Garage Sale SUCCESS!

Despite the fact that we held our garage sale on quite possibly the hottest day of the summer in thePhoenix area so far this year, and despite the fact that we only got two hours of sleep the night before, we had a FABULOUS day! Thanks to the numerous donations given by many friends and family members, as well as the offer of a great sale location (my parents house), we raised twice as much money this morning as we thought we would!! It has been truly incredible to see the many ways God has provided for us financially in the past month. We still have a little ways to go, but have no doubt the money will all be there when it needs to be. Sometime soon, I plan to write a longer post about the financial side of our journey and hopefully encourage others to step out in faith and do what God has called you to do (whatever it may be), fully trusting he will give you what you need to complete it (finances, time, strength, patience, etc). Needless to say, this sale was just one more testimony of God's faithfulness to us. We are blessed to be surrounded by people who love us and want to support us in this journey to bring our daughter home. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

Here are a few pics from our exciting day...


  1. someday, your daughter will look back at the temperature recorded for this ridiculously hot day, and know just how much you really love her.
