We are doing a "Puzzle Fundraiser" to raise the necessary funds to bring home Sergiy! We need to raise $25,000 in the next 2 to 3 months and we need your help.
We shopped all around and found a puzzle we all really like called "Old Glory" The neat thing about this puzzle is that it is a photomosaic.. meaning it is a big picture made up of many smaller pictures of things that happen here in the US. It is a perfect example of all the love and lovely things Sergiy will experience here in the US and is also a symbol of the freedom he is receiving by coming to America and his forever Family with us! :)
It has 1000 pieces. For every $10 donated to the Puzzle Fundraiser we will put 1 piece in the puzzle. We will be posting pictures of the progress every so often. When we have enough donations to finish the puzzle we will have raised $10,000 towards Sergiy's Adoption and we will have the finished puzzle posted on our website.
Every $10 donation for a puzzle piece will have the name of the person donating written on the back of the puzzle piece. We will keep the puzzle and he will be able to grow up and see all the names of people who donated to put that puzzle together for him and be a part of
bringing him home to his forever family.
There are a couple of ways that you can donate towards our puzzle fundraiser. First of all you can use the help bring Sergiy home button to make a donation on our blog http://newhornerfamily.blo
Thank you ahead of time if you are able to help us to make this HUGE step in bringing Sergiy home! There is a lot that has to happen to have the funds to bring him home and this is something we cannot do alone.
If you cannot donate at this time please pray for the process to go smoothly and for the needed funds to be raised and paperwork to be completed as quickly as possible. You can also help us by spreading the word about our journey and fundraiser with everyone you know by word of mouth, your blog, email or Facebook.
Remember only $10 helps put a piece of the puzzle together for our son.
Thank you so much for all your prayers, love and support of our journey to bring home our son Sergiy to his forever family!

Sergiy is a 13 yr old boy currently in an orphanage in Eastern Europe. He is actually best friends with a boy named Erik Micheal who is currently being adopted by our friends the Redmans. We can't wait to be able to tell the boys that they will both be coming home to Oklahoma and be able to still be friends and be together here in the US. We don't know a lot about him at this point other than what our friends have told us and what little info is given from the orphanage. We do know this info: We know that his mother was a single and passed away before he entered the school. We know that he was in the orphanage since age of 7. He probably was in other orphanage for 1 year or 2 before that, but we don't have certain information. He is very good character. He is active and has a good sense of humor. He is never depressed and always in a good spirit. Intellectually he is very talented kid. He is bright and smart.
We just can't wait to bring him home. We have filled out our initial paperwork and are waiting for the social worker to contact us regarding the home study. Bryan will be completing his passport app today so we have the ball rolling. We will be working very hard over the coming days to raise the funds to bring him home. Our first feat is the home study. We need $750 to complete the home study. This is about 1/2 the price of the normal charge for the home study. We are working with the Eli Project to bring Sergiy home. You can visit their website at http://www.eliproject.org/ and make donations towards bringing Sergiy home. If you do please let me know so we can make sure it is earmarked for Sergiy. Thank you all in advance for your prayers and support!
