The Spangler family is raising money to adopt a little girl from Ethiopia. All funds will be used for the cost of the two trips to Ethiopia.

Our family is on a journey to adopt a 2-4 year old girl from Ethiopia. God has spoke to us and we have stepped out in faith that the great financial responsibility will be provided. I am 35 and have three wonderful children (14, 13, & 8). Chessie and I married a little over a year ago and we took in my little brother (17) to help him finish his high school work and send him off to college. Due to the economy, Chessie lost her Special Education teaching job over a year ago and has not been able to find a new teaching job yet. Regardless of her job situation, we obeyed God, we stepped out in faith, and are certain that the financial need for the adoption will be met.

Chessie always had a desire to adopt internationally. We want to share our home and our love with one of God's beautiful children. We are trying to shoulder the many different costs associated with an international adoption on our own, but we are seeking help with our two trips to Ethiopia to bring our little girl home. The estimated cost of the two trips is around $14,000. The total estimated cost of the adoption is $28,000 - $38,000. We are doing everything we can to make this happen and are praying that Chessie will find a teaching job soon. Any help would be appreciated.
