JADA for the Stickley family — MD
Tina Stickley considers herself to be the most blessed mom in the world. She is the single mom to two wonderful daughters from a 15 year marriage, Mary who is 22 and Annie who is 14. Tina had always wanted to adopt, but felt that it was totally impossible after being branded with the big D (divorce!). Well, God had other plans and in a way that only our God can orchestrate, she was able to adopt a precious little boy from Russia, Max. He has Down Syndrome and was adopted with the help of Reece’s Rainbow. He came home in March 2011 and is now 5 years old. Tina has been ready to adopt again for some time and after an adventure through several possibilities that didn’t pan out, Tina was sent a video of Jada. Tina and Annie watched the video, to which Annie immediately responded “that’s my sister…we have to go get her.” So, they are now in a race against the clock to get the paperwork and funds to rescue her before she ages out in February 2014.
They would love your help in any way on this journey to bring Jada — soon to be known as Ava — home!
