Birth Mother Update and a Big Fundraising Weekend

We don't know all the details yet, but Marissa (birth mother that chose us for domestic adoption) went in to labor on Wednesday. At some point in the process she telephoned our social worker and informed her that she has decided to keep her baby. Marissa has been very honest with us from the beginning. We knew she was struggling with the decision, and I think we weren't surprised. We are so excited for her. We knew that whatever decision she made, it was going to be win-win, and we were going to support it. Either she was going to give him up to a loving family, or she was going to raise him herself. Either way, we knew the baby would be loved, cared, and provided for. If we get more details on Marissa and Garrett, and anyone is interested, I would be happy to update you, just leave a comment below, or email me :)

This weekend is going to be huge for our fundraising. This Sunday is our big fundraising event with all the different vendors coming (Scentsy, Tastefully Simple, Adorable Aprons, Gold Canyon, Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, Premier Jewelry). Everyone has been so generous, donating their time in preparation for the event, donating their time the day of, donating their commission, and a host of other ways. We appreciate all of you, and everything you are doing. You mean the world to us. I hope one day we are in a position to help others the way you all have so generously helped us!

If there is any last minute interest in coming or questions regarding the event, please comment below, or send me an email. We can also arrange online orders if there are any items of interest to you from the vendors listed above. Just let me know. Love you all :)
