Under $100 Linky Party and Goodbyes

Tomorrow our girl from Colombia leaves.  She, along with 6 other orphans from Colombia have been here for the month for a program called Summer of Hope.  It has been a wonderful, exhausting month.  We do not feel called to adopt at this time, but have been advocating for our sweet Erika and feel we have been called to intercede for her.  Please pray for Erika and all of the orphans of the world.  Rather than sharing highlights from last week's linky party (and there were some great links--thanks) I wanted to share Erika with you all--I hope that is okay!

I look forward to your links this week!

Under $100 Linky Guidelines:
1.  Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2.  Please only post ideas that cost $100 or less--it would be great if you share the cost of your project, but not necessary.
3.  Please include a brief description in link up.
4.  Grab my Under $100 button on the sidebar and include it in your post or a link to Beyond the Picket Fence so people can ind you and more great ideas.
5.  Please check and make sure your link works.  If it doesn't you can delete it and try again :)


  1. That is so great of you to do that Becky! Thanks so much for hosting!!

  2. How lovely of you to take on Erica for a month! It looks like you did lots with her and that she had a great time. Wonderful of you and your family! Must have been very hard work (physically and emotionally!!)

  3. What a beautiful story, Becky. Erica has been so blessed by your family!

  4. Sweet pics of Erika with your family. God will use this time in all of your lives. I'm sure He already has and will continue to. Because of this linky party, I've connected with some new blog friends. I really enjoy this and hope you keep doing it.

  5. How kind of you to drop a little magic in her life.

  6. Thanks for sharing the great pictures. I bet you and your family already miss Erika. That is so wonderful that you shared your lives with her :)

  7. What a great thing you did by loving this little girl like Jesus would. Looks like you gave her many wonderful experiences!

  8. What a blessing for you and this little girl. What a gift from God for this time. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  9. She's so beautiful. We'll be praying for you. My Lolly Jane partner/sister just adopted a baby boy last month {the room I linked is his new nursery}. SUCH a blessing. We'll be praying for her. Thanks for hosting!

  10. What a beautiful story about your family. Thank you for sharing it and as always thanks for hosting!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
