Our family knows Eden. We have seen her smile, heard her voice, and felt her touch. One of us used to sleep right next to her for years, bonded to her like a sister. This is why, as a family, we have been raising funds toward an agency grant for Eden to help alleviate the costs of adoption for a yet-to-be-found family who will eventually bring her home and provide her with the love, stability, support and medical treatments she needs.
Over the summer, we had a yard sale and also sold things at local consignment stores. Friends and family donated items they no longer needed for us to use for this purpose. Thank you to all who gave and made this fundraiser possible and to my cousin Maria for all of her help. Along with a few additional cash donations, we raised $550. The money has been paid into an agency grant fund designated for Eden at Hopscotch Adoptions and will be provided to the family committed to adopting Eden after a successful registration trip.
