Christmas Cards = giving an orphan a forever family

I spoke with an attorney today about whether or not Nicaragua is an option for us and I am so thrilled to say that it is!  Nicaragua is a fairly new program (just began in January) but they currently have four couples going through it right now that have/are submitting their dossier's.  We are still waiting on a few call backs but I really liked the feel I got today over the phone.  So assuming we do take this route the first financial hurdle is for the Letter of Intent and the Application Fee.  It's just the first step but requires a good chunk of change  because there's some translation that will have to be done and seals on the document from the state, Nicaragua's seal, and postage itself is outrageous.  $100 just for postage!

So with Christmas just around the bend I'd like to make your cards for you.  I can make them in either 4x6 or 5x7 so that you can have them printed at Walgreens or wherever without the increased cost for special sizes.  $7 for one card design or $12 for two different designs.  Just email me your photo(s) and wording you'd like on them. I'll design the card and tweak it until you are pleased.

Your cards will be custom made and one of a kind.  Nobody else will have the same cards as you this year!  Here are some examples of what can be done but keep in mind the options are endless.

  3. So excited for the Butler family and your pursuit of a new member. Praying God blesses every step of the way!! Great to know that Nicaragua is opening up adoptions.
    Can't wait to follow you thru this!We are supposed to try and get some pictures Sunday. If any turn out alright, I would love for you to help me with my cards. Could probably use some help with my sad looking blog too - I am clueless. :-).

  4. I need to hurry up and get some pictures taken. hopefully this weekend.
