Bringing Arturs Home


Earlier this year Danny and I traveled to Latvia and adopted a precious 14 year old girl into our family.  We spent right at a month in country and while we were there we had the privilege of meeting an amazing young man that we would later decide to host in hopes of helping him to find his forever family.  Little did we know that we were going to be that family and The Butlers would be growing by one more so soon!  :) 


This is our family minus one greeting our boy at the airport for hosting.  The missing child was at a sports function :)

We are so thrilled to have received travel dates and will be returning to Latvia mid October to bring him home.  It's been no less than a God thing the entire way.  From having his host fees covered, to fundraising to get our dossier submitted and receiving travel dates in record time.  It's been just over a month start to finish and here we are preparing to go!

With that said, we are now scrambling to come up with the travel funds as there has not been enough time to apply for and receive any grants.  We have saved and sold enough to cover most of our attorneys fees but our need is not met for airfare and lodging expenses.

We are looking at roughly $5200 for four tickets and 19 days in an apartment.  God has provided every bit of what we have needed this far when we needed it and we are trusting that is going to happen this time around too but we need to make this known so that you all can be vessels for that provision.  Every dollar is going to count toward meeting this need.  Can you spare a little to help? 

We leave for Latvia in just 22 days and will need to purchase our tickets sooner than later.

It's been an amazing year for our family and we are very thankful to everyone that has been a part of our journey.  Bless you all!
