Get a Quilt--Help Katya Home!!!

Christie, a long-time aquaintaince of mine in the blogging/adoption world, has put up a silent auction for an antique quilt to help bring Katya home!!

Please check it out now! Do NOT WAIT, because the auction is ending on MONDAY.

And if you would kindly spread the word, we would appreciate it. While we will borrow money if we have to get Katya home, realistically, we do not want to do that for some very good reasons.

 #1. We do not want to be worrying about paying back debt when dealing with her many, many needs and the expenses involved.

#2. Realistically . . . we have FOUR adult sized people in our family, and will have THREE (count them) kids in booster seats. Guess what we drive?? A mini-van. See any problems there? Yeah, I thought so . . . that means a larger vehicle is on our fast nearing horizon. And needless to say . . . we haven't had a lot of extra money to squirrel away for a larger vehicle, because every extra penny has been going towards the adoption. We are choosing not to worry about this, because we know God has our back, but we want to be realistic.

So . . . yes, we appreciate you sharing the word with any of your antique loving friends about this lovely quilt . . .

Wait a minute...Do mini vans no longer seat 7 people?
4 plus 3 = 7

Thomas, have you ever tried to be third person (as an adult) in the back seat of a mini-van with another adult sized person AND a child in a booster seat on a long trip?

Hope Anne - I was going to send you an e-mail but lost your address. I know you're busy, but could send me a quick note?

Praying for God's provision for Katya's adoption and also for your other needs (car, etc). Trusting with you that He has a plan and will meet your needs.
