God has blessed us with more than we could ever need. He has not blessed us so we can have the latest iPad, game console or a new car. We have been blessed to be a blessing.

Keep up with our adoption journey and get a peek into the Hollingsworth household.

Yard Sale

I wish I had photos of our yard sale yesterday. I thought about taking my camera along but knew it'd would be too much trouble. Not only would it have been too much trouble, there was no way I would have had time to photograph anything. Well, maybe at 1:30 when the customers started fading.

We raised $1,552! We still have one big ticket item left, an electric wheel chair. It was donated by a stranger (not a stranger anymore). They paid $2700 for it back in 2001. The donor's mom moved into an assisted living facility and never used the chair. We are asking $1,000 for it.

Most of the people who heard our story were blessed. But there's always one person who doesn't understand why we don't adopt from here. That story to come later.
