We have BIG news!
We are adopting TWO special needs teens from Eastern Europe!
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome these beautiful boys into our home. As part of our adoption process, we are fundraising to help cover the adoptions costs. We are also anticipating major expenses to make our home and vehicle more accessible for welcoming two boys in wheelchairs to our family. We will also be maxing out our high deductible insurance plan immediately upon admitting Malachy to the hospital when we arrive home.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our children as they grow.
The Askvig family resides in Salt Lake City, Utah. David and Jackie have been married nearly 9 years and have four biological children, a daughter who’s almost six, a four-year-old son, and twins that are one and a half. They stumbled upon Reece’s Rainbow early in their marriage and so began their heart for orphans and vulnerable children. In 2016, the Askvigs became licensed foster parents and fostered a total of four children. They assumed that foster care would be their story until a Reece’s Rainbow post stopped them in their tracks and God showed them that now was their time to bring home a special needs child from abroad. They began pursuing a beautiful teen from an Eastern European country and are hoping to expedite the process for this sweet boy’s grave health. After they started the process for Malachy, the Askvigs saw Bruno, learned more about his story and his sweet soul, and knew he was theirs too. Just days before his 16th birthday, the Askvigs committed to add him to their adoption. Join them in prayer for these boys' sustenance and a smooth, quick journey.
