After beginning our journey as Foster Parents, I have become even more passionate about doing all I can to care for orphans. I've hugged new adoptive mothers, prayed fervently for parents waiting to be matched with their child, and virtually high-fived friends who got the news that their baby was coming home. In so many ways, I feel that I can no longer close my eyes to children in need and have been pondering even more ways that I can help. 

{Insert crazy idea here}

A month ago, my friend Jill and I were pondering how we could partner together to help an adoptive family, and came up with this silly idea - We would give away an adoption fundraiser by partnering with Noonday Collection. Seventeen families that are actively pursuing adoption entered the give away and one lucky family was chosen: The Powers Family

The Powers have three biological boys and just last year adopted another son from China - they named him Joseph. Casey Powers told me that "None of us are perfect, so we wanted to specifically adopt a child with special needs. God is so gracious to each one of us despite our shortcomings, so we couldn't turn away from those who might be different than us." And so, they adopted Joseph from China and he has albinism.

Fast forward a year, and the Powers family felt the call to adopt another special needs child from China - but this time, they are looking to be matched with a daughter. They haven't been matched with her yet, but know that God's timing is perfect.

The Powers family did not fundraise at all during Joseph's adoption and felt strongly that it was their responsibility to fund the adoption that God called them towards.  And now, with the second pending adoption, I know the financial burden weighs heavily on this Air Force family. But even so, they have remained positive and diligent in raising the money needed to bring their baby home. 

That's where we come in! With a simple random act of kindness, we chose their name, and are going to do our best to love on them through gifts and donations that they never even saw coming! First, we are hosting a Noonday Fundraiser in their honor. If you don't know about the Noonday Collection, they partner with artisans in vulnerable communities by providing them with dignified jobs and fair wages. And so, by shopping at Noonday, you can support BOTH the Powers Family and also the artisan partners in vulnerable communities.  HOWEVER! Maybe you want to donate specifically to the Powers family, and that's where this page comes in! 100% of all donations received on this page will go directly to the adoption agency the Powers family is working with (WACAP).

If you have any questions about this campaign, please email me at mckinleyrich2015@gmail.com

I would LOVE for you to join me in this random act of kindness!

(20% of the proceeds from the Noonday Adoption Fundraiser will go directly toward their adoption. To shop that event, click here.)
