Earlier today I updated the blog with a list of all of our expenses to bring our daughter home. Looking at what we have in our adoption fund compared to what we owe, I became very overwhelmed. I was scared. I know we can go into debt for this adoption and we will if we have to, but to be honest it would really be a burden on us to borrow that much money, so we are trying to find ways to pay for adoption expenses as they come up.
After I had a minor panic attack about money, a friend told me she wanted to do a fundraiser for us. She is a Thirty-One consultant and offered to give me part of her commission if we do an online party. She was nice enough to set up the event today, so please take a look.

Also, my mom and I have been making jewelry to raise some of the funds we need to our sweet girl home. Here are a few of the items we have for sale. Necklaces are $20, bracelets are $15, and earrings are $10. Shipping is included. If you'd like something, please post in the comments here to let me know, and post your email address. Comments are moderated. For your privacy, I will not publish the comments, but I will see it and send you a paypal invoice. These pieces are already made and will ship the next day, so it is not too late to order for Valentine's Day. More items can be seen in this facebook photo album. It is public so you should be able to see it. If you are reading this and are not a friend on Facebook and cannot see the album, will you please let me know?
