New Week: Welcome the Brandt Family

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Welcome our featured family of the week - the Brandt family! Heather and Alan Brandt have two children,  Colin (6), who was adopted from Russia in 2008, and Dara (2), who was adopted domestically in 2011. After hosting  a brother and sister from Latvia last year at Christmas, they began the process to make them part of their forever family.  You can follow the Brandts’ adoption journey on their blog.

How You Can Help

1. PRAY for the Brandts' adoption of their son and daughter.
2. SHARE their video via Twitter, Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. Please help us spread the word!  The Brandts are traveling this week for their first of three trips to Latvia to adopt their son and daughter! We want to help them raise the money to give these kids a forever family and a home!

3. GIVE $1 (or more if you feel led.) The Brandts have a matching grant! Every dollar you give will be doubled! There are two ways to give tax deductible gifts towards the Brandts' matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans (up to $3,000 total will be matched) and 100% (minus processing fees will be given towards their adoption expenses).

Update: We have raised $69 to help the Brandts bring home their son and daughter!
