I've taken that ride too, it sucks & is confusing as can be, especially for the women folk. Best of luck to you.

There seems to be a lot of this sort of thing going around.

It was the same for us.

We were in the initial stages of adoption when Lisa informed me that she was pregnant. We held our breath for eight long months, and got real lucky. Needless to say, we'd like to pay our good fortune forward.

This signed, limited edition print will also be included in the raffle.

Bump, for a good cause...

Lisa and I will throw in 100 note cards or Christmas cards of the winner's choice... mixed or matched as they'd like. We'll also custom imprint them with the winner's letterhead on the card, and return address on the envelope flap. Thus, making personal stationary for the winner.

I know I'm new around here, but I won't sit by the wayside and let this happen before me without contributing.

I know Jerms very, very well. He spent the first night of my honeymoon in New Zealand with my new bride and me in a two-man tent, that's how much I love the man. Read into that one as much as you want, it's not what you think. Though one time he broke a rod of mine and I told him, "Jerms, you could break my rod, run over my god, and sleep with my wife and I'd know you have had nothing but the best intentions in any of it." Anyway, I digress.

What I really wanted to say was that he is literally one of the best people I have ever met. EVER. We all have great friends and good people in our lives, but to me Jerms is one of those who attains the highest level of respect and regard that I could possibly hold for anyone. He's one of those people who it pains you to live so far away from just because they are so honest and sincere and genuine that you know by spending more time around them they simply make you a better person. And I'm sure he gets a lot of that from BJ, she's as sweet as they come too!

We've talked about his prospects with children before, and it saddens me to think that such good people are struggling so hard to create new life and make more good people. If anyone should be having kids in this world, Jerms and BJ are it. Only good things could come from more Jerms Jr's out there running around, I assure you that much. I'm thrilled to meet them some day anyway.

I want to help too, but I have limited means. I can donate prints for sure, and maybe a few things from my wife. She does hand painted henna t-shirts, wine glasses, votives, etc, more the kind of stuff that appeals to the lady-folkses, as that is likely an under-represented minority around here. And if there's a way to get to the celebration later this year, there's certainly the will here to do so.

The responses have been overwhelming. the support so far is amazing. Thank you all for digging so deep

in other news, i'm the dumbass that set up a filter on my inbox so i could be all organized when you all emailed me. So all of your emails have been going into a folder that doesn't synch up with my phone or laptop and I was out of the country last week and so on. the skinny, i suck at email.

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back with some of you. I believe that I have it all straightened out now and have gotten back to all the emails. if I haven't please send it again or PM me.

We are trying to wrap up the gathering donations part by the end of this month, so if you have items to contribute or would like to help out, please let me know.

2 more things:

someone mentioned naming rights. I think that would make a nice silent auction item with a high reserve. I'm sure Jerm's and the wife would have no problems with that. I'll work on that. I also think that a tattoo of the highest contributor somewhere above the neckline on Jerms wouldn't be too much to ask for either. Right now that I think that's Bob White. Would look good in Olde Englishe font, no?
