And the Lucky Number Will Win....(updated posts listed below)




This beautiful LadyBug Afghan that was hand-crafted by my mother, Elissa. (afghan measures 47" x 45")



This LadyBug Afghan is being raffled off right here from July 24th to August 25th!

We need your help....


As you all know, the referral we received back on June 27th came as a total surprise (we have so many close friends who were in the same "waiting boat" as us and still have not heard anything)! We were and still are so very unprepared for the whole thing! So Very Unprepared that I haven't been saving like I should have been (I have been putting some away here and there, but it doesn't even come close to what we'll need for our travel.) My mom, having the amazing heart that she does, hand crafted this beautiful LadyBug afghan...and given it to us...to help raise some funds to bring our daughter, Annabelle Faith, home!






Details on how you can help...

All you need to do is purchase a raffle ticket for...


the LadyBug Afghan: one ticket $2 or six tickets for $10.


You can send the money directly to my Paypal account email address shelly22005@yahoo.com and once I receive your funds, I will than issue you a number(s) via email that will place you in the drawing. I will be posting the live drawing here on August 25th. And please, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me. This is our first time trying something like this....and we are so looking forward to all of your support. (if you loose track of your number, don't worry, we will be keeping a log of everyone that has purchased tickets and what numbers were issued to them).




***My mom also wanted me to mention that she will take custom orders on the LadyBug afghans for a fee of $90.00 (this price includes shipping fees for within the continental US) to help us out. You pick out any color combination of your choosing. If you have any questions, or if you would like to see other afghans that my mom can make, please email me at shelly22005@yahoo.com. ***


I can't begin to express how thankful we are for your all your support and taking a chance and lending a helping hand out to me and my family. This can only become possible with your help! If you can please pass this post along to one other Internet buddy, we would so much appreciated it. Again, thank you so very much and Good Luck!!!

That is adorable! Our lucky number while we were waiting for Anna Grace was 7. I found a 7 spotted ladybug and when we got our referral she was 7 months old which I had predicted the week before we got it!

HELLO ... I just found you and can I just say congratulations ... We just brought home the most precious angel in Nov. from the special needs list from our agency ... I will say it was odd not traveling w/ a group like we did w/ our first trip, but you do get to feel more involved w/ the people ... I pray you travel soon to get your precious girl ... Blessings to your family ...
