Show Some Love Adoption Auction

Posted by Angie at 8:59 AM
Welcome to our Show Some Love Adoption Auction!
For those of you who may be new here, let me offer you a loud howdy and a warm southern welcome to our humble little blog!  Around here I'm known as Future Mama and I'm married to (pardon my lack of creativity) Future Papa.  We have followed the Lord into the rootin' tootin' world of international adoption and this blog is the documenting proof of our wild journey.  But I digress-check out our tabs above to learn all about us-today ya'll are here about an auction! 

But because I can't seem to settle myself down to business, let me hear first call for a barn-shakin' YEE-HAW for our darling donating sponsors, without whom this auction would not be possible.  Thanks to these kind folks we've got some unbelievable items for you to bid on this week, the majority of which are made by hand

Ok, so here is how the Show Some Love Adoption Auction works:

1. Take a gander at the items that are up for auction (Saturday, February 12, 2011 at 9:00 am through Friday, February 18, 2011 at 9:00 pm, eastern time).  HINT: If you click on the picture of the item, it should get bigger, so you can see it better!

2. BID!  To bid, leave a comment with your name, e-mail address, and your bid amount IN THE COMMENT BOX.

3.  Keep on checking on your beloved items and outbid those other no-good, stinkin' rascals!  At a minimum, bids should increase by $1.00 increments.  Remember, auction closes Friday, February 18, 2011 at 9:00 pm, eastern time.

4.  If you win, holler with happiness!  Then just sit on down and wait, because I will send you an e-mail officially letting you know you were the highest bidder and requesting payment for your item (through our secure paypal button).  If the item is custom made, I will also be asking you about your preferences for colors, fabrics, sizes, and such at this point.  After I receive the payment, the item will be shipped to your doorstep.

That's all folks!  Easy as pie!  And the best part?  EVERY CENT YOU DONATE goes straight into our adoption fund!  Thanks for helping us have a baby!  No candles or romantic music necessary!

Without wasting another moment, let me reveal the auction items!  Click on each item to see its bid page.  Happy bidding!

I just found your site through Young House Love, it is so great! My cousin is looking to adopt a baby within the US, do you have any tips for getting the word out? We created a Web site: - I know she will be a great mom. Your site will be a great inspiration.
