A Glimpse of Things to Come....EllieDub!!



















I finally get to post something fun!! A few of you know that we are doing this....but probably most of you don't. Chris, Amelia and Scott Moore and I are beginning a new company to raise orphan awareness and help families financially with the costs of adoptions. Our site is called EllieDub!

Our vision is to create ec0-friendly shirts that are super cool....this particular design will be on a vintage style t-shirt. We want to take elements from each adoptive country and incorporate those themes into the t-shirts....plus each shirt will have a quote written in the specific language!

Our web-site will be up and running (cross your fingers) by November the 18th. Chris and I are going to be the guinea pigs for our own project....and we are beyond excited! We will keep you posted!! This is one of our AWESOME Guatemalan guy t-shirts.

Love you all, Lindsey

Love it, love it, love it! what a great idea! And as for the toddler/infant shirts, I saw one a long time ago that said, "Born in Africa" or some sort of lingo and had the map of Africa made out of an african fabric on it. Very cute on those little boys. just a thought.

Can't wait for all of this to happen! I might be able to pay for your entire adoption with all of my purchases... would it be bad if I got you one for Christmas??? Just wondering. Love you, sister!

Bekah said...

Lindsey, This is really random but I'm pretty sure I know you. Amber Moen added Drew as a friend on Facebook today and I was looking at her profile tonight and your comment on her wall caught my eye...not because I recognized your name but because you are adopting from Guatemala. So I went to your blog and sat there and stared at the screen because you looked so stinking familiar. Then it hit me that we were in Sarah Richmond's wedding together. I haven't had a chance to read much about your adoption story but I will do that tonight. I'll be praying for you guys as things in Guatemala are so up in the air and scary right now. Our blog site is www.adventuresinadoption.blogspot.com and my email is bekahmoser@gmail.com if you want to get in touch with me. The Lord IS mighty in battle and our adoption has been quite the battle as it looks like yours has been as well. It was great to see your face on your blog and your little girl is precious. How old is she? I guess I might find out by reading. Off to read...

Bekah said...

Lindsey--Just finished reading your blog. Wow, girl. We will be on our knees before the Lord for your family. You have walked a hard, hard road. We have pursued Eloisa's adoption for 17 months but we have not in any way experienced the uncertainties that you have been asked to face. Lord, bring your precious daughter, Xio, into Chris and Lindsey's home and allow them to love her, raise her, cherish her, kiss her. The waiting seems unbearable most of the time and I understand the ache to hold your daughter close and rock her to sleep and pray over her. Praying with you...

Bekah said...

Okay, last comment, I promise! Drew said he wants that shirt and to let him know when they are available.

Alison said...

What a great idea! Can't wait to check out the website when it is up and running. We are praying for ya'll and will continue to do so. Keep on posting so we know how to pray. Take care.

Melissa Scott said...

YES,YES,YES.....go Lindsey, Chris, Scott and Amelia...I am all over this you guys and so excited to see God use this new endeavor!!!
Love you guys, praying and can't wait to talk!

Shelly said...

I am a fellow Guatemama following your blog. My heart has been aching for you and your husband. I am praying!

I can't wait for your new website! Please post when it is up and running.

Oh, and we live near you in Mt. Juliet.

Read your site after Bekah and Drew posted about you. My heart goes out to you and your family and you will be in my daily prayers.
We are eagerly waiting to bring an angel girl home from Guatemala and fear all the change.
I pray for some light to shine on your journey so you can bring that little angel home soon.
Trusting in him,

Hi-
My heart goes out to your family.

Something VERY Similiar happened to us during our Guat adoption process last year.

I would love to talk to you and let you know about our process, and to offer you hope.

Hey there- I am peeper of your blog. I will pray for your family as my heartaches for you all. Our God will not let you down, he holds you close to his heart.

I would love to purchase a few tee-shirts. Will you have them available in xs?

Hi Lindsey,
I just came from jajabs blog and wanted to let you know I will be praying for your case. We too have been in a nightmare adoption for almost 3 years. Our kids are now going through an abandonment, and we honestly have very little hope of them coming home.

Please know you have the prayers of many today. I'm so sorry for the blows you've been dealt.

Amen
