one dollar adoption

i found another amazing family out there who is adopting a very special needs little boy named william. one of her recent posts asked if everyone who reads her blog could consider donating $1.00 to her fund and then passing on her blog and story then they will be that much closer to rescuing this sweet baby. he is currently in liberia and malaria runs rampant there so the sooner the better to get him out of there. he has severe facial deformities (severe tessier 4 cleft lip and palate), and could die from infection.

please consider contributing to this families needs and also to post about them on your blog too :)

One Dollar Adoption

Hi guys,
As you may know we have to raise $15,000 for our adoption of William. His adoption was unexpected as we had adopted our daughter from Liberia last year and thought we would wait a while to adopt another child. When our agency sent out the plea to find William a family I could not help but inquire about the little guy. Other families had interest but later decided his needs were more than they could handle at this time. We have a small ammount of savings but nothing near what our adoption and travel fees are. So we are asking for your help.

We are asking if it at all might be possible for each person who reads our blog to search their hearts and pray and decide if William's adoption may be something you might want to donate towards. We are not asking for much. If each person who reads out blog would donate a $1 and then pass our story and blog address on to their family and friends and ask them to do the same, and with the Lord Almighty's help we may be able to do this.

Please consider our little guy! We are forever grateful for your donations, love and especially your prayers. Prayer is SUCH an amazing force.

If you would like to send a check please send it to

Acres of Hope, Liberia, Inc
29525 Four Corners Store Road
Mason, Wisconsin 54856

Please make checks out to : Acres of Hope, Liberia

We want you to feel comfortable donating to William's cause. This is why we ask you make checks out to our agency. If for some reason you would like to send a check directly to us, please email me at and I will give you the info.
If you prefer to use paypal we have set up an account for that as well. All donations will receive a receipt from paypal for tax purposes etc. On the side bar is a button for a paypal donation.

Thank you so much for your love and support.

With all our love and blessings,

William's Mom and Family
