Forever Family Fundraiser

We are not the only ones in our family currently in the throes of adoption paperwork. (I really wanted to write "in the throes of adoption woes" because it's so rhyme-y but thought that might sound too negative - even if it's sometimes true, ha!)

My oldest sister Terri and her husband Dave, proud parents to four handsome boys, are working towards bringing home a little girl from Taiwan. She will be named Sophia, and we are all very anxious to meet her!

I say "working" because when you are in the fundraising phase of an adoption, that is very much what it is. Work. And sometimes, it gets discouraging.

That said, I pose the question ... Would you consider helping them to bring Sophia home?

Terri has created a beautiful cookbook (pictured above) which sells for $15 plus $5 S/H. This cookbook, entitled Forever Family, contains 350 favorite family recipes from family and friends around the world. Many of the recipes relate to the ethnic heritage of the person who submitted them, and where appropriate, that heritage has been noted below the recipe title. The cookbook has several "extras" such as a hard cover, a contributor's index, and an 8-page section of helpful cooking and entertaining hints. The book is very attractive and well-done and makes for a great gift - for yourself or someone else!

For instructions on how to order and pay for the cookbook, please visit the link below. Sophia's auntie thanks you in advance for playing a special part in bringing Sophia home! :)
