Seven Adopted and Counting

I want to share a story about a family that is very special to me. I am choosing not to share their names as I would like this donation to be as surprising as possible. The money will be given to the (grand)parents and help pay for basic needs: food, childcare, school supplies, etc.

Ten years ago, two nearly-retired parents found out one of their kids was expecting a baby and unable to care for it. Without hesitation, they applied to become a foster home and after time became their first grandchild's legal parents. This happened year after year and they have now adopted seven children. Because of personal reasons, the (grand)parents never know when a child is on the way, they only know when the phone rings and a case worker is on the other end asking them if they have room for one more.

I love this family like they are my own and I am asking for your help.

Bryan and I are in the process of becoming a foster home so if/when an eighth is born, we can adopt them. But right now, they need more than that comfort. They need THINGS. Please consider donating just $10. I understand that it is a blind donation because I am not giving you much information but I'm hoping that because you KNOW me and my passion for giving back, you will trust that they do NEED this and I'm asking in this way because it's SERIOUS.

Thank you so much!
