Immediate Adoption Opportunity in the Northwest Arkansas Area

I got an urgent request from our private attorney, Vaughn Cordes, about another Marshallese adoption opportunity that is available immediately.  I believe the birth is due in August.

This adoption will require someone live reasonably close to Northwest Arkansas (less than 4-5 hours?) because the birth mother really desires an "open adoption", ie. they want to maintain some contact and relationship with the child as they grow up.

For those of you wondering, this doesn't mean the birth mom wants to be "2nd parent" to the child, they just want to maintain contact the child and have kind of an "extended family" type relationship. There is no legal requirement or definition of this relationship. It's just an informal understanding between you and the birth mom.

Help The Moore Folks No Matter Where You Live - Here's How

I received from the following note from a local church that I know does great work in the area and is very trustworthy:

Journey Church in Norman off I-35 and Tecumseh is providing food and shelter for many victims of yesterday's tornado tragedy.  They are in need of boxes, rubbermaid tubs, work gloves, baby wipes, gatorade, water, and easy to eat on the go food items.  If you can help with any of these items or just lend a hand to help there it would be great. Keep all these families in your thoughts and prayers through this tragedy.

Thanks.  Don Rother

You can also give funds through Journey Church:  (look down towards the bottom for giving monetary donations)

I trust Journey Church. You can rest assured your money will be used properly and frugally to help those who have lost so much.  If you want to make sure your giving is administered with great care, give through Journey Church.  I don't attend church there, but I'm very familiar with them and their local reputation.
