Help bring our 2 boys back home.

Marinda Wise Jacksonville, Florida

We are mid way through the adoption of not one, but TWO amazing boys in South America. We had the great honor and joy of hosting the older of the two.

“A” was such a delight and we KNEW he was our son, from the first second we laid eyes on him. Our neighbor hosted the younger of the two boys, “D” and we fell in love with him as well.

We wanted both boys to be our sons and to be brothers! However, we knew that adopting two unrelated boys from this specific country was not the norm. From that point, until now, God has allowed us to move one obstacle after another, out of the way. We know HE is in this and we are counting down the days until our family is reunited! We are beyond humbled and thankful for those of you who have helped us along the way!!

We are excited to announce that we have  been awarded a $5000 matching grant from Blue Mountian Baptist Church + Orphans All Funds, administered by Lifesong for Orphans!!

This matching grant is a WONDERFUL way to make your gifts count for TWO boys TWO times!!
