Our hearts are broken for the Orhpans in Nicaragua. Many will age out of the system without ever knowing a a loving and stable forever family! While we already have four children we feel our home and hearts are big enough to open up to more. We anxiously await a placement of 1-3 children, from age 3-16. Adopting multiple children at once adds to the high cost of international adoption and Nicaragua is especially costly because famlies are required to stay in country for 2-5 months while the adoption is complete. We have added an extra bedroom and bathroom onto our house in anticaipation of our new larger family and will also need to add a large van in order to transport everyone. With these added expenses we have decided to fundraise the entire cost of our adoption so finances don't add stress to our new family. we have had a huge Garage sale, bake sales, t shirt sales, a dinner, asked local businesses to match our raised funds and are currently applying for grants. We are working hard on our end while Praying hard that our our match will be in Gods will on the other end!
Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world. --James 1:27
