Fundraising Breakfast follow-up!

We finally had our Applebee's Fundraising Breakfast on Saturday!  This was definitely one of the most fruitful fundraisers we've done so far...we ended up raising a total of $1,212.00 at the breakfast!!
We were so thrilled!

Dan, the kids and I are so incredibly thankful.  To those that purchased tickets and came out to support us yesterday, to those that just bought tickets to help donate, to those that sold tickets for us or helped to promote our, we are just so blessed by you all!

Weekends are tough and everyone has busy schedules but there were many families with difficulties of their own that still made the time and effort to come out and support us.  And many families we had never even met that made the trip out to support this adoption.  Even those that not only bought tickets but donated extra to our adoption.  We could not be more thankful!  You all know who you are and we appreciate you all!

Our kids had such a great time waiting on tables and helping throughout the breakfast.  It was nice for them to have something concrete to do to help bring their brother home.  It was also nice to see so many people we hadn't seen in quite awhile as well as meet new people.

Here's a few pictures for was great that we were so packed with a great turnout and tons of running around and serving people but it also meant that we totally forgot to take our camera out until the last 15 min. or so of the breakfast.  So we were sad to not get pictures of all the families that came out...we would have liked to get more shots for an album for Joseph.   We'll just have to remember and tell him all about those that we didn't get pictures of ;)

 Here's a couple pictures at least...

Thank you again to all those that helped, purchased, volunteered, donated and prayed!
Adoption is so expensive and we couldn't do it without your help.  We thank God for all of you that helped make this breakfast a success.
God bless you!
