I've never really seen anything like this before!  It's like this AMAZING raffle - where you get to purchase "Puzzle Pieces" from The Road Less Traveled: Erica's Blog - to help bring their baby home from Ethiopia.  This is how it works:

"In order to be entered in the IT's A FAMILY AFFAIR fund raiser you'll need tickets. These tickets are in the form of a puzzle piece that will help put our puzzle together and raise our referral fee necessary to say YES when we see our precious daughters face. Each piece is $10. For this giveaway ONLY we're doing 3 pieces for $25. (you can click on the puzzle piece on the left side of our blog to purchase your piece/pieces) Your name/family name/whatever you want will be permanently written on the back of your piece/pieces and we'll add them to our puzzle which will eventually be framed to hang in our home as a permanent reminder of the people who helped bring our little girl into her forever family.
Each piece purchased will also give you that many entries into the giveaway."

CHECK OUT THIS GIVEAWAY!!! HOLY SMOKES!!! HOW AMAZING IS THAT!! And that is just the tangible part of it all... To know that you were able to help in a small way to bring an orphan home is a GIFT all in itself!!!

1 Timothy 6: 17-19
“Command those who are rich in this present world … to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”

Luke 6:38
 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” 

Romans 12:13
 “Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”

The adoption of your baby girl!
