Monday Arrival

Our dossier actually made it to Eastern Europe on Monday, March 15th! How is that for fast transit? GO DHL!!!

So...there is a slight possibility that it could be translated THIS week and submitted THIS week! Maybe the luck of the Irish will be with us and we might hear good news tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

We are really busy this week getting the Saving Sofia Crab Feed & Silent Auction ready for Friday night. I have the most wonderful friends and family EVER! We are close to selling out...we have about 150 people attending and some AMAZING auction items!

Here is a brief list of some of the highlights:

Golf for 2 at Poppy Hills at Pebble Beach

Monterey Weekend Getaway

$1300 Limited Edition "Magick" Gold, Diamond & Enamel Heart Pendant & Chain

BBQ Grill

A Full Day Room Makeover by an Interior Designer

4 Amazing Photography Sessions

Red "Harvey" Seatbelt Handbag

Mommy Makeover Basket with Teeth Whitening Service

and MANY, MANY more wonderful gift baskets, original art, jewelry, hand made items, and gift certificates!

We are overwhelmed with gratitude and can't wait for the big night! Lots to get organized between now and then. Hoping to be able to share some good news on Friday night about the progress for Sofia's adoption!
