Surgery for Abraham: Abraham is a young boy who lives in Korah, Ethiopia (the trash dump community). He has Down Syndrome and is in need of life saving heart surgery. We have had three or four American physicians agree to do the surgery for free but all of their hospitals have denied his case. The last trail that we have followed is having the surgery done by a US physician (Dr. Liske) in Kenya. At time it has seemed that this was never going to happen….but God. : ) Abraham has an appointment in Kenya with Dr. Liske on June 3rd. He has a PDA and a VSD. They want to repair the PDA first and the hope is that it will decrease his risk enough to do the VSD in November. As is always the case, it’s coming down to money. We need $6,500.00 to make this first visit happen for he and his mother. Read More HERE
WE MET THIS NEED!!!!
Urgent Need for the Lannings — summer 2013:
The Lanning family story started 14 years ago, when Jonathan and Carissa were married. After having their first daughter, Jonathan enlisted in the USAF. In her spare time as a USAF wife and stay-at-home mom, Carissa began to research adoption and advocate for orphans. The more she learned about the plight of the orphans with special needs the more her heart beat to adopt. Three more girls and several moves between their home state of Kansas and Texas later, the Lannings finally feel they are being called to be more for an orphan than an advocate, they want to welcome one into their family.
The adoption process is going VERY quickly for the Lanning family! They started from scratch at the end of February and their dossier has already been SENT to their child’s country! CAN YOU PLEASE SUPPORT THIS FAMILY WITH A GIFT???
We are the Wiederholt family. We have 4 boys ages 9,6,6,&3. Three by birth and one by adoption. Abiti joined our family from Ethiopia in 2011. This year we felt the call to start the adoption process again to adopt a sibling set from Africa. We had our OWN plan of what this would look like and the pace we wanted to go. But, God had another plan. We recently heard about a sibling set in Uganda that need a family — and quick! The young girl is 12 years old and her younger brother is 7. Both are HIV positive but the boy’s health has taken a turn for the worse because he is not responding to any of the ARVs (HIV medications) that they have available in Uganda. The doctor said there is nothing else he can do. J’s health is failing and we need to get him home to us NOW. My husband and I didn’t know all of this would happen SO FAST: Adopting a teen daughter, adopting out of birth order, adopting a very sick boy, coming up with 25K……But, we know God has called us to be J&J’s parents. And we know God has their hands until we can get them home. Because this process went so quickly we need help fundraising the needed funds. We thought we had many, many months to come up with all the funds and now we need it very quickly. We are so thankful and humbled by the support of Project Hopeful and the adoption community. The Need: $25,000
Grace is an HIV+ 17 year old orphan. After her parents passed, the relatives she lived with treated her badly. A good samaritan widow saw how she was being treated and took her in. The widow is also HIV+ and cares for other children. Grace is very sick and her medical needs are severe so she has been transferred to Mulago Hospital for extended care. Would you prayerfully consider donating to her medical care?

Noreen — Spring/Summer 2013
This is Noreen and her children, ages 8, 10 & 14. Noreen is extremely ill and desperately needs medical care. Her husband has abandoned her and her children. Her relatives are abusive and continually lock her out of the “shack” she’s been living in. She is in need of housing, medication and a nebulator. Friends in Uganda are working with Mildmay in Uganda to arrange for care and have rented a home for Noreen.
We’ve found two HOPE + sisters for Noreen but because her needs are so desperate, we are looking for people to make general donations to Noreen’s care as well. All donations are tax deductible through Project HOPEFUL. Any amount helps! So far, we have raised $1800 toward Noreen’s care. THANK YOU!
