Below is an e-mail I sent out tonight to all our adoption contacts:
Hello to everyone tonight!!!
I have exciting news to report... We found out yesterday that we are first in line with our agency to be resubmitted to the consulate when they decide to start accepting dossiers again (when the reviews are completed!) We are so excited....
I also have other great news... the cookbooks are here.... all 10 boxes... over 500 pounds and 567 cookbooks... yes, you read that right!!! Wow!!! You should see the boxes of cookbooks in our hallway... LOTS of cookbooks...
So, if you want to increase your order that would be great... quite honestly we have a lot of people who receive these updates.. so if everyone would buy or help us sell less than 4 or 5, they'd all be gone in a matter of minutes... That would be SO awesome! When we (that is FAITH speaking) sell all 567 of these we will make over $3500.00 profit!!! They turned out very nice and we are VERY happy with them... (see picture of front cover on right of blog!)
So, if you preordered cookbooks.. thank you... but, remember you are welcome to up your order as much as you'd like.. there are plenty of extras.. We had orders for about 125 books.. and if you haven't ordered yet.... please do so if you'd like!
If you don't live close enough for me to deliver or you to get it from me personally, I will have to ship your cookbooks to you. I have tried to figure out a good way to charge for shipping, but haven't really came up with a good plan due to the various locations/states they are going out to... so here's what I figured out.... (PLEASE know that we don't want to make a profit on shipping.. but, only charge you what the shipping costs... I have no idea how to remain sane and do this except charge a flat rate... that means some of you will pay more than it actually costs... I am sorry!) This best shipping rate we (the post office lady and I) can come up with is as follows:
1 book : $3.00
then add an additional $2.00 per book..
2 = $5.00
3 = $7.00
4 = $9.00
5 = $11.00
If you are going to buy more than 5.. e-mail me case we can probably switch to a flat rate box and save you money!
Ok... the other question is how to pay...
You can either 1) mail a check or money order to us...
or 2) pay via the paypal account on the right of the blog.
Paying with the paypal account is fine with me... and I figured the shipping will cover the extra fee they charge.
If you have ANY questions, please call, e-mail or ask....
If you live close I'll be getting your cookbooks to you ASAP! Thank you so much to everyone who submitted recipes and to all of you who are helping us make this another great success!!!
Remember, Christmas is just around the corner.... what a great gift idea... while helping a baby find their forever family!
Blessings and love always~
