The Blooms’ adoption is complete! After completion, they returned to adopt one last child – a young girl who had been neglected and malnourished, and was improving slowly with the help of Maya’s Hope. Yulia is now home with her family!
The Bloom family rescued 4 children from 2 government orphanages/institutions in an Eastern European country from which they have adopted previously.
You can meet the Blooms here. The Blooms were desperate to save their four children. All had been neglected, dare I say even abused in their orphanages/institutions. At least one of their sons was starving to death, alongside living with a potentially terminal illness. The Blooms had an emergency medical plan set up for him when they arrived back in the US, where they will took him straight to the hospital to be treated. Another of their sons had technically aged out of adoption, but due to their submission of important paperwork, they were still able to adopt him.
They did not give up. They were determined to bring all four children home, and they succeeded, plus 1. They were driven to getting the kids home, getting them healthy, and loving them unconditionally, and they are now thriving. They have loving siblings. They have incredible, loving, supportive parents. They have an amazing extended family. They have so much love. Their needs are more than just ‘met’. They more than ‘exist’. These children LIVE. They live, because of the dedication of their parents and family. Some of the newest children were be reunited with old friends they have had a long time. The Blooms have adopted previously from either one or both of the orphanages/institutions where the children resided.
Visibility was one of the biggest fights the Blooms will face, and continues to be a huge hurdle for many pursuing adoption.
They need people to SEE their children, SEE the conditions in which the children are living, SEE how much love and proper care can improve their lives. SEE how medical interventions can improve their quality of life. They need people to SEE what love can do. The Blooms’ 4 sons, who were previously adopted from the same country, are a testament to these things. They thrive in a family. These four children are flourishing, too. *Amos, *Daisy, *Lee, and *Violet needed your help, and they needed it sooner rather than later, and you stepped up.
Please generously toward the cause of adoption however you can, whenever you can. Adoption builds families.
