Keep The Boys Home

One of my very best friends needs help to adopt two young brothers, his great-nephews, that have been a part of his family for the last three and a half years.

Jon Cross and his wonderful wife, Natalie, have a full house: three biological children, their ophaned nephew, and the two little boys. All three nephews have become part of the family.

The boys came from a difficult situation. They had been with their parents, their grandmother, Foster Care and their grandmother's again all before they were two and three years old. Jon and Natalie stepped up, opened their home and hearts to house and love them. They are now 5 and 6. The boys have done well in their home and have grown quickly!

Unfortunately they have to battle in court with immediate family but Jon and Natalie love these boys and are broken hearted to think of the boys going back to the turmoil of their previous situation. The Cross family chose to adopt the two brothers and started the process six months ago in Florida but now, because of jurisdiction changes, they need to travel to Texas and they need additional, immediate funds to handle the legal bills as well as travel costs.

Thanks to the generous offerings of friends and family we now only need $5000 for the legal fees and expenses. The next court date is July 28, 2017.

If you know what a broken home does to young children, please help the Cross family to save these two brothers by keeping them at the only stable home they have ever known.
