Can you help Kim raise money for this adorable little guy?  Please cross post this to your blog and facebook!

Kim and I met Erika, Nate, and Elijah when we were in Uganda.  We love them and their faith!

Meet Elijah Augustus. Isn't he just the cutest?!

Right now he is at the same babies home that Madison is from. When I was there last summer, he was around 10 months old, he couldnt sit up or even hold his head up. He was found in a garbage bag, discarded and unwanted. Now look at him! He is even starting to walk.
While I was there, I met Nate and Erika, and they were given permission to pursue him in adoption. He now has a family that love him and want him to be their son. He has a forever family!! He is no longer an orphan and I am asking you if you will help this family bring him home. You may not be called to adopt, but we can all be apart of this beautiful story. We can support this family that is called to adopt.

Erika has been in Uganda since March trying to get her son home. The expenses keep adding up and they desperately need your help in bringing Elijah home.  So, please buy a ticket and pray for Elijah and Erika to come home soon.

So, to help, we are having a raffle. The prizes have been donated and 100% of the money will go to the family for the adoption. Now for the prizes:  First prize is a new 64GB IPad 2 and the second prize is a 32 GB Ipod touch. So not only could you win an AWESOME prize, but you would also be helping this precious boy get home to his forever family.

Here is how the raffle will work:
$10= 1 entry
$25= 3 entries
$50= 8 entries
$100= 20 entries
$150= 35 entries
$300= 80 entries

WAIT, there's more!  Once you buy a ticket you can get FREE additional entries by 1) if you re-post this on facebook or your blog, leave me a comment here and a link and you will be entered again (you can do this once a day). or 2) if someone buys a ticket and uses your name as a reference, by leaving a comment in paypal or here, you will be entered TWICE.

How to enter:
1.  you can click on the chipin button on the side. It is linked to my paypal account. Under the comment section of paypal, please leave me your contact info. I will send you an entry receipt with a number.
2. cash or check is always welcomed. Just leave me a comment with your email and I will send you my address.

We will hold the drawing for both prizes on July 5 and then you will be notified if you have won. We will also post something here telling who the winner's are. Hurry and could be you!

Now more about the family:

Here is Nate, the daddy.
