In April, we
served the Jameo family in Uganda as a form of "orphan prevention."
Their father passed away, and their widowed mother struggles with
providing for the children. The daughter, Bashira, who was under medical
care for hydrocephalus at the CURE Hospital in Uganda, unexpectedly
passed away last month. She was nine years old. We covered the hospital
bill that her mom was unable to pay, along with the funeral expenses for
Bashira. We pray that lifting those financial burdens will help
Bashira's loving mama, and her siblings, as they mourn the tremendous
loss in their lives. We are still working on plans to serve them going
forward with education and more permanent housing. We will keep you posted and please pray for this family.

Meet our "Say Yes" grant family #8 of 2021 - the Ott family!
Julie informed Matt on their first date that she would love to have adoption as part of how a future family was grown. Matt had agreed that he had a heart to adopt as well. After marriage, they were blessed with three biological children - Amelia, Eliza, and John. They say, “Though we both knew we wanted to adopt, we didn’t expect the excitement or peace we would have about the process of growing our family through the adoption of a child with special needs until Down Syndrome came into our hearts.” Both Julie and Matt had been touched by children with special needs throughout their lives and this need felt like such a natural fit for their family. The Otts spent time reading books to their children about Down syndrome to prepare them for their new brother, and it's clear - from this photo - that their mission was accomplished! Little Timothy James was born five weeks early, on February 27th, and after two weeks in the hospital, he is now home with his forever family!

Two months have passed since we landed back home in North Carolina, and every day her little smile melts my heart with so much joy. Every day I look at her and I see nothing but God's love for us. This little sweetness is such a breath of fresh air. Just take a moment to look into those eyes...
