Today’s featured contributor to our auction fundraiser is Delanie Davis! Delanie makes lovely, light weight crocheted scarves for children and adults! I love that they are not too heavy and warm-they are perfect for spring, summer and fall. I have uploaded several pictures of the scarves that she made just for this event. Delanie actually went out of her way and approached me before I even began to work on this auction, to help with fund raising efforts! As you can see, there are some that would be perfect for mother-daughter sets! Her scarves retail at $10 each. (Delanie is so kind to have offered to make a special set for our hopeful J_____ and I that I want to take with us when we travel, with the colors of the Colombian flag)!
Please support Delanie’s efforts! I admire her tenacity as a working mother!
Delanie does not have an official website for her scarf making, but you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or look her up on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/delanie.davis.7?fref=ts
Adoption update: We received our first RFE’s yesterday. These are any questions or clarification that Colombia is asking based on the information in our dossier, homestudy and/or psychological report. We will be working to answer these to the best of our ability and get them resubmitted ASAP. We were pleasantly surprised to receive the questions so quickly. While we were hoping for no questions at all, at least the ball is rolling! We also got a little update on Miss J and were told that she is a natural leader!
We also have officially linked our blog donate button with the Lifesong matching grant account! Woo hoo! This means, if you pay for an item(s), or donate via that tab, your gift goes straight to the matching grant opportunity!
Reminder: The auction will run for 48 hours on Facebook (July 1-3). A starting bid will be provided, and further bids will simply be made by commenting on the item’s picture-simple! Items will be shipped by me from Sherman IL. Payment will go directly to our Lifesong for Orphans matching grant account. Lifesong does NOT keep a portion of any sales! 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the adoption. We have a PayPal button specifically for the Lifesong account. Checks can also be written to Lifesong for Orphans P.O. Box 40 Gridley, IL 61744, with Erickson #4462 in the memo.
