Family raising money to adopt in Uganda

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

Abigail and Madelyn Adams may get two baby brothers if their parents can raise tens of thousands of dollars.

And boy, are they trying.

Their mom, Julie Adams, has always wanted to adopt. But their dad, Nathan, has been hesitant because of the cost. Recently, after coming to grips with how horrendously millions of orphans live in third-world countries, Nathan decided they should start the adoption process.   

"To have the opportunity to bless some young children with some of the same blessings that we have been provided, not just as Americans, but our family specifically, why wouldn't you?" Nathan said.

The couple hopes to adopt the two kids from Uganda, where there are two and a half million orphans. But money, at least for the moment, stands in their way.

It would cost about $40,000.

So the Adams family is raising funds. With friends, family and fellow church members, they are making little giraffe blankets out of multi-colored fabric.

$10, you can get two. You keep one. The other goes to Uganda, where they will give it to an orphan.
