The Best Yard Sale This Side of the Mississippi!

On Saturday, our friends and family had a huge yard sale/bake sale/cook-out to raise money for our adoption. We couldn't believe how many people donated things to sell and came out to support us. At the end of the day, the grand total was over $1500!!!
We had a great time! A big thank you to everyone who made it possible! We are so blessed to call you friends!!

They also had these awesome shirts made for us!

When they went to pick them up, both the artist who designed them and the owner of the print shop refused to take any money and said that it was their contribution to our adoption. Thank you K & K Stitch and Screen! We loved the shirts and we are so thankful for your generosity!


  1. What a fantastic fundraiser!! It looks like your friends and family sure put a lot of thought in to their event for you. LOVE the shirts- how awesome that they donated it all to you! (For my shirt for you- I did receive your check, and as soon as I buy more thread, and stitch Africa on, I'll have it in the mail to you.) We are doing a garage sale/bake sale/lemonade stand on Sept 19- looking forward to a great fundraiser!!
