A STORY OF THREE ORPHANS: We were originally Called to adopt sweet Nikita, an orphan with Down Syndrome in Eastern Europe. Unfortunately, Nikita passed away on February 25 from Leukemia. Nikita had just turned three years old. Though we weren't able to adopt Nikita, he is in the arms of Jesus. We know that finding and loving him was for a greater purpose and still part of God's perfect plan because Nikita has paved the way for our hearts to open up to Dusty and Sonya. These two children, Dusty who is 6, and Sonya who is 5, are in the same orphanage where we found our dear Nikita.
Dusty and Sonya both have Down Syndrome. They need help to face the daily challenges that are ahead of them. Additionally, Dusty has central nervous system issues, and Sonya has heart problems. Amy and I have fallen in love with these most vulnerable children, and if you feel moved, we would love to enlist your help to rescue Dusty and Sonya!
The "Bring Dusty & Sonya Home" FundraiserTo help Dusty and Sonya, we are forming a fundraiser featuring TWO gifts. One contributor will receive an iPad 2! Additionally, one contributor will receive an iPhone 4! While the most important part of this effort is helping these vulnerable children in need, we understand that gifts (iPad 2, iPhone 4) can be incentives to support worthy causes!
