We are the Watsons–Justin, Jennifer, Zoe (11) and Xander (8) and we are doubling our family through adoption. We are matched with four siblings in the country of Moldova who have been waiting for years for a family to keep them together. There are three girls ages 7, 6 and 3 and a little boy age 5. There are some medical needs and one with special needs (fetal alcohol syndrome), so getting to us to start the healing process is important.
We appreciate any help anyone can provide. International adoption is expense and the cost only increases when you adopt four. Cost or not, they need their family, so we appreciate everyone who helps us bring them home. Prayers are encouraged! Thank you!
UPDATE: We have been given the go ahead to travel and will be leaving the week of October 5th to finally meet our children! We will be staying in Moldova for approximately 3 months to complete our adoption and bring our children home by Christmas!! Praise God!! We haven't met our fundraising goal yet, so we appreciate anything you may be able to give. Thank you and God bless your family!
