-We had LOTS of stuff for the swap. Everyone who came walked away with a good bit. It is sometimes hard for me to take money from people, so it really helps me to see them be blessed as well. I have to remind myself that with this adoption, the giving done by others will be rewarded in heaven as well, and not just by the material nature of the fundraisers.
-The food was AMAZING! My sister-in-law, Katie, made the most delicious, Nepali-inspired food for the reception. Curried chicken and potato kabobs, rice balls (rice, cheese and red pepper rolled together and fried), pita chips and veggies with cumin yogurt dip, shortbread cookies, Nepali tea. SOOOO good. She decorated the table with pictures from the orphanage my father-in-law visits each winter as well.
Thanks again to everyone who helped and participated.
