Simply Love Kit. You can fundraise with Simply Love tees for your adoption, mission trips, orphan care project, just email me for introduction packet. I received this email and wanted to share it with you, too.  What a blessing!!

Kari, I just wanted to shoot you an email and tell you a story. I have been reading your blog since the beginning of our adoption journey (March 2009). It has been a blessing to me in more ways than I can count. Anyway… We brought home twin 6 year old boys from Ethiopia in May 2010 and Ethiopia has been heavy on my heart ever since. As you know, even after you leave Africa, it keeps a piece of your heart. When you were doing your missions giveaway I wanted so badly to purchase a t-shirt and enter, but we got into quite a bit of debt during our adoption and we are trying to be very faithful to our budget. Anyway, a shirt was out of the question for me. Today we got out our Christmas decorations and that is a very stressful time of year for me. This year it was more than usual because my new twins were so overstimulated by all of the activity and it was taking every ounce of my energy to keep them contained. I finally snuck away to my bedroom to sit and pray for a bit and my body was literally shaking inside I was having so much anxiety… Then the doorbell rang. I thought to myself…really, God? Right now, I just need some quiet time with YOU! Little did I know He was showing up at my front door!

I answered the door to the mailman who handed me a white envelope…you guessed it, one of your shirts!!! I have NO idea who bought it for me, but someone did, and I couldn’t have been more excited! I just wanted to share with you, that God knew in advance that my shirt would be delivered on this day, at the exact time that I needed reassurance of His never failing faithfulness and love. God has once again, worked through you (and a mystery friend), in my life.

God bless,

    Hey Kari! We've been out of town so I just opened my T-shirt from the missions trip giveaway and its not the right one. I double checked my PayPal receipt to make sure. I ordered 'whole wide world' but got 'man up.' I'd keep it but my hubby isn't a v-neck kind of guy. 🙂 just shoot me an email and let me know what to do. My order was under "Carolina Beagles". Thanks!
