Help us bring Jelena here for Christmas!

Adoption and caring for orphans worldwide is a passion of ours.  We have always been adovates for adoption, and brought home our youngest son from Ethiopia in 2009. 

We have the opportunity to host a girl from Latvia over the Christmas holiday.  (side note:  I have been to Latvia 7 times with a mission organization teaching English and discipleship) We would like to host a girl who has aged out of the system and is not eligible to be adopted.  Statistically, her chances of being successful are low.  Studies have shown that 80% of orphans who have aged out of the system fall victim to crime, poverty, prositution, and death.  We want to make that one less.  We want to provide a "family base" for her so that she can pursue study here (if she chooses), and to just encourage her and love her so  that she knows she is valued and loved.

This hosting opportunity takes some effort and money.  We are responsible for covering her travel expenses which total $2950.  We're wondering if you can help.  Even just a little.  We know that God will provide if this is His will for us and for this girl.  Thank you!
