Our biggest Fundraiser yet !!!!

We have been working over time to have enough Fleece blankets and wood signs to have a huge fundraiser for our little buddy Srecko aka. Scott. Remember that little guy, how could you forget. We talk about him a lot.. He is always on our minds!!! He is needed 1.500.00 dollars for his part of fees to come to the USA with his new family.. He needs a plane ticket, and medical exam, and his visa approval from the US Embassy to be able to travel to the USA.. We are having a big sale on our adoption fundraising stores !!! We have three stores to get ready , so it has taken many hours to get everything ready ..

Right now we are having our biggest fundraiser yet!!!! We are helping a very sweet family to raise the funds to be able to travel and bring their new son home. You see they are adopting a third child from E.E. and fell a little short to be able to travel to pick him up. This little guy is 7 ~ yes that is right he is seven and he has been waiting seven~7~ long years for a family to come and get him. He has seen many new families come and get their new child and he watches as they leave . Waiting for his family to come and get him. This little guy has C.P.~ Cerebral Palsy and he really could use some therapies to help him. Please help us in helping The Severson family to be able to raise the much needed funds to bring their son home... 25 % of every sale of a BLANKET OR WOOD SIGN will go to the Severson family fund to help bring home their son. His travel expenses are around 1,500.00 dollars to get his plane ticket , medical and visa for their son to leave the country he was born in. We also will have a chip in set up if you would just like to donate to help the Severson family....
Thank you so much for shopping Mama Bears Fleece Blankets !!!

Thank you so much for shopping The Campbell's Country Store !!!!
Also we are having this fundraiser on our E-Bay Store also~ But on the E-Bay Store you will be donating two times..One time will donate 25% to the Severson family and then there is 10% for Breast Cancer or Reece;s for every blanket sold.
So if you would like to do a double donation for the holidays, you can shop our E-BAY Store @
Visit us HERE!

You can also donate by the chip in on the side of our blog, it will go right in the Severson family fund for them to travel to get their son...You can also visit The Severson Family Blog @

We will be having the fundraiser starting today until Dec 20th, 2010. We sure hope and pray we will have all his funds needed to purchase his plane ticket and pay his other fees and maybe have a little left over for him to have a very nice dinner in his first country before he gets on that plane for the USA... BOY WILL WE BE VERY HAPPY WHEN WE CAN POST THAT OUR LITTLE BUDDY HAS ENOUGH MONEY TO BE ABLE TO COME HOME TO HIS FAMILY!!! That would really make us so happy for Christmas!!! All i want for Christmas is Srecko to have enough funds to go home to his new family... Please God help us raise the much needed funds , very very soon!!!
Thank you all so much,
Gary & Jody

Orphans Prayer


Each night before I go to bed I fold my hands and bow my head
Praying for a family and the day she will come for me I ask God
to watch over my friends at the orphanage The place that I call home
Wishing we find families and rooms of our very own.
I finish my prayers and climb into bed
Hoping that God heard what I said
My prayers usually turn out to be my dreams at night
Hoping they will be standing there when I wake to the morning light
One very special morning, I will hear their call
I jump out of bed and run down the hall!
Is it them, Is it them, is that why they've called my name?
Running I hear them shout "It's them, it's them, they finally came!"
Have all my prayers been answered, have all my dreams come true
There they are in front of me, Oh Mama & Papa! Oh Mama & Papa!!
Is it really you?

"Yes, it is my darling, We've come to take you home,"
"We will love, protect and cherish and you will never be alone."
Mama & Papa looks at me so differently a look so new to me,
They touch me so gently, just as I dreamed it would be.
As I look into their eyes I watch them fill with water,
They embrace me and whisper, "I love you so my daughter".
They take my hand and hold it tight, I will never
let it go, I hold with all my might. Hand in hand we walk together,
No one needs to speak; we know this is forever.
And through our journey when we finally meet each other,
She will have found her dream and I will have found my mother & father.

