The Darling family is an amazing family, whose blog I love to follow.  I first heard their name when they accepted a blind and malnourished baby boy off of our agencies waiting list.  Her blog post, Amazing Grace, describes their adoption of Jamesy and how he is blind no more.

After they came home from adopting Jamesy they told the story of a boy they met on the street in Ethiopia.  They had been shopping in the same district we shopped in and just like us, they had many street children and beggars approach them.  But one boy made an impact on them.  And while most people would have shook it off and left him behind, they wrote about him and talked about him and prayed for him.  She wrote about him in these posts: 

My Answered Prayer
Rich
The Other Boy

That was back in March of 2011 and since then they have prayed for him, supported him, even Skyped with him.  They tried every single avenue to adopt this boy, but recently they got word that the door was closed and legally adopting Habi, would never be possible.

So, they moved onto plan B and they are acting quickly.  They are working to bring Habi here, to live with them, on a student visa.  It is expensive, and difficult, and there are no guarantees that he will be approved for the student visa.  He has his visa appointment on July 2nd and they are asking for prayers that it goes well.  They also need to raise another $2,500 to cover the expenses for their agency fees, visa fees, passport fees, birth certificate fees and hopefully... a plane ticket home.

So Angi Cooper and I are offering up these few bracelets and necklaces.  100% of the proceeds will be given to the Darling family.  We ask that if you live outside of our area that you also donate $3 for shipping.   You can use the PayPal button on this blog, just leave a comment to let me know which bracelet you would like.  (Please donate through our blog if you are ordering a bracelet.)  I will continue to sell them until they are all gone, but we only have what you see here.  So if you are interested in something particular, order quickly.  

If you aren't interested in jewelry, but you'd like to donate anyway, you can donate directly to the Darling family here.  

Obviously, I'm not going to win any awards for photography here, but if we sell every bracelet we'll raise $250 for the Darlings!  Help us by spreading this post!
