Adoption T-shirts

**This sale is now closed, but a HUGE thanks goes out to everyone who made it such a success! I appreciate your e-love and support so much! XO**


Okay! It’s t-shirt day! ūüėÄ

Like I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve had this (day)dream to create a line of Lettered shirts for a while now, so today marks Day 1 of my trial run and I’m so grateful for the Opportunity to see how this all goes…or doesn’t go- LOL! ūüėÄ

The shirts are made by Next Level and we chose them because they are SO soft! They’re 50% Polyester/25% Cotton/25% Rayon and we didn’t notice that they shrunk much at all after we washed and dried them. They are unisex t-shirts, and both Kevin and I are wearing mediums in our photos. Here’s a sizing graph that may be helpful too:

HPS stands for “High Point of Shoulder”, so that measurement is from the very top of the shoulder down to the bottom of the shirt.

(If you have any other questions about the shirts, please feel free to ask in the comment section below and I’ll get back to you with an answer a.s.a.p!)

The sale will end next Monday morning at 9am CST so that we can email our entire order off to to Mammoth Printshop.

Mammoth Printshop

They’ll be printing them up from March 24-28, and then Kevin and I will start shipping them out after that. (between April 1-5) Purchasers in the US should receive their t-shirt(s) before or during the second week of April. If you have any questions regarding the shipment of our shirt, just drop me a line at LaylaPalmer (at) aol (dot) com.


If you missed my post about how God encouraged me to split the proceeds from these shirts, you can read about that here: Two T-shirts.

The couple I mentioned in that post were so excited & thankful, and I was so touched when I read what Stacy wrote on her blog the next day:

“There have been so many conversations in our house during these last few months as we have worked through the paperwork trail, again. ¬†One of the biggest challenges this go-around was that when we felt God leading us to change from¬†Ethiopia to¬†Haiti, and we knew it was going to be another¬†challenge to our finances.¬† This second dossier was not something that was in¬†our¬†financial plan, but we were confident that it was in¬†His¬†plan.¬† As we were nearing the end of our dossier and coming up on another big payment, God made it¬†very clear¬†to my heart one day, just last week, that¬†He¬†called us to adopt, and that¬†He¬†would provide the finances.¬† I felt it¬†so clearly¬†that I immediately burst into tears.¬† I¬†knew¬†that He would provide.

So, today¬†my little man and I made a trip to the post office and happily¬†mailed off our dossier.¬† With it, went¬†a huge chunk of our savings.¬†¬†But, there was peace¬†in my heart.¬†¬†Then, we ran a¬†few more errands¬†and came home to eat lunch together.¬† As¬†I finished¬†my lunch, I¬†received a text from my friend, Layla (who¬†goes to our church and is¬†also¬†adopting from Haiti!¬† How cool is¬†that?!),¬†and she asked if she could share my blog on her blog. ¬†So, laughing a little in my head at how infrequently I blog, I said “Sure!”. Why not, right?

It wasn’t until about an hour later, when¬†little man was down for a nap, and I had a moment to sit down, that I decided to spend some time catching up on¬†Layla’s blog.¬†Her post ended with me in a puddle of tears. The very puddle I had joked about on Facebook earlier. God, in all His goodness, had laid our family on Kevin and Layla’s hearts, and we were about to be the beneficiary of a blessing we never saw coming. I will never get over it when people tell me that God has laid us on their hearts. While they were praying through their own dilemma, He was assuring me He was taking care of ours. What an absolute joy it is to be a part of the plan¬†He¬†has for our lives. He has already convinced me that He is writing a much better story than I could have ever dreamed up.”

(Neal, Stacy and their kiddos!)

¬†I used to feel like I was dragging my feet on this t-shirt line idea, but now I sort of think it was supposed to launch this way all along! ūüėÄ

So, on behalf of Neal and Stacy and their family, and Kevin and our Sweet P down there at Three Angels Children’s Relief, thank you¬†so much to anyone who purchases a shirt this week! Our families appreciate your kindness more than you’ll ever know!

    However, I ordered a Med. but it is too big–wondering if anyone ordered and small and would like to swap? Let me know.

    Thank you

    Hello :)
    I received the t-shirt and LOVE it. However, I must have measured wrong. I somehow got a MED but need a SMALL. Is there anyone who could swap me?

    If yes, please let me know. I’ll check back here to see
