I was inspired to come up with my own adoption fundraiser plan. You can see the link to my fundraiser above my photo to the left. Also, here: Jennefer’s Adoption Fundraiser Idea
. If you have a fundraiser I don't know about please give the link in the comment section. Thanks for helping out if you can; however, I know we are all poor, so don't feel obligated. Especially because we are going to be planting a money tree in our backyard soon. My parents used to say that to me when I would ask them for money, "Do you think we have a money tree in our backyard?" It is one of those really stupid parent comeback lines that you might find yourself saying one day. Seriously though I know the Adoption machine sticks the expenses to all of us- so thanks for checking it out, but don't feel obligated.
Since I made this site on yahoo’s geocities I recommend you have a pop-up blocker, so you don’t get any of yahoo’s pop-up ads when you go to the site. Thanks again for checking it out!
If you like to shop on line I have to also recommend, in addition to my fundraiser site of course: Lands End
. I know you are all thinking that this is not a great discovery- LandsEnd.com- Who cares? We have all heard of that before. However, this is the cool thing. If you go to their site and click on Overstocks at the top right it takes you to these really great deals. You can specialize your search by clicking on the gender and size of clothes you are looking for. It is the perfect place for getting inexpensive children’s clothes. However, the greatest thing about ordering from this site is that anything that doesn’t work out can be returned to your nearest Sears store. So there is no repackaging and paying for any return postage. That is a sweet deal.
I love shopping online. It is so convenient and when the packages arrive, it feels like Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas- that is my goal- that our little adopted daughter will be home to celebrate Christmas with us. I don't think this is an unreasonable hope. I don't want to set any other deadlines, like for a referral or travel. I just want her home by Christmas. That is my hope.
