Allie I know if Maia had it in her to be a performer...The two of you would be performing....
If you are happy with the $3500 and the people that offered...I'd say go for it. I saw that you were asking $5000 for her and I would say that would be top dollar. Taking less and knowing that Maia is going to be a happy hacker at a loving home is worth how much???
I know none of this is easy for you...LOL...I can almost hear the knots in your stomach from clear over here!!!
Do what your heart is telling you. (((hugs)))
