My husband and I have been blessed to have three healthy children with little effort conceiving. However there are many families that are not as fortunate. Some families choose the adventure of adoption but it is not an easy road. One organization that supports families with the overwhelming process of international adoption is The Sparrow Fund. The Sparrow Fund supports adoptive families by providing grants - "grants to pay for the preadoption counseling and support, medical reviews of the file of the child they are referred, and post adoption support as their child becomes part of their family."
During the month of May, many folks have joined forces to Build the Nest by donating 10% of sales to The Sparrow Fund. So I encourage you to take a look at the long list of businesses and do some shopping this month while supporting charity. Now is a great time to purchase Father's Day gifts, summer birthday gifts, and what about End-of-the-Year Teacher Gifts?
