Faithful Friday - The Nachtmann Family

Several posts coming later this weekend about what Rach and I have been up to lately, but right now I want to tell you about a special family who is working to bring home a treasure of their own!

Chet and Amanda are working very hard to bring home beautiful miss Victoria!

VICTORIA for the Nachtmann family — Hardin, MO

Chet and Amanda met 3 years ago via the internet. When they met they instantly clicked and have been together every moment since. They enjoy going to see all that Missouri has to offer and they also have a menagerie of pets to keep them entertained.  Amanda is a braillist for a living at the local elementary school while Chet works with HUD to provide a housing program for families on disability. Even before they met Chet and Amanda had a heart for missions and adoption.  In 1993, and 1994 Amanda went to Hong Kong/China and Jamaica while Chet has been to Peru and Uganda.  That said, after becoming foster parents recently, Amanda realized she has a real heart for the orphans of Eastern Europe. So when she came across Reece’s rainbow she was hooked!
Since God hasn’t blessed Amanda and Chet with Children yet they decided to pursue adoption.  After the Braille Challenge 2010 (A spelling type bee for blind kids) Chet also felt that it would be ok to adopt children who were blind or with other special needs. Though both Chet and Amanda work in service jobs and they are not sure how they are going to  they have decided to take a leap of faith and trust that God will help with the rest. Please consider giving financially to help with the many adoption expenses as they are civil servants to their community and church.  Blind kids are often the last to be adopted and since Amanda is fluent in Braille and knows all the ins and outs, they feel this beautiful little girl is for them!

Follow the family's adoption journey on their blog at

$440.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

Victoria was one of the very first children I posted about for waiting Wednesday, and now she has a family! Amanda works as a professional braillist, and since Victoria is blind, how perfect is that?!? Both Amanda and Chet have had a heart for missions and adoption, and knew they needed to adopt. As the title of their blog says, soon tehre will be one less!!

Right now the Nachtmann's are having a fundraiser to help raise some of the money for Victoria's ransom. They are giving away a new Nook Tablet and some other great items! 

If you already have a Nook or don't want one, it would make a great birthday gift, or you could donate it to another giveaway! Please go check it out on their blog!!! This is such a worthy cause and Victoria really needs to come home!!

Thank you!!!
