Fundraising to Bring Alyssa Home

An Amazing Christian family has such a wonderful, and uplifting blog, and they do something called CRAZY LOVE - they have huge hearts for orphans - check out their blog, and the CRAZY LOVE post HERE.   We have several fundraising things going on now to help us to raise the funds needed to get our third sweethert home from China.  We are in the paperchase, with our last home study visits done this week, and waiting on the FBI fingerprint clearance so we can get our final copies then it's off to immigration!!

We have been baking like CRAZY, making pound cakes and pies, and have made enough with that to cover our home study, and our immigration and USCIS fingerprinting fees!! - God has sent a wonderful number of people to place orders!  We have been baking pretty much every night for about a month now.  We are working on organizing a yard sale, as well as a give away of a beautiful Ridgeway Waterfall Clock - It is still in the box - it was my gift for 25 years service with the company I work for, and I can think of no better use for it than to help us to raise some of the funds we need to bring our daughter home.  With that said, we have added a "Chip In" and a picture of the clock to our blog.  It is at the very top, right hand side.

We have also set up an account with The Shepherd's Crook, a wonderful organization who helps families raise money through a tax deductible account set up in the child's name.  There are two ways to contribute:  by mailing a check,  to The Shepherd's Crook Ministries, PO Box 773, West Chester,  OH 45071, and putting our daughter's name in the memo line of your check, or by an on-line contribution, which can be made at:  www.theshepherdscrook.org/donate/now and typing our daugher's name in the designate field:  The name for either the memo line, or designate field on line is Alyssa Hope Jiang Bishop.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who have donated, and who will continue to help us to bring our little girl home!!  God's blessings to you all!!
