Garage Sale Update (2 weeks to go)

Wow! The garage sale collection has been growing daily. We are so blessed to have such amazing people surrounding us and supporting us on this crazy journey. Thanks to everyone so far who has donated to our cause. We've been doing our nightly sorting of all the items and we are just so grateful that we have bags of stuff to sort through each night. The garage sale is quickly approaching and we're excited to be doing a fundraiser like this in our community. It's such a great way to raise awareness of adoption and the orphan and a great way to live in community with one another. We have a lot of work to do still, and still need more donations, so keep 'em coming! I've thoroughly enjoyed just getting rid of all the "junk" at my house. It feels so liberating, stripping down your house to just the things you need. I can't believe I buy some of the things that I buy.

So what are the proceeds of this fundraiser going to?????

1. Our IAP form (Initial Application Package) $2500...This is the first payment to our agency.
2. Home Study $600-$1000

Once we finish these two steps we can start our dossier and then finally be put on the waiting list for our little boy.

Please continue to pray that God shows up big time at this garage sale! Also, that the process continues to move forward into the next step in the process.

Also, if you, or a family member, or a friend have any stuff after your spring cleaning that you would be willing to donate, please email me. We can come and pick it up if you need us too. The garage sale is going to be Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19.

  1. I think this is so awesome what you and your husband are doing for this child! I hope that one day my husband and I will also be able to adopt. If only 6% of born again Christians adopted a child there would be no more orphans in the world. How can we not respond to this? Good for you! I will be praying for God's hand over you all!
