Making it all happen

So here's the thing.  If you look over at the right side of the page you'll see the estimated costs of making this adoption happen.  It's actually a very conservative estimate, believe it or not.  The thing is...this adoption is going to take a chunk out of our bank account the size of a house down payment!

We have, oh, maybe 3 months to come up with the money...

So we are hoping that all of you guys can help us out a bit.

This is a puzzle of a major landmark from Max's hometown.  I'm not going to tell you what it is yet -- to find out you have to help us put it together!  For every $10 that you donate to our adoption fund (with the Chip-In off to the right or to us directly), we are going to write your name on the backs of 2 puzzle pieces.  (It's a 1000-piece puzzle, and even I don't write small enough to make it fit on one!).  When the puzzle is complete we will frame it in double sided glass so that he can always see all the people who helped to bring him home!

Money is tight everywhere, I get it.  But as we get into the Thanksgiving and Christmas season this year, I hope you'll think of us and a little boy who has spent his whole life in an orphanage.

Let's get him out of there as fast as we can!
