Continue To Help The Sanders Crew
I am the proud grandmother of six more precious grandchildren. My daughter, Christina Sanders and my son-in-law Christopher Sanders have five biological children (Christopher, Cameron, Caden, Chaz and Caitlyn) and have recently adopted a family of six siblings.
Christina and Christopher became foster parents two years ago. Coby, Christian, Caleb and Carson were the first children to be placed in their home. The children expressed a concern for being with their other two siblings who are now called Caylee and Chloe. After her oldest son moved out, space became available to finally join the two sisters. All the children changed their names to have the same initials C.M.S.
On Thursday, April 27, 2017 the Sanders adopted all six of the children. Now they have eleven children.
The family would greatly benefit from a 15 passenger van so that the whole family can travel together instead of taking two vehicles.
Any support for this family would be greatly appreciated!

From our family to yours, thank you for all of the kind words, support, donations & shares.
Here are a few of the publications that have shared out story:

All additional donations will go towards expanding the dining room and to a dinner table big enough for the whole family.
A sincere thanks to all of you who supported our campaign! We're so excited about being able to ride together soon. (Check back for updates)
Our family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support shown to us through your generous donations whatever the amount. The comments we read were so encouraging and uplifting; it brought us to tears. Words cannot express the appreciation and gratitude we feel inside. We sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support.
It encourages our hearts that there are so many caring people in the world. Thanks again for helping us with the van. All additional donations will go toward an addition to our home to have enough space for a dining table that will seat the entire family.
Many more thanks to everyone for your generosity and support. May God Bless You All!!!!
I would like to thank you so much for keeping those children together! Sibling groups have an absolutely huge claim on my heart. Not only are two of my brothers adopted together, but my husband and I are going to court on Tuesday the 9th to finalize the adoption of our Super 7 as we call them. We have one bio son which gives us a mere 8 compared to your amazing 11! We have the same heart as you guys, to keep them together no matter what! God has called every believer to help the fatherless and for some that means adoption and for others it means to support and help those who are adopting. I'm so glad you have been able to raise your goal to get a van! We have a Ford 3500 15 passenger and we love it! It's a great car! I would love to be able to donate, but we are currently in the process of paying off our car so we can move into a bigger house to be able to adopt again. Our super 7 have a baby sister still in the system that we are trying to bring home. So sorry for the long comment, I just am in awe of your family and can't thank god enough for people like you. God will bless your family!
Congrats on meeting your funding goal! Might I recommend that you keep it going? I work in the auto industry, and the amount you have raised thus far (36,000) should be adequate for the sticker price on a base model Ford E350, but probably won't cover taxes, title, license, and dealer fees, not to mention any additional equipment or features which may be of value to your family. If I worked for Ford (which I don't), or if I still lived in Cincinnati (which I don't) I would be knocking on lots of doors and sending lots of emails to try to get you the best deal around. (I'm only mentioning Ford here because they are the only ones I know who make a 15 passenger vehicle.)
We added a sibling group of 4 to our family of 6 and transportation is always a struggle. We too, have been trying to get a bigger vehicle so we don't have to take 2 cars. Congratulations on making your goal! I know this will help lighten the load. From one foster family to another, Bless you all :)
I'm so so glad you guys have exceeded your goal! Bless your family!!!! We finalized our adoption yesterday! Here is the article on our family and our story! http://www.wsbtv.com/news/georgia/7-siblings-adopted-together-in-georgia-after-1359-days-in-foster-care/521223064
I may be wrong but from what I've been told when a child legally gets adopted they are no longer eligible for that monthly allowance from social services. That child is now the family's responsibility so unless they receive services based on their eligibility due to their income, they would t be receiving a monthly check anymore for these children.
I wish I had money right now to give to your beautiful family but all I can do right now is to tell you: How grateful I am: to have read your story, for it makes me feel grateful that I am alive. How grateful I am: that I have my health and so does my husband and our son. How grateful I am: that your family has helped me look into how Christ can help me today. How grateful I am: that I have read your story, for its stories like this that help me to grow stronger so I can help others succeed. Thank you
I just want to say thank you for showing the world what LOVE truly is. Your story has touched my heart and I pray it inspires more people to love unconditionally and ask themselves "How can I impact someone else's life?" Thank you for your sacrifice of love!! I can't donate because I'm recently unemployed and struggling to pay for nursing school, but I will support you with prayers, thoughts, and sharing your story with all who will listen!!
