Fundraiser Reminder and a Super SURPRISE!!

This is a reminder for Daniel's iPAD2 fundraiser AND and a surprise announcement.  So be sure to read all the way through to the end!  :)

For the Reminder - Daniel's fundraiser is STILL GOING!!  I  have been a super bad blogger lately.  It has been hard to find the time to remind people and try to get the info out there.  It has taken some time for ME to recover from Madalyn's surgery, let alone Madalyn getting over it.  LOL 

Anyway, it IS still going!  YEA!!  You still have time to donate!  :)

Daniel is trying to raise money for his plane ticket to China.  A round trip ticket from where we live in Colorado, to China, will run about $1800.  We are not quite there with his ticket, and we are still working hard on that.  We have Daniel's ticket to pay for, plus my ticket, and another helper for me if possible.  Plus we will need to pay for our daughters' one way ticket home.  And according to my research, that will cost approximately another $2000 dollars.  Yes, we still have alot of fundraising to do, but I digress...  Lol    We will focus on this one right now!

Please consider donating to Daniel's fundraiser.  It is tax deductible (goes to Reece's Rainbow)!   :))  Even just $10 will help.  If everyone who reads this blog would donate just $10, it would make a HUGE difference!  Here are the details, in case you have forgotten or you didn't see the original post:

Details of the fundraiser:

iPad 2, 16GB, wi-fi, a retail value of at least $499.00

$10 = 1 entry
$25 = 5 entries
$50 = 10 entries
$100 = 20 entries
$150 = 35 entries
$300 = 80 entries!!

It's so easy! The more you donate, the better your chances of winning! After you make a donation, you can get a free entry for each day that you share about the fundraiser on facebook or if you blog about it. Just be sure to leave a comment (and a link) on this blogpost when you do.
PLEASE spread the word!!

If for some reason we don't bring in enough money to pay for the iPad 2, we will split the money 50/50 with the winner. Praying we bring in more than enough money and we don't have to worry about that!

Oh and if we bring in at least $2500, we will add the iPad smart cover to be given along with the iPad 2!!!

Please please share our fundraiser with everyone you know!  Share about it on facebook or on your blog if you have one!  Every time you do, you will get an extra chance to win a super cool iPAD2 !!


The next part of this post is our super exciting news!!  And, without further adieu....the SURPRISE part of this post.

We have been keeping this to ourselves for a little while.  For one reason or another.  But we have decided to announce it earlier than previously planned and we are sooooo excited!! 

Can you guess??  Can you guess??

I'll give you a hint.  You know we are adopting a super cute and adorable little 5 year old girl, right?!

Well.....we are actually adopting TWO super cute and adorable little girls!!  :))  I cannot keep the grin off my face, I am so excited!  Ha Ha I knew you would be surprised!!!

Introducing little miss Ruby Mei ~

Oh my heart isn't she just so adorable!!  We are so in love with her already and absolutely cannot wait to meet her!   Hailey will have another little sister!   One who will be traveling home from China with her.  Wow!  She is going to be surprised, too, don't you think?!  :))

Ruby is 4 years old.  She is in a different province than Hailey, but not too far from where Hailey is.  We have been able to add her to this adoption without adding too much in the way of travel in China so that is nice.  There is much I would like to share about us actually being able to add another child to this adoption from China, but I cannot at this point.  Suffice it to say that the way things worked out, it was very clear that this little girl is meant to be our daughter as well.  We continually are amazed and blessed at what God has done during this adoption!  Wow!  Thank you God!!  We give you all the glory!

OOOOHHH I want to be your helper!! I am crying at the picture of your precious baby girl waving to you! She is adorable. I am so excited you are getting two... Goodness gracious what a pleasant surprise! Yeah!

Barb said...

Oh my goodness she is so adorable! I love that you are bringing another home but how could you not?! That face is so precious, both girls are. I am so jealous, Hong Kong only lets you adopt one at a time. Love HK but would love to adopt more than one. Very happy for your family!!!!

Just donated $50 to your iPad giveaway. I hope you raise lots of money for these two precious girls.

Melissa said...

Ok, so FINALLY... I was able to do one entry to the FSP account, post about it on FB, AND get it on my blog. I hope that helps! Sorry it took me so long!

Psalm 139:13-16

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
