Haura Comes Home




It's taken me awhile to finally sit down and introduce you to one of our newest additions!

She is beyond precious and I am so excited for you to officially meet her.

Her name is,

 Haura

{pronounced HOW - LA}

She came to us through a tremendous loss in her life.

Unable to find someone to care for her she was then referred to our home,

where we then were able to bring her home to us.

Life was fading from her eyes as she grieved the loss of her beloved caregiver.

Haura has several special needs that are still undiagnosed,


She has Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy which effects all of her limbs and

makes her unable to sit up or feed on her own.

So she relies on us for every type of basic need to be taken care of.

Haura loves to be held and cuddled and spoken to.


She especially loves listening to music and enjoys being carried everywhere.

Recently Haura was fitted with her very own wheelchair!! 

And she is finally beginning to enjoy wheelchair rides.

Currently Haura does not have any sponsors.

Would you prayerfully consider being a part of watching 
Haura heal and thrive?

Above all else,

Would you please pray for Haura in the coming months 
as she adjusts to life in our home?

Will you pray that the doctors would have wisdom?

10 Years Old and Just 6 Pounds!!

Just two days before the wedding we welcomed home our newest addition 

and by far our smallest wedding guest!

His name is Samuel and he is beyond precious.

I'm so excited to finally introduce you to this handsome little guy!

We had the Joy of giving him the name Samuel which means:

"God has heard". 

We felt that this meaning was absolutely perfect for our sweet boy.

He came to us suffering from severe malnutrition,
cerebral palsy, neglect and abuse.

His tiny body struggling for survival at 10 years old.

Weighing only 6 pounds...

His legs just the size of my pinky finger...

Please hold up your own pinky...
that's just how big...
see for yourself!!





His body was struggling, his cheeks hollow and his life fading before our eyes.

What an incredible journey and testimony our sweet Samuel has.

God heard his cry and he was rescued him before it was too late..

In just one month of being home with us,

we have found him smiling and he even says "mama"!

Now his little body is weighing 17 pounds!!





It has been such a joy to see him blossom and to see life come into his eyes.

His smile is contagious and he is rarely seen without a smile.


Samuel loves to be held and enjoys spending time outside in the sunshine.

He also loves preschool and his favourite toy is a small car that fits in his hand!



We are so thankful for Samuel and that he is now apart of our Gem family!

4 Years Old & Size 9 Months - Meet Opio



{His tiny legs next to my thumb!}


We are so excited to introduce you to this little guy!

After being admitted in the hospital for several days 

battling a severe infection in his lungs - 

his body so weak and needing oxygen so that he could breath,

we asked many of you to pray for Opio,

and people around the world prayed for healing for our sweet boy!

We are so excited to share with you all,

 that he is now breathing on his own

and it's finally his turn to be officially introduced!

All glory to God!

Introducing our precious,

"Opio"

he is one of our youngest gems at 4 years old,

and his tiny, malnourished body is wearing a size 9 months.

He came to us suffering from severe malnutrition and neglect.

His body was so weak that he couldn't keep any food down.

Such a precious little bundle.





Shortly after coming home to us,

we  had the joy of celebrating his 4th birthday!



Opio has several special needs but he doesn't ever let that stop him!

His body is still so weak and need of healing from the severe

malnourishment.

He also has Hydrocephalus and Cerebral Palsy.

Yet our sweet boy is always smiling!

Opio loves to be cuddled, talked to, held

and he especially loves listening to music!





Opio brings us so much Joy and we are so thankful to have him 

be a part of our 'Gem' family!
