Fast Forward 2 Years...

I can't believe I haven't posted in 2 whole years!! (Thanks to Facebook!) I have a lot of catching up to do. The short story is....

Since my last post we have moved to South Carolina and then back to Texas. We are all finished with our dossier to adopt two siblings from Ethiopia. BUT we need to save some money and raise some funds before we can mail our paperwork in and begin our wait.

Sooooo...we are cutting back and budgeting and saving and praying for miracles of provision and selling t-shirts!!!

I am thrilled to unveil these fabulous shirts designed by my talented friend Kristi Dominguez.
Isn't it fabulous?? Perfect for Fall. The turquoise writing behind "hope" is tesfa, the Amharic word for hope. It's the handwriting of one our favorite adoptive family's sons. Very special!

We have HOPE. Hope in Jesus. If we don't have hope, we don't have anything. This shirt is a reminder of where our hope comes from. Two little ones in Ethiopia can have hope that they will once again have a family.

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;  they are new every morning;  great is your faithfulness.   “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:21-24
Here, my friends, is how you can help: Share this post on your Facebook pages!! Tell your friends!! Buy a shirt or 10!! I think they are seriously fabulous!!

Adult shirts are unisex, black and long sleeved. They are tailored but not too tight, not too boxy. 

Kids shirts (2T through Youth) are black and short sleeved.

Adult shirts are $30 and Kids shirts are $20. Adult XXL are $32.
Shipping is $2, but if you buy a lot, the shipping is on us! ;)

The PayPal buttons are to the right. Please let me know what size you want in the notes section! 

Thank you for being part of our story...HOPE!!!

Good to see you back! I've severely neglected my blog too. I'm so excited for your family. We'll be praying for your two newest additions and your whole family throughout this process.
