Hey everyone we just wanted to get the word out that we are having a last-minute yard sale at our house this weekend to raise money for our adoption of a baby girl from the Philippines! Many of you know, however some may not, that 3 years ago God laid it on our hearts to start the process of adoption. We decided on a country, chose two agencies and got accepted, and then felt the Lord lead us to having another child of our own. Our hearts have not stopped beating for the baby girl He has for us even as we have waited the past several years- we know His timing is perfect and have been trying to rest in that...
With the news of Caleb's tumor enhancement three months ago, we felt it wise to wait a bit longer. Even with thegood news we received last week, we still feel the need to hold off a bit longer as wewait for several other test results to come back here in the next month or so.
With all thatsaid…we decided at the last minute that while waiting we could still have ayard sale (we've been saving for years)! So, we are having a sale this Saturday, May 28th!We wanted you to know for several reasons…we would love your prayers thatpeople would come out and buy; and prayers for strength- we areexhausted from just a crazy month- I told Austin last night, ”I’m feeling astired as a mom with a newborn baby!”
Also, if youhave items you would like to donate, we would love to have them! I know it’s last minute so no worries ifyou don’t have anything…but if you do, swing it by our house tomorrow day or night. We will take it!! And, lastly, we would love forany of you who can to drop by on Saturday to buy some lemonade from Caleb!!!!He is so excited to help raise money for the adoption! And, if you have anyyard-sale tips, would like to help out, or might like to entertain Annelise,we’d love to have you!!!!

Thanks for your support!
On Mother's Day Annelise and Daddy painted a hand-print canvas to hang next to Caleb's in the kitchen. She had fun, and I will treasure it!
I think this picture is hilarious! Caleb received his medal for soccer last week- the team put their hands together and said, "Go Quick Silver" - their team name- Caleb no doubt will be in the pep club one day!! Ha!!
