Before I announce the winner, I would like to thank each and every person that entered our giveaway. We're weary and feeling discouraged, we need $2000 in 3 weeks in order to send out our Dossier. Before this fundraiser that number was over $2000, currently we only need $2015 to meet our dossier goal. Three weeks seems like such a short period of time, and to be honest...it is a short amount of time. I've heard and witnessed many stories where families have come down to the last day, still needing giant sums of money, and God has provided every dollar down to the last penny. We're hoping and praying that our story will look like that. We're fundraising with t-shirts, with this Tula, we're getting ready to locally auction off a brand new turkey frier (God provides in unique ways sometimes?), I have another giveaway in the works, we are trying friends. We're giving it our all and some days it feels like not enough.
The thought of not meeting our Dossier goal, the thought of not being able to bring Nikolai home, the thought of him waiting in an orphanage any longer, the thought of another family bringing home my little brother, is gut wrenching. I want nothing more than for him to come home. I'm forever grateful for those of you who have stuck around with us thus far, through the road blocks and set backs. We know it's been long, and hard these past few months, I know it seems like we continually need more money...and it's because we do. Which sounds selfish, but ransoming a child is so costly and taxing The money isn't for our family, it's for Nikolai, it's to ransom his very valuable life.
Now, onto the winner of the gorgeous Tula baby carrier! Drum roll please...
And the winner is...
Are you ready for it?
