~Welcome to the story of our journey to save another Eastern European princess with down syndrome and an older child! In 2010, we traveled half way around the world to adopt a twenty month old (now three years old) precious girl with down syndrome, Gabby. Now, less than two years later, we are on a mission to adopt another precious little girl that is in the same orphanage Gabby was in, Ava. Not only Ava, but yes....one more "Elaine". That means we are trying to adopt two more children!!!! If you are unaware of the situation in most, if not all Eastern European countries, please continue to read. In these countries children with down syndrome and special needs are most often placed in orphanages and if not adopted by the age of four or five (depending on circumstance), they are transferred to institutions where the likely-hood of them ever seeing outside of the institution walls remain slim to none. Many will live very short lives due to lack of appropriate care. Please don't allow this to happen to our sweet Ava! "Elaine" was fortunate enough to escape a very bad institution but nonetheless is in an institution and is an older child whose chances of coming home if we can't adopt her are not good. Having adopted and fully funding ourselves the previous adoption such a short time ago, we will need all of the help we can get to reunite these two angels and bring their big sister home. We utilized all extra resources with our first adoption and so fundraising is essential with this adoption. Whether it be from your prayers, helping to fundraise, buying from fundraisers, donations, etc...your help is much appreciated and is very much needed in order to make this dream a reality. Thank you so much for following our journey~

Below are nine Original Eastern European Paintings donated by our facilitator for us to sale for our adoption costs. Any person donating $250 (this includes shipping costs) to our chip in (preferred) or grant (tax deductible) will receive their choice of one of these paintings! These paintings would make a lovely addition to any home (regardless of Eastern European connections).  Obviously, to anyone who has adopted from Eastern Europe, these paintings would be a treasured gift to have hanging in your home and to be able to pass along to your children in respect to their heritage!  They would make a wonderful gift to a friend or famiy who is adopting or has adopted from Eastern Europe.

Please see the paintings below. If you are interested in a particular painting, please email me at jsgamiddleton@gmail.com and I can give you information on the size or anything else you would like to know.  A couple of them are unframed at this time but can and will be framed prior to receiving the painting if you choose and for no additional costs.

GORGEOUS RIGHT?  One of these (of your choice) will be yours for your donation of $250 (including shipping)!!!!

Also, buying one of these paintings will gain you 5 entries into our ipad giveaway! (This is an additional $20 value)! The ipad giveaway ends on June 15th so there isn't much time left!

Please help us to bring our girls back together and hopefully save an additional child as well!