Yes, i know this talks about a girl, but we think of a little guy. He really needs to get to have his own family. A mommy and daddy of his own.. A sister and brother also.

I am so happy for our family and friends , that we could all be together for Thanksgiving. We had really awesome food and lots of family time. We are greatful for all of the food and family...

But i really still think about all the orphans , that we got to see while adopting Bella...One little guy still stands out.. Do you all know who that is??? Yes that would be Srecko!!! We really want to see this little guy be able to come home to his family... We are working on a fundraisier to get his part of the adoption part paid for him to get home .. That would be his airfare, medical and visa. We will be posting our fundraisier very soon. He needs 1,500. to get his ticket and medical and visa to come to the USA...Yes , that is all he needs for his part to be paid for . What a gift that would be for Christmas!!! For him and for our family , so we would know that his is home with his family ~The Severson Family~

Check back soon for details!!!!

Happy Gottcha day and 2 years of being a Campbell !!

This is of Bella , when she was still at her first home.. So tiny , We so loved getting new pictures of Bella as we waited to go and get her. She is such a blessing in our family. We all love her so much.

Bella and Natalie going for a walk around the house. Bella is the big auntie of Natalie. They are so cute!!!

Dixie : the kiddos O.T therapist , working with all three of the kiddos at once. Bella is still working hard to learn new things. Now that she has Chrissie here with her , they find lots of trouble.

Big sister Deztany:: Teaching her little siblings.. All the big kiddos take turns working with their little siblings. THEY LOVE TO SEE THEM LEARN !!

Bella walking all around the house, by herself.. She is doing so awesome. Now she will be able to keep up with the big kiddos. Bella has been a Campbell now for 2 years!! We love that she was able to join our family.. Bella has worked very hard to learn many new things in the last two years. She gets more attention than she probably thought was ever possible.. There is always somebody there to help her learn , and to help keep her and Chrissie out of trouble.

I would do it all over again to get Bella:: I had never been on an airplane, that is until the trip to get Bella. We new from the start that Bella was severely delayed , but it never made any difference to us. We loved her from the start and we love her so much more now that she has been home for two years... She is like a sponge, she is soaking up all the information she can. Bella is very smart, she just needed her family to help bring it all out.

If you feel that nudge , that calling , or what ever you want to call it. That feeling that your family is not complete, go for it. Step out and adopt an orphan, it is so worth it. Our Bella has been such a joy to our family. It sure was worth that time away from our other children. We were so worried to leave the children at home. But the time went quick and soon we were home with our new daughter. Bella has been such a snuggle bear , she loves to get up with you and have you rub her face and snuggle you. We so enjoy holding her and snuggling her.

Every child deserves a family to grow up in. Can you adopt an orphan ? If you can they are so worth all the work of getting the paperwork done and the travel time away from home AND YOUR OTHER CHILDREN. YES, WE MISSED OUR FAMILY WHEN WE WERE GONE.But we all did wonderful.

I will never forget the first picture we saw of Bella. That was our Princess waiting for us to come and get her. It never mattered what they said was wrong with our Bella , we were going to get her home with us forever. We were told from the very begining that Bella was very delayed, and our we sure we want to adopt her. Yes, we still wanted to adopt our little Bella, she was our little Princess from the first time we saw her. We our so so happy that we stepped out of our comfort zone to travel and get our little Bella home.
Happy 2 years of being a Campbell ~Bella Faith ~ We love you dearly !!!!

Mom , Dad , and all of your family..

And The Winner Is

Congratulations Jody aka Mom on a great honor. Jody was chosen as the 2010 woman of distinction this evening out of a group of 11 nominees. The local newspaper holds this contest each year to recognize outstanding women in our area for their different accomplishments. She was nominated by our friend Denise back in October for being such a special person and caring for everyone she comes in contact with.We all felt confident that she would be chosen as the winner, but being the humble person she is she was hoping someone else would be chosen. You are very special to all of us and we are so proud of you. Congratulations from the whole crew
