So the Question is: Why wouldn't you come? Did you see all the great items above that you can bid on. Plus you will get fed and have great fellowship. If you live locally (near Raleigh, NC) please, please, please come.

This auction will help make possible the adoption of 4 precious children. The three boys are getting older and in danger of "aging out" of the orphanage. What that means is that they will have to leave the orphanage when they turn 16 with no hope, no future, a (substandard) 9th grade education, no job skills, no life skills, a couple of bucks in their pockets, the clothes on their backs and it may also mean they have no place to go. Our 3 families are committed to rescuing these kids before the boys are too old.

These kids have spent a month in our homes. We know them. We love them. They love us and they want to be adopted. Please help us bring our kids home.

If you live out of the area and want to help us there is a ChipIn button for donations on the right column of this blog for our adoption expenses. If you want to help the Dewberry or McCoy families please check their blogs listed near the top of this post for donation information.

The Dewberrys leave to adopt Sergiy on February 6th. They need more funds quick. Please consider a donation if you cannot attend our auction.

On behalf of all three families thank you for taking the time to read this long post and learn about our fundraiser and our precious kids.
