    Rachel, I would have donated regardless of the prizes. Though it wasn't nearly as much as I wish I could give, it was a blessing to me just to be a small part.
    I am SO happy for you and Josh that so many people all felt led to give.
    Your prizes were fab, but the real prize for me will come when you post a picture of the THREE of you titled OUR FAMILY!
    Then it will be a celebration of the real winners!
    Love you guys!
    Have a great weekend.
