Lakes Family Adoption Details

Lakes Family Adoption

The basics: The Lakes are a family of seven who are adopting a child with special needs from Serbia. They were denied the grant they were counting on to help fund the adoption and are now in a sprint to come up with the remaining $5,400.

The second to youngest son, Simeon ("Eon") has Down Syndrome. Since his birth, his mom, Tara (also an occupational therapist), has learned more about the horrors of life for orphans with Special Needs in other countries and has become a personal advocate for the safety and adoption for the 147 million orphans in the world.
