The Richardson’s have been awarded a $4,000 matching grant from Hands of Hope Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans! Once this account reaches $4,000 another $4,0000 will be added!
You guess it… The Richardson Tribe is growing again! This time the Lord has lead them to 2 boys.
“Preston” is 9 and “Kaysen” is 16, both having cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Jaime and Chris are rushing to get paperwork done and get to the boys ASAP. Kaysen at 16 weights less than 30 lbs and spends in life confined to a crib, receiving 300 calories of nutrition a day. He is wasting away. Preston on the other hand is thriving! He was on the brink of death before some missionaries were able to get him medical care and through a series of God sized events, he was able to enter a loving foster home. The government, however, is stating that he will have to return to the orphanage where he almost died if a family doesn’t come for him very soon!
In a way only God can orchestrate, the missionaries who worked to get Preston out of the orphanage partner with Hands of Hope. Some of the Hand of Hope team have even met Preston!
The Richardsons need to get to the boys as soon as possible and they are praying for God to open the situational and financial doors to do so quickly.
Kayson and Preston will be joining their 10 siblings, all adopted, and parents in Indiana, where they will have a wonderful church and local community to help support their growth and development. Their soon-to-be baby sister also has epilepsy and cerebral palsy and she has provided a wonderful encouragement and an experience base to the family as they prepare to Lord willing welcome Preston and Kaysen home.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support in getting these precious children into a family where they will be cherished and belong.
