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!

Prayers Needed!

Please Continue to pray for us financially. 

We still need approximately $13,000 to bring Mina home and I've been looking at purchasing plane tickets and they have gone up to $1650/ each so of course that makes our costs and needs financially go up. 

Please pray for us to find an awesome price on plane tickets and for the Lord's provision for us financially.

We will be having another garage sale (which we have tons and tons of stuff, furniture, baby items, etc) July 15-17th.  Click here to see pics from the last sale event to see how much stuff we still have to sale. 

Please mark that on your calander and come check it out if your in the area and pray for a great turnout!

We also have Mina's quilt that we are trying to get filled up so that we can take that to her when we go to get her. Please send a message, prayer or scripture and help us get her quilt squares all filled in so her blanket can be finished and be a symbol of all the love, support, and prayers that got her here! Click Mina's Quilt tab above to see quilt.

Thank you all!!!
