Mina is a precious little girl recently rescued from an orphanage in Eastern Europe who is now finally home with her forever family! She had been without a mother or father to love her & care for her each day. No one to rock her, kiss her gently or tell her she's loved. She is blessed with an extra chromosome known as Down syndrome, which for her that meant a life of being viewed as worthless in the country she was born into & a life without hope. Because of this her parents gave her up at the age of 6 months when they found out the diagnosis & from there her life progressivly went down hill. We are the Gower family residing in OKC who recently adopted this little angel. She was extremely malnourished and unable to do just about anything when we first met her. She will be 2 in January & is the size of a 3-6 month old weighing 14lbs. She continues to amaze us at how quickly she is progressing with love and nutrition. She has learned to sit up, roll over, feed herself finger foods, hold her own bottle and loves to interact with toys and other children. Her life has changed so much in such a short period of time and will forever be changed! Thank you Lord for putting a burden on our hearts to rescue this little blessing and making her apart of our family!

Getting the word out there!

I've been working on getting the info out about our big sale event coming up in 2 weeks.  Here's some info!!

Introducing Mina. A precious little girl that now sits in an orphanage waiting for a family to rescue her from a life spent in a crib. Mina has most likely been there since birth without a mother or father to love her or care for her each day. No one to rock her, kiss her gently or be told she is loved.

Mina is blessed to have an extra chromosome known as Down syndrome. Which for her that means a life of being viewed as worthless in the country she was born into. Around the age of 4-5 children with special needs are transferred into institutions where they will most likely never again enjoy sunlight and 50-80% will die within the 1st year of being transferred due to lack of care.

We are the Gower family residing in OKC currently in the process of adopting this little angel. She is waiting for us to come bring her home to have a forever family that loves and cares for her! A family that will help her have the best life she can and help her to fulfill the purpose for which God created her.

We are ready and able to meet the financial needs of this precious child once she is home. Unfortunately the cost to rescue her from the life she’s currently living in is around $25,000.

We are doing numerous fundraisers to help raise funds to bring her home. We are selling Krispy Kreme cards, have an online coffee shop fundraiser, and selling Scentsy products to name a few.

Also upcoming May 21st & 22nd is an extremely HUGE sale, Auction, and Baked Goods Event at Mayfair Baptist Church gymnasium located at 2715 Northwest 50th Street Oklahoma City, OK 73112. Major cross streets are 50th & May.

There is everything and anything you can possibly imagine from furniture, washer & dryers, TVs, electronics, paintings, books, house ware, dishes sets, décor, clothing, shoes, tons of children’s toys, clothing, accessories, beautiful paintings, lots of antiques, etc. Many brand new items as well. There will also be a silent auction with many pricey items and bake sale. It will be a very big event no one will want to miss. 100% of proceeds is going towards bringing Mina home.

Silent auction contains many pricey items to name a few: Williams-Sonoma items, paintings, Carrie Underwood Concert tickets, restaurant gift certificates, gift baskets, etc.

Bake sale- all kinds of tasty treats

Please come out and support the life of this precious child as well as get the word out there for the injustice so many orphans face.

You can help us in this journey through Prayer, spreading the word, financial support, attend our sale event or check out our fundraisers on our blog!


All children deserve to be loved and cared for. Thank you all in advance for your help saving the life of this child as well as for all the many that have so graciously donated items and helped us this far. We are truly grateful!
