Hey there! I never know how to start a new post because it is so hard to put in to words just how thankful and BLESSED we are! As most of you know, Justin and I hosted an amazing community wide yard sale this past Saturday, March 13th! Thank you to the members of New Life Baptist Church, we were able to host it in their parking lot, which was the perfect location!
The love and support that has been poured out by our family, friends, and strangers has been incredible! We would NOT have had a successful sale if it weren’t for them. Our friends were at the sale from 5am-6pm with helpful hearts and hands! Justin and I talk all the time about how uncommon it is to have so many wonderful best friends.. we are so undeserving and forever grateful for each and every one! It brings tears to my eyes every time I think about our tribe! It sure is strong and mighty! Baby O has no clue just how loved they already are!
We also want to give a public thank you to Big B’s FL for donating advertisement with their gorgeous yard card for all of Nassau county to see! Such selfless hearts they have! Also, we had the Freedom Ice truck come out and serve their delicious iced coffees and snow cones.. man that was good! Thank you for your service and generosity! To Shelby Lloyd, thank you for your kindness and the profit you made by selling adorable adoption t-shirts. If you don’t know who she is check out her Facebook page.. she has an adorable clothing boutique!
To say that the sale was successful is an understatement! We were able to raise $10k from all the donations people willingly GAVE us to turn and around and sell at the sale! MAN, GOD IS SO SO GOOD! He certainly showed up in a BIG way! With the total from the sale and many other donations we are only $4k away from raising all of our money! Praise God, all glory and honor go to Him!
We have another fundraiser going on right now and it’s so neat and holds so much sentimental value! Keith and Brittany Brock created an adoption puzzle. Each piece is worth $20 and once all the pieces are sold it will make one big puzzle we hope to hang in Baby O’s nursery! For more information on this, visit Keith Brock or my Facebook page and feel free to reach out and ask questions!
As far as our timeline, we should have everything completed and on the official “waitlist” by April 1st which is my sweet Daddy’s birthday. We are finishing up some paperwork and our profile book and that’s it! Everything else is done!
If you wouldn’t mind praying that the remaining things that need to be completed will be seamless and that our wait for baby O isn’t long! This Daddy and Mama to be are so ready!
If you were not able to make the fundraiser but would still like to help, please visit this link.

Much love and thankfulness,
