Adoption Dinner and Auction

Our "Hearts for Adoption" dinner and silent auction was a SMASHING success!!! God poured out his blessings on us. We had a terrific turnout! It was great to see everyone there and have our little Ethiopia support group there too!!! :)
We were blown away at the support we were shown by everyone. The tally at the end was over $4,000! We were all saying that if we came out of this with even $500 per couple that we would just be amazed, so to have raised over $1400 per couple just goes to show you what happens when God is in control!!!!!! YAY God!
Here's a pic of everyone...

Lydia, Laynie and my sweet nephew Brooks!
Eli could not be cuter! He was playing the drum and when he saw me with my camera he really got into it!!
Some of our Life Group family! They are priceless to us!
Sweet Laynie always so willing to help! She is such a blessing to me! I couldn't ask for a better step-daughter!

We are so thankful to everyone who came to support us three couples! What a wonderful testament to God's love!

  1. Hi there,
    Way to go on the dinner and silent auction! We are looking at doing this in September at our church also. Just wondering what kind of things you sold at the silent auction? I am looking for more ideas. Did you have everyone RSVP too? Thank you@
