Just wanted to report that I survived the sky dive! It was truly phenomenal, and I would jump at the opportunity to do it again. My final fund-raising tally was $1400 - thank you all again so much for your support and donations! This couldn't have happened without you. I'm working on personal thank-you emails to send as we speak- and there will be a raffle coming up, as promised! My friend told me that the money we raised with this jump is going to go to a water pipe being built which will carry water from the well, so that the orphanage can have running water. It feels so good to have a solid, concrete reward like that!
So as you've probably gathered, Daiku and I have arrived safe and sound in our temporary new home in England and are loving it. Now that we're more adjusted and the jump is behind me, expect a lot more blogging from me.
Thank you to everyone again, I hope you all know how much I appreciate you.
