Jay & Andrea Rigdon

November 4, 2023 | Cleveland, TN
We are the Rigdon Family from Cleveland, Tennessee!  We have been involved with orphan hosting for over 6 years, both as volunteers and as a host family. Through hosting we have adopted our oldest son when he was 14 and now are in the process of bringing home our 12 year old host son from the summer of 2022.  We have always felt called to older child adoption.  As a family we have committed to loving adopted children as our own and to help them find their voice, build their confidence and help them find healing!  Most of all we know God has called us to this role in the lives of these children!


Orphan | Colombia

We are adopting 12 year old "J" from Colombia. He was born in the orphanage and is in desperate need of a family to provide the love and care he has gone without. We have received our formal referral letter and are now awaiting travel dates.

Widow | Tennessee

The widow we are helping is Olga. She and her husband Tim were married over twenty years when he was called home to Jesus at the young age of 42 years old. Olga is now here raising their eight children including their three adoptive children from Ukraine. We are hoping to work on the outside property of Olga's house that is in need of maintenance.

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

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?
