When we decided to adopt from Ethiopia, Michael and Katie were the first couple we met who had already been to Ethiopia. John and I fell in love with Sophia the first time we laid eyes on her. Seeing her big brown eyes and sweet smile made me so excited about our journey to Ethiopia to bring home our children.
Michael and Katie have been such a source of encouragement for us and have supported us in so many ways along our journey. Now it's our turn to support and encourage them. They recently announced that they are adopting a sweet little girl from Europe who has Down's Syndrome. Today Katie posted on her blog that they only have 4 months to finalize this adoption or their daughter will be put in a mental institution. If this happens, her chance of having a forever family will vanish. Once in an institution, she won't be up for adoption.
Please take a moment to read Michael and Katie's story here. Please pray for them as they do all that they can, as fast as they can, to bring their precious girl home in the next 4 months. Pray that God will provide all the resources that they need to make this adoption happen quickly.
If you feel God nudging you to make a donation to their adoption fund, please don't ignore it. They need $40,000 for this adoption. To financially support Michael and Katie and their journey to their daughter please visit their blog and make a donation. How can you say no to this precious face??
