Our online auction to raise funds for our adoption closed a couple of weeks ago. It was a lot of fun, and turned out to be very successful! We are very fortunate to have many generous and talented friend who are supporting us on this journey. We are so grateful for all the many ways people have encouraged us, and this auction was a neat way for people to support us with their talents, instead of financially.
The last two weeks have been full of invoicing, answering questions, contacting donors, and shipping items. Yesterday we received the very last payment for an item, and i ma pleased to announce that the total raised towards our adoption (after Paypal fees, shipping costs, and our gift card giveaway) was a whopping $1244.30! Thank you to all who participated!
We still have a couple of items that did not get any bids, and other folks are telling us that thy’d like to donate in some way. We haven’t decided yet, but it’s possible that we’ll do another auction in the future. In the meantime, our garage is full of stuff for the ginormous yard sale we plan to have on May 2. Many people have donated stuff for this event, too, and we are so grateful!
We just cannot fathom how we are so lucky to have such generous, supporting friends. Thank you all, so much, for all of your love. It means the world to us, and will someday mean a lot to a little boy who is waiting for us to go get him. Thank you. Thank you.
