I have some very dear friends who are on the journey to adopting an Ethiopian baby!! Luke and Angie Smith and their two children, Eli and Naomi, live in Pickerington, OH, just outside of Columbus, OH. They are on the path to adopting a baby and they are number 113 on the list for a boy and 134 on the list for a girl. They are open to adopting either. As you might know, adoption is very expensive. The average adoption costs are between 20,000 and 30,000. My goal is to assist them with the funds needed to adopt their first baby, their third child! Specifically, my goal is to raise 500.00 per mile or $6500.00. Honestly, as I start crunching numbers this goal seems VERY DOABLE… I have 960 Facebook friends if 500 of you would commit to $1.00 for every mile ($13.00) I will have met my goal! Or if 250 of you would commit to $2.00 for every mile ($26.00), I will have met my goal!

So, will you motivate me to continue this crazy path, this crazy thought that I, a 47 year old FAT man who has never run, can have the tenacity, the ability, and the stamina to run 13.1 miles for the sake of orphans? I’m doing the hard part. Will you agree to come along side of me and help me raise $6500.00 for Luke and Angie Smith by giving $13.00… $13.00 to welcome a young boy or girl from Ethiopia to the home of the Smith’s!!

I started this because of a challenge… NOW I challenge you! Help me help orphans and come alongside a beautiful couple who are following God’s call to adopt a child from Ethiopia! Motivate me by pledging to give!
