Thank you for joining us here at True Good & Beautiful as we publicly kick-start our plans to adopt Baby Tex #2!
I can’t believe we will be a family of FOUR! Praise you Jesus and someone pinch me quick so I know I’m not dreaming! 🙂
Here in this post, we have the details on how your story and our story can interweave through a puzzle fundraiser. We did a puzzle for our first adoption two years ago and its been not only a beautiful artwork but a reminder of how many kind and generous people there truly our in this world. When we found out we were blessed to be chosen for a second adoption, we knew another puzzle was the perfect idea.
This specific situation is estimated to cost around $37,500 when all is said and done. And a lot of that is due soon. We know that with God and your support it’s more than possible to achieve. We are humbly asking you to join us financially and prayerfully as we say YES to adopting again.
We’re running this fundraiser as a novena to the St. Therese. She’s the patron saint of missionaries, and both her parents are saints, too. (#FamilyGoals) The novena prayers end on her feast day, October 1st, and that’s our goal date for hitting our financial goal.
Since this situation came together super duper fast, and there isn’t much time to spare, we have to do the fundraiser without the puzzle in-hand. The real puzzle is ordered and will be here in a few weeks. Once it comes in, we’ll be putting names on the pieces and framing it, just like last time. We’ll be sure to update you as it happens.
Here’s how it works:
- We have designed a beautiful 1,500 piece puzzle
- Each piece can be “purchased” for a $25 donation or more
- You can buy one or many puzzle pieces
- Your name will be written on the pieces you purchase scaled to size
How to Donate:
- Click on the Donate button below and pay securely through PayPal
- Write a check or donate cash and hand deliver to Jonathan and/or Amanda Teixeira
- Mail a check to us (use our contact form to ask for our address)
We are very excited to sprint through this journey once again and to have you alongside cheering and praying us onward. You can get updates on the fundraiser and our adoption journey on our adoption page.
Novena Fundraiser Prayer
We pray in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
St. Therese, Little Flower of Jesus and Mary, I approach you with childlike confidence and simple humility. You pledged to spend your heaven doing good on earth. Please do good by bringing this petition to our faithful Savior, Jesus, in heaven:
I ask your intercession for the Teixeira family and their upcoming adoption.
May their family become saints as you and your family have. Ask our loving God for an abundance of blessings to rain down on them.
You teach us in your writings to trust God completely. Ask God to bless me and the Teixeiras with absolute trust in our Father. Together with them, I entrust their fundraising efforts to God. Our Heavenly Father is good, and he provides for his children. May this fundraiser’s success be a witness to the world of his abundant and providential love for all his children.
St, Therese of the Child Jesus, Pray for us!
In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
