Families Needed

I have decided to partner with the agency that we used for Mylee to help them advocate for their special focus kids. Hand in Hand International Adoptions is a small agency that believes that all children need and deserves a home. They are an excellent Hague accredited agency and the only reason we have not used them again is because we found our boys on another agency's list. So, occasionally I will be adding pictures along with a brief description of each child. If you have any questions please contact Vicki at

Like many kids around the world, these children need families. These are just a small hand full of those who are without families. These are children, who probably don't know what it means to love or be loved. These are children that may not know what it feels like to be completely full or warm. These are children. Children who desperately need a family before it is too late.

Could you be the family for one of these children? If not you, do you know someone who may open their homes and their hearts to one of these children? Please scroll down and really look at all of the children.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or Vicki at Be sure to give Vicki the identifying information in the parenthesis after their descriptions.

Mandi - I just wanted to mention that I know a couple of these children are from Kaleb's orphanage which is excellent!! I'd be curious to find out how many on their list is from his CWI.

Goodness, who can resist? They just all seem to be longing for their momma and daddy....
We are "in" again, and praying for the Lord to show us who our next child (or children!) will be....
Thanks for advocating, Mandi.

I echo what Anita is saying. The first two little girls are from our dd's / Kayleb's CWI. It is a very well funded, well staffed and organized orphanage. Our daughter came to us, well cared for, very well prepared for her adoption and was very well educated as well. They have a large contingent of volunteers that interact with the kids too (from the community!). Our dd's volunteer knew her from the time she was 2 and we still keep in touch. If there are any PAP's who are interested in the CWI, I would be happy to answer any questions theyy may have. Thanks for advocating! We haev our first Skype with Samuel on Sunday and I am getting so excited! :)

Wow... I have a more severe version of Brendon's deformity. I hope he gets the home he wants, and I'm not the only one with this deformity...
