I adopted my son Eli from the Szechuan province in China at 17 months old. He is diagnosed with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. Being a single parent I have been able to rely on the support of my pastors and church family at Abounding Love Christian Fellowship. My church family has helped tremendously through fundraising, donations and most of all through prayer. They even threw me a baby shower as he was my first child. As a result of these efforts my church family is invested in Eli and very attached to him. I am now in the process of adopting a little girl with the same diagnosis as my son. Again, my church family, Justice for Orphans and Sandra Flach is beside me to offer support while I meet my training requirements and fundraising to bring her home. I am blessed to have the support of this terrific family of God to help raise and teach my children about God's love.
