- Aaron and Stephanie Jones have eight Filipino adoptees
- They first adopted a group of five siblings in 2017 and has recently adopted another group of three siblings
- The couple paid over $26,000 for the adoption fees and the home study agencies but are raising funds to help pay for the kids’ airfare and transportation fees
A Missouri couple has adopted a total of eight Filipino orphans.
Aaron and Stephanie Jones didn’t only give eight Pinoy kids a new home but a chance at a whole family. In 2017, the Jones’ adopted a group of five siblings from Gentle Hands Orphanage in Metro Manila, Philippines. This 2021, they are looking at adding more to their full family by preparing to provide a home for another group of 3 siblings from the same orphanage.
The new adoptees Krisha Mae, Althea, and Ellein have been at the Manila orphanage since April 2015. The kids are excited to start their new life away from the orphanage which currently cares for 115 children.
The previous adoptees Ruben, Haidee, Princess, Nino and Trixie have all adjusted to their new home and are now ready to welcome the newest addition to their family. And since they all came from the same orphanage, it turns out they already knew each other, according to the Patriot Ledger.
The Jones couple have paid more than $26,000 for the adoption fees and the home study agencies. They are also trying to help raise funds for the cost of airfare and transportation to get the children to their new home in the United States.
And as much as they want to fly to the Philippines to get their new children, they will have to wait until the end of February or early March when everything is finalized and Covid restrictions are lifted.
