Weitzman Adoption

Lifesong for Orphans

How exciting to travel the journey of adoption along with Josh and Jamie Weitzman and their family.  A couple of Sundays ago we got to hear a little bit about the way in which God has been leading in this whole process.  What an amazing opportunity we have as a congregation to come alongside this family in helping to care for one of God’s precious children who is in need of a family.  Here is an excerpt of an email Jamie sent me in response to my questions about how we as a church can specifically support them financially.  I encourage you to let the Lord lead you in how you might be able to help out.  

“Our hope is that people will learn that having a child with Down syndrome is wonderful and that there is a need for families to either open up their homes or their wallets to help a child find their “forever family”.  I have a list of things we still need funds for and information about a Christian non-profit organization that provides grants for families hoping to adopt and also allows people to give tax deductible donations to a specific family…

The Organization is:
LifeSong for Orphans  (they do amazing work all for God’s glory, check out their site.)
PO BOX 40 / 202 N. Ford Street
Gridley, IL 61744
preference Weitzman #1674 adoption (people must specify that the money is for our adoption or else it will not come for us!!!)

Things we still need funds for:
Passports-$440
Hong Kong Program Fees-$2000
Immigration Form-$670
Travel-$3000-$5000  we will need to be in Hong Kong 5-7 days.
 
Thanks for allowing us to share this journey with the church…”
