This company makes the most beautiful and unique digital scrapbooks, that far exceed the possibilities of what you can do with other photobook companies. They also offer other great photo items, such as calendars, playing cards, greeting cards, canvases and posters. Want a nice keepsake, but too busy to deal with designing it? You can even hire a consultant to do the design for you!

Shannon has generously offered to donate the following items for our winners:

One pair of See Kai Run shoes for each child in the winning photo! Shoes will be the winner’s choice, from the ‘Smaller’ or ‘See Kai Run’ line, subject to availability.

See Kai Run shoes sport unique, trendy styles with flexible soles and breathable linings. These shoes are adorable, AND comfortable, which is a tough combination to find. And as a company, See Kai Run is one that you can feel good about buying from; they have donated thousands of pairs of shoes to children in need, as well as provided finanical support to charitable organizations such as UNICEF.

Well, we have graciously been offered a personalized set of sticky labels for each child in the second-place photograph! These labels are waterproof, dishwasher safe and UV resistant, so they will hold up over time, and are great for sippy cups, bottles, toys- anything that can get lost or mixed up! With little kids.. that’s pretty much everything.




Mabel’s Labels also carries a variety of other great products, including “mama cards”, 411 bracelets, and stationary.

This weeks Shout Out goes to Heather Thompson, of Journey To Our Destiny. After reading just a few posts in her blog, we came to realize that Heather is a very special blogger, for several reasons. She truly has a love for children, as evidenced by her 5 children; including 3 biological children, and two adopted virtual twins. The journey to adopting these beautiful babies from Vietnem was not easy, and while overseas she learned firsthand of the extreme poverty which plagues the country.


Follow Your Heart and Your Dreams Will Come True

Heather describes the day she got to see those little faces for the first time.

Why Two??
When you are pregnant with multiples, you don’t get this question.. when you are adopting multiples, it’s a different story.

Coincidence or Fate?

This story shows you why their adoption was simply meant to be.

It would have been easy for Heather to return home with her beautiful new babies, and shut out the images of poverty that she was exposed to in Vietnam. Instead, she’s choosing to do something to make a difference in the life of one family. In Vietnam, an adequate house can be built for under $2,000, so that is the fundraising goal she has set for herself. Her fundraising efforts are coming to fruition with a creative giveaway on her blog, that we think our readers will find quite appealing!

Anyone need a double stroller?

Heather is giving away a Contours Tandem stroller on her blog, and chances to win are $10.00 each, with the option for more entries for blogging about the giveaway.
The contest will end on May 30th, so hurry over to Journey to our Destiny, and show your support for Heather’s efforts. You’ll be making a real difference in a family’s life, and you just might get a $250.00 stroller out of it!

We just want to say thanks again to all of you for being a part of our community! You all are the best!
