New Week New Family, The Calders!

Hey gang,
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your families and if you're waiting to meet your little one I hope your heart was full with anticipation! Meet this week's new family, The Calders !

so far you have blessed this family with $735!

They've just received their referral from Ethiopia and are expecting a court date soon! Here's a little note form mom to help you get to know them a little better...

"Adopting is something that Jason and I had talked about even before we were married. We have been active with a Christian rescue mission (City Union Mission) for over a decade working with children from the urban core in Kansas City. In working with countless children that come from such a place of need, many of them being foster kids, God put in us the desire to open our home to a child in need. This plan always seemed very far off, because we had our own young children at home, but this past summer God spoke to both of our hearts and let us know that the time was not later, it was NOW.  We had always planned on fostering to adopt when the time came, but just as we were shocked that God was leading us to adopt now, we were just as shocked to feel Him leading us toward international adoption. Something that had never even been on our radar, that had never been part of "our" plan. We are so excited about bringing another child into our home. It continually amazes us how this process of adoption is a mirror of how we have been adopted into God's family. We can't help but be excited about living that out and using this opportunity to share our faith with others."

Awesome right?! So go ahead and give your dollar and share their story! Let's help this family with the last leg of their journey! 

*we are still partnering with Pure Charity, but allowed our families who had already been selected to be featured, to choose if they wanted to use Pure Charity or not, June 1st all funds will be going through Pure Charity.*


  1. Are we no longer giving through Pure Charity?

    1. Maloney, yes we most definitely are! But we allowed our families who had already been selected before the partnership began to choose if they wanted to use Pure Charity or not (this is only for the month of May) beginning in June all families will be going through Pure Charity :) Thanks for asking!

  2. I have chills of excitement for you and your daughter that will soon be joining you. Thanks for answering God's call to care for the poor and needy. Sending big prayers for a quick and easy union. xoxo
