Bead Necklaces-Pics

Adoption update coming soon, but for now, I have 6 Bead Necklaces to sell. The sale of these necklaces I have on hand will help us purchase additional profile books about our family so we can start applying to agencies in about 2 weeks for birth families to view.
I know most of us our visual people, so I have taken pics of the necklaces I have on hand now. They are $20 and I can mail them anywhere.

These would make great gifts to keep on hand when you want to cheer up a friend, or to give to teachers at the start of the school year.
For those who do not know the story of the beautiful necklaces here it is:
These necklaces are made from recycled paper by Ugandan women as a way for them to provide for their families. The roll the beads by hand, dip them in varnish, and thread them onto the string. Prior to learning how to make these beads, most of the women “picked trash” or turned to prostitution to provide for their children.

The purchase of one of these necklaces helps in 3 ways. One for the Ugandan women and their families, two you will also feed a child in Uganda, and 3 you are helping us bring a child into our family through adoption. Very cool!
