Two weeks ago I posted about an adoption fundraiser for Drew and his family. I'm happy to report they not only reached their goal but also surpassed it! What a blessing to get them through the next step of processing everything toward their DTC. I know that the red tape is important ... I just wish some people could get a "free" card or a "pass steps A through E" bonus or something.
In other news I cannot believe I won one of the raffle items! I am so psyched 'cuz I never win anything! And I have to admit I had a big prayer in my heart before I read through the post. (Not necessarily for any particular raffle item but really as one of those "Gideon laying out the wool" tests. I know it's just silly ... but a girl can dream and this one does ... probably way too much.)
But regardless, I was tickled/shocked/giddy to see that my name was drawn for a gift certificate to "Girly Girl Bowtique". They have really neat hair accessories (check it out!) And as my good friend said, "Girl, with all that testosterone in your house YOU NEED SOMETHING GIRLY! It's about time."
I don't think I could have said it much better. HA HA!
So thank you again for the opportunity to help bring Drew home. What a blessing to feel like we all are a part of something so much bigger than right outside our front door. Hopefully if need arises down the road we all can band together again to get big things done through lots of little things. (I have a feeling that most everybody reading my blog also follows the majority of the blogs on my "blogs I follow" sidebar. That in itself is cool.
