Friends helping me put together silent auction baskets at my mom’s house
Our big fundraiser (a silent auction/trivia night) for our adoption is next Saturday. Can’t go? No worries! We made the silent auction viral by setting up a new website. Please stop by and take a look at forty really cool items/baskets up for bid. All proceeds will go directly toward our adoption. Online bidding ends next Friday, June 22nd.
You can also participate via Facebook. I have a photo album set up, so it’s super easy to share individual photos on your timeline or the entire album!
What if nobody comes to our fundraiser? It seems like so many people I talk to have a prior engagement. I’ve been on my knees praying about this. Not so much that lots of people would come and we’d raise what we need for our adoption, but that I’d surrender the worry. Lately, I’ve been really convicted about my tendency to worry, worry, worry. 1 Peter 5:7 has become my battle cry.
I’m celebrating some amazing warrior friends, without whom this fundraiser would not be happening. When we bring our little one home from the Congo, I hope they realize what a huge role they played in making us a forever family.
Brogan’s celebrating an adorable book called Scaredy Squirrel and I’m celebrating the Cadbury chocolate we got in the mail from a certain awesome someone. Yum, yum, yum!
I’m camping out tonight with 10 junior high girls and 2 awesome ladies. We’re eating S’mores and sleeping in a tent and everything.
