Prayerfully Consider

"Believe it or not, some people find a real blessing in partnering with adoptive parents to help bring an orphan home. God commands us to be one body of Christ and while some are not able to raise an orphan by adopting them, they feel blessed to be able to contribute something financially."

Well I've officially been quoted. I wrote this on an adoption forum, and someone thought it was enough said on the topic of receiving donations to help bring your child home.

I have certainly found this to be true, and it is people like this that play a vital role in helping an orphan to come home to their family. So thank you....... it is deeply appreciated.

Even in the midst of our own adoption, I feel that I should still help others adopting too. It may sound like alot of donation passing around, but it is much more than that. Above and beyond what we have saved for this adoption and what we give away as our normal tithe, my husband and I feel very passionate about helping others. After all, it really all belongs to Him, and I trust without a doubt the He will make our money go further than what John and I could do on our own.

We have been incredibly blessed to have so much support this adoption---- and one day Alexsey will know how many people went out of their way to be able to be a part of bringing him home! Thank you so much!

So I feel compelled to write that if you were thinking of donating to our adoption anytime this week that you please donate it to Amy who is going to travel this Wednesday on her second trip to adopt her little boy with Down Syndrome. She sure can use a little help. She already has three wonderful boys at home, two of them with Down Syndrome, and she is fixing to add one more precious boy to her bunch! She is doing this as a single Mom and I must say she is a great one at that! Some unexpected things have come up recently that have made finances an issue, so I am asking you to prayerfully consider donating towards her adoption.

Thanks!

Thank you, Christine, for leading me to someone that I might be able to help; even if it's only a small amount. I feel blessed being able to partner with y'all to get these beautiful children into their forever homes.

Raising them for Him,
Christi
