Glad You Were Born

Happy Thursday, everyone. This is Lindsay, the Friday Give1 blogger. One of the benefits of being involved with Give1 is that I can go behind Beth’s back and let you all know that today is Beth’s birthday! In honor of her birthday, I am going to embarrass her, of course!

Beth, on behalf of the Give1 families, I cannot thank you enough for coming up with this Give1Save1 idea and being talented enough to make it so darn fabulous. You have helped so many orphans get so many steps closer to having permanent, loving families. And I know that you’re gracious enough to say that God deserves all the credit, but it took guts (and a lot of energy) to take the path He wanted you to, doing everything in your power to care for His children.

You have shown how just one person, or one dollar, can make a huge difference in this world. You make us laugh, you make us cry, you open our eyes, you inspire us…and you make us more stylish with your impeccable taste.

On a personal note, I am so glad that you were crazy enough to let me be a part of this venture. My heart is so full of joy from working on this. Through our hundreds of emails over the last few months, you have become such a dear friend to me. I can’t wait for the day that we can finally meet our girls…and each other.

Please join me in wishing Beth a very happy birthday. And I imagine Beth’s birthday wish is for this to be the best Give1 week yet…so remember to bless the Chase family this week by blasting that Donate button!


  1. Happy Birthday, Beth! I am a single, soon-to-be adoptive mom of two Ethiopian children. I read your blog faithfully and am always encouraged in my adoption journey because of you and your work with Give1Save1. I can't wait to see how God is going to continue His work in you and through you! I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me.

  2. Happy Birthday Beth!!! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating! You have done such amazing things... blessed so many people this last year and I can't wait to see what this next year holds! There need to be more people like you! ♥

  3. congratulations, amy! and thank you for the birthday wish and sweet words!
