Adoption Yard Sale

We are having a Yard Sale August 22!! We are having this yard sale for two BIG reasons!

1. Everyone who comes to the yard sale will receive information about us and our quest to add to our family through adoption. People that we usually would never make contact with...will get to. Yea!
This reason alone is why we are doing this but there is also a # Dos. (Did I spell that right?)

2. To raise some money for our adoption fees. All of the money that is raised for our Yard Sale will go toward our adoption fees. Morgan and I have now had the opportunity three times to adopt through a private agency. Well then what the heck Thompson's...why don't you have 3 babies? Because and this a is a Big Because. The fees to adopt through a private agency range from 30,000 - 60,000. I don't know about you, but we do not have that kind of money! So we are doing everything we can to put our self in a situation to do so.

All items that are not sold will be donated to a local charity. PLEASE help us! We need as many donations as we can get. Large and Small...EVERYTHING WILL HELP!
Items can be delivered to our home or we will be more then willing to pick them up. Please contact us ASAP if you are able to help.
Please post this on your blog if you can or email as many people with our link. Also if anyone in your neighborhoods, wards or families could help. We would be so very appreciative!
Come on guys..this is the year Thompsons are going to grow plus 1!

Hey I found your blog off facebook. I am so happy I found it. Brett and I also have had problems conceiving, so I totally understand all the emotions you go through because I have been there. We adopted our little girl last august, and it has been the neatest most rewarding experience. I know you two will be amazing parents. I hope all goes well with the yard sale. Check out our blog at
Its so nice to find others that we can relate to.

Britney - I got your message & Thurs night works for us. And that gives me more time to keep going through the house to see what we have been needing to get rid of!! John's a little tired of hearing me from the other room say "Hon, do we still need this ____?" ;) But it feels so good to get rid of the stuff we never use and to support such a great cause! :)
