Adoption, Ramblings

Yard Sale Madness and the Joy of Community

We are in full swing preparing for our mega yard sale with the Phipps (who are also adopting a precious princess from China) the sale has been coined  “The Ottiphipps Sale.” While it has been crazy and exhausting preparing over the last month, I am loving the picture of community being displayed in our midst. We have been blessed with generous donations and people sorting, loading, and lending us vehicles and trailers. We even had several families that were planning to have their own yard sale donate their items to us!!! We are in awe of His provision through junk…I mean treasures.

We have a saying in our home “Many Hands Make Light Work”. If you would like to be one of our many hands and lighten our load by volunteering to help during the sale click here to sign up online.

It truly takes a village and we are so thankful for all those who have donated, sorted, dropped off, and helped us so far!

We have 5 storage PODs already and hope to fill a few more over the next 2 weeks. Please let us know if you would still like to donate.

At this point it is crunch time, so drop off donations are very much appreciated…but we can pick up larger items or schedule a pick up if you can not drop the items off.

Here are a few highlight pictures:
