2 Children for the Wilde Family — UT

carrie-2016Shannon 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!

And then they saw her face …. When they saw Carrie’s photo, they both knew they had to do everything in their power to bring her home as quickly as possible! Instead of the planned second honeymoon for their 20th anniversary in 2017, they hope to travel to Eastern Europe instead to bring Carrie home where she will be welcomed by an older sister (17) and 4 older brothers (15-5). Shannon waited 2,434 days for Troy’s “yes” – and all along he was just waiting for the right little one to come along!
