We are having our first official adoption fundraiser soon. We are having a yard sale May 3rd and 4th to help us raise the rest of the money we need to be able to submit our dossier fee. When my friend heard that we were doing a yard sale she asked her friend if she could make a flyer for our yard sale. I emailed this flyer out and posted it on facebook just last week and told our friends that our garage was open and now taking donations. And I am happy to report that as of this weekend our two car garage is almost completely FULL!! A few of our friends have donated items but mainly most everyting has come from families at my sons’s school. I am really just blown away by how generous our school community has been. They are all so supportive and have really come along side of us during our adoption. They are all so servant hearted and are so eager to help out in any way. I am so grateful to be a part of this community of people!
This was our garage last Thursday. Just one side of it was full. And now as of Sunday night both sides are almost full!!
On Saturday another school mom that I had met recently at a adoption moms group called and told me they had some things to donate to our sale. She said that they were going to have their own yard sale but just decided to donate everything to our sale so we could have the money for our adoption. They have such a heart for adoption and wanted to be able to bless our family. I wasn’t sure how much stuff to expect but in the end they donated three truck loads of furniture and misc. household items.
I am sitting here with tears in my eyes and a grateful heart that a family that we barely know has shown us so much love. I hope that we can return the favor and do the same for another adoptive family someday!
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 126:3
If you are local and want to come help us with the sale that would be a huge blessing. We will need friends to help us sort, price, and to help during the actual sale. And of course we would love for you to come shop our sale and help us fundraise. Message me for details if you are local! We would also love your prayers. Please pray that we will have good weather during our sale and that we will be able to raise the amount of money we need to be able to submit our dossier to Ethiopia!
