And the Winner Is...

Wow! That was really fast! In less than 24 hours our blog went from 4 followers up to 15! That's fantastic...thanks to everyone who is following our adoption journey!

So why the sudden interest in "followers"? Is it because of some unresolved popularity issue...possibly. But the real reason is to get awareness out to our friends and family of our deep desire for prayer from those who care about us. We've been learning that the adoption process is a daily struggle with emotions. We have seen first hand what the power of prayer can do, and believe me when I say I NEED daily prayer :)

So because you've all been so gracious to me and joined my little blog, we wanted to say thank you with our first drawing of Gobena Coffee! is a orphan ministry located right here in Morton, IL. Our friends, Steve and Danae, have adopted from both Colombia and Ethiopia and feel their calling is to help orphans and Ethiopian churches. Through the sales of Gobena Coffee they are providing education, food, and shelter for orphans. Check out their website at! By "following" our blog, the purchase of this one bag of coffee will feed an orphan for ONE MONTH!!!

The picture above is of my kids picking the winner! We thought it would be fun to include the whole family (and then you would all know it was a fair and unbiased pick!)

And the Winner Is...


Congrats, I will be e-mailing you later with more details.

We figured this went so fast that we'd offer another challenge. When we get to 25 followers we will have another drawing for an Ordinary Hero T-shirt (check out the styles at! Tell your friends!
