Fundraiser auction - ended

This fundraiser is over and we want to thank everyone who participated!!!!  You are  amazing and we are so blessed to have you help us bring our daughter home.   There were a few items below that had zero bids and are still left.  If anyone is interested in any of those items, please e-mail me.

We are fundraising through this adoption (as hard as it is)  as we were not ready financially to start another adoption.  Believe me, this is not easy and I would prefer not to.    As I've watched and met other families fundraise to help with the adoption fees, I knew that this is what we too would need to do.   I've made so many new friends
through this journey so far, and I know there are many more friendships to come. 

We are so blessed to have three beautiful children adopted from China.  We are now waiting on LOA for Faith who is 11 years old and in Tianjin, China.    I first saw our daughter, Faith, Feb. 2010 and was immediately smitten with her.  After months of prayer and knowing in my heart that she was God's plan for our family, we submitted our paperwork in the fall of last year.    My eyes and heart have been opened as I couldn't have imagined the support that we've been given. 

Now that we are waiting on LOA, we need to fundraise for the orphanage donation.  We are blessed that Faith's orphanage donation was reduced.  We are hoping and praying that this fundraiser gets us started on this fee.  Below are pictures (so sorry for the blurriness - it's the camera, or maybe it's the photographer - me).  Under the picture is a description with "starting bid".  Simply e-mail me with your bid and I'll post it.  If you are outbid I'll notify you so you have the opportunity to bid again.  Please note that shipping will be added to the final bid.  I'll notify all winners once the auction ends.
Also, please make sure you give the description in your e-mail.  I'll verify as well when I e-mail you back.  Winning bids can be paid through the "donate" button on the right (which is through paypal).

If you'd like to help us with the expenses, but wouldn't like to bid, you can hit the "donate" button on the right and make a donation, via paypal.  We truly appreciate your generosity.  Please spread the word too!!

We hope you will help us with this fundraiser as each event has helped us get closer to bringing our daughter home!!!!  There really are some great gift items!  Please take a look!!!
