Have you heard our adoption testimony?
Let me tell you a little about how this came about… Jeremy and I were not even talking about international adoption. We were busy and content with our 2 girls and our foster son. However, everything changed when a co-worker of mine told me about a little boy sitting in an orphanage in China. She showed me a video and pictures of him and my heart instantly melted and I felt like he belonged in our family! Our girls feel the same way and they are excited to make him their brother.
Let me tell you where his story began… This little boy was abandoned when he was 8 months old. He has been living in an orphanage since then. He is now almost 4 years old. He has a condition called Arthrogryposis. Arthrogryposis means a child is born with joint contractures. This means some of their joints don’t move as much as normal and may even be stuck in one position. Often muscles around these joints are thin, weak, stiff, or missing. All 4 of his limbs are affected. So far, he has not received any treatment for his condition.
This adoption is not something we were planning on which is why we are desperately trying to raise money to bring this little boy home as soon as possible. He is 4 which means he has gone almost 4 years without the love and medical care he needs. The sooner we can get him home, the better.
