The Cook Clan is growing by two more plates! We fell in love with a set of 12 year old orphaned twins from Latvia and are working hard to bring them home and be their forever family. The road has been long and winding, but God has been present and His direction has been clear. International adoption is staggeringly expensive and we have already paid out roughly $20,000 in this venture. $15,000 in fees remain, plus the travel costs, which will be significant since three trips to Latvia are required and we will need to stay there for roughly three weeks on the first trip. We know that these kids have captured the hearts of so many and we ask that you would consider donating to help us get them home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the prayer, support, and cheerleading you have provided thus far.

Much love from our clan to yours,

The Cook Family
