Jeremiah & Andrea VanDorsten

Colorado Springs, CO

We are the VanDorstens. We have been married for 15 years. Adoption was always a part of our “Plan A.” It’s a beautiful picture of the gospel, and we are humbled and honored that God would use us to work in the lives of those He loves. We have two biological sons, Isaac and Loyal. We also have a daughter, Mae, who we adopted from China 8 years ago.

Lily

Orphan China

After a three year wait, we were matched with Lily two months ago. She just turned 6 years old. We can’t wait to bring her home! Lily has lived her entire life in an orphanage. Please pray Lily’s heart would be made ready to come into a family. Lily has some medical issues that will need to be addressed once we have her home. We are so thankful for Lily, and for the gift of adoption!

Ms. Mary

Widow Colorado Springs, CO

Mary and her late husband Larry spent decades in ministry all over the U.S. - MA, D.C., TX, MO, & CO. Larry passed away 5 years ago. Before his passing, they heard about two young brothers who were about to enter foster care. Mary took the boys in, and has been raising them by herself for the past 5 years. Mary loves the Lord, and has lived a faith-filled life. Her home is in need of some TLC. She is excited and thankful that God has blessed her with a Both Hands Team to help.

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 an orphan to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
