Many of you are now familiar with the names Merle and Kim Zimmerman. They are an adoptive couple who are driven to help orphans, and God used them in a significant way to help bring our Katie-bird home.
One of their daughters, Linsey Smoker, is a giver just like her parents, and shares their passion for orphan care and adoption. Months before Linsey and I and our little daughters had even met for the first time…
…Linsey’s heart had gone out to our tiny Katie-bird, and she and a whole team of helpers put together a special Valentine’s Day adoption fundraiser called Valentines for Veronika!
She wants you to know that this year’s Valentines for Veronika fundraiser has begun, and you are very welcome to order some tasty homemade treats for your loved ones!
For more information, please visit the Valentines for Veronika website, and email Linsey at firstname.lastname@example.org
She is planning to divide the proceeds between the adoption expenses for Lina Carpenter, another tiny child from Katie’s former orphanage, and Katie’s care fund. Lina’s mom, Stephanie, said goodbye to Lina at the orphanage just this morning after a week of visiting her. We’re praying that God will allow Brian and Stephanie to bring their tiny girl home without even a second of unnecessary delay!
So if you’ve been waiting for the big opening day on Valentines for Veronika, you need wait no longer! The time has come!
P. S. You are also very welcome to help Linsey’s efforts by spreading the word on Facebook or your blog! This is a fun and tasty way to help make a difference! Thank you to every one of you who helps to make this fundraiser a success!
