Organized by: Amie Bushnell

As so many of you know, our beautiful daughter Genesis, was adopted from Guatemala in 2005. Just before leaving the country we found out she had a twin brother that remained with the birth family. After years of trying, we were able to make contact with Genesis' birth family, and even meet some of them, including her twin Brother Nery! We learned then that Nery had not grown like Genesis had. He is VERY small and had some motor delays early on, and still has some medical concerns. Thanks to the dedication of friends who serve in Guatemala, we have been fully informed of the severity of the situation. The family has very little to call their own, including food. And their diet is the main way in which to keep the children healthy and growing, especially Nery! Our hope is to raise the necessary funds to provide long term food resources, such as hens and other small animals, as well as food, vitamins and dietary supplements to the whole family. There are six children living at home at present. They have at times, taken to collecting edible wild plants nearby the home, as nothing else was available. We want to provide for all of the children. But Nery especially needs the nutrition and medical treatment so he can grow to be as strong as his twin sister. We hope and pray that our help, will give him and the other children a leg up their future, which can be very challenging in Guatemala. Please, if you feel led, help us and our friends is Guatemala bring the much needed basics to a family that has become a part of our family, a family that gave us the most precious gift of our daughter. Thanks to you all!!~ The BushnellFamily
