Welcome to our blog! We've had lots of people asking us to keep them posted on all the adoption happenings, so I decided to make a blog. Enjoy!

If you're friends with me on Facebook, you already know we had some issues with the tshirts that we ordered. We finished paying for them a few months ago and at the beginning of this week learned that we would not be receiving them. So we were sort of up the creek without a paddle, because we really needed them in time for our benefit concert tomorrow.

Being an avid Pinterester (is that a word? probably not...), I knew there were lots of ways I could make my own shirt, so I decided to make 4 for our family to wear at the concert, so we could all match. As I was buying the supplies for this on Tuesday night I saw how inexpensive it was to buy the supplies and the lightbulb went off. I decided I would make shirts to sell myself! So for the past 3 days I've been cutting out stencils and painting nonstop. We've got 60 tshirts ready to sell!
The supplies- tshirts, freezer paper, sponge brushes and fabric paint.

LOTS of time spent tracing and cutting out the Africa pattern... 
I'm starting to see Africa everywhere I look! 

 The first two I painted, for Alexis and Kaitlyn.

 Making progress... I also made an Africa canvas to sell tomorrow night.

 I love that I got to pick out lots of different colors! These are the regular fit shirts.

 And these are the fitted tee's, they were a little more expensive than the others, 
so we didn't buy as many of these. 

We also bought a few toddler and children's tshirts that we'll be selling, and some bibs! 

If you're interested in purchasing one of these shirts, let me know! I have sizes Newborn- Adult XXL (tomorrow night I'll have 12 month- XXL available), in varying colors. They're $15 or 2 for $25, and the bibs are $5. If you need the shirt shipped, just add $1 for shipping. You can email me at saragentry at gmail dot com to place an order. If you want a specific color, I can get it for you! AND if you are adopting from a different area of Africa and would like the heart in a different location, I can do that too!

Things to be praying for-
Please be praying that our fundraiser tomorrow night is a HUGE success! We've put a lot of work into it and would love to see a big turn out. Also keep Elizabeth in your prayers, as well as her caregivers. We're waiting on a document from immigration and Andrew's passport, so pray those things get here quickly so they can be on their way to Congo!
