Coming to America?

You have the opportunity to help bring a young boy from Ukraine into our home this summer. His name is Sergiy. He is a young boy living in the same orphanage as Erik, the son Michael & Denise Redman are currently adopting. He is said to be quiet & shy but sweet. I would love to open our hearts and home during the month of August to Sergiy. As many of you know after our own personal adoption of Marcus & Macey we do not have it in our monthly budget to pay the expenses necessary to bring him here. The cost is $2000 + the cost of living for the month he is with us. This is an amazing opportunity for him & for our family. We can not do this on our own. We need your support. If 20 people gave $100 each the initial cost would be covered. If 40 people gave $50 the cost would then be covered, you get my point. If everyone gave something this young boy could have a month of freedom & love. You would be blessed knowing you had a part in the changing of this little ones life. Can you imagine how Erik Redman would feel knowing his best friend would be coming to visit shortly after he made his home in America. What a sweet reunion that would be. Why do we want to do such a thing? Because of Sergiy. Just like with the adoption of Marcus & Macey it was always about them. What was best for them. Will it be easy? Not likely. There will be the language barrier. He will speak very little English, if any. But, we can show him he is wonderfully & beautifully made, valued & adored. This month in our home could change his life. We would love to introduce him to our church family & the love & warmth each of you have to offer. We can share the love of Jesus with him. That to me is the why? How? By each of you reading this giving something. We all have something to give our money to. Know that you will be planting a seed in the life of this child. One that I pray will have eternal rewards. Wayne & I know we can not do this on our own. We need your help. Sergiy needs your help. Please pray & ask God how you can support Sergiy in coming to America. This would be his dream come true. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions. I do not know a lot of details. What I do know is there is an opportunity & a child in need & we want to be used by God to fill it.
