Pretend Yard Sale
I have been de-clutting like crazy getting ready for the Just Between Friends Sale. The house is actually starting to look much better since I am de-cluttering.
This morning the kids decided to have their own yard sale and they are working very hard putting it together. It's too cute not to share with you. Amaya is wanting to sell her toys to kids that don't have any toys.
I am a wife to a man sent straight from heaven, a mom to 2 precious biological girls, one amazing little boy born with a limb difference adopted internationally and a soon to be son we are adopting from the foster system. I am passionate about God's call to care for orphans and love advocating for kiddos that need homes. We are also foster parents and are totally being blessed by loving on kiddos for a season. I love talking adoption so don't ever be afraid to ask questions.
Statistics There are more than 143 million orphans worldwide There are more than 800,000 children in America’s foster care system each year. More than 33% of Americans have seriously considered adopting, but no more than 2% have actually adopted. The Holocaust murdered about 11 million people, 6 million of them Jews, From 1973-2002 MORE THAN 42 MILLION abortions occurred in AMERICA alone. In 2001, 159 million people in America identified themselves as Christians, many who consider themselves pro-life, yet 1.5 million babies never saw life, and millions remained orphans worldwide-127,000 adoptions took place, the most common of these 127,000 was step parent adoptions, leaving approximately 142,873,000 kids still needing families
