Many of you know my heart for adoption. I was once in foster care and it was a horrible experience. not only because I was removed from my mother which is traumatizing, but because I was placed with an abusive foster mother. I believe the Lord is placing it on many hearts and is raising up many Christian families to adopt these children. Please keep us in prayer as we are seeking to adopt a sibling set that is really on our hearts. There is a special sibling set of believing children that I'd love to ask prayer for and I am also hoping that you will forward this information to anyone who might be interested in adopting from foster care, also to the prayer warriors that you know. Many times God uses godly Christians to change the lives of the helpless forever. Did you know that Dave Thomas of Wendy's was adopted ?( I believe from foster care) He has a HUGE organization that gives free info and offers assistance for those considering fostering and or adopting. Anyhoo, this sibling set is available for adoption. There are 7 of them including a set of twins. They are in Oklahoma but it is possible to adopt them from any state. Did you know that when you adopt from foster care, the children get free medical and dental AND FREE EDUCATION at both college AND university? You get to experience the rewarding joy of loving a child and changing the course of their lives for the better. You get to add to your family! You would probably get assistance with foster care funds until the adoption is finalized and you may qualify to get Adoption Assistance Funds even after you adopt. (though obviously money shouldn't be THE reason. There are many unsavory characters that foster for money. ) I pray that these children would find a strong loving Christian home with people who truly love them and help them meet their full potential in Christ. (and that isn't doing it "just for the money." Here are the cute kiddos. They are SO precious. Please pray them into a good home. My heart breaks for them I can't imagine my children being separated from one another for any amount of time. :-) Please also let me know if any of you adopt them. Some amazing family will be abundantly blessed by these children!

A dispruption from Haiti, she lives in thge US, at her site you can find out about other disruptions which are in he US with kids from ukriane, Russia and other places you'd typically ghave to pay $30,000 to adopt a child from. Perhaps this would be a blessing for someone wanting international but that cannot afford it?
