First big fundraiser is a yard sale - Friday and Sat May 22 and 23

We are cleaning out our house and our garage - doing our best to come up with items to sell next weekend. Multiple emails to friends and acquaintances asking if they have anything to donate towards the sale may by clogging up their inboxes! (Many thanks to those who have already donated!) We are still in need of many items to sell in order to meet the goal that we have set for ourselves on the 22nd and 23rd.

All of the money collected at the sale next weekend will go towards the costs of adopting a little girl out of an orphanage (or foster home) in China. Our new daughter will be what is called a "waiting child". A waiting child is a child who has been identified as having a special need. She could of been born with a cleft lip and palate, a heart condition, limb differences, a club foot... she could have been put on the list because she is older and considered harder to place... whatever her need is, God is already preparing a place for her here in our hearts and in our home.

Thank you for being a part of bringing a little girl without a family into one where she will be welcomed with open, waiting arms.
