We had WONDERFUL weather yesterday for our garage sale. We had an excellent turn out of people, and overall everyone I talked to about the adoption was very supportive. Many people gave more than they spent, resulting in us raising almost $700 and still have a garage full of stuff to sell. So, we will still be having a garage sale next month through the church!

I got only one negative response yesterday. It was the first time I had received, direct/ to my face criticism of the adoption. The sale was set up by donation only, I marked no prices on anything, and just "haggled" prices. Most people were more than generous. One lady, however, when I was explaining why we were having the sale said to me "why in _ _ _ _ would you adopt a child like that, especially if you don't have all the money already; why burden us?" I looked at her and simply replied "when God tells you to do something, you do it, PERIOD", she was pretty quiet after that!

So, anyone still wanting to make garage sale donations, I am still taking them, as we will do this again. For everyone who donated time, money and items for the one yesterday....THANK YOU!!


  1. WOW! I can't believe she said that! Of course, my own grandmother said something similar, but it takes a lot of guts for a stranger to say it! Anyway, I'm SO glad the garage sale went so well and that you had beautiful weather to sell in! That's awesome!!! We'll be praying the next sale brings in even more!

  2. Glad it went well, thats great!!

    That poor woman, too bad she doesn't get it. :)

  3. YAY, glad you had such a great sale!! Hope the church sale goes just as well or even better for you! And that was a fantastic come-back to that woman.

  4. Yay, Lyndi! I am so excited for your family and the cutie pie! Praying him home.
    In Him,
