{ THE STORY }
The Adopt Shoppe is honored to share the story of remarkable women in Uganda who hand make these beads from recycled paper. The women carefully roll strips of magazines by hand into lovely, unique and earthy looking beads. Prior to learning how to make these beads, most of the women "picked trash" or turned to prostitution to provide for their children. Most of us have a hard time even imagining such a life. Can you fathom if YOU, your WIFE, your MOTHER, your SISTER, or even your DAUGHTER had to sell her own body into prostitution to provide the most BASIC necessities for yourself or your children? By purchasing these necklaces, you help a mother earn a sustainable income to provide for her family. You also help our family bring our child home. It is a beautiful, full circle story of the body of Christ.

{ WHY we sell these }
We are adopting a baby from Taiwan! ALL proceeds go towards our adoption! We also wanted to do something beyond ourselves. We wanted to help others too. By purchasing these necklaces, you help us with our adoption AND help a courageous woman in Uganda provide the very basic necessities for her family.
