New Year, New Fundraiser!

We want to thank each and every one of you that donated to us in 2011.  I am continually amazed and overwhelmed by your love and support.  Whether is was donating to receive a Christmas ornament, buying coffee, giving us a donation for our Christmas present, sending  us a check just because or clicking on the blog ads, we were able to raise about $1,000 from your generosity.  Words cannot express our gratitude.  Thank you.

It's a new year and new fundraiser.  Friends of ours who adopted last year had great success with a puzzle piece fundraiser. So we are going to borrow this idea.  Thanks to the Ks!  The concept is that you sponsor a puzzle piece by donating $5.  You may sponsor as many pieces as you'd like.  For each $5 donation, we will write your name on the back of the puzzle piece.  So if you donate $10, your name will go on two puzzle pieces.  Once all the pieces have been sponsored, we will put the puzzle together and frame it to hang in the baby's room.  Our child can look at the back of the puzzle anytime and know how much they are loved by you. 

It's a ambitious puzzle - 1,000 pieces.  To get the fundraiser going, we are going to write the names of people that have already sent us a check just because.

We chose a United States license plates map because we want to decorate the baby's room in a travel theme.  I know, a little unconventional but it will work for a girl or a boy.  We enjoy travel and I think it will be really cool.  We've already started looking at what we like and will need for when the baby arrives and asking parents what are the essentials.  Your advice or must have ideas are welcome!  You never know when we are going to get a call.  Very exciting!
