Ways to Donate

I have had several people contact me asking how to contribute to our adoption fund.  Apparently if you check our blog on your smart phone the sidebar of the site does not show up, so I'm putting the info here as well.

The first way is to go to and send a donation to
When you send a donation through paypal there are zero fees taken out!  We will get 100% of your donation if you send it and mark it as a donation through paypal.

Another way is GoFundMe:

Go Fund Me takes 7.5% of your donation for themselves.  

Either way you choose to donate is fine with us, we appreciate all of the help we have gotten so far!  God is so very good and continues to use you all to bless us!

Garage Sale MADNESS!

Never in my life have I ever seen so much STUFF in one place.

So much we took over the neighbor's garage AND driveway, AND had to borrow that trailer in the background to store all of the STUFF.

We had people calling/emailing/texting left and right, wanting to bring goodies to us for the fundraiser.

I would look out my window and see random people unloading donations in my driveway.

Be still my heart.

The outpouring of love and support overwhelmed our entire little family.  

We had support and help from people in all walks of life.  

Donations, donations, donations.

We decided to have our garage sale on two days (Friday and Saturday) since there was SO much stuff.

Only problem:  60% change of THUNDERSTORMS predicted for BOTH days.

We decided to go out on faith and hold the garage sale rain or shine.

It rained and stormed ALL AROUND US.  Just about all of our customers said they drove through rough weather to get to us.

We didn't get a drop of that rain.

We had a pretty consistent gentle breeze that gently kept the storms away from our street.

OH the outpouring of love and support we received!  

The wonderful friends who volunteered their time (and their kids' time) to help out with all of the back-breaking work just overwhelmed us. (You know who you all are!)

Garage Sale total:  $2,895

My cup overflows.
