the shirts are coming!!

hello blog readers...and friends of blog readers. people who love adoption...people who would love to support bringing a child into a family that will love it forever. hello one and all.
we, the dockery family, would love for you to help us along on this miraculous adoption journey. and we just made it easy to do so...financially speaking.
it is no secret that adoption is pricey. almost every adopting family that I know of has done, or is doing multiple types of fundraisers to help out with the cost. we are not worried at all about God providing for us throughout this beautiful process. but, it never hurts to ask for a little help from the world. and that is just what we are doing.
pete thought up this sweet (as in cool and like a baby) t-shirt to express the way we feel about adoption. the shirt simply has the continent of africa with the words: red, yellow, black, white, and love across it. the verse ephesians 1:4-5 is printed down at the bottom.
the message says it like this...
"long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ."
he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. he had US in mind before he made the earth! I am ever thankful to be a part of his family. that the perfect blood of Jesus provided the way.

the shirts will be at our house this friday. ready to be mailed out to you kind people. I will post a better picture of the actual shirt when we get them. the shirt is a brown/heathered color and has an athletic fit. the material is that nice, soft t-shirt kind that all the kids are liking these days...not the hard/sturdy old school cotton kind. the design will be that faded/worn look just like the picture above. we'll ship them as soon as we can!

tell your friends...tell your neighbors! thanks!

Hopefully you'll get my order. I didn't realize I had my google cart account tied to an old credit card and it was declined!!
So tacky I know, but I fixed it.
Can't wait to wear my shirt with pride and love!
