Shannon first discovered international adoption – and Reece’s Rainbow – in 2008 after a heartbreaking miscarriage. She instantly knew adopting internationally was something she wanted to do, but Troy wasn’t so sure. After serving as missionaries in Haiti (Troy) and Paraguay (Shannon), they knew first-hand the difference that good medical care, good nutrition and love made in the lives of children – but Troy felt they were busy enough with their 4 children and worried about the cost and risks involved. Two more miscarriages and finally a surprise baby boy followed over the next 8 years, but the dream of adopting a child in need never left Shannon’s heart – and the reluctance to adopt never left Troy’s!
As soon as they saw the photo of Carrie, a precious little one in pink with melting brown eyes and a fluffy white teddy bear, they BOTH knew they had to do everything in their power to bring her home as quickly as possible! They got through the paperwork as quickly as they could, but sadly, a week before they received USCIS approval (the very last step!), they found out that Carrie had gone into foster care in her country and was unavailable. They believe that God would not have so clearly put their feet on this path for nothing, and are pressing on and looking forward to meeting the special kids He has picked out for them!
