NOW for the good stuff:
My personal prayer with this auction was that the Burger family would be able to raise the amount needed to pay for the USCIS fees ... $720.00. This is crucial in that this process takes FOREVER typically and it needs to be started like yesterday! ;) I am ELATED to report that the grand total of this auction ... is ... $$745.00!!!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!! WOOT WOOT! Okay ... I'm done now... :)
So ... here are the list of names that have won items. Please be sure to go to the Burger's blog:

Lavendar Pretties with White Dots and sparkly middle
This apron measures as follows:

Don't you love it? If so, you can visit Nancy's store for more shopping possibilities. Her store is on Etsy as Busy Bee Handmade.
This apron is reversible in new coordinating fabrics and adorable either way. Side A is made of pink and chocolate brown posies accented with light green dotted quilter’s cotton at the hem, waist and pocket. The pocket is also accented with pink grosgrain ribbon.
Side B is made of coordinating fabric in pink with jumbo dots in darker pink, green and chocolate brown. It’s accented with the same light green dotted fabric as Side A at the hem and waist with additional waist accent of the pink grosgrain ribbon.
*ok ... this is sideways ... tried to fix it, but ... *sigh* it won't correct itself. sorry!!!
~~~~ also, Amanda sent quite a nice collection of skirts from her inventory, a few I will upload to this auction, but others I will put on FB in a mini auction. Both benefit the Burger family. If you are not friends with us on FB already, you can locate us at PhillipCharrissa Browning. The rest of the skirts should be uploaded there by tomorrow evening.
This is not a polished, literary work, but rather the very heartbeat of soldiers of Christ out in the battlefield of life-right here in the heart of America. It is a true story of a couple who left their well-to-do California home to establish The Open Door Children's Home and received life's richest reward, that of loving and protecting those who are closest to the heart of God-the children. You'll find yourself struggling to hold back the tears.
This contains 192 pages and is published by Lamplighter Publishing.
This story has IMPACTED our family in a mighty way. We read it as a family for family devotions, and the story paired with the pictures included within it's pages affected every one of us. This is a story worthy of your time - and worthy to be passed down to your children.
We had the opportunity to visit the "Happy Hartman Farm" and it was such a blessing. What a joy it will be when all three families, us, the Hartman's and the Burgers can come together with our children and rejoice in what the Lord has accomplished through the gift of adoption and Down syndrome!
