Supporting One Widow Through the Adoption Process

“I made up my mind I was going to take the kids,” Jean said. “And I was going to do my best, whatever I could for them.”

Jean and her three children.

Jean, a Navajo widow, is trying to adopt her three grandchildren, Ilias, Daniella and Ivas.

Jean’s heart was heavy. After a car accident left her injured and recovering at home, she became aware that her grandchildren were being abused. After much prayer, she knew she had to get the kids out of the house—even though it would tear apart her relationship with her daughter. Jean began to file papers for custody, with an end goal of adoption.

New Life Christian Assembly stepped in to help their sister in Christ. They gave clothes to the kids, purchased groceries, provided a home close to the church and are counseling Jean through the adoption process.

“The church is walking me through it,” Jean said. “And Jesus is helping me every step of the way.”

We love Jean’s sacrificial spirit. One of the ways Family Christian cares for orphans and vulnerable children is by helping them find forever families through adoption, and we desire to lift up Jean through this long journey.
