Piecing it Together

Good Morning Everyone! Today is an especially exciting day in the Peterson house because today is the day we officially kick off our adoption! We are embarking on our very first fundraiser and let me just say I am extremely excited about it. We're just one little step closer to holding our baby girl or boy in our arms. The fundraiser is really simple, but it's a sweet way for our friends and family to be involved in bringing Baby Peterson home. I have purchased a 500 piece puzzle. I haven't done a puzzle since I was a kid at the beach, so I'm actually a little excited to start working on a big one like this! Here is how the fundraiser will work:

Each piece of the puzzle will represent one person. One person who brought Baby P. a step closer to home! We are asking for a donation of $5 (But we'll gladly accept more!) to own a piece to our adoption puzzle. When you donate, your name will be written on a piece. When all of the pieces have been claimed, we will put it together and have it framed for Baby P's new room! It will hang as a sweet reminder of how many people helped to bring our kiddo home.

Can I just say I think this puzzle is so cute for our Sweet P's new room?! It looks like a circus came to Boerne and is parading around Town Square. Love it.

The name of the painting is Village Celebration. Perfect! If you want to be a piece to our adoption puzzle then please email me at and I'll let you know where you can mail your donation, or grab us by the arm the next time you see us! I'm working on getting a paypal button placed on this blog in a few days which should make it much easier for everyone. 500 people is alot!!! I dont even think I have that many close friends. But we are sure that God is going to move in ways we could never have imagined. We're excited to see it completed and will keep ya'll up to date on how its going!


  1. Love that idea and loved ALL the responses on Facebook. Owen says, "Sign me up!" He wants to help his friend come home! We are praying for you.

  2. Aww thanks Owen!! I cant wait to add Owens name to the puzzle I bet our little one will get a big kick out of that!
