Psalm 127:3-5

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.

Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"

Psalm 127:3-5

Thrivent to the Rescue!

Good Afternoon!  We have just spoken with our Thrivent Representative, Wayne - A great guy with a great big heart!  He has embraced the cause of adopting Nikita and Alexei (Dusty) through Thrivent Insurance for Lutherans.  Here's the deal - tax deductible donations can be made toward rescuing these two little angels, and Thrivent will MATCH donations up to $1258.00!  God is good, and through your prayers and support, we can bring these children home and bring them to Jesus!

Checks can be made out to Thrivent Financial in Fredericksburg (under memo, put the words "Hinz Adoption").  Mail donations to Wayne Sprick, 1220 Heatherbrook Court, Fredericksburg, VA, 22407.  The matching donations are good through December 31, however, donations made after that time will be welcomed, also!

Thanks again for your prayers and help - we need it, and more importantly, Nikita and Alexei need it!


  1. Hi Amy :) I'm Alysha..Our family too has been one that has prayed for little Alexei for what seems like forever now..2 years? Maybe 3. It's such a huge blessing to see God move!
    I usually do the 'As one we can' posts on the RR blog, but have been really laxed since seeing such little response in way of help any more. :( I wanted to let you know though that I'll be posting about your family tomorrow & prayerfully God can grow this blessed matching grant & revieve the giving spirit in the other RR families. Yay for you guys! What beautiful arrows your quiver will hold ♥

  2. I just posted this to my facebook hoping that those local who know and love my sweet girl will want to help you bring home your boys. Praying for lots of donations :)

  3. Just looking through reeces rainbow as usual and came across you guys. And wow you are in Va, same as me! We live in Christianburg Va. And we have also adopted 2 children with downs syndrome. We got them when they were infants, both are 8 now. Which is hard to believe. Just wanted to let you know I am praying for your family and your journey! I feel in love the moment i saw Nikita, and so wished we could adopt again, But at this time it is not to be, But I would love to get to know you guys! Merry Christmas!!!! God Bless! Amy Cunningham
