This beautiful piece of art titled “Love Nest” was donated to our fundraiser by our friend Marilyn Cole. Our buddies Dave and Becky bought it for their home!
Since our February fundraiser, Team Thunderpuss has been quietly saving money and working a little bit on our house in preparation for our upcoming adoption home study. We have chipped away a little bit on the mountain of paper work that comes with this endeavor and will keep working toward that for the next several months. This moment, Robert is writing on the essay portion of the assignment and I am procrastinating the task of making a list of every place I’ve lived since I was 18.
Since part of the home study is a home visit, we also worked a little on our house. In the fall, we put a lot of work into the interior and back yard, but the front looked pretty sad. Last weekend, our sweet friends Ben and Michaelle came to help us with landscaping, and I’m proud to report that the front yard now looks amazing! Our house no longer looks like a sad foreclosure, and has been turned into a home.
We thank everyone for their continued love and support as we get closer to our bigger family. It sometimes seems like tiny steps, but it is happening!

Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday night to celebrate Bonnie’s birthday and offer such warm support for us as we continue to grow our family. Outside it was a cold, wet February night, but the event space was downright toasty with great music, wonderful art and your positive energy. We greatly appreciate everyone’s contribution to the adoption fund and hope you all had as wonderful a time as we did. Stay tuned to the blog for continuing updates on our progress.
Who is turning 40 and loves to dance? This gal! Please stop by to take a silly photo in the photo booth and dance with me.
My friend Brian will be spinning some funky grooves. We’re also going to have a small art auction to raise funds for our upcoming adoption.
If you are an artist, and you’d like to donate a piece, please email me bonheath at gmail.com. If you’d like to send us a donation, please paypal to this same address. Come on out and cut a rug!
Date: Saturday, February 18, 2012

If you’d like to help us out, here’s what you can do:
* If you’re an artist (or an art aficionado), donate a piece to our art auction. The more the merrier!
* Donate to our adoption fund at the email address listed above.
* Drop by during the art auction to socialize and bid on something wonderful for your living room.
* Stick around or drop by later for some dancing fun! The DJ will be drawing forth wonders from his basement of vinyl grooves for this party and it should be a blast.
We hope it’s a positive, fun-filled night for everyone. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
