Our "Son" for the Summer
We have officially put on hold and begun the application process to bring Davids (yes, it's Davids with an -s) to our home for five weeks this summer from Latvia.
Davids is 15, but is the size of an 11 year old. He is described as bright, creative, thoughtful, and funny. He plays beautifully with young children, dreams of being a pilot, has read all of the Harry Potter books, enjoys soccer and swimming, and much more!
As I was emailing a few concerns and questions about hosting to the director of the program (we're going to be in Florida when it's time for their departure and I didn't know if we could still host and work that out), I gave her a list of five kids we were thinking/praying about possibly hosting and asked if any were spoken for or if she knew if one was a good fit for us. She said that when she saw Davids name on our list her "heart lept" because he was one of her favorites and she had really hoped he'd have the opportunity to come to America. I knew God had answered my question of "who." And thought travel isn't completely worked out, I know He will also answer the question of "how."
Please pray for Davids and for our family through this time. That we can prepare and be the best example of God's love to him that we possibly can. Also, please prayerfully consider supporting us. We would love your support prayerfully and will need financial support as well.
We can't wait to share our home with Davids, to hang out with him and teach him and learn from him. What an experience for us all!
