Hi Everyone! I want to share about another friend whose soap business is supporting adoption. Cheryl, also lived down the hall from me at UNC-Greensboro. She, her husband, and daughters are currently waiting to be matched for a domestic adoption. They are actually one of the Christian Adoption Services waiting families (it's a small world- I haven't seen Cheryl and Ted in almost 15 years and now I see them a couple times a year at CAS functions). Please check out Cheryl's soaps at Bright Star Soaps: http://www.etsy.com/shop/brightstarsoaps and help them with their adoption.
I can personally attest the soaps smell great, and are beautiful....

I want to share with you all about a great gift idea for Christmas. A dormmate of mine from UNC-Greensboro has a homemade soap and lotion company that you should check out at http://www.catiebeth.com/. Catherine and her family adopted a little boy from Ethiopia earlier this year and now she is donating her profits to other families that God has lead to adopt.
As most of you know I work for Christian Adoption Services and it's also the agency that we adopted Sara through. We are in need of a Spanish Speaking Volunteer.......
Please see Gretchen's post below:
Most of you don't know but Sheryl (another Counselor) and I spent 3 days in Wilmington last week networking at the annual conference for health departments in NC. Well Sheryl did the networking and I assisted (total honesty should be good!). We made MANY great contacts throughout the state and most people were eager to get their hands on our information to pass out to their pregnant clients.
We were asked several times for packets in Spanish and not just English to be able to present the option of adoption to Spanish women/men. We are seeking a volunteer who would be able to translate 5 pieces of papers into Spanish which would help explore adoption as an option.
If you are that person or you know of a person who might be interested feel free to have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
