391 Thank yous

"An ancient Chinese proverb states, "An invisible red thread connects those destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but never break."

At 12.00pm Central time: this message arrived on Facebook:

Matt & Firas announced the winners of the CoupAide Adoption Giveaway.

1st Place: The Castagno Family - 391 Votes!
2nd Place: The Dismuke Family - 360 Votes!
3rd Place: The Flagler Family - 138 Votes!

Tears rolling down my face and sheer excitement I couldn't believe we won the contest! 391 people joined our Red Thread to Lottie Lee. In the last week of the contest  first and second place were extremely close. We weren't sure we would win, but with the help of family and friends and over 100 strangers we took first place!  We are so grateful for everyones effort and those who left such sweet messages of support and love!  One day when Charlotte is old enough to understand, We will tell her this magical story. About her Red Thread and all the people who joined to help bring her home to us.  We will tell her about the hundreds of  people who loved her even before they met her. We are so blessed!
Thank you for your love and support!
