Helping a friend.

IMG_9199

My sweet friend Christie has been waiting for 3½ years to adopt a baby from China. Finally she and her husband are within a month of receiving their referral, and they are holding a garage sale to raise some of the funds needed to bring their daughter home.

This weekend Dots, Vivian, Tucker and I loaded up my car with the fruits of some recent closet cleanings and drove to Christie's home to donate them to her garage sale. We enjoyed seeing Christie and her husband, Anton, and meeting their precious son, Quint, whom they adopted from Ethiopia last year.

Best wishes with your sale, Christie! We look forward to hearing happy news from you soon.

You are such a nice friend. And I love your Cavalier puppy. I have one, too. Though he's not a puppy any longer. ;-)
