We are extremely blessed.

Blessed by a church family who love and support us no matter what.

And it feels AMAZING!

Almost two weeks ago several families from our church conspired together to organize a yard sale with the proceeds going toward our adoption fund.  So many people donated things to sell.  Many others graciously gave of their time and energy Friday and Saturday to setup, sort, arrange and price everything in preparation for the big day.  An event like this couldn’t have been accomplished without the help of so many people we love and appreciate in our church family.

Jessica (one of our close friends) talked with her mom about our adoption and her mom decided to donate a $100 gift certificate to their store, “Red Barn Gift Shoppe” in Murray.  They sold raffle tickets and the proceeds were generously donated toward our fund…

Harold Ann even brought her chair and offered her services as a masseuse for $1 a minute.  Several people took advantage of it and from what I heard it was well worth it…

Our young friend Madison wanted to help us by selling fresh-squeezed lemonade which she would make for you right there on the spot…

So many people pitched in to make this yard sale a success and for ALL of YOU we are extremely grateful!  In the end, we were able to deposit around $2,250 in our adoption fund account at the bank.  That number will be a huge help as we (hopefully) move closer and closer to our referral.  Thank you Reidland Family!!!!!
