Day 37: Colton for the McIntee Family… Forty to Forever…

Today at Forty to Forever, we are shouting out for a dear family, the McIntees, who has been actively advocating for orphans well before they started their own adoption journey. They had a major roadblock with their first adoption, but they are committed to wait out that roadblock. In the meantime, God has moved them to bring Colton home. Please help them.
Today’s Lent Devotion speaks about making fasting a weekly routine… so that we are constantly reminded of Our Lord and His Work on the Cross… have a read, consider it and make it so… syc

10811130632-Colton-feb2012-1-300x236Colton is a sweet, two year old boy who has Down syndrome.  Isn’t he precious?  Please help us get this sweet boy home!  This is his family’s story…

Kyle and Kara met in 2004 and quickly fell in love. They were soon blessed with four beautiful daughters after that and live a blissfully busy life.  When Kara discovered Reece’s Rainbow, it was like a dream come true. She has always been called to orphans and especially the work of Mother Teresa, but didn’t know how to help. So, having a tangible way to advocate for these children was amazing. Kara spent months advocating for a sweet little redhead, Nico.  When she saw Nico’s face, and after a series of signs from The Lord,  ”someday” became “now.” Kyle wasn’t so sure, but after a while, and some more signs, he was on board too…

Day 36: Gage for the Earleywine Family… Forty to Forever…

Today at Forty to Forever, we are trying to help the Earleywine Family meet an important target – they need a few thousand dollars by month’s end so that they can continue with their adoption or they will lose their referral. Little Gage needs to come home, the place where he is at is not known for good care at all. Please help where you can.

GageToday we are raising money for the Earleywine family who is in a very difficult position.  They need a few thousand dollars by the end of the month to continue with their adoption, or they will lose their referral.  Their son is in a notoriously bad orphanage and needs out!  Here is their story:

“We are a Christian, home-schooling family. We have been married for almost 15 years, and we have been blessed with 6 children ages 12 to4. We love children, and are excited to open our home and family to more children that need a loving family and the care that we can provide to them. I have several siblings who were adopted, and I can remember the joy it brought to my heart to add them to our family when I was growing up. My Husband, Jayson was himself adopted…

Today we were supposed to be raising money for Vanessa for the Abell family.  This time is bittersweet for so many reasons.  It is bitter because Vanessa’s adoption has had to be put on hold until Russia reopens to international adoption.  It’s tragic, because Vanessa must now still wait for her family… so much longer than is necessary.  No child should have to wait to be loved.  Heartbreakingly bitter… but it is also sweet.  God turns even the worst situations into opportunity for great good.

The Abell family was gracious in their time of grief.  They chose to bless another family while their adoption is temporarily on hold.  The Vanchura family also understands the pain of needing to give their child into the hands of God while they wait for their son’s country to reopen.  They are also allowing…
