Carnival Wrap-Up

IMG_6131We had a wonderful night!!!  It was a blessing to see everyone and have you all meet Aaron!  Shiloh Valley Farms created a fun petting zoo that all of the kids thoroughly enjoyed…which confirmed for me and our sons that we would like to have goats! (We should be able to have 1 or 2 goats in Sheridan…just saying! 😉 )   Dinner was so delicious and the cotton candy & popcorn were tasty.  The Silent Auction was full of amazing gifts that so many of you are now able to enjoy!

There were many people working in the days leading up to the carnival, as well as that day, and through the night.  Fundraisers and events of this size do not happen and are not successful without others volunteering!!!  To all of you who have helped, we want to say a…

GIGANTIC

THANK YOU!!!!

Over 100 people came to celebrate Aaron’s adoption and to support our goal of reaching $5000.00.  Remember, we received a matching grant for $5000.00, so that made it easy to have a goal for the night!  After all the money from the evening was counted, we raised over…

$5,400.00!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you so very, very much to everyone who came and helped us reach this goal!!!!!!

This means we have over $10,000.00 in our adoption account and it also means that we have all the funds we need to finish paying for Aaron’s adoption.  It also means there is a little extra, so we have funds to pay for the next step in our Haiti Adoption!!!!

We have to admit that we weren’t sure how much we would raise.  God has called us to adoption and He is faithful.  We do not know how He is going to handle the details or even when but we do know He doesn’t leave us or forsake us! Our hope is in the Lord!!  Thank you for being a part of His work and joining Him in what He is doing!
