Help Bring Dariya Home

Before I tell you a bit about Dariya, I would like to tell you just a little bit about one amazing family. The Cannons were one of the first families we met at Kaw Prairie Community Church, when we began attending there last year. They are truly warm and welcoming people who absolutely adore their children! The love they have for God and their family pours out from them.

Rochelle and Jason have a son, Aidan and a daughter, Alayna, who was born with Down Syndrome. It was through Alayna, that their eyes were opened to the beauty of Down Syndrome. I have met a few families that have children with Down Syndrome, and I can say that each child is so sweet, and full of joy and will truly melt your heart.

It was recently when Rochelle and Jason decided to answer God's call for them to add to their family, and adopt Dariya. They are in the beginning stages of adopting Dariya from an orphanage in Eastern Europe.

It was through their blog where I learned that children in Eastern Europe that are born with Down Syndrome often end up in an orphanage. The sad part of the story is that if they are not adopted by the age of 4 or 5, they are sent to live in an institution for the remainder of their lives.

Please help the Cannon's bring Dariya home to a family that has already fallen in love with her. You can click here to follow their blog and give a donation to help offset the cost of the adoption....estimates of about $25,000 to bring her home.

You can also help by praying for them as they go through the adoption process. Please share their story with everyone you know, and help them bring their daughter home.
