A Child for the Obenauf family — MI
Stephani has always wanted to be a mother. Since she was a little girl, she knew she would have a big family and at least some of her children would arrive through adoption. She thought her family was going to be starting in 2009, when she found out she was pregnant. Sadly, God had other plans and her daughter Emma was stillborn.
Stephani found Reece’s Rainbow in 2011, through a friend that was adopting, she would spend hours looking at the children, reading their stories, hoping that soon, the time would be right to adopt. In late 2013, Stephani started the process to adopt a little girl from Eastern Europe who had Down syndrome. Unfortunately, a month after her dossier was submitted, she learned that another family had officially committed to adopting this little girl. Despite this, Stephani is still determined to complete the process.
Stephani was raised by a single parent and understands the struggles that lie ahead but knows that with God’s blessing and the love and support of her family, she is ready to provide this child with a bright and happy future.
A sincere thank you to everyone for your prayers and financial support.
