Bringing children home

About eight years ago, a good friend of mine knew a great Catholic family that was in the process of adopting a child with special-needs from abroad. They were a solid family who would have no problem financially raising this child. But there was a problem: they were about $2,000 short of the needed funds to complete the adoption. If they did not come up with that money, and fast, the adoption would fall through. This child might never be loved by a family and received into the Catholic Church. So he quickly found a way to raise the $2,000 and donated it to the family. That child has been thriving in his family ever since.
But that got my friend thinking: how often does such an adoption not take place? So he and I and our wives started talking and thus was born Little Flowers Foundation , which exists to assist Catholic families with that final amount they need to complete their adoptions. Since its inception, LFF has helped over 40 children be brought into Catholic homes, where they have been loved and have received the saving sacraments of the Church.
But to continue to do this Little Flowers needs money. We only fund-raise twice a year, and we just sent out our latest fund-raising letter, which you can read here . We have many grant applications we would love to fulfill, but we can only do so if we receive enough money through donations. If you are interested in helping bring children home both physically and spiritually, please donate now . Any amount is helpful and we especially appreciate recurring donations, which can be easily set up via this link . LFF is a 501c(3) organization, so all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Also know that LFF is all volunteer-run, so over 97% of all donations go directly to Catholic families.
Thank you for your support!
