Faithful Friday - The Cooper Family

On this BEAUTIFUL Friday, meet the Cooper family!
Vera, Annika, and Joey!
And the handsome boy they are working to bring home!

OWEN for the Cooper family — Franklin, MA

Never give up on your dreams… Before Vera met Joey, she dreamed of finding the perfect man for her.  Before Joey met Vera, he too dreamed of finding a woman who was everything he wanted and needed.  Then they found each other; their first dream come true.  Both of them  always wanted a house filled with love and laughter and the sounds of children playing, and in 2006, that dream became a reality when  Annika was born; second dream come true!  Joey and Vera wanted to give Annika a sibling close in age, but discovered there were some complications.  However, Vera always had another dream of adopting from Eastern Europe, which is where her family came from.  Years before she met Joey, she had researched International adoption, but didn’t feel that the time was right, although the dream was always in her heart.   After discussing the idea with Joey, Vera immediately began searching for updated information on the process.  That is when she discovered Owen through Reese’s Rainbow, and knew then that he was the reason why she never stopped thinking about adoption!   Owen too has a dream, and the Coopers are going to make it come true – he is their dream as well.  It’s not going to be an easy ride, but there is so much love in this family, and they are all exploding with joy to be called by God to bring this beautiful child home.   Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  They cannot express enough how much your donations and support mean to them,  and to beautiful little Owen who is waiting to join his Mama, Daddy and sister – his family.  Dreams CAN come true, so never give up on them!

$100.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

They are bringing home Owen! Cole's buddy!
Cole and Owen
I posted about Cole's family, the Duval's here, for Faithful Friday, and now it's Owen's turn! Owen's family, like Cole's, is working as hard as they can to get him home, because if the director doesn't know they have families, they will send him off the monastery. Thankfully, Jake and Ashley are there right now, but I think the director already knew. :) Either way, he needs to get home to his family ASAP!!! Please help bring him home!!!

  1. Oh Sarah, thank you SO much for this wonderful post! My eyes welled up as I read it, I hadn't realized you posted this (and it's been CRAZY here the past couple of weeks, I am so behind on my reading).

    The knowledge that there are people rooting for our boy and our family touches my heart in a way that I can't even articulate. We are working hard to pull it all together to bring our son home ASAP, and your support is invaluable to us. It's just so wonderful to know that you care so much!!!

    You are truly an amazing young lady... thank you for all of the love and prayers you have given to these children and families! God bless you and watch over you as you continue to do His work!
