One Less Aging Out Details

 

We are Brad and JJ Roberson. 2.5 years ago we adopted 2 kids from Ethiopia. 3 days before we traveled I found out I was pregnant. Oh how God's plans are better than ours. We already had 2 biological kids at home. We couldn't believe God was entrusting us with 5 kids. And He wasn't stopping at that. Several months ago we found out that our daughter's biological mother is pleading for us to adopt her other daughter. She is 15 years old (about to turn 16) and we have found out that we are her ONLY option for adoption. The birthmother is HIV+ and her health is failing. If we don't adopt her now or we delay or "wait until we have enough money" it will be too late and she will become one of the statistics. She will age out and will be.....unadoptable. By contributing to our adoption fundraiser, you can help us beat the clock before she ages out. I've seen it happen - a dollar here, $5 there - it all combines and gets multiplied and suddenly it's thousands. Would you please consider contributing whatever you can to help us bring her home?

It's not about whether nor not the shoe fits...in an earthly sense... it's about whether or not you say "YES" to wearing it anyway. If HE SAYS the shoe fits.....WEAR IT.....

picture idea and quote from Carolyn Vetter Twietmeyer of Project Hopeful.

(The red shoes are for HIV/AIDS awareness. This is Amaya. Her sister is the one that is getting close to aging out. Their birthmother is HIV+.)

Irvin Family 8/1/2012 $100.00 Can't wait to see all 8 of you together and sweet sisters reunited! Proud of you for following God's call even when it's scary-- Hebrews 13:5-6 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

Anonymous 8/12/2012 $25.00 I have a special place in my heart for seeing bio siblings adopted into the same family -- and also for children who are "aging out" of the system. God bless you for meeting these two needs for these girls -- and for their mother!!
