And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. Matthew18:5

If you've ever adopted, or know someone who know that adoption is EXPENSIVE!!

 But how can you put a price on a soul? Can you see the joy of being in a family picture? Of belonging?  Dima is on the far left, then Teague(bio), McKell(bio), then Slava.
 Even if you adopt in the United States, you are looking at around $24,000.00 for one child.  International adoption is that much PLUS all your travel fees, and orphanage donations.  I am asking for support for Our Brother and Sister in law Kip and Darcy Deaton.  They started their journey by hosting a boy from Eastern Europe(sorry not allowed to name the actual country..but it starts with U.)  A cute 12 yr old boy with a quirky grin.  They went in to it thinking they would give him a great Christmas, and fun 6 weeks.  BUT.........God.....grabbed them by the heart strings and said......."this one is yours".........and they couldn't send him back.....alone......forever. 

 A tearful goodbye between brothers.

This was headed to the airport after D's first visit.  He didn't know he would be back.  Can you see the hopelessness?  Break My Heart!

And so the process began.  Then  the opportunity came up for them to host him again for the summer, and they jumped at the chance!  They knew they were planning to adopt him and wanted to get to know him better, to see his face, to love on him some more.  BUT hosting isn't free.......YOU have to pay 2,700.00 to get them here.  They have done this twice. Then the hosting program begged them to host another little guy who's family had to back out on hosting him.  He is 11, in hopes that they could find a family to adopt him............well they didn't find ANOTHER family...........God found theirs.  So they have added S to their family as well :)  This makes a lot of the expenses double.  They are willing and excited about adding these two boys to their home! is costing them everything...........but what price do you put on a soul? on a child?  Whatsoever you do unto the least of do unto me.

 On top of all the agency fees, home study fees, fingerprinting fees, physicals, etc. etc.  they have had to pay the hosting fees, they have had to do some major updating and remodeling of their old farm house to pass the homestudy safety inspection........expenses they were not prepared for.

Darcy has had a garage sale, a flea market sale......sold her car, (leaving them with one vehicle) emptied her house of most of her decorations......any thing not absolutely necessary to scrape together enough for the next installment.  PEOPLE!!!!!!!!  This is not right!  WE the CHURCH NEED TO HELP!!  We are commanded to care for the orphans and widows.  We are not all called to adopt, but we are all called to HELP CARE FOR.  Kip and Darcy need help.  They still need around $38,000 to finalize everything.  If they don't get help........they are considering selling their house.  They are willing to sacrifice everything to give these boys a home.  BUT lets HELP them so they don't have to.  What does the cost of a meal out cost you?  Stay home tonight, and tomorrow........and send the money to a much bigger cause.  EVERY penny helps!!!!  PLEASE!!!  Pass this on! Share with everyone you know!  Lets show them that they are LOVED!!  Lets show them they are not forgotten! Not alone!!
