MARSHFIELD, Mo. –- Fourth grader Brylee Clift is selling homemade product online and in a family salon to help to raise money so that three orphans from Brazil can be adopted here in the U.S.

Nine-year-old Brylee loves spending time with her brother and two cousins, three-year-old Oakley and nine-month-old Silo Wutke.

But Brylee wants to see her family grow and she's helping her aunt and uncle make that happen.

“It’s a salt scrub,” says Brylee. “All you do is put in on your hands, scrub and rinse it off and it makes all the dead skin go off.”

Brylee makes jars of smoothing hand scrub and sells them for $3 a piece to raise money to help the Wutke's adopt three siblings from Brazil.

“We were praying if God,” says Jessica Wutke, Brylee’s aunt. “Show us if we should adopt or have more of our own. No one knew that but me and my husband and these children were presented to us by a family friend. We just felt like it was and answered prayer.”

Brylee started a Facebook page called Miss B's Mission and orders for the homemade hand scrub started pouring in.

“We've sold more than 700 jars so far,” says Jessica.

She works with her family to put the jars together tirelessly just about every night. Brylee even added a special touch on the label just showing how big her heart is.

“Those are the kids in Brazil,” says Brylee. “And I drew them and put a heart around them.”

The sight of the label affected Jessica the most.

“I saw it and I just immediately got tears because I couldn't have done it myself,” says Jessica. “And this fundraiser has actually been the biggest one so far.”

As for Brylee, she'll keep taking orders, filling jars and praying the children from Brazil will make their way home to the Ozarks.

“I’m just really exited,” says Brylee.

The family said it is very difficult to adopt children from Brazil because they try to keep the children in their country. Since the siblings have been in the orphanage for two years, the adoption process now goes global.
