I really hesitated on posting this as I am not someone who enjoys asking for money, but after seeing the willingness of the amazing avgeek community to contribute, I figured it was worth a shot.
As you can see from the above picture, it is a pretty awesome t-shirt that I am talking about, and it is in support of an even more awesome cause: my new son’s adoption.
If you would like to read the full story please head on over to our adoption blog, but if you just want the highlights, here you go.
My wife and I have talked about adoption since we got married almost ten years ago, but it was just never the right time, until we moved to Japan and met some friends in my new squadron that were adopting from China. To make a long story short, after about eight months of paperwork and waiting, we were paired with our new son that we have named Ty Drechsel Lynn.
We are now within about two months of traveling to China and just trying to raise whatever funds we can to help make that happen. I have been overwhelmed with the generosity of people I hardly even know, and in some cases don’t know at all.
If you would like to buy one of these awesome T-shirts and help with some of our expenses then I would greatly appreciate it. There are a lot of great causes out there so thanks in advance for your support.
