I spoke to our agency today (thanks Barbara) and tied up loose ends. We are just waiting for a court date at this point, which means at any day we could get word that we are going to Estonia to adopt Amanda!! OR it could be weeks or even months away, no way to know for certain. I do know we are short the funds we need for our adoption, but we are getting so close.
So I was brainstorming about raising the rest of the money we need for Amanda's adoption. I saw a raffle on another blog today and I got the idea to raffle off one of the nesting doll sets (Matryoshka) I brought home from Ukraine.
I hope you will consider entering, each entry is a minimum of $5 and you can enter more than once. We will have a third party pick the winner. All entries must be in by May 15th. I cannot accept credit or debit card payments, only direct funds transfer. To send Credit and Debit Card raffle entries use Paypal account email@example.com It will still count as an entry into the raffle, but the total will not be listed on the raffle widget. Credit card payments each cost me a fee of 30 cents and 2.9% of the total, which is why I used my personal account intead, no extra fees!
I look forward to seeing who will win!
On another note; I wanted to thank Melanie for all her help today and for her gift suggestions. She also told me to be prepared for bottle feeding, heavens, I did not even consider that, so I will be certain to have bottles packed. I know that some friends that adopted from Ukraine had to get special nipples while there, I hope I can find similar here. We have the name of the place we will be staying, a travel agency who we hear is excellent at finding the best rates, and even know where to go for food and shopping. Melanie, you are the best!
