FEATURE FAMILY - The Down's Family

This is the family we have chosen to support, Robert and Bethanie Downs and their 3 beautiful children.  Here is their story....
       Robert and Bethanie felt called to adopt way back, even as teenagers when they were just dating. Bethanie always thought it was "so cool" how God put kids that didn't have parents together with parents that wanted to have kids, or more kids. Also, her grandparents adopted her uncle and Robert has 2 older sisters that adopted 4 kids each through foster care.
After complications with their twins' pregnancy, Robert and Bethanie couldn't have any more children. It was then they seriously started talking about adopting. In 2007, they started the process, but felt God closed all  the doors. After years of praying for God's timing, they started looking into it again in 2010.  Last year, in May, they truly felt God's "go", and now are in the process of adopting a little boy from Ghana, Africa.
They are in need of about $3000 to be able to send in their paperwork.  PLEASE HELP THEM REACH THEIR GOAL!!!!


Hello Everyone!!!!  Most of you know that our family (the McDonald's) adopted TJ from Ukraine 2 years ago.  We cannot even begin to tell you how much he has blessed our lives.  Through that process, the Lord has given us all a heart for orphans and helping other people experience the incredible blessing that adopting a child brings.  My children and their friends have all been wanting to help other families that are trying to adopt children and came up with this idea.  They will be choosing different adopting families and will be making various crafts to sell to help them raise money for their adoption.  (As many of you know, adopting can get quite costly).  They will also be putting a chip-in link for donations.  Please spread the word and help out in anyway possible!!!!  Thanks for your support!!!
