We are home with Amos, Daisy, Lee and Violet! Meanwhile we have jumped in again for one last very special girl. If you would like to help with that, you can make a non-tax-deductible donation HERE that we can access immediately. You can also make a tax-deductible donation HERE that we can use once we receive travel dates. Or by donating HERE you can help provide her and other children at her orphanage the care and nutrition they desperately need. See all of our current fundraisers HERE. We are thankful for any support you can offer!

Pottery Barn Gift Card Auction

UPDATE: Current high bid is $110!

We are auctioning off a $150 gift card to Pottery Barn! Yay! I love Pottery Barn!

Here is what we are doing:

Starting bid is $90! Auction runs from now (Ready, set, go!) until Saturday 6/25 at 11 PM EST. I will be keeping track of bids both on the comments on this blogpost AND on Facebook. If you would like to bid just comment here, on the post in the Reece's Rainbow Facebook group, or on the post on my personal Facebook page! I will make sure the correct current high bid is displayed in all three places. Since we are bidding in different places, I will extend the bidding for five minutes for each bid placed at the deadline to give bidders on the blog and on Facebook the chance to defend their bids! 

Why should you bid? For those who don't know our family, we adopted four older boys from Eastern Europe in 2014. We are heading back again!

Amos has already turned 16. His future if not adopted is an adult facility where both stronger and weaker residents are locked into a caged shed. He is a gentle and helpful boy who was good friends with Barton, who we adopted in 2014 after he had already aged out. 

Daisy and Lee were both in the same bedridden room as our son Evan. Daisy was moved into a group home, but was going to lose her chance for a family and be unadoptable due to changes in the legal status of that group home. At 18 she would have been returned to the same life she had lived before. We are adopting her instead. Lee was moved to a different facility for bedridden children where he has been deteriorating. He potentially has a very complicated medical condition that is not being treated at all where he is.

Violet is a very sweet girl who was friends with two of our boys. She has been listed for a very long time, and we are very excited to be adopting her as well! She is going be an amazing sister and daughter!

Thank you so much for all of your support! Feel free to share this blog post with any of your friends who might be interested in bidding!
