AND THE WHAM-BAM-THANKYA-MA'AM GRAND TOTAL IS...

with our FB silent auction we made an amazing, unexpected, what did you say?, how much!?!, i can't believe it!, incredibly exciting total of

$2,925!!!!

this is HUGE!

we expected to make arounk $2Kish... maybe a little more or a little less.

BUT with all of your help -- and the INSANE amount of bids placed, we are literally right there almost at the $3K mark!!! YAAAAY!!!

thank you thank you! friends! family! friends of friends! friends of family! and TOTAL STRANGERS! y'all are awesome! thank you to every person who shared our page, placed a bid, liked our page, and perused our auction items!

and a very *SPECIAL* thank you to every single person who donated! we had an amazing 35 people donate a total of 84 items that went up for bid! ah! i cannot get over it! we are surrounded by so much talent and such an incredible amount of generosity!

we love each and every one of you so dearly! you are helping bring our baby home!

i can't say it enough... thank. you.

with the $2,925 from the auction + the amount we had previously raised, we only have $2,012 -- that's two thousand and twelve dollars(!!!) left to raise before we've paid for our initial agency fees...

and paying your initial agency fees... means we can officially be "matched" with a child! so OF COURSE we feel the urgency to get this portion paid just as quickly as possible!!!!!

will you help us??

we have so many ways to raise $$$! first and foremost is...
OUR ADOPTION T-SHIRTS!!!
