Patience 2

A Family for PATIENCE

We are a larger family who has been blessed with children through adoption and birth. For some reason the plan for our kids was that they would all have special needs or “unique abilities” as we say in our family. Though it took some adjustment to begin with, today we would could not imagine living life any other way. […]

Jillian

BAYLEE and JILLIAN for the Eber family — GA


We have five biological children, and we’ve adopted six Chinese children. Our two new daughters will make seven and eight adopted children. Before our first adoption, and before our second international adoption, we said goodbye to our two beloved daughters. After our first biological daughter, Stella Rose, died at 5-days-old in October 2010 (as a result of a very rare chromosomal syndrome and multiple birth defects), God opened our eyes to the beauty and value of all children – not just those who were born “perfect.” In December 2012, we adopted our first two Chinese daughters, one with a limb difference and one with severe Congenital Heart Disease. Our younger baby girl, Rose, the one with severe CHD, went to be with the Lord ten months after we brought her home. Her sweet little life moved us to adopt again, and we brought home two more daughters in January 2015. In August 2015, we learned of a brother and sister (one with a limb difference, and one with a very rare chromosomal difference and repaired heart defect) who had originally been adopted from China and whose family decided to dissolve their adoption. We brought them home in October of last year, and they officially became part of our family in December. We feel that God has given us a legacy of loss and love – beauty from ashes – to share with children who need a family to call their own. Even six years ago, we would’ve never dreamed that God would grow our family in this way or to this number, but we praise Him for the each precious child He has entrusted to us. Our story, and our family, is a testimony of His healing, grace, redemption, and provision!

Joy

JOY for the Woertman family — NC

Candy and Frederick adopted their daughter, Grace, almost three years ago from China. When Grace, who was born with Cerebral palsy, arrived home she was a three-year-old who was used to sitting slumped in her stroller for the majority of the day. The past few years they both realized how blessed they are to live in America. Here, in America, a child who was “Forgotten” in her country is given the chance to succeed. Graces amazes her family every day by what her team of teachers and therapists report her progress. Most recently she started to use her left hand (the palsy side of her body) to take a peg out of a board, and through feeding therapy is now able to chew small bites of food (no more puree)!

Joy has Down syndrome and is a 6-year-old girl living in a foster home. Her story is similar to Grace’s in that she was abandoned shortly after being born. The Woertman’s wish to bring her home and into their home. Their first venture into international adoption requried they refinance their house. This time, though, they are acting on faith that friends, family members, and people they have never met would want to partner with them to bring Joy “home”. An African proverb states that “It takes a village to raise a child.” They are asking for you to join our village to help bring Joy to their household and allow her to be given a chance to realize her full potential in life.

Charlotte C

CHARLOTTE for the Cooper family — MO


Matt and Stacey met in Peru on a mission trip and have 5 children ranging from 3-18 years old. Adoption has been a topic of discussion since the beginning, but it didn’t seem to be the right season. The Coopers feel that the most tangible way to display the gospel of Christ is to adopt and that they should be active in living out James 1:27.  Even though the house was full, it felt like someone was missing from the dinner table and there was another child that needed to be tucked in at night. They knew that they were being called to look to for a child with special needs, and found they had a heart for those with Down Syndrome. While looking at the waiting children, Matt saw Charlotte and remarked, “that’s a Cooper”.

They jumped off the proverbial fence and headfirst into the adoption process. Within days, the Coopers were notified they were not only approved to adopt, but that they were matched with Charlotte as well. When you join God in His plan, it’s like a speeding bullet!

Stacey has a love for running and there is a program called RODS, Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome, so she is able to combine her favorite things together-running, raising funds for orphans, and being an advocate for Down Syndrome! Hopefully once Charlotte is home, she can join Stacey in some races being pushed in a jogging stroller. Charlotte may be the link that joins the entire family in running!

All of the Coopers are eagerly awaiting the call to travel to bring Charlotte home to her forever family. We trust in God that if He called us, He will equip us and we give Him the glory for the provision of finances and the privilege of adoption.

Liam update

LIAM for the Siebold family — AR

Liam (2)Joseph and Samantha have always done things a little differently. They met at 14 and 16, began courting soon after and never dated anyone else. They secretly eloped in 2009 instead of having a big wedding. They didn’t wait long to have children and now 7 years into their marriage have three beautiful kids ages 6 and under!

Adoption has always been on both of their hearts. They always planned to pursue adoption in one way or another. After moving into a bigger house with a fenced yard in the summer of 2015 they began to discuss their options. But in the fall they found out they were expecting! They weren’t certain what God was doing giving them another biological baby when they thought they were supposed to adopt.

In early November, it was discovered that their beloved baby had passed away for unknown reasons. They mourned the great loss of miscarriage and celebrated this short, perfect life God had blessed them with. A couple months later they felt doors being opened and they began their adoption journey officially in January! Their hearts and minds were opened to special needs orphans more than ever.

Little did they know, on the opposite side of the world, a perfect baby boy was born at the same time the baby they were expecting was called to heaven.

He needs them to come get him from the other side of the world as fast as possible! Once again, the Siebolds are doing things a little differently as the medical expedite needed requires them to do everything all at once and much faster than usual! Their sweet boy needs surgery ASAP and they are doing everything they can to welcome him home.

God is good and He writes the best stories!
