Adopting a sibling group of 3

This is my little sister's blessed family of 6! They have been foster parents for over 3 years, and have loved and cared for more than 25 kiddos! I love seeing how they operate as the hands & feet of Jesus, pouring God's love into so many little lives!
They got this little guy when he was just a couple months old, and adopted him in early 2013. Little did they know, that God had even BIGGER plans in store for them...
In the span of just a few short weeks, God has revealed to Matt & Leslie that they will be parents to THREE MORE small children, who have been in the foster care system for several years.
Not pictured above (against rules until officially adopted) the precious sibling group of 3 will soon call the Edens' household "home" & be a part of their forever family! We are all very excited that the courts are rushing to make this transition happen so quickly!
I will never forget, just a couple of weeks ago, Matt telling me, "They are calling me 'Daddy' already. I don't want them to leave." God knows what He is doing, Friends! He has had these little babies' lives ALL LAID OUT, from when He knit them together!!

I know what you're thinking: How can I help?! So glad you asked...

As you can probably imagine, turning into a family of NINE does not come without tremendous financial need. I have NO DOUBT that the Lord has already planned exactly where that money will come from. He calls us to be a father to the fatherless, yet some are not able to bring more kids into our homes. Here is how you can still help answer that call!
Pray about helping Matt & Leslie out in some way.
Their most urgent need is a 12 passenger van, so that they can get around with their (newly) BIG family. :-) So, if any of you knows someone who has a big ol' spare BUS, & wouldn't mind parting with it, please send them to this page...
Otherwise, please pray about funneling your "giving" money to the Edens over the next month or more. I PROMISE YOU, your money will be going to an incredible, godly, worthy cause!
Every little bit will help, so please consider donating whatever amount Jesus puts on your heart!
In His Love, & with MUCH THANKS,
Alicia Thorson

Psalm 68:4-6 :4Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts, Whose name is the LORD, and exult before Him. 5A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation. 6God makes a home for the lonely...
