Forever Family for Ed and Zeke
Organized by: Erin Corbett
International adoptions are rough. They take time and money and patience and prayer. Of those four, money is definitely the hardest to come by. And I think it might be part of the reason my boys Ed and Zeke (11 and 8) have been waiting on a forever family for a couple years now. The cost of adopting a child from Haiti is daunting so when there are two brothers looking for a home the cost can seem impossible. But I believe these boys are special. I believe there is a family out there for them. So here it is: this is a fundraiser to help that family. The boys have needs. Zeke has sickle cell anemia; this requires hospitalization a few times a year. But coming to the U.S. could mean a bone marrow transplant and healing for his little body. Ed has some learning disabilities. But coming to the U.S. means access to special education, something out of reach in his home country. Though they have needs, they also have a lot to bring to a family. They are funny and loving and playful and talkative and just awesome.
My hope is that this fundraising page will give a family the courage to start the adoption process. Knowing the many fees are taken care of may lighten the burden enough for someone to take the first step toward getting two beautiful bonus sons. The money goes to an account set aside for the boys and once we find an adoptive family, I will work with them to make sure all funds are sent to the agency handling the boys' adoption. Let's help Ed and Zeke's family bring them home.
