Our story is similar to thousands of others.
In 2011, we traveled across the world to bring home a little boy from Russia. Liam was only two years old. Unfortunately, in the orphanage he was abandoned in, he had already learned that adults were not safe and that he couldn't trust anyone. He has spent the past six years of his life fighting our love and pushing us away. We have had some ups and downs during these years, always seemingly two steps back and one step forward. We celebrated each one of the forward steps, even the tiniest of them. This year, however, we seem to have hit a wall with Liam being stuck in what his therapist calls "yuck world". We have not seen any steps forward in a long time.
We are hoping that taking him to a family bonding camp will be that one step forward that he needs right now. It is a camp created specifically for kids with problems like Liam's. They have a high success rate helping these kids stop fighting their families and refusing the help they need. We originally planned to go next year, but some of Liam's recent behaviors made us realize that we can't wait that long.
We need help now.
We only have one week to raise the money needed for this camp. A lot of you helped us bring Liam home. You changed this little boy's life and we will never forget it.
Today, we are asking you to consider walking alongside our family once again while we are trying to pave this little boy's way to healing.
