Won't you join us for this mission?

For several months now, we have been following the adoption journey of this amazing family HERE. We have been so moved by their precious daughter Katerina, and by their steadfast faith and testimony through their adoption process. This precious treasure has lived for 9 1/2 years not only without the love of a family, but truly the most basic of needs. She weighs a mere 11 pounds. 11 pounds! That is the size of a newborn. She will be admitted to the intensive care unit of Children's Hopital of Philadelphia immediately upon her arrival in the US.

What could we do? My husband is an ICU nurse. He is an adoptive Dad of 10 children. He has traveled to Eastern Europe. The answer was obvious! We would offer his expertise to this family to assist in transporting this princess home. I have goosebumps at God's fingerprints all over this situation. I am awed by His amazing tapestry as He interweaves lives together. We are so blessed to play even the smallest part in this little one's story of redemption.

We estimate Adam's travel expenses (airfare, food, lodging) will be around $1500. We can not burden this family to fundraise for this expense. God is always so faithful! He has provided the funds for us to adopt 6 children internationally over the last 6 years, so we know this
is merely pocket change in His economy. If you feel led, please use the ChipIn box above.

I have learned so much from watching the faith God has blessed this adoptive family with and know that all of the needs will be provided for. We are blessed to have them in our church congregation. I'll be "chipping in" and encouraging others to do the same.
Thanks for your family's willingness to get involved!!

Goodness.... I am so jealous!! I want to go too!! I can't give much at all but I donated a widow's mite. Hoping you are given more than you asked as you step out in faith once again for the Least of These!

Our God is mighty to save ... one orphan at a time. May He continue to bless your family indescribably as you continue to serve Him.

I am so wishing we had the funds to help...saved this blog all week hoping we'd have some money leftover after bills to do so. I came here today anyway, even though we didn't, but I see that GOD HAS PROVIDED!
