My wife and I were eating lunch for the second time with Tony and Cary Rosetta. Our last meeting was several months ago and we ate at my favorite restaraunt in town – Saza’s! This time the Rosettas picked and we met at Dreamland – not my favorite, but still a delicious treat.
At our last meeting the Rosetta’s poured out their hearts to us about their desire to adopt. We told them of our experience adopting our first son and tried to answer as many questions as they had about the adoption process.
This lunch meeting was a little different – not only because of the BBQ. Tony’s contagious smile glowed even brighter as he and Cary joyfully talked about their decision to begin the adoption process from Hungary. What makes it even sweeter is their desire to adopt a sibling group.
One of the big question marks with any international adoption is the cost. For an adoption from Hungary, the total cost is a little over $30,000. Tony and Cary are in the same boat as most folks – they just don’t have that kind of spare cash laying around. But they aren’t letting that stop them.
I don’t remember where I heard this, but I think it’s worth repeating: “God owns the cattle on a thousand hill. All he needs to do is sell some.”
Tony and Cary are putting on a fundraising that I would love for you to be a part of. Maybe your not called to care for orphans by personally adopting children. But, maybe you are called to financially support others who are.
The Rosetta’s have booked Taylor Mason, a Christian Comedian and Ventriloquist to come to Dothan on November 18 at 6:00 PM at Harvest Church on Fortner Street. Tickets will go on sale probably the first of September.
Keep in the loop through their blog, The Rosetta’s Adoption.
