The Browns

Some friends of mine from college, Tyson and Christy Brown (a Chi O sorority sister), have been led to begin the process of adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. I am so excited for them..... they have two beautiful boys, Wyatt and Winston, who are very excited about having a little sister in their family! They are such a wonderful Christian family and this is one of the verses that laid God's plan for their family out so clearly:

".... once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." ~Proverbs 24:12

Christy runs an adorable gift and clothing shop in Ada, Oklahoma, called The Brown Box. They have begun selling special bracelets and T-shirts through their store specifically to raise money for their adoption fund.

This is the women's T-shirt they are selling and I just ordered one- they have such a great message and adoption has a special place in my heart since my dad was adopted as an infant.

Can you keep the Brown family in your prayers? And if you feel led to make a purchase, know that this is a wonderful family and a wonderful cause.

That's wonderful! I have another blogging friend who is in the process of adopting from Ethiopia (Lara from The Farmer's Wife Tells All.)

Praying blessings on the Browns!
