Contest results

Well, no sadly, we did not win the contest. It was so much fun to be involved any way. I really appreciate and feel honored that we'd even be nominated and then to be chosen as the top 5 is incredible to me. So~ we don't get a photo shoot from that lady. BUT! Just for being involved, we get the following (and this is taken from an e-mail I received. I did add a comment):
  1. i have added your profile to my blog roll of couples hoping to adopt and a link to your profile will post on my blog today as a post. i hope this increases traffic and awareness of your hope to adopt. (this woman has one of the most well known adoption blogs)
  2. A birth mother who is now married has offered to photograph your family, give you a CD of images AND design a pass along card for you from your favorite image. she said she is waiting for your email and can't wait to work with you.
  3. abbey kyhl photography (www.abbeykyhl.com ) has sent me a coupon to share with you-- a coupon from for 500 free passalong cards when you book a family photo session with her. she also includes great discounts on your session when you get placed with.
  4. hopingtoadopt.org (a new finding site like parent profiles) gave me a coupon for you as well. it's a $100 coupon which is good for 2 months of free listing (no obligation, cancel any time) and a waived activation fee.if you would like either one of these coupons, please send me your address and i will get them in the mail to you ASAP. ;)
  5. also, i have an email group called "hoping to adopt" where i send out information on available adoption situations that i hear of. i would love to include you all on the list if you would like. just let me know.

WAY COOL, right?? I think so anyway. I may be a dork, but I think it's awesome to have all this help to get our name out there. I feel so blessed. I definitely know now that Heavenly Father is up there cheering us on too. Lots of family and friends cheering us on too. Thanks a million. We love you all
