Adoption Benefit Yard Sale #4(b) - The End!

                      Today I decided that it would be a good idea to host a yard sale by myself.  It was a very humbling day.

                       However! : )  Although our grand total was about $150.00, it was a good day.  I had a lot of conversations with people about adoption, our journey, their experiences etc.  People seemed to want to talk today.  Maybe it was because there was usually only one person there at a time.  But it was exciting to get to share our story, to shed some light on the topic of adoption, and to hear what other people are doing.  I was able to give some much needed items to several people who are helping to care for children that aren't their own and that was wonderful.  And now we have three loads of donations to bring places! 

                       It had to wind down at some point and although we planned on doing one more sale, we are officially done.  This certainly became much more than what we had ever anticipated and we have been so blessed by all of the help we have received through donations, help at our sales etc.!  So thank you, thank you, and thank you again!
