Thanks everyone for a fun and successful night last night! We celebrated Chinese New Year at our house and used the opportunity to raise a little support for SFCV.
The people who came each have supported our adoption journey over these many years, something we appreciate so very much. We are fortunate to have a warm and encouraging group of friends.And last night they came through for us again.
They proved that while adoption is not for everyone....EVERYONE can make a difference in an orphaned child's life.
Thanks again to our wonderful, big-hearted and generous friends!

|We really had fun decorating for the New Year.|
|Each guest used a "red thread" to tie a red lucky money envelope to our Giving Tree. Each one contained a donation to SFCV.|

|The cake WAS pretty cake boss cool, but of course this being the not so Chinese mid west they didn't quite get the spelling:)|
