Donations are great, but it is not our main focus. Building our family is what is most important to us. I am confident when the time comes, we'll find the money. No, we're not planning to rob a bank. I just have faith that things will work out. The party was about raising money, but it was also about asking people to share our story. Word of mouth is a powerful tool and the networking part of the party was just as important as the donations. At the party, we handed out our "touch cards" with our adoption information, shared our profile book and guests talked to us about adoption. You never know, friend of a friend could hear about adoption and think of us. The bottom line is we are ready to start our family and we are doing everything we can to make that happen. If you would like more information about how you can help us spread the word, click the "How You Can Help!" tab at the top.
We're feeling pretty good after the party. We are recharged by your enthusiasm and ready for whatever comes our way next. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
