Accepted, Saved, Rescued, Redeemed, Chosen, Promised.

I came across this terrific "gift with a purpose" idea today while on facebook. A mom I know through our homeschool group is selling t-shirts to raise money for their 2nd adoption. As soon as I saw these beautiful shirts, I knew I just had to share them with my readers here at Graceland since so many of you have a heart for adoption. This shirt is great looking and for a great just don't get any better than that!

Here is Ashley and her family's story:

We are the Fumia Family and we have four boys. We are passionate about Jesus Christ and He is the one who leads and guides us. He guided us to adopt a son from an orphanage in Ukraine in 2009 and He is sending us back to the same orphanage to adopt again. We are adopting a little girl named Natasha. She is very excited we are coming and we will find out any day when we are leaving. It is very important that we get her out of there as soon as possible because she just got transferred to the "big kid" orphanage. Bad things happen there and I do not want her to stay in there longer than she has to.

We need a little over $13,000 more and we will be traveling VERY soon. We are trusting that God is going to provide every penny we need to bring this little girl home. Her bedroom is almost finished and we want her to be able to sleep in her own bed. She has prayed her whole life for a family and we will not allow finances to get in the way of her having her dream. It WILL happen and she will have a family.

We are very proud of the t-shirts. They are going to be beautiful. The shirt is chocolate brown and they costs $15.00. Youth sizes are S-L and Adult sizes are S-XXXL We will be putting in the order in about a week and then it will take about 2 weeks to receive the shirts from the printer. You can pay through paypal by going to my blog ( or you can send a check by mail:

Payable to:
Ashley Fumia
5249 Highway 35 South
Forest, MS 39074

Or if you are local and know how to get it to me in person, that is fine, too. :)

If shirts are not your thing, but you want to donate... We offer tax deductions to your donations. See the upper right hand corner of our blog on how to do that. If you do not care about it being a tax write off, you can just donate through the paypal button.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and we would love for you to agree in prayer with us. There are so many ups and downs in adoption. We will be in Ukraine for almost two months. We will have to leave some of our children behind and I appreciate your prayers for that as well. My husband will return home after court with 2 of our children and I will stay behind and bring Natasha home. And just continue to pray for finances that we will get everything we need.

Thank you all!!!! We love you and more importantly, God loves and desires you more than you can even comprehend!!!
