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!

How U Can Help?

Here’s a list of ways you can help save the life of an orphan:

  • Financial Support for other families adopting:  The #1 barrier preventing people from adopting is finances.  If you are able to give please do so that way a family can give a home and love to another orphan desperately needing a family.

  • Get involved. Be a prayer warrior for a child, help find a family for an orphan, help spread the word!

Thank you all so much for helping save Mina's life and giving her a forever home! Thank you for having such a gracious heart to help serve in whatever way the Lord places on your heart. We are truly thankful and couldn't have brought Mina home without all the love, support, and financial help we received!  Mina's life is forever changed not just because of us but because of all of you! We truly couldn't have done it without everyone!Thank you for being a blessing to this child and to our family!  Please keep in mind the many other orphans in the world and do all you can to help change those precious babies lives too!
