Meet Our Adopted Syrian Refugee Family

I’m excited to share with all of you that we have adopted a Syrian refugee family through Heart4Refugees here locally in San Diego. Watching the horrific and heartbreaking news and feeling so helpless I prayed that somehow our family could help. When we heard about this local organization we knew it was our calling.  Watching the millions of refugees that were forced to flee their homes and countries we couldn’t sit back, we had to do something!
