supporting adoption

I’ve had these adoption embroideries designed for probably the past six months and finally was able to get them done this summer. I’m crazy happy with how they turned out.

While I’ve done a few embroidery items focused on the country of Africa, I have wanted to move towards offering some items that are for other countries as well. With these new sets, you have a choice of

There are two options for stitching: either the outline of the country or a hand appliqued outline of the country. Buyers also have a choice of 6 different colorways in this fun American Jane fabric.



Why adoption themed embroideries and why “love finds a way”? I’m surrounded by amazing friends who have answered the call to adopt from foreign countries. I’ve had the privilege of walking this road of almost 8 years for some. It is filled with blessing, but also such trial. And the way all of these friends persevered through it was through love. Love for these children that they knew the Lord had placed in their care. These embroideries are a tribute to those friends and all the many others out there that have walked the same path.

If you didn’t know it, this year I’m giving a portion of all my sales to Lola Children’s Home in Ethiopia. When you buy from daisyeyes handmade, you are helping to support the vision of Abebe Fantahun who started a home for HIV+ orphans and their siblings. So far I have been able to give nearly $80 of my profits to help support this ministry. I’m thankful for the ability to give out of the blessings that God has given me.


I’m hoping to showcase a few new items in the shop over the next week or so, but the biggest news (and the one I’m most excited for) is my ability to donate part of purchases. The Lord has blessed me beyond belief to be able to stay at home and grow this business. Last year was amazing and I’m beyond excited about what is going to happen this year.

One way that I am giving back this year is by donating a portion of all sales to Lola Children’s Home in Mekele, Ethiopia.


Why Lola Children’s Home?
I found out about Lola’s via our church and honestly it just seemed a good fit. While our family isn’t called at this point to adopt a child, we are still burdened for orphans and this is one way that we are seeking to support orphan care. The story of Abebe Fantahun is incredibly inspiring and I’m so excited to be able to give back a tiny bit of what God is blessing me with.
