I am so glad to announce that this is the FINAL fund raiser for our waiting daughter!!! We still are unsure of when we will meet her. We are really hoping to go in May or June at the latest.....but God only knows. As most of you know we have been doing different fund raisers over the last 6 months to off-set the $34,000 adoption expenses (on top of the $45,000 we spent on Paul and Audrey's adoptions......without doing any fund raising). Here's a rundown on the blessings that we have received in the last 6 months:

$2000 from a garage sale
$1000 on our soup supper
$1000 on the sale of purses, rice bags, hair-bows. personalized scrapbooks, homemade jam
$500 on eBay items
$5000 on private cash donations
$4000 grant from Shoahannah's Hope
$2000 anticipated grant from the state of Ohio for adopting a special needs child
$1000 profit so far from selling lia sophia

So that brings us to $16,500 which is FABULOUS!!!!!!! but.....we still have $17,500 to go. So I am doing a Cyber lia sophia jewelry show. I have been selling this jewelry for about 6 weeks. It is high quality fashion jewelry that has a life time guarantee. 30% of all sales will go directly to our fundraising effort. So here are the details if you are interested in helping our family out. Thanks...Alison
