Thank you...

Charissa here...

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who donated to Reece's Rainbow for Burke's adoption fund! We raised $310 and that is a really nice start for him. Please pray with me that Burke's forever family will find him soon!

Just to clarify, the donations were made straight to Reece's Rainbow on behalf of Burke and not towards the Urban adoption fund. There was some confusion as some saw the chip in button and assumed we were short on money and were asking for donations. That was not the case at all. I had started the chip-in fundraiser on my birthday on June 25 to raise money and awareness for one special orphan and I picked Burke because he has similar challenges as Zoya. We are doing OK on funds and have not asked for any donations towards our adoption. But thank you for those who have asked.

Also, I have received 3 boxes in the mail of clothes for Joseph and Zoya, and I just want to say what nice blog readers I have. Joseph will be thrilled with his new Sponge Bob swimming suit, and I absolutely cannot wait to see Zoya's face when she sees her closet is filled with pretty dresses!! Thank you Jan, Lisa, and Kelly! And of course Marlita too!
