EDMUND for the Hinz family — FL
Brian and Erin have been happily married since August of 2008. After a wonderful honeymoon cruise with family friends, they decided that they wanted to start trying for a family. However, God had other plans. After two years of battling infertility and a year of infertility treatments, the Hinzes gave up on having children naturally and began to research adoption.
After weeks of adoption research, Erin came upon the Reece’s Rainbow website and immediately became sold on the idea of adopting a child with Down syndrome. However, she kept this a secret for several weeks while she figured out the best way to approach Brian with the idea. Then, one day, she found a picture of a little boy she knew was meant to be hers. She approached Brian and, after months of research a prayer, they commit to adopting Sterling.
Sterling has Down syndrome and was adopted from Ukraine in October 2011. Now 7, Sterling has been home for over two years and is thriving in a loving home. He has been the greatest blessing the Hinzes could ever imagine. He has helped them to become better people and has given them a love that they never knew existed.

Now, the Hinzes are pleased to announce that they are adding another little man to the family! They cannot wait to get him home and they hope you will join them on this mission.
