Two Exciting Numbers

Oh, friends...I cannot say anything without first shouting from the rooftops:


For those of you who know Camden, just envision him using his normal {crazy loud} voice to illustrate my enthusiasm!

I seriously cannot believe how successful our auction was!  I was very hesitant to start it because there are so many people with their minds on other things (rightfully so!), but it just felt like this was the time.  AND, God just totally showed up {is there ever a doubt?!}! 

Thank you so, so much to those of you who donated, prayed, and/or bid!  There is no way to know how many people were involved in our auction, but one thing I do know is that we are going to be SO close to paying off phase one of this adoption, which means we are SO close to freeing up that money for our referral fee!  Woohoo!!

So, here are the two significant {and exciting} numbers:

First, our new waitlist number:

We moved up two spaces this week!  And, the referrals this week were given to people who have been on the waiting list since November 2010.  Remember, we were placed on the wait list in December!  We are getting so close!!

Second, the amount we made on our auction:

Can you even believe it?!  I am seriously in awe!  Thank you so much for being a part of our adoption and supporting us in this way.  I simply cannot adequately express my gratitude...there are no words.  So, please, take this as deeply as you possibly can.

Thank you.

P.S. If you won an item, you will be receiving instructions from me later today {Saturday}. :)


  1. woo hoo!!
    Those are two awesome numbers!

  2. I am SO super pumped for you!!! As you know, I have strong opinions on funds for adoption and this my friend is an AMAZING, LEGIT and HONEST way to get those funds. WAY TO GO!! God is blessing you as you work your tail off for your child!!!
    Just a thought... is there anything left that wasn't bid on? Could you do one more little auction, kinda like a last chance thing? Just an idea. :)

  3. Hooray! God is good and faithful. Rejoicing over both numbers!

  4. Both of those numbers are amazing! ! Congrats on 17!!!
