the couch this winter. 

This is a very simple giveaway.  You earn an entry with each $5 you donate, so a $20 donation earns you 4 entries.  Paid entries are capped at 20, so the more you donate, the better your chance at winning.  Email your receipt to me by clicking here.  You can also earn a free entry by sharing this post, along with the McQuinn's FSP or YouCaring link. Leave a comment here telling me that you did!  

What a joy it will be to see these formerly forsaken children gathered into their loving home!  Thank you for helping make this a reality!
