An Unexpected Benefit of Adoption

Did you know that Kids Activities Blog exists because of an adoption?

unexpected benefit of adoption

I began thinking about this story again and how it has blessed my life when Wendy’s approached us to help spread the word about their Jr. Frosty Halloween Coupon Book that raises money for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Working with Wendy’s was  an easy “yes” because adoption changed my life.

The Wendy’s Jr. Frosty Halloween Coupon Books are available until 10/31 for $1.  I drove through my closest Wendy’s the other day and picked up one {along with their Apple Pecan Salad {yum!} for lunch.  The coupon book has 5 Jr. Frosty coupons and  raises $3 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption which has the mission that every child will have a permanent home and a loving family.

Adoption is Life Changing

 So how did adoption change my life when I am not adopted myself or have children who are adopted?

That is where Rachel comes in.  Years ago, I met Rachel at a little Dallas-area blogger get-together.  She wrote the blog, Quirky Momma, and I wrote June Cleaver Nirvana. If I remember correctly, it was a playdate for several of us at a local mall play area to let our kids play while we had “adult conversation” and could talk about blogging.

Rachel and I chatted and found that we lived just 15 minutes apart.  A few months later, she invited me and my kids over to play at her house.  We were sitting in her kitchen sipping coffee with fancy creamers…

Out of the blue, Rachel said, “I think I need to sell my blog.

Without even thinking, I replied, “I think I need to buy your blog.

Rachel was raising money toward adopting two sweet babies.  She found herself in the situation where her blog had grown so much that it wasn’t just about writing.

I was already running several websites and figured adding one more wouldn’t be a big deal and I had fallen in love with what she had created.

And that is how Kids Activities Blog was started.  A partnership began.  A partnership that has grown in ways that we could have never dreamed.
