Nate & Angie Schlesner

Cashton, WI

The Schlesners were able to bring their adopted daughter Sofia (2 ½ years) home in late August 2016, to join in making their, now, family of 6. Their international adoption experience, which took just under a year, was atypical and wonderful in how quickly things moved along! Coming from Kyrgyzstan, a place where Down Syndrome is rejected, Sofia is now experiencing the unconditional love of a family who values her just as she is, which is pretty darn sweet. They are so glad they listened, as they felt God pressing adoption on their hearts.

Sofia

Orphan Kyrgyzstan

While being able to use some loans to bring Sofia home in under a year, the Schlesners are now hoping to be able to reduce some of the debt with this fundraiser. Sofia is doing very well adapting in her new home, but she has also had many medical needs so far too, as many people with Down Syndrome do. However, Sofia is already showing how resilient and special God created her to be, and is blessing everyone she meets.

Ms. Audrey

Widow Cashton, WI

Ms. Audrey lost her husband Willy in 1983. Since that time, she has experienced more loss of family and friends, leaving her with limited support and help close by. Audrey is currently experiencing some troubling health conditions, but she keeps a positive attitude saying “I’ve got 25 more years on this Earth, and I’m going to use up all of them!” She is so excited to be part of this project, and the Schlesners feel honored to be able to bless her!

Our Both Hands Project

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help the Schlesners reduce the debt incurred during Sofia's adoption. Will you sponsor us?
