IANTO, LANE and EMMETT for the Rowe family — NC
The Rowe family has decided to adopt Emmett before he ages out this March and he said yes! They are returning for court on the 24th then returning home to continue settling in the two newest boys so this will mean two more trips back. They are in need of more funds to complete this adoption with an estimated $11000 necessary for travel and paperwork. They greatly appreciate every donation.
Tim and Janice have been married for 18 years and have ten children, six through the blessing of adoption. They always knew that they wanted to adopt and said from the beginning that they wanted the children that others weren’t clamoring for- the older children or the ones with special needs. After adopting two younger special needs kids from Eastern Europe last May and then returning for two teenagers this past October, they have decided to go back again for Ianto- another teen they got to spend a lot of time with while there adopting in the Fall. During that time Ianto hung out with them at every visit playing soccer, doing crafts, and of course playing games on the iPad As a result, Tim and Janice got to know him well and learned about his desire for a family. He wants to be adopted so badly! The Rowes want nothing more then to be that family and give him the love, support and the security he deserves. He is such a sweet and fun loving boy, and at almost 15 his time is running out. After visiting EE twice this last year, the Rowes know all too well what happens to these kids once they age out.
Ianto deserves so much more than a life of uncertainty on the streets. But Tim and Janice are definitely going to need some help in order to get their son home where he belongs. After completing those two adoptions of four children just this past year, their resources to put towards this adoption are very limited. Anything you can contribute to help them in their fundraising efforts will be so appreciated! They are so grateful for the help they received in the past and know that yet again, they cannot complete this adoption alone. They thank you in advance for your support and your prayers, both for Ianto while he waits and for them during their adoption process. They are hoping they can get everything in place to bring him home to his new family quickly!
