“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
- John 14:18
Today is the first day of National Adoption Month! We can’t think of a better way to kick off the month than to celebrate James’s adoption! James was part of our advocacy program for several years. He has Apert Syndrome, which is a congenital disorder characterized by malformations of the skull, face, hands and feet. Due to this, it took many years for James to find a family. We are grateful that many people around the world prayed and advocated for him. Because of your efforts, James now has a family!
We are thrilled to announce that James arrived home with his mom this past Friday! James’s mom and brother have fallen in love with him, and it is clear that God placed him in the perfect family. Through generous donors, Connected Hearts was blessed to be able to provide the remaining funds needed to help bring James home.
Below is what James’s mom Amie wrote about adopting him.
“James and I have been home since Friday night, and he is doing amazing! He is attaching well and is the sweetest, most precious little boy ever! Our family needed him just as much as he needed us….
He’s adjusting so well and loves to play and learn and eat. He also LOVES singing! We are always singing songs together which is helping him learn English quickly. Some of his favorites are Jesus Loves Me, ABC’s, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, and some others we made up. I can’t even express how thankful I am that God chose me to be his mama. He brings so much joy to our family! I am so thankful for Connected Hearts Ministry in helping me bring him home!”
