Look who has a family!!

February 19th, 2015





An experienced, loving couple has said, “Yes, God!” to adding precious Brandon to their family.  It looks like his new parents, Doug and Jackie Thornton, will be coming for him sooner than we could have imagined, because they are already well into the adoption process for little Reed.

Doug and Jackie, you are an answer to many prayers! What a gift these two little boys will be to you!

Friends, be watching for some upcoming matching grant opportunities!  Be ready to give generously to help bring Brandon home, and the rest of the children, too, as God sends families to them.


And keep on spreading the word and praying for families to come forward for the other children!


Little Owen had a family, but was recently re-listed for adoption.  Owen’s family, where are you??  Owen is a good-natured, interactive little boy with a mild medical condition that’s kept under control with medication.  He has been available for so long, and needs his own loving family to take him home from Pleven!

Please contact Shelley Bedford at shele337@gmail.com with serious inquiries about adopting Owen.

Mikah!   I’ve been watching him grow up since that day four years ago when Sasha Bliss took a photo of him lying in his bed on the top floor of Pleven.   He was only eight years old then, and is now twelve.  Four more years of waiting!  Mikah’s family, please don’t wait any longer.  Say “Yes!”  He is so worth it!

Please email Shelley Bedford if you are seriously interested in adopting Mikah, at shele337@gmail.com.

Precious Tiya.  I can hardly wait to see a family gently scoop her up into their arms and hearts as Penny’s family did for Penny, Brandi’s family did for Brandi, and Ana’s family did for Ana.  Tiya’s family, I am praying diligently for you to come forward!

Please contact Shelley Bedford for more information about adopting this tiny girl into your family.  shele337@gmail.com

    What a beautiful thing for Brandon. He has, from the first time I saw him, reminded us SOOO much of Krassi, and I’m so glad they weren’t afraid to take him on in addition to the other little boy they’re adopting!

  6. Yeah, I’m so very happy for Brandon!
