KOEN for the Gomes family — HI
Joanna and Paki have been married for almost 5 years and have been blessed with 3 children. From the time they met said they’d like to have a “larger” family and had talked about adoption. In late 2012, Joanna and Paki felt God’s call for them to look into adoption. Paki reached out to a friend that had recently adopted through Reece’s Rainbow and she informed them about the website. After much contemplation, they saw a little girl who truly stirred their hearts, but were frustrated when they realized they could not begin the adoption process until Paki came home from a military deployment. Shortly after Paki returned, baby #3 was born and life became a bit more hectic. With their youngest turning 5 months old, Joanna felt God again, gently stirring the desire to adopt. Joanna and Paki returned to Reece’s Rainbow website and were devastated to learn the they little girl they had hoped to find again had passed away.
Paki continued to look through the little faces and came across sweet Koen. Surprisingly, he looks a lot like their oldest son and they absolutely fell in love with this him. They are so excited for God’s calling to bring this little boy into their hearts and family! Please pray for this family as they move forward in this exciting journey.
