David and Kathy Bain are FRAUDS, they receive over $100,000.00 per year in subsidies plus full medical on the kids and they want us to believe that they can't make their house payments. Of course they are going to forclose on your house when you haven't made a payment in nearly a year.
What a CROC and a SCAM they are trying to pull on the good citizens of Northern Nevada and across the country.
If they weren't personal friends and Business partners with the director of Washoe County Social Services (Who is also the treasurer of the NON-PROFIT Childrens Cabinet in Reno, who setup the donation account for them), they wouldn't be in the position. And the Reno Gazette Journal reporter just helps to perpetuate the fraud by writing that 1-sided article

Obviously the person that wrote the comment below does not realize the average yearly cost to raise ONE child. Maybe they should do some research before posting such an ignorant comment.

Why don't you contact ABC and do an application for Extreme Makeover Home Edition? They might be able to help you out.

I meet David at a class. He is the real thing. I think people write these comments because they dont approve or understand the decision to adopt that many kids at once. Knowone ever said that adoption was easy. I think people need to stop judging others and worry about there own lives. David and his wife have huge hearts and should not be chastized in the media.
It takes a specific type of people to open there hearts and homes to that many children. Apparently your hearts arent that open. Stop judging them!

I've been a family friend of Dave and Kathy for at least 10 years and all they have ever done is help me out when ever they could. People have no idea what they have done to help people out. They are an amazing family who has helped so many people and went through a rough patch in life. Everyone does at some time or another. I love them and hope things continue to go good for them.
