Matt and I are running on Sunday to raise money for isupportadoptions.org. We sent an email out today to family and friends and I wanted to share it with you.
Kristy is running the New Jersey Marathon this Sunday. I’ll be doing the Half Marathon because it’s so much fun. Hopefully I finish before she does.
In any event, we’re hoping you could sponsor us on behalf of I Support Adoptions, a charitable non-profit organization that provides support (financial, informational, and emotional) to families seeking to adopt. It was started a few years ago by two of my sisters, who were motivated by their own stories.
Laura and her husband Mike adopted their son Philip from an orphanage in Ethiopia when he was 6 months old. Now he’s a handsome, smart, silly 6-year-old who wears his heart on his sleeve. You definitely know when he’s happy and when he’s not! Kris is recruiting him as her newest protégé; he can run like the wind.
Maria and her husband Kevin are in the process of adopting a little girl, also from Ethiopia. She should be coming home soon.
Laura and Maria (and their husbands) are two of the most selfless people you’ll ever meet. Their goal is to enable other families to experience the same joy they’re experiencing. I Support Adoptions has financially supported two adoptive families so far through various fundraising efforts. Your donation would go a long way in enabling additional “success stories”.
