All of the FABULOUS prizes donated have blessed our socks off, all for the love of a little girl who will be our daughter.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever! I Chronicles 16:34

Before we get to the prizes....Do you love Scentsy?!

My sweet friend Becky over at The Bilby Bunch has graciously offered to have an online scentsy party and ALL of her commission money is going to our adoption. I was completely blown away by her offer, blessed beyond words, and so thankful for her generosity. So if you love scentsy and want to buy some AND help support our adoption check out the link here: - you'll just need to click "order from party" next to our name and it will count towards us. To sweeten the deal if you place an order, comment here and I'll give you 2 entries into this giveaway! THANK YOU BECKY!
