And now I temper my excitement because...... well, we're still paying for the first one. Blech. Adoption is WAY too expensive. Somebody needs to fix this. Luckily! This time we have a lot more notice so we can apply for grants and do more fundraising than before. The babies are due January 31st (although they're twins so it's expected that they'd be born early) and the birth mother lives in New York. However, she's thinking about moving out west. EEE! We'd love to help her in any way we can.
Now, even though we haven't officially been chosen, the possible expense is so great that we can't afford to wait. We're going to begin another adoption fund right away. Here is what we've got going on (you'll notice some repeats from last year):
Haircuts for Donations: Schedule an appointment with me to get a haircut and only pay what you feel like paying, so long as you pay SOMETHING.
Eyelash Extensions: I'm going to lower my regular price of $85 to $65 for a full set. Fills are $55.
Lawn Mowing: For $15, I'll mow your front and back yard. Put me to work.
Homemade Bread: One loaf of delicious homemade bread for $5, or 2 for $8. It's for a good cause, people!
Sometime in the future, we're going to have another yard sale/bake sale, as well as a pancake breakfast. If anyone has other ideas for fundraisers, please let me know. We don't want to just take donations because we'd prefer to work for it, so give us lots and lots of ideas. :)
P.S. I promise to be better about blogging.
