So this week we have been advertising our silent auction items. This afternoon we had a bowling party for about 30 people that included 2 hrs of bowling and fun with family and friends. Bowling and shoes were covered and we just asked that whoever attended make a donation to our adoption fund. All of the proceeds from the bowling party and the silent auction items will be forwarded to Brittany's Hope Foundation to be put towards our matching grant. We were so incredibly blessed this week. From the two fundraiser's we have already raised approximately 80% of the necessary funds for our matching grant. That is incredible!!!!
We are so incredibly lucky to have the support of friends and family on this journey. Adoption can be a long and sometimes scary road, but having such an amazing group of people supporting us every step of the way is priceless. We have met many people on this journey. Some of them just in passing and some will be a part of our lives forever. Some people have always been there, but relationships have been strengthened or reinvented. We will forever be grateful to everyone who has participated in even the smallest way in helping us bring Konnor home. It is because of all these amazing people that in a few short months we will travel to pick up our Son and there will be one less orphan in the world.
