Grand Prize Winners!

First, I want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who donated, blogged, tweeted, and went above and beyond to rally others to help bring our little girl home. I can't tell you how many times I had tears in my eyes as I read your notes of encouragement and saw the impact of my online community's incredible generosity. We raised fully half of what we needed to raise, and that is AWESOME. We've been so blessed by this. I can't wait to show Johanna my archived blog post one day so she can see how many people pulled together to bring her home.
