ABRAHAM for the Bailey family — SC
This little sweetheart is “Abraham” and he is one of God’s masterpieces! He has spent his whole life in an orphanage in Eastern Europe, waiting for his family. Tragically, children with special needs in Eastern Europe can be transferred to an adult mental institution at an early age, so “Abraham” really needs a family who will love him, care for him, and be blessed by him.
The Baileys were joined in Holy Matrimony in 2003, and welcomed their first two biological children in 2004 and 2007. Then, in 2009, right around the time that “Abraham” was born halfway around the world, the Baileys felt God calling them to expand their family through adoption. They had just welcomed their third biological child and due to other circumstances at the time, they could not actively pursue adoption. They prayed to discern the “when” of God’s call to adopt and eagerly awaited the day that they would be able to take more active steps to expand their family through adoption. The family was blessed with the arrival of their fourth biological child in 2012, and after much prayerful discernment (and more than one push of divine providence), the Baileys were able to start the process to adopt “Abraham” in June 2013. They feel immensely blessed and humbled to have been chosen by God to be “Abraham’s” family and cannot wait to hold their precious boy in their arms.
The Baileys can’t adequately express how much they appreciate any prayers for “Abraham” as he waits in the orphanage, and for their adoption process to go smoothly. And can you spare a donation of even a few dollars to help make this family’s dream a reality and give this little boy a chance to know the love of a Daddy, Mommy, brothers, and a sister? Each and every donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated!
“And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.” ~Matthew 18:5
