Matching Mondays

Thanks to all who supported the Utah Adoption Exchange Benefit!
I don't know the total of what was donated but there were many open wallets to match open hearts.
I meant to take my camera with me but forgot to... so sadly I have no pictures to share. 
The food was very yummy!!!!   There were many pretty and fun items for the silent auction!  Brad and I bid on a couple of items and I got the winning bid for this item (without the frame).

Is a by Robert A. Boyd.
I love it because it is the temple Brad and are were married in and the one we have had all of our children sealed to us.   The other part I love is the fall leaves....perfect since Brad and I were married in October.   I am so excited to add it to our wall at home!  But the best part is I know our money went to something special to help someone who is special.  I wish we could have purchased more.

We had this beautiful young woman's photo right next to our table.

Amanda age 17.
Isn't she darling!!!!  She has a great smile and a glow about her. 
(Heidi...I think you should adopt her :)

Here is a sibling group new to the Utah Waiting Child Gallery.
