The Story

Michael and Maria met in 1987 and have been together ever since. They have been blessed with 2 bio babies. Then GOD worked more miracles. They have traveled to Guatemala in 2006, Ethiopia in 2008 , and Ukraine in 2010 & 2012 to add 5 more children to their family. Their eyes were opened to the need of orphans around the world. Especially the least of these, the special need orphans. 2 of their children have Down syndrome and 1 child has Fetal alcohol syndrome. The children have thrived and reached milestones that have surprised everyone.   They downsized home and belongings to focus on family and giving back. They now live on a beautiful 10 acre farm covered with old oak trees in the country. Their home is a cozy 5 bedroom  filled with children, pets , noise,  lots of music and dancing. Their children spend time outside with the horses, goats, chickens, pot belly pigs , dogs and cats. The older children love to spend time at church singing and playing guitar in the praise band. All of their children have a heart for people and animals in need. They thought their family complete, although Maria knew "someone" was missing.
Monkey was the piece of the puzzle that God surprised them with! She is a vibrant funny active 7 year old little girl. Although this is a domestic adoption the costs are still more then the family has on hand. Humbly the family is now asking for help bringing Monkey home. Maria has spent so much time advocating for and fundraising for orphans and other families in need but this time it is for their family. They would be so honored and blessed if you would pray for , share and donate to they journey. Sometimes it really does take a village. Will you be part of our village? Xoxo
