Marley’s Adoption

Marley brings joy into every room and situation she steps in! “Hi, my name is Marley!” She doesn’t really know a stranger, and wow is she a cutie! Her adorable blonde hair and blue eyes are trumped only by her repertoire of sayings; “My job is to be pretty and cute!”, “Grammy, aren’t you so glad to see me?”, and of course after praying, a simple amen won’t do, “...and God, give yourself a hug!”

She entered Jon (Doug & Lisa Watkins) and Julie (Kris & Trina Mavin) Watkins’ lives in May, and they are looking to make it permanent. They have opened their home to this 6 year old girl who needed longer term love and nurturing.

Meetings have been had and a clear direction towards permanent adoption now is in place. They need your support. They need emotional, spiritual, and yes, financial support. This goal amount includes everything needed to make a private adoption take place: home study, parental support, administrative, agency, and court fees. Would you consider helping this family become permanent and official?
