My friends Shane and Wendy, adoptive parents of two precious sons, are in the midst of a very special project this Christmas season. I’d love to share it with you using some of Wendy’s own words:
Have people been asking you yet? Did you make your list? Have you decided what you want for Christmas? It seems so early to be asking these questions, but Thanksgiving is creeping up on us and Christmas is around the corner.
Wanna know what I want for Christmas? I want Jesse to fill your trees with reminders that there are little ones out there who don’t care about presents but want nothing more than the love of a mother and a father.
Reece’s Rainbow has begun their yearly drive to raise grant funds for the little ones across the ocean with a little extra chromosome. The website is constantly tugging at my heart strings and I searched for a little person that we could advocate for this Christmas. I found precious Jesse. In God’s economy $1000 for Jesse is nothing. Can you help me raise $1000 so that Jesse might find his forever family?
Consider donating just $35 and receive an ornament with his face to remind you to pray for Jesse and others like him waiting for a mommy and daddy this Christmas. This is a great way to get your kids involved in reaching out with the love of Christ. How can we help to raise his grant fund so that his forever family can bring him home quickly? Could you forego a fancy coffee for a month? Could you eat in one night? Could your kids rake leaves or sell brownies? $35 is so little in our very abundant American lives. Can you sacrifice a little so that Jesse may find a family to bless? Read our story to see how we’ve been blessed by our little man with a little extra.
Wendy is auctioning off a Heather Grace Photography Mini Session on her blog in support of Jesse! If you’d like to bid, and more importantly help little Jesse on his adoption journey, please visit Wendy’s blog and leave a comment! Here are some details:

I had a great time with my Mini Sessions this year, and we capped them off with a short and sweet session on a very windy and very chilly Annapolis afternoon. The perfect weather for cuddling close together!

This family was so much fun to be around, and one of the reasons was because they spent the whole time laughing together. Mom had mentioned to me that she wanted her photographs to reflect her children having fun, and knowing that they are loved. I think those two things couldn’t help but shine through; I had so much fun just snapping away while they enjoyed each other’s company.
Thank you for traveling all the way to Annapolis to spend some time with me!

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful location, a more beautiful fall evening, or a more beautiful mamma.
