VALERA for the Schultz family — WI

Valera photo fwbutton150.pngWhile at the RR Family Reunion this year I met a little boy who had the ability to draw in a crowd! He was adorable and sweet and had a continual smile on his face! I couldn’t wait to meet the parents of this little firecracker!

I continued to watch him and finally figured out who he “belonged” to. I was shocked to find out he was an orphan being hosted by a RR family for the summer and would be sent back to the orphanage the end of August. He looked about 7 or 8 years old but was actually 12. I had a hard time imagining what his life was like back there. My husband and I were already in process to bring home a little RR sweetie from another country so I never imagined it would even be possible to be his Mama too; I was wrong!

We had to make some phone calls, change homestudy agencies and have a LOT of Faith that fundraising would go well! But WE DO BELIEVE that he is our SON and he will be home soon with the help of our family and friends in real life and in the cyber world! No donation is too small and will mean the world to our SON!
