Here is another way that heart.hope.justice gets to support families who are loving orphans!
I’ve known Aaron Tant for about ten years (and his wonderful family). I met Lisa when they moved to Louisville and I got to know them when we were all attending Sojourn Church there.
Here is a brief synopsis of their story:
Aaron and I have been married for 9 years this July and we have two children, Elias, who is almost 7, and Sophia, who is 4. We have always had a heart for children with special needs and we desired to one day adopt a child with special needs. A few weeks ago a friend who is a social worker made us aware of a child who will soon be available for adoption. In order to be consider to be this child’s adoptive parents, we must become licensed foster parents in our state and we must get our home ready for the required home study. The biggest priority is remodeling the basement. Currently we have a guest room on our main floor which will need to become this child’s room. That means that our basement, that is partially finished but not a very pleasant place, needs to be remodeled into a functioning guest space. We would also like to open up our kitchen to accommodate more people. Another large purchase we will need to make is a mini-van. We are currently working to raise money to cover the costs. Our goal is to raise enough money to purchase an appropriate vehicle and do the necessary renovations in our home. Then if there is any money left over we will use that money to pay down our debt. We want to be the best stewards of our resources so that we can best care for our children, and we feel that getting rid of our debt is one way to do that.
You can support them by heading over to the heart.hope.justice page and taking a look at the print and then sending me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me what color cardstock you want your print in. The ink will be black, but I can vary the cardstock color. The prints are 5.7 and 16$ 10$ of every sale will go directly to the Tant family and the rest will go to printing, shipping, and supply cost. I make nothing.
