Review for Gift of Adoption Fund Inc, Techny, IL, USA
Less than a year ago God laid it on our hearts to open our home to an orphan with Down Syndrome. Our 8 year old son has Down Syndrome and we read about the Bamboo Project started about 3 years ago to find homes for the "unadoptable" orphans in China with Down Syndrome. The number of obstacles to adoption, especially the financial made it seem impossible that we could ever adopt! We learned it would cost close to $35,000 but decided to move forward and trust God to provide.
After an amazing amount of paperwork, approvals, fundraisers and grant applications, we are thrilled to say that by the end of January we brought home the sweetest, most precious little girl from China. She lights up our already very busy home! God has provided over and abundantly what we ever could have imagined, Our hearts are forever grateful for Gift of Adoption and all of you who gave so generously to help us completely cover the expenses of the adoption. Thank you for caring enough for the precious children so they can be part of a family. It is such a joy to watch our daughter's great excitement as she experiences things she has never done before such as playing out in the snow today and going for a sled ride. Watching these orphans transform in so many ways once they are in the loving care of a family is absolutely beautiful. Thank you Gift of Adoption!
