Wow that's amazing. I found your blog after contest ended. May I ask how you got the word out? Was it just via the blog and your family and friends, who bought entries? Trying to come up with fundraiser ideas myself.

Thank you :) Our friend held the giveaway for us for the first ten days which was a huge help because she has lots of blogger friends. We made flyers and took them to neighbors and my husband took them to his coworkers (didnt help too much). We kept posting it on our facebook pages and some of our friends shared it as well. We had people all over the US buy entries and a couple of family members and personal friends. Most of them were bloggers and FB friends though. I would suggest to just keep spreading the word however you can. Hope that was of some help and that you will have very successful fundraisers :)
Congratulations on your journey of adoption. It is such a special blessing :)

Oh my goodness, Tami! Yes, that is our baby girl. Thank you so much for finding her picture. I just looked on the database a few weeks ago and it was still her other picture. She has gotten so big and is so beautiful :)We thought the other picture was updated but I guess we were wrong...haha :)
