Our Children In The Philippines

Dustin Smith
Dustin Smith Lebanon, Ohio

We have been granted the adoption of two very special children!! Glen is four years old and Angel is three years old. They live in the Philippines. Prospectively, we will travel in January to bring them home! Through Lifesong, The Tim Tebow Foundation is providing us a matching grant of $3,000! Due to the unexpected speed of this adoption, it now outpaces our ability to save quick enough and we are asking for help! We are extremely grateful and appreciate ALL the help we receive in the last few stretches of funding this adoption!!

Adoption was a movement on our hearts; a beck and call from Christ. While at first, it was difficult to grasp how we would even begin such a calling, it was quickly realized, we had no control! We obeyed the command, there was a transforming presences in our heart’s, and the desire grew exponentially and the path was quickly unfolded before us! We have had anxieties, fear, and strongly persuaded/“working-it-out” discussions between the two of us but our heavenly Father has renewed our strength and continues to guide us to places we would have never dared to walk.

Our total adoption expenses are $36,000 and we have a remaining $10,000!! We are almost there!! Currently, we are working on getting the kids visas and medicals! They will be in our arms very soon! We would love your support and we need your support! Please pray for us as we continue to move forward!!

Love,

The Smith Family
