Blown AWAY

Mike and I don't like to ask for help. We were both raised to be VERY independent, so when we faced funding an adoption at the same time as starting a new business, in a new community, it was hard for us to let people know that we had a need. Well, our good friends, The Larsens, opened the door for us, encouraging us to have a garage sale to fundraise for our adoption expenses. I wrote an email to the church, explaining that we were having this garage sale and to put it mildly, we are blown away!!

We have had a steady stream of cars, over the past two weeks, bringing items over for our sale. We have been met with so many smiles, and encouraging words in addition to things. We've also been given really nice clothes for our kids to wear, in addition to the ones donate for the sale. Kael has a completely new wardrobe, the girls have many,many new clothes and we have new clothes for the new kids. I'm amazed, at God's continued provision and how HE has used the wonderful people of Williston to complete this plan.
