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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to join the group and we will send you a link to join!
