Christian Production Company Invites Adoptive Couple for Interview, Then Surprises Them in Amazing Way

What an incredible gift to this family!

Published

When a family makes the decision to adopt a child, they sign up for a lifetime of opening their hearts and homes to precious little (or big) people, and it’s a beautiful reflection of how God adopts us into his own family through his Son.

There are many services to help adoptive parents overcome the social and emotional hurdles that can come with the territory, but financial assistance to help with the massive costs of adoption is hard to come by, often resulting in many families feeling they simply can’t afford to adopt.

When one Carlsbad, California couple felt the pressing burden to adopt children, they received an amazing blessing from a surprising source.

For Lindsay and Major Colin Culkin, no amount was too costly when it came to fulfilling their conviction to adopt. After concluding two years of overseas deployment in China, the Culkins returned home and began the lengthy process of adopting two twin sisters.

“I watched someone that I had worked with adopt and it just really touched my heart,” Lindsay shared in an interview with PureFlix about the decision to adopt. “It was real, it was hard, it was emotional, but it was beautiful and loving and everything in between.”

Although the Culkins officially adopted their daughters and brought them home last summer, they’ve been paying off the expenses associated with the adoption ever since.

That is, until Adopt Together stepped in.

Adopt Together is an adoption crowdfunding project of the Hoping Hearts Foundation. Think GoFundMe for adoption costs. This resource is such a blessing in making adoption more accessible for families, which in turn means more kids finding loving homes.

When the folks over at PureFlix learned of the Culkin family’s situation, lifting their burden became a mission.

The Culkins got the surprise of a lifetime when they thought they were being interviewed by PureFlix to share the story of their adoption journey, but the truth was much, much bigger.

What an incredible gift to this family! PureFlix has made a habit of surprising adoptive parents this way, and it truly is such an incredible way to bless people who have sacrificed so much to give a child a home.

If you believe in the Adopt Together mission, please consider lifting up and supporting families like the Culkins. If you feel called to open your home to precious children but are unsure of how to afford it, Adopt Together can help you on your journey.

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity.

It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego.

In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country.

But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life.

It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out.

Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project.

Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground.

But there’s a catch

A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor.

Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year.

The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job.

Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11.

The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”.

And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
