THE STATS: Ya, baby! We have reached the goal!


Oh ya! I am honored & humbled to be able to announce with the deepest thanks & a giddy heart, that due to the outpouring of gracious generosity & kindness of over 100 individuals, we have reached our goal!


I would not feel right without giving proper thanks to those who have given of their hearts, time & resources to help raise the money needed to begin this journey of a lifetime.

In the most true & literal sense, it is because of the kindness, generosity, and sacrifice of EVERY individual who has contributed that both Mike & I will be able to travel to Korea this summer to meet my birth mother & birth father for the first time.


(Note: The following list is in alphabetical order. Also, there may yet be more names added--even though we have reached the goal, I am overwhelmed to learn that there are those who still wish to give!)

PS. This doesn't mean you're getting away from our donation! ;D

You're so funny, Mia!

Wow! I was hoping to donate some money to your trip, as I just saw your video on Youtube, but looks like your work is done! I wish you the most wonderful, fulfilling and memorable trip of you lifetime. I am currently living in Korea and know that if you need any assistance from the adoptee community while in country, they will be there for you. Best wishes!

Thank you so much, Rachel...I greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness and support...if there is any way by which I can contact you (ie, email) should we need anything before or during our visit to Korea this summer, that would be great! I am very excited, albeit nervous about the trip...particularly the cultural and language differences...

Hey, why aren't I up there?! ;D

Melissa said...

Sorry, Mia!!! You're right I needed to update it...take a look now :)

Well, as long as you got the money (finally!) it didn't really matter :)

Rachel, thank you for your thoughtful support! I'm assuming you live in Seoul...? Only 4 more weeks until we head to Korea!
