An Adoption Benefit

In the last post I let you (formally) know that we (Liza and I) are adopting. I also announced our adoption site, homeforhaven.com.

This is another adoption-related post. Though, I promise that this blog is not going to be all about adoption since that is what Home for Haven is for.

Also, this post is uncomfortable for me to write because... well, I don't know exactly why. Because I'm proud, maybe. Because talking about money is weird and asking for money is even weirder.

Anyway, I'm just going to get right to it.

Some friends have been kind enough to host a benefit on our behalf.

But really, it's not benefitting us. It's all for Haven.

And, if nothing else, knowing the people throwing it, it's going to be fun, and we'd love for you to be there.

You can see the invitation above but here are the deets.

Who: Us, the Kinsleys (well, it’s for us but some friends are throwing/hosting it)

What: A Silent Auction Benefit (including dessert bar and photo booth)

When: March 12, 3:00-5:00pm

Where: Second Row Studio on 2nd Ave N in downtown B’ham

Why: To help us bring Haven home.

How: $10 admission (kids are free) plus a silent auction (there is going to be some good stuff).

I really don’t like the whole fundraising idea. But the reality is that adoption is expensive. We’ve made a lot of sacrifices and saved a lot of money so far. But there’s still a ways to go.

If you wouldn’t mind helping, we’d be eternally grateful.

Thanks.
