For those of you who would like to help us bring in the finances needed to accomplish the boys adoption, but prefer something tangible in return for your financial gift, we have designed a t-shirt.
What does it all means...
The heart symbolizes the heart of God. We chose to make it blue and gold, the national colors of Ukraine. The triangle is the adoption triad, symbolizing the child, the birth family, and the adoptive family. We have placed a cross in the center to signify our personal belief that it can only come to fruition and prosper if Jesus Christ is at the center of it. Text around the left side of the heart reads ...For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future .Jeremiah 29:11... The same scripture verse skirts the right side of the heart, but in Russian, as our children all speak Russian as their first language.
The kids all helped to develop this design. I knew we needed the adoption symbol and the cross at the center. The kids helped with the color choices. and Tanya ensured the Russian was exactly right. We contracted with a local organization that employs the developmentally disabled to do the final draft design and screen printing of the shirts.
Shirts are $15 each. All sizes available youth through plus size. If you are not local please add $5 to cover shipping cost. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. remit payment at paypal.com via gift option, using email email@example.com
On behalf of our waiting children, "thank you". May the Lord bless the work of our hands and your sacrificial giving to place the orphan into a family.
