We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Question 5: Why do you have two different donation links on your blog? What is the difference?

If you look to the right hand side of this blog, you will see that there are two different places you can donate.  The reason for that is the following:

The first donation button (the one that says Reeces Rainbow and has the girl's pictures) takes you to the Reeces Rainbow website.  You can donate money to our girls through Reeces Rainbow (a nonprofit) and that will allow you to get the tax write-off.  Reeces Rainbow will in turn give us the money when we travel.  If for any reason, we were not able to complete the adoption, the money would stay in the girl's account.  The great thing is that you get a tax write off which rocks!  The bad thing is, I am not given any information about who donated what so I cannot thank you.  It basically become an anonymous donation for us.  So if you have given using this method, THANK YOU!  Unfortunately, I won't be able to send you a personal thank you because we don't know who the donations come from.

The second donation button (the one further down that is yellow) goes directly to our paypal account.  You do not get a tax write off as we are not a non-profit ;).  The nice thing is that this money we get immediately to help pay for the adoption fees that are due prior to our first trip.  We also know who sent the money and can thank you. 

Either way, we are soooooooooooooooooo thankful for all those who have shown their love and support.  You can see our thermometer going up almost every day!  I get so excited when I get to inch that mercury up!!
