Bring Nellie and Marin Home!
We are raising funds to adopt a Romani girl from Bulgaria who is blind and has been institutionalized for the first five years of her life (for updated information visit our blog - http://bringingnhome.blogspot.com/). Being institutionalized has limited her development and will continue to limit her ability to reach her full potential. She is nonverbal at this time, will only walk with a caregiver's hand, and has been known to snuggle with other children due to feeling lonely and isolated. Our family can provide a nurturing environment for her to thrive in, with plenty of love, four helpful siblings (one of whom is excessively snuggly), and lots of singing and auditory stimulation (also known as extremely chatiness).
We are also adopting an 8 year-old boy with a "magical" left arm and scoliosis - he's a charmer and would fit right into our family.
One and a half years ago your donation helped us bring our sweet Anelia home!
She is thriving! She is learning to use her guide cane and she is almost ready to begin Braille. Mostly she is learning to love.
We are stepping out in faith again to adopt another child. She is 1.5 years old, totally blind, and precious. We will travel to China to bring her home.
Ways to help:
1. Share our You Caring page with coworkers, members of your faith community, anyone with a heart for children! www.youcaring.com/kimberly-and-nathanael-schildbach-486977
2. Watch our progress on Facebook! www.facebook.com/kimberly.schildbach
3. Give a donation! This adoption will cost us another $30,000
4. Pray with us!
Thank you so much!
The Schildbach family Nate and Kim, Lucas, Gaelan, Jericho, Anellia and Olive Ann
