KAYDEE for the Tanquary family — OK
In September of 1992, Aaron’s family moved to a small country town in northeastern Oklahoma where Tosha had lived all but a couple of years of her life. That little town was all she knew, and Aaron was different than anyone she had ever met. Within a month’s time they were dating and fell in love. They have been together ever since. In August of 2012, they celebrated their 18th year anniversary together.
Aaron and Tosha have 13 children in total; 7 of whom never took their first breath and 6 who keep them very busy in various activities including homeschool. Aaron works for an oil and gas company based out of Houston, TX and is studying to become a pastor/elder. Together, he and Tosha founded a mission in their home town where they give baby essentials to mothers in need.
As they were looking into expanding the mission’s reach to include helping orphans, they became broken after learning the plight of what Jesus calls, “the least of these”. Their youngest daughter was born with down syndrome, and the fact that children like her are thrown away, locked in cribs and left alone with nothing, their whole lives, really crushed them and set their hearts on fire for orphans.
They are determined to help rescue as many precious children as they can and advocate for those that they leave behind. They are ready for this journey that God has called them on, and while they do not understand why, God has been so sweet in grace, love, and, mercy to them.
They are excited to see God orchestrating their adoption of Katiya and can NOT wait to get her HOME, where she belongs.
