Taking flight

June 21, 2015 at 5:31 PM by Susanna

Still on a blogging break, but wanted to pop in here and tell you that Katie’s bound for a little adventure!

For the first time since we brought her home from Bulgaria, she’ll be taking off in an airplane again, this time headed several states away with Daddy, Mama, Peter, and Benjamin for Daddy’s summer board meetings!

I’m hoping, but not promising, to write a wee bit of a family update sometime after we return.

In the meantime, if you have experience in the adoption world, please consider weighing in with your thoughts on the next blog post, To bond or not to bond: that is the open question.


I’m going to fly!


Who else is ready for a Hidden Treasures auction?

NOTE:  The following post was written by the coordinator of the Hidden Treasures online adoption fundraiser auctions.


Amazing Mikah’s auction is coming up soon!

The auction for Mikah’s family [Jordan and Bethany Whiteley] will be July 1st through 7th.

I’m ready to start taking pictures and descriptions of donations any time. If anyone has some off-the-wall, crazy idea like the puppy for Brandon’s auction let me know. It wasn’t the “norm,” but it worked, even though it wasn’t “shippable.” If you have a friend who might donate a night or two in a vacation home, or something else that isn’t “shippable” but worth quite a bit, then email me. I don’t have a litter of puppies this time, so that is out!

Don’t forget the gift cards, homemade items, jewelry, purses, books, clothing, and everything else that makes this auction great…..so pretty much YOU!

Looking so forward to working with you all again as we get Mikah a little closer to home!

Love in Christ,
Amanda Unroe


Note from Susanna–I encourage you to check out Jordan and Bethany Whiteley’s blog!
