A Second Success!

$871. That is what we made at our second yard sale yesterday! That means that we have earned a total of $3200 at our two sales. Whoa. That is a lot of money to have come entirely from selling other people's castaway stuff. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who donated. And a huge thanks to my parents who hosted this sale in their driveway.

We had several people stop by who were interested in our adoption. And we had some great conversations with at least three families who have adopted (or are in process). We even had a visit from a Tennessean photographer. He wasn't photographing US, though, he was just covering yard sales in general. Still, it was cool. :)

The weather absolutely could not have been better for a mid-July day. This was a huge answer to prayer. It was overcast all day and probably at least 15 degrees cooler than the day before. And the rain held off until time to pack up.

At the end of the day, we donated all the leftovers to a family having a benefit yard sale in a couple of weeks to pay for medical expenses. They came and picked everything up. Yea!

We feel overwhelmed with blessings. Thanks again to all who helped to make this happen. We love you!
