I emailed our phone number and address to her.
Ten days later out of the blue we rec'd this message.
I apologize for the delay. I have been involved in a friends Custody hearing. I am Fed Exing my check to you,in the amount of $8,000!
I am clueless to where you received my contact information from, but alot of the Forums that I have been on have active participants in Fundraising also! Have you tried publicly asking?
How are magazine subscriptions going?
We never heard anything else from this person. We can only assume that it was a very cruel joke. It hurts to know that there are people out there who will do this to others. I hope that by posting this it will save someone else from getting their hopes up if she emails you.
Peaches95827 is the email name she uses. Please don't let her get your hopes up too.
Not a lot of people at this festival so daddy and Brinley read a book.
Two years ago June 5 was a Sunday. I can recall a few moments of that day like it just happened. I was sitting in church listening to the music and the preacher. Out of nowhere I saw the face of a little girl in China. She was listed with Children's House International as Brynli and I immediately thought, "I could love this child." Marty and I had decided not to persue adoption until October and it was June but I knew in my heart that this was the child meant for us.
I won't rewrite the story of how we decided to adopt Han Wei Ya. It's all here in our blog. It was the first entry I made on our blog.
But I would like to say THANK YOU to Stefani at Children's House for placing this sweet child with us. What would our lives be like without Brinley? I can't imagine not having Wonder Pets, bubble gum and Brinley's laughter in our daily lives. God has blessed us with this child and we are so humbled and thankful that we were chosen to be her parents.
She is funny and silly and loving and compassionate and outgoing and shy and hardheaded and spunky and .................everything that is wonderful. :)
