Once upon a time there were 2.  Then there were 3, 4, 5.  Big surprises, the country of China, and huge adventures brought them 7, 8, and 9.  And then there was a little boy who needed a family for the summer.  Eastern Europe this time, but still just a little boy who needed a family to help him grow, develop, and reach his potential by providing what we can here that he can’t get there.  It was awesome, amazing, and precious.  He calls us family —  his American family —  his Mama and Papa and brothers and sisters.  He came back for another trip this winter and will come back to us for the summer and we will treasure our time again.  We have worked hard all year to cover his trips. BUT, there are always those left behind.  This time for us, it is a sister and a brother who also need our family.  They need the time and the treasure.  We have the room, we have the love, and we have the time.  Can you help with the travel?  They will be able to get some medical help that they need and also to just be kids enjoying summer.  We were expecting 1 and are joyously anticipating 3!  Amazing!!!  We feel clearly led to be taking this leap and trust that God will provide everything that we will need.  We are working hard to do our part but if you feel like you would like to be a part of this incredible adventure we, and they, will be so very grateful.  

We’re working on a “tag the bag” fundraiser to show these sweet kids how much they are loved. When you donate any amount, add a message for the children in the comments section, or email us your message at theworldwillchangeblog@gmail.com and we will write your words of love and encouragement on the suitcases which they will take back to Eastern Europe with them! 

We will also be posting updates during the kids’ time with us in a private Facebook group, which you are welcome to follow. Just send us an email at theworldwillchangeblog@gmail.com with a request to join the group and we will send you a link to join!

Dear friends: 
We are funded to bring O, V, and Dima here for the summer and we are SO thankful!! 

Many of our sweet friends and family members chipped in to support us, and we thank you all so much. The kids will be here in 31 days and we cannot wait. We skyped with our Dima today and he is so excited to come back - YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN!! We cannot thank you enough. 

We do want to extend a special thank-you to the incredible, wonderful Tatyana Alpatova and her group of friends in TX (including Marina Dubkova-Deyo), who fundraised over $2,000 to bring the kids here. Tatyana has encouraged us, supported us, and worked SO hard to make this happen and it. is. incredible.  These kids will never know how dearly they are loved. Tatyana and her friends have gone above and beyond anything that we had ever expected or hoped for. We never, ever planned to be fully funded for this summer - only our incredible God, working through such sweet sweet friends, could have made this happen. 

Thank you, friends. If you have prayed for us, shared a fundraiser, contributed financially, given us loving words (even if you think we're crazy! ;) ), sent clothes for the kids (thank you Stephanie L Cato!!), or supported us in a myriad of other ways - you are making a difference to these three sweet kiddos - and to our family! 

And Tatyana - thank you. You have blessed us so much, and you have been just so encouraging and loving throughout this - and oh my goodness your help has been incredibly, amazingly, wonderful!! Thank you thank you thank you!! 

We are just thrilled to love on O, V, and our sweet Dima this summer and we have so much fun planned! 


Thank you so much for all of your help and love through this - we cannot wait for June 5th!!! <3 <3 <3
