An Abundance of Gratitude
There are so many people to thank and I really do not know where to begin or how to express my gratitude to each and every one of you.
We received support in so many different ways...emotional, financial, spiritual, physical.
Friends, family, coworkers, strangers, community members, businesses...all of you came together to help us save a little orphaned girl in Ukraine who now has a family to come home to and a community that loves and supports her. We absolutely could not have done this without YOU.
I will never doubt the good in this world again. I have witnessed it and lived it and it has changed me. I want to give back and will always look for ways to return the love and support we have received. This experience has deeply moved me and I'm so grateful.
A few people have recently asked how much we were able to raise and how close we got to our fundraising goal. We totaled it up tonight and we have raised through DSIA and Reece's Rainbow a total of $24,400. Our estimated costs for Sofia's adoption are at $26,000, just $1600 shy of that goal. I would say our fundraising efforts were EXTREMELY successful and again we have all of YOU to thank.
10 more days and we will board a plane to go get Sofia and bring her home to her forever family. Thank you for making this possible. Thank you for saving Sofia!
God bless all of you.
