To raise awareness,
to spread the love,
and to help with the crazy costs of international adoption....
We are selling t-shirts!

There are approximately 5 million orphans in Ethiopia,
a country smaller than the size of Texas.

We're grateful [and super excited!] that God has called US to
care for one of his orphans...

there will be

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Here is the design.
[Thank you, Tyler for your amazing work]
The design will be printed on a white short-sleeve shirt.

We hope to put in an order by the end of this week.
If interested, PLEASE leave a comment
with your size.
[price $20.]

We hope to get an idea of how many to pre-order.

This design has been a work in progress for a couple of weeks...
just last week we came across Matthew West's new song, titled "One Less",
written about adoption.
