The garage sale was a HUGE success! We were able to raise enough money to cover our home study fees and our I-600a fees. Amazing! We had tons of support from friends and family, and strangers as well. Two people showed up, one Saturday and one Sunday, and said they’d seen the Craigslist ad and wanted to donate goods to the sale! Lots of people donated money and many told us to keep the change.
On top of being a great success, we had a lot of fun. We had a lemonade stand run by the hostess’s twin girls on Saturday and by my nieces Sunday. Super cute. My folks bought us all pizza (thanks!) and lots of friends and family stopped by.
In the end we were really tired and really happy. A completely good adventure.
Thanks again to all of you who helped, donated, stopped by, and/or sent us good vibes.

Congratulations on the yard sale!
