Everything Crafty Adoption Auction - NOW LIVE!!!

Okay, so this isn't exactly how I envisioned it... but it will have to work! First of all, thank you for all of your sweet comments, texts and emails with encouragement flowing! I greatly appreciate it - more than you know! These last few days have been very hard for me... but I'm back on the horse and I'm NOT going to let Satan win! :)

Here's is how my "auction" is going to work. We have exactly $3,805 to raise to bring our baby home! Praise God for getting us this far! He is so good! Since we couldn't seem to get our online auction set up and still save money... we're going to host it directly off our blog.

Each item will have a starting bid. It will also have a "Buy Now" price. If you want to go ahead and buy it... simply leave a comment and put "BUY NOW" in your comment. Then.... go to PayPal and pay for your item through the link provided on our site. There is a place where you can leave a comment. Please be sure to leave a comment letting us know who you are and possibly your contact information. This will be the best way to get in touch with you.

Again... we're forever grateful to each of you and pray that we're able to raise the remainder of our funds! We want so desperately to help some of our other friends who are adopting from Ethiopia, to raise their much needed funds! If you don't see something that catches your eye, and you want to help in some way, you can leave a donation through PayPal to help us with our cause. If you're not able to help out financially, please continue to pray for us as we wait, and for Christ to be glorified through our time of waiting! And lastly, please pray for our baby and the mother who is carrying our precious child at this time. I can only imagine what must be going through her head at this time. We appreciate your prayers!

I'm not sure what happened to my post. I have the entire post copied into an email [thankfully]. But, for some reason when I try and put it back into the "post"... it says there is an error. Does anyone know if blogger is having issues? I've been trying since late last night to get it fixed! :(

TigerRag19 said...

Brantley,

I am trying to pay through pay pal and it keeps saying "Fatal Failure." How would you like payment?

~Karen

Brantley and Richard said...

Karen... not sure why it is saying "Fatal Error". We fixed the link, be sure to use the PayPal button at the bottom of the auction. We've received several payments via the blog, so I'm not sure what else to try.

Send money via PayPal using richardandbrantley@yahoo.com as the email. Thanks!
