Sasha Carpenter is an adoptee. She was adopted as an infant from Russia where, doctors said, she would never walk because of her mild form of cerebral palsy. But now Sasha is a college student, walking the campus and crediting her parents. But that’s not all her parents have done.

The Carpenters have adopted six kids – all with special needs. They want to adopt two more, but their home isn’t big enough. So Sasha is working to raise $20,000 before Christmas to surprise her parents with a down payment on a home they’ve already looked at and wished for.
