A benefit “Snowcone Sale” is set to help a McAlester family adopt a child.
Mat and Necia Hutson have two children, both born with a genetic disease called Neurofibromatosis and are trying to adopt a little boy who also suffers from the disease.
“We have two children,” said Necia Hutson. “Andrew is 5 and Olivia is 4 and we were told by several doctors that we shouldn’t have more biological children.”
She said both children were born prematurely and both children have Neurofibromatosis. “I love being a mom and at the time I couldn’t understand God’s plan for our family,” Necia Hudson said.
“We now believe that God is going to grow our family in a different way.”
In October 2011 the couple said they found a profile for a little boy through Holt International who also has Neurofibromatosis.
“His name is Jo Seung-hyeon and we knew instantly that we should start the process of making him part of our family.”
She said on Saturday all the proceeds from Snoman’s Delites in Tandy Town will be donated to with the costs to adopt the little boy.
“The money will be used to help us bring Isaac home,” she said. “We are excited for the opportunity to have our community be part of this journey.”
She said the couple hope to bring their little boy home next summer.
