Anyone want a cool t-shirt?!!!

Our new adoption t-shirts are here! We have enjoyed sporting these all week-end. The neat thing is, it doesn't only give us a chance to share our story but because of the design on the shirts, it opens the door to tell people how many orphans are in different parts of the world and exactly how God feels about that. It breaks HIS heart.

The shirts are dark gray. The front says "BREAK OUR HEARTS FOR WHAT BREAKS YOURS" in red with the outline of the world in black. The number of orphans is printed on each continent. On the back are the names of many children who are no longer orphaned because a momma and a daddy adopted them. In bold red print is the verse John 14:18, "I will not leave you as orphans, I will come for you".

The shirt comes in three styles:
-soft, slightly fitted sizes S-XL
-heavier cotton, regular fit sizes S-XL
-youth sizes S(6-8), M(10-12),L(14-16)

The price is $20.00 for all styles with $4.95 for shipping. Obviously, if you are in Birmingham, please contact me by e-mail at so I can deliver your shirt to avoid paying shipping.

I have set up "buy now" buttons on the side bar of the blog to purchase them using a credit card and having them delivered to you. If anyone would like to mail me a check, you are welcome to e-mail me your order and address and I will be happy to stick it in the mail to you. The pictures on the sidebar are not very clear so I will add new ones a bit later. I hope you can view the shirt below and see the details well.

We have already had several orders and people are loving the shirt. Thank you all for your support. We are currently on a mission to raise $8,600. in a hurry! We know that is nothing for our Father. We are trusting HIM to do great things.


  1. I love it!! And I love seeing Esther and Caroline's name on the back! Precious! Ordering today...about to email Jody and see what size he wants! Going to blog about it too!! YAY!!!

  2. Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Just precious!

  3. Do you have the shirts? For the soft fit t shirts should I buy a size larger than I normally do? I really want a shirt but want to make sure it fits--that I don't swim in it or it's too tight!


  4. Hey Cara..... I am so glad you like the shirts. They fit pretty true to size. The soft shirt is a bit fitted but it's not like a tiny "t" fit. Everyone seems to be ordering the size they normally wear and I have not had anyone return one yet. However, if you get it and are not pleased with the fit, I will cover the shipping to swap it. I will be looking for your order soon! Thanks for your support

  5. I am heading to AL the first week in October and would love a shirt! Kelsie said she would ask you to hold a fitted medium for me. :)

  6. I just ordered 2 wouldn't give me the option to order them together though! Feel free to ship the 2 together though!
    We are having an orphan Sunday at our church and I can't wait to ear my shirt that day! My little Ukrainian princess' name is on the back of the shirt!

  7. I just found you from Alison's blog. Love your shirts!! As soon as my tight adoption budget allows, I will totally buy one! We are an AGCI ET family almost done with paperwork. Nice to *meet* you!
