Out of our Comfort Zone

We have totally stepped out of our comfort zone during this adoption process. We have become advocates for adoption. We speak out about the international orphan crisis. We have spoken to groups about opportunities to support orphans through groups like World Vision and Compassion International. We have also gotten very creative in our efforts to raise funds. 

I have had a couple of friends ask me for the information for our latest fundraising opportunity. So, I am posting the information here. Basically, you pay $20 and get a $50 gift certificate good at over 18,000 restaurants nationwide.

Hello Family and Friends,
We are excited to share an opportunity with you that will help us to fundraise for our adoption as well as benefit those who make a thoughtful contribution in our support.  As you all know, Christy and I are working  to raise the rest of the money we will need to bring our daughter home from China.
In order to alleviate a portion of the cost, we have partnered with Coupaide to jumpstart a fundraising campaign that will give us the chance to reach out to family, friends, friends of friends, and so on.  Coupaide offers $50 certificates for only $20!  Half of each sale will go towards our adoption, which has the potential to make a great difference in regard to the overall cost. offers certificates for thousands of restaurants in cities all across the United States.  These certificates make great gifts, never expire, and can be used immediately upon your donation. 
There are two ways you can support our fundraising campaign:
1    1.)    Purchase a certificate on our personalized Coupaide website.  Visit
2    2.)    Forward this e-mail on to friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors – help us to share our story and bring Fatih home!
We thank you for your support and we invite you to check out our campaign! You can also visit our blog for pictures, videos, and updated progress reports on our adoption effort. You can find it at
