Missionary family needs your help to adopt child

My sister, Lisa, and her husband, Jacob, are trying to adopt a child here in the States. They are both Christian missionaries to Turkey and have lived there for more than 10 years. My sister found out a long time ago that she is unable to have children of her own due to medical conditions. Over the last 2-3 years, she has been back and forth with several doctors through the artificial way. However, all these times she has been unsuccessful to produce any children. A few months ago, a woman contacted her because she heard she was looking to adopt. That woman had a child of her own and is in the process of considering giving her child up for adoption to Lisa and Jacob. To start the adoption process, they will need $3,000. I have started this fundraiser to help them with that cost. The catch is that the mother has the right to not go forward with this. They are waiting for her consent. If this happens, then the adoption process will not happen and Lisa and Jacob will go back to Istanbul to work. If money is collected through this campaign and they do not go forward with the adoption process, the money will be used to fund their missionary work in Turkey.

 

Here is a link to their Facebook page.

I have also included a link to their website to show you the amazing things they have done and are doing in Turkey.
