T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY!!!!!

WOO HOO!!!!
IT IS........T-SHIRT TIME!!!

First, I will share the story behind our t-shirts and the designs. THEN, I will share how you can WIN a FREE T-shirt! We are having a ONE WEEK ONLY T-shirt giveaway! (Don't worry, if you do not win one, you will be able to pre-order one for purchase of $25 after the contest!)

Jeff and I have been working hard on creating our own t-shirt designs, and we are excited with how they have turned out! We hope that you are too! We cannot introduce these without extending a big THANK YOU to Kari Gibson for all of her information and encouragement, as well as helping us find quality t-shirts! We also want to thank Jeremy and Amber, for their help in picking t-shirts and getting our designs on them!

We want to shine a positive light on adoption and have chosen the following anonymous quote for both designs:

"We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life,
but those who make their journey home
across time and miles,
growing within the hearts of those who love them,
are carried on the wings of destiny and
placed among us by God's very own hands."

AFRICA is the continent of choice, as that is where our son/children are going to be born. We like the idea of having the safari animals making a journey across ~ or over the top of ~ Africa to represent the journey we and our son/children are making, half-way across the world, to each other! The ringer t-shirt design highlights the little lion cub, as that is what this journey is all about......the blessing of our son/children!

We tried to capture our own personal story, while allowing the design to also speak to many other families who are ~ will be ~ or have ~ taken a similar journey to Africa to complete their family! We hope these shirts bless you in your own family story, while allowing ALL of us (adoptive families or adoptive family supporters) to shine a bright light on the joy and blessing of adoption!

We have TWO t-shirt designs and are offering them on high quality shirts!

The Women's SLIM FIT t-shirts are super soft with a stretchy fitted look and feel! THEY ROCK!!! Yes, you will feel as if you are wearing a shirt specially made for your body! These are the very same shirts with the same awesome fit and feel as the Simply Love women's tees! 100% Combed Ringspun Cotton. Tapered waist. These do run smaller than normal and it is recommended that you order one size larger than you would normally order, due to the slimmer cut. Sizes range from: S, M, L, XL. You pick, black or espresso (richer darker brown than picture portrays)!





The same design is offered on a UNISEX NON-FITTED T-SHIRT as well. These will fit true to size and are 4.5 oz, 100% Preshrunk Combed Ringspun Cotton. As you can see, these are also offered in black or brown. The following sizes are available: S, M, L, XL, 2Xl, 3XL, 4XL





Our other design is on the UNISEX RINGER T-SHIRT. These come in 3 great heather color combinations (green, blue, tan). They are pre-shrunk 50/50 Combed Ringspun Cotton/Polyester. Sizes include: S, M, L, XL, 2XL. The color of Africa and the animals will match the color of the ringer around the neck and sleeves. A fun contemporary design with a very soft and comfortable feel! Fits true to size.
