May 18, 2024 | Chadron, NE

Ruben and Kayla Valdez have been married 6 years and have always known adoption would be part of their life story. After walking through infertility and many months of grief, they knew it was time to pursue what God had laid on their hearts many years before. Ruben and Kayla are working with Flourish Adoption Ministries and expectantly awaiting a match with an expectant mother. The total cost to bring their baby home is $38,000.

Flourish Adoption Ministries works with crisis pregnancy centers to help expectant mothers place their child with hopeful adoptive families. After spending the last year on the waitlist with the agency, the Valdezes will transition to active status and hopefully match with an expectant mother in the next two months.

Widow | Nebraska

Donna and her husband Tom had been married for 61 years when he went home to be with the Lord 2 years ago. Together they served faithfully in the church where the Valdezes attended in college and now pastor. Donna's home is in need of some tender love and care. We are excited to love on Donna and honor her by serving her through this service project.
