Arrington's Adoption Fund
Organized by: Jim & Courtney Larson
We reached our goal!! Glory be to God. Thanks to all of you who supported us with your love, encouragement and prayer, through words and donations. The adoption of Arrington will not be hindered by finances. Nor, will we be growing our family in debt. Arrington is a child of God, but she will be starting her new life with a great group of supporters surrounding her family. We are eternally grateful, and humbled by the response we received. We could never have imagined that we would reach our goal a week after we began. And we can't wait to bring Arrington home. May God Bless you all!
p.s. since it was asked: we will leave the fundraiser open for a while longer, but will not be promoting it. so you can come look at sweet Arrington's picture all you want.
A little over a month ago, a friend shared about a girl she knew going up for adoption. Instantly, we felt God lay upon our hearts to pursue the adoption.
About Us: Jim and Courtney married seven years ago. Our first child is the four legged, furry kind. We have two human children; 2 girls, ages six and five. We moved to Washington state three years ago. Shortly after, we found our home church, where we are very active. We always knew that we had a calling to adopt additional children. We just figured it would be many years down the road; God had other plans.
About Arrington: Arrington is four, almost five years old. She spent part of her life with family members until her mother was ready to take her in. She moved to several different states over the past couple years. Her mother can no longer care for her, and has chosen a better life for her daughter, by letting Arrington be adopted. Arrington has special needs, which limits her development. But, she has a very tender heart, which desires a loving, caring family. She is being cared for in a temporary home.
We are trying to get custody of her as quick as we can, to bring stability to her young life, and to keep her out of the state system. Due to the urgent nature of this situation, we are unable to afford the costs associated with adoption, such as attorney, filing, and home study fees. This is where, you come in! Any amount you give, will go directly towards Arrington's Adoption Fund. We appreciate all of your help. Arrington will truly be a child of our community when we all pitch in to give her a loving, stable home.
