The Bottom Line

This weekend, we reached a huge milestone in our adoption.  The progress bar showing how close we were to funding our adoption finally reached 100%.  Fully funded. It was a huge victory, one we felt we could take little credit for.  The financial aspect of our adoption has been a collective effort from everyone in […]

Fundraising Friday – Corn Bags!
