New Week: Welcome the Johnson Family

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! This week on Give1Save1 Europe, we are featuring the Johnson family! Please meet Phillip and Erin Johnson and their children, Wesley, Mariah, and Wyatt. The Johnson will be adopting a sibling group of four brothers from Ukraine! You can follow their adoption journey on their blog.

"We felt the call to adopt shortly after the birth of our second son, and we chased that calling immediately despite not having "enough" money, only being in our 20s, and having 2 very young children. We watched God provide for us time and time again. We never met a mountain that He could not move. After returning from Ukraine in 2010 with our 4 year old daughter, we knew we could never return to "life as normal." How can a person look into the eyes of orphans and not be changed? Yes, our daughter had a family now, but we knew we had to do more. In the summer of 2012 we hosted a 7 year old boy from Ukraine with no intent to adopt him, but For Christmas 2012, we took a huge leap of faith and re-hosted him AND his older brother. God very clearly spoke to us during that time, that these were OUR boys, and we firmly believe that if God has called us to it, He will see us through it. The boys we hosted also have 2 younger brothers. All 4 boys (ages 10, 8, 7, and 2) need to be adopted together." - Erin Johnson

The Johnson created the video below from the pictures they took while hosting the sons! Enjoy!

This week instead of Give1Save1 it is Give1Save4! Could you spare $1 (or more) to help the Johnson family bring home their 4 sons? The Johnson's still need to raise $17,000.
