Eastern Europe Bound

Meet "Caius"

Read more about our story here.

Many years ago, when researching my ancestry, I was delightfully surprised to find that I came from a long line of Eastern European roots, so when we found little "Caius" on the Reeces Rainbow Ministry website, that he was from Eastern Europe was a bonus!
This little fellow has some very special qualities which make him unique and in our eyes amazing.  I can't tell you how much we have fallen in love with him already.  And since we had already completed much of what we needed from our previous adoption attempts, we were well ahead of the game from the get-go.

We already have an agency approved home study, and much of our dossier is on its way back from the State Office having been apostilled.  Our I600a is with USCIS as of today and we now await an appointment for fingerprinting.  Next week we should have the rest of our papers sent to the State Office for apostille and then we'll send them off with the next individual headed in-country. 

If you understood any of that, because you've completed or are in the middle of an international adoption, you realize that this is going very fast.  Inasmuch our fund raising is going into overdrive now.  We have some resources as you can see from the fund raising thermometer to the right of this post, but not as much as we need to complete this process. 

If you would like to help us bring this little one home, please click here or on the link under his picture, read our story and then click the "Donate" button.  For my international friends and readers, PayPal will convert your currency to USD for us.  For those of you in the US, you can click here if you prefer to send a check and it will give you the address.  This will go to our Family Sponsorship Program and be used to bring Caius home.  Mailing, rather than using PayPal, will save the 3% PayPal fees. 

Caius had surgery on his little feet this morning.  We've not heard how that went but we are sure that he is in good hands.  He'll be in casts for a bit, but this will help his feet straighten out. 

Please pray with us for favor with all those in authority so that we can bring him home as quickly as possible, but in God's timing.  The sooner he is home, the sooner he will begin to receive the therapy he needs. 

He's a beautiful boy, and we are so excited about making him a part of our family.
