Video: This Family Needs Your Help in Bringing Their Daughter Home from Africa

You may remember Jason from a YouTube video that went viral a few years ago. Now this adoptive family needs your help.

Denalee Chapman June 30, 2016

Jason and Candice Mortensen became famous through this YouTube video in 2013. Everyone loves a good love story, and Jason and Candice are certainly in love! So when they shared with YouTube fans their story of 7 years of infertility and the knowledge that came to them that adoption from Africa was part of their divine plan, viewers of their video teamed up to support their financial need so they could bring their son home.

Since that time, the Mortensen family has grown to include more children. But now, they are finding themselves in great need again. With the recent change in adoption laws in Africa, the time frame for Jason and Candice to bring their daughter home has tightened significantly. They have only until July 2nd to raise an additional $30,000 before this window closes. Please share their video and follow this link to contribute to help bring their daughter home.
