How you can follow us:
  • You can follow us right here on the blog. We will try to post daily (internet & VPN permitting).
  • You can follow our Facebook page. We will be posting multiple times a day and live streaming as much as we can. How cool is it that we live stream on Facebook now!?
How can you be involved:
  • Please share our posts! The more people who see these kids and are interested in what we are doing the more kids will find families. We need everyone to like and share posts!
  • Think about us and pray for us. This trip is wonderful and fulfilling, but it is also exhausting and there are so many things that need to work together well for us to be able to be effective in what we do.
