Letter of HOPE for C.S. Petitt

      I would like to share with you the journey my family has embarked on.  It is the most important venture we have ever taken part in.  It is A Journey To Save A Life.  Our hopes are, that once you hear about , you w C.S. Petittill want to be a part of this journey as well.  For it is C.S. Petitt  life we are in a race to save. .
      First, let me introduce our family.
Phillip Petitt:  Supervisor remodeling Wal-Mart and Kroger and state jobs, Anne Petitt 39 –Stay at Home mom and teacher for home schooling,  Adam Petitt 12- Loves soccer, acting, reciting anything and everything loves reading, Adam wants to be a pilot and fly for the the Blue Angels, he loves languages and learns them easily, we are all currently learning Russian,  Ryan 9- loves to build any and everything, loves studying about Wars loves World War II, anything military, he is an Artist loves to paint, draw, and create.  Both boys are learning to play piano and is very talented in music.  One day it would be nice to have a family Christian  band like the Gaithers.  Heehee. 
     My family has known God's calling to care for orphans is at the very center of the Gospel for some time.  Throughout this time, doors have opened and closed.  As we have walked through each opened door, October 21, 2010, an opened door led to
C.S. Petitt.  After being introduced to  C.S. Petitt gentle, smiling face, I spent the entire night praying for him, never sleeping, never ceasing, just calling out to God on behalf of this boy. Thru much prayer and wisdom and seeking direction we have been confirmed without a shadow of a doubt that  Cole Shephard will be our son in his new forever home.    And so the Journey began.
     Allow me to introduce you to
C.S. Petitt, we have sent you a family picture as you can see with  C.S. Petittin the middle of it.. Please put on your refrigerator as a reminder to think about us during this time and pray.   C.S. Petitt is a 15 year old orphan from EE.  In Eastern Europe (EE) including Latvia, Ukraine orphans in most cases are forced out of the orphanages at 16 years old.  A lot of times sadly to say no arrangements or preparations are made for these children, they simply must go to make room for the younger children.  Many will go to the sewers to live as there is some warmth there.  6 out of 10 girls will be forced into prostitution, 7 out of 10 boys will turn to a life of drugs or crime to survive.  Just 2 out of 5 of these children will live beyond the age of 23.  Many will commit suicide.  We can easily agree that a two in five chance to survive does not hold much promise when you are the child hoping to be one of those two.   C.S. Petitt unfortunately is in those statistics.  Hoping to be one of the two who will survive.
     This is where you can join us on the
Journey To Save A Life, to save Kolya's life.  Our family must raise $30,000 towards  C.S. Petitt adoption cost.    We realize that this amount is great.  We assure you  C.S. Petitt life is of greater value.  He just needs a chance, someone to believe in him, a family.  We want to be that family and trust we are meant to be.
     Would you please consider becoming a sponsor for 
C.S. Petitt adoption?   C.S. Petitt will turn 16 on March 9, 2011 we have to have all papers at US Embassy in Eastern Europe 30 days before he turns 16 in order to adopt him and claim him Everyday he waits without hope, he takes another step closer to becoming another statistic for Eastern Europe orphans.  Time is running out; please join us in this Journey.
     All donations are tax deductible and will get receipt for taxes.  You can make checks out to Community Church.  In Memo write “Mission A”
     Send checks in the envelope provided or to:  125 Ridgeway Terrace Maysville, GA 30558.
                                   Believing in the Jehovah Jireh,
                                                    Phillip, Anne, Adam, & Ryan  & C.S. Petitt
P.S.  Also we are looking for Frequent flyer miles we have to go to Eastern Europe (EE) 3 times in the coarse of the adoption and Priority points for hotel accommodations.  If you know anyone who has some and wants to donate them or has connections in EE that would be a blessing.  Thanks, The Petitts
