So here's how this giveaway works. On the right side of the blog, at the top, is an "enter to win" tab. Click on that and you will have several options to enter - you can give a donation of $5 or more, and/or like our Facebook page "Journey With The Thurstons." Already like our page? You can still get an entry for that. You can donate every day for additional entries! The drawing will take place on April 30th at 11:59 pm.  We will DELIVER the freezer full of food to the winner (within 25 miles of Lynchburg,VA). This giveaway starts tonight at midnight and lasts for 10 days, so..... get ready, get set, and GO! 
All money raised will go towards our adoption expenses. We need to raise $20,000 to being Mahesh home. We are currently 42% of the way there!
May the best man (or woman) win!

Hope: One Drop Changes Everything

We invite you to join us on our journey to becoming parents. Over the last 8 years, we have longed to start a family, but because of our infertility we have been unsuccessful. After a ton of praying, the Lord placed the desire in our hearts to begin the adoption process. During a return trip to India, we felt led to adopt Mahesh. He is a sweet, kind 10 year old boy that we got to spend time with over the last few years. How awesome that God would place it on our hearts 2 years after meeting Mahesh to adopt him! We have partnered with Chrome Buffalo to sell this great t-shirt! We will receive $11.00 for every shirt that is purchased in the next 10 days and each dollar earned will go towards bringing Mahesh home. Also, we would LOVE to receive a picture of you wearing the t-shirt you purchased! It would give us such joy to one day show Mahesh pictures of those who loved him and helped us bring him home!

Go to to order your shirt today!
