Good Things Come Adoption T-Shirts


I knew I wanted to do a t-shirt fundraiser, but really just couldn't figure out what I wanted them to say.  I knew I wanted them to be perfect.

So I thought.  And prayed.  And thought.  And prayed.  And thought.  And prayed.

And about three months later, I was thinking about waiting and how it was all going to be WORTH it once Jack Cruz is HOME, but how I needed to cherish this time waiting as well.

And it hit me immediately.  And immediately I was in LOVE!

Good things come to those who WAIT!

But, God also assures my heart that He has made EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL in ITS TIME.

And as much as this wait has pained me, I can also see the beauty in the waiting.

I see how Justin and I have been refined through the fire of 'wait.'

I see how he's drawn us closer to Him as we have had to FULLY RELY on Him.

I see how our faith has grown, having to trust completely that 'what God has promised, He is also able to perform.'
{Romans 4:21}

I see all the AMAZING friends we have made along this journey who have become people I couldn't even imagine living without.  People who not only love me and my family, but a child half-way around the world that none of us have laid eyes on.

I cannot tell you how excited I am about these shirts!  They mean so much to me and I hope they are inspiration to those not only going through the adoption process, but anything in life that they are having to sit still and wait on God to move BIG!

A few nitty gritty details:

They are Tultex brand meaning they are the softest shirts you ever put on your body
and you will want to eat, sleep, workout, and go to your best friend's wedding in this tee!

They are black with a very light russel gray distressed print made to look
like a chalkboard design.

They are offered in sizes child xs- adult xxL.

FREE SHIPPING to all continental US.

I will be taking orders through Nov 27 and all shirts will ship in time to gift for Christmas!!

All sales will go to help bring Jack Cruz HOME!!!

**When ordering, please be sure to also type in what sizes you'd like in the "notes to seller" section of PayPal. **
So, without further adieu....



{thankful for}
a patient friend who helped me articulate to the last detail the design that was in my head!
a patient printer who helped me choose the perfect shirt, design size, and distress effect
YOU- for helping us bring our baby HOME!
God sending me the perfect design to encourage and bless my heart-and hopefully those around us too!

Hi! I just purchased a shirt, but like a few others said, I did not see a place to indicate size. I would like an Adult Medium!

Thank you and blessings to your family!! Ashley T.

Do you know if they run pretty true to size? I plan to order one for me and one for my daughter!

Brooke, my husband purchased this shirt for me for Christmas and I just love it! What a creative way to help fund raise. I didn't see the post my friend Kim shared regarding the shirts so it was quite a surprise. We almost adopted from Korea but God had other plans for us. We will be praying for you on this amazing journey!
Many Blessings,
