Pray for Dzintars… {Family and Love – My Dream for Every Child to Have}

One of my New Horizons friends hosted a 14 year old boy Dzintars this summer. We got to know each other through the New Horizons for Children board–and it was amazing to see how this kid responded to family and their love. HE IS AMAZING!

Dzintars truly THRIVED with Maijian crew this summer–and it was so much fun to read Stacey’s updates each day. You can catch up on their summer on their family blog HERE.

Stacey and D…

Stacey’s family is advocating to find a family for him! Here’s what Stacey shares about this sweet boy…

Dzintars, age 14 (will be 15 in October), would do well in any family. He bonds easily and is desperate for a family to call his own! He’s got a stellar personality and is up for anything! He’s happy to try new things or experience new things, he’s brave, he’s kind, he’s SOOOO funny and easy going. It has been a joy to have him in our home. He’s eager to learn English and gets along well with our two young children (ages 4 and 2) as well as kids his age that he’s met while here. He desires to learn to swim and has worked diligently in his swim lessons to accomplish his goal. He likes America very much and has expressed on numerous occasions that he desires to stay here. I cannot say enough good things about this child!!! He loves all sports, especially baseball and soccer. He’s kind to animals (but allergic to cats), helpful around the house and inquistive about how things work. He’s lived in an orphanage nearly his entire life and yet is the most wonderful teenager I’ve ever met! His one dream in life is to have a family, can you help make that dream come true??? A matching grant is available for home study approved families. I’ve blogged nearly daily since he arrived, if you’d like to read more about this loving boy click here or contact New Horizons for Children at 678-574-4677 for more information about making Dzintars a part of your family!!

If you know a family that might be a good fit for D or if you are willing to help us advocate for D–PLEASE feel free to share this! He is one cool kid and we would all LOVE to see D find a family!!!

I shared your post on my blog. My readership is small, but who knows who might be the right person. Thank you advocating for this young man. Blessings.

Stacy, My husband and I have read everything you’ve posted about Dzintars and are very interested in learning more about him. We live in California and are just starting the adoption process. Any info you can give us to lead us in the right direction to get more information in possibly adopting him we would so appreciate. We will stand beside you in praying for him. Also, could you please tell me where he is located right now?

Stacy, One more thing, I noticed on the web site for New Horizon that they require an 18 year age gap, well my husband and I are 31 which would be 17 years older then Dzintars. Do you know if it’s a tricked policy or if there is a little leeway?
