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!

Joel needs a family!!

Here is a little boy I have absolutely loved and have been praying for God to send a family for him. If he was in the same orphanage with Mina or close~ I'd be bringing him home too :) unfortunately he lives no where near so please pray with me that a family finds precious Joel. 

Joel (31)

BOY, born February 9, 2009

Joel is one of our youngest children waiting, with seemingly only physical challenges. Joel was born with a cleft palate. At 1 he is able to stand on his own and is close to walking. He is at a great age to blend into a loving family setting.
