Dear Readers and friends,
As you may recall, back in December I launched a giveaway to benefit the adoption of Evan, a 4-year old orphan from Eastern Europe. Today, I have some amazing news to bring you about Evan – as well as the giveaway!! I will also be announcing the winners!
First of all, a huge THANK YOU to all of you who donated, shared, blogged, prayed and held Evan in your hearts this past month! Together we raised an amazing $665!! I cannot tell you how proud I am of us as a community and as human beings! You are AMAZING!! I am also very excited to tell you that just a few days before the giveaway ended, the Orta family received a donation of $5,000 from a person they had come to know in the adoption circles and this, together with the money we raised, paid for the final part of the adoption. 🙂
Right this moment, the Orta family is in Armenia (Evan’s country) and in a few weeks, they will be able to return to the United States with him. On the 19th January 2016, he officially became their son and now goes by the name “Edgar”. I am delighted to be able to share the first pictures of them as a family of four!
So now it’s my turn to announce the giveaway winners! As promised, I’ve allocated an entry for each $10 donated.
Breathing Underwater book – Jill Preshong & Victoria Harrison – ladies, please get in touch as I don’t have your contact details.
The other winners are: Bala Ramya R., Shivany, Laurie Z., and Inbar Y.
I will be emailing the winners individually however if you are a winner, can you please email me your postal address at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I may get the items posted out to you 🙂 Thank You!!
