{Meet the Schmelzer's + a Giveaway!}

I'm so excited that the first month of Poppie Lane partnering with an adoptive family went extremely well! I can't believe it's already a second month and time to partner with another family - time flies! :) I am so thrilled to introduce you to the beautiful Schmelzer Family ...

Jody, Alison and their three adorable children are adding a little Ethiopian princess to their family. They are currently #44 on the wait list and are praying to be in the 30's next month. I love the way Alison describes what happened after she initially felt like God might be calling them to adoption...

"God's confirmations began to pour in, one right after the other. He used His Word, circumstances, prayer, other people...it was crazy. We decided just to keep this between us and the Lord because we needed to make this decision without anyone else's opinions. The cool thing was, the Lord was using other people in our lives to affirm His will, and they did not even know it!

We began to pray this prayer..."Lord, break our hearts for what breaks Yours." And He did. Our hearts became broken for these precious babies in this devastatingly poor, broken country. It was undeniable. God's heart breaks for orphans, and ours were breaking too. We knew what our response would be. We would follow Him in obedience to bring our sweet baby girl home."


 To read even more about their adoption journey (which is just incredible) head on over to Alison's blog. :)

Would you like to be a part of God's amazing work in their lives? Would you like to help them bring home their precious little girl? For the next month 50% of all Poppie Lane profit will go toward their adoption!! So, head on over to the shop and pick something out for yourself or a friend (and hey, Mother's Day is coming up!) Let's help them bring home their baby girl!
