CHANNAH for the Monier family — FL

 photo fwbutton150.pngChannah (1)The Monier Family is excited to add another color to their family from Reece’s Rainbow: PINK!

Eric and Jenny have been married for 11 years and have four boys: Jeremiah, Dima, Elijah, and Sammy. Dima joined their family in August of 2011 when they adopted him from Ukraine. From the day after Jenny and Dima landed on U.S. soil the boys have repeatedly asked, “So when will we finally get a sister?” Their prayers have been heard and answered!

Since Dima’s adoption the Monier Family has continued to advocate for the children listed on Reece’s Rainbow. Eric and Jenny were drawn specifically to Channah, however, while they were going through testing for their youngest, Sammy. It had been thought that Sammy had a mild form of Cerebral Palsy thus they researched the condition to learn as much as they could. While it has been determined that Sammy does not have any form of CP they continued to pray for Channah and hoped that a family would come forward for her. God had a wonderful plan in store for the Monier’s and Channah in that they were meant to be her family! The Scripture Proverbs 24:12 played a large part in nudging them in the right direction: “Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”

Eric, Jenny, and the boys have quite a bit of experience with individuals with special needs. Not only had Eric been an ESE teacher before his call into ministry, but their son, Dima, has Down Syndrome. Their family also works with adults and children with special needs at their church through a group called the Love Department. Each week the Monier’s serve about 70 adults and a few children through teaching, singing, art, and lots of love. The special needs adults are affiliated with an amazing organization, The Key Training Center, that helps with job training, offers independent and assisted living, and life skills. Not only will Channah have a family of her own, but an amazing support network as she grows into an adult.

The Monier Family is thrilled to finally be adding a girl to their family and humbly ask that you prayerfully consider donating to their adoption. Most importantly they ask that you keep them as well as Channah in prayer through each step of the way.

MARGIT for the Guarino family — PA

Margit_profileguarino-margitNineteen years ago, shortly after the birth of her special needs son, Nicky, Nancy knew she would someday adopt a special needs child.  Although life didn’t turn out exactly as planned, Nancy felt blessed to know the joy and inspiration that comes with parenting a child with Down syndrome and for many years, felt the tug at her heart to bring another child into her family.  Initially considering domestic adoption, Nancy stumbled onto the Reece’s Rainbow website and immediately knew she wanted to adopt one of the beautiful children listed.  It didn’t take long for Nancy to fall in love with Margit and to know Margit was meant to be Nancy’s adopted daughter and Nicky’s new sister.  Nancy and Nicky are both thrilled at the possibility of sharing their happy lives with Margit and hope to liberate her from a life of institutional commitment.

Thank you to everyone who is able to help Nancy and Nicky rescue Margit from a life in an institution and bring her home to her loving forever family.

LEAH and JOANNA for the Marenco family — CA

MarencoDanny and Sara met in college. Danny was going to be a pastor. Sara was going to be a doctor. They both enjoyed each others company, sense of humor, and love for Christ. A few years, they became boyfriend and girlfriend. A year later they decided to get married. Danny became a teacher and Sarah went to law school. After Sara had her first child, Michelangelo, she knew she wanted to stay home to raise her beautiful baby. Throughout their 18 years of marriage, they added three more beautiful children, a total of three boys and one girl. Danny has been teaching for many years. However, God is calling him back to the ministry. Therefore, he runs the Men’s Ministry at his church, preaches in different churches, and will start his M.A. in Pastoral Ministry in the near future. Sara and Danny enjoy having a loving God centered home where their children can be encouraged, loved, and trained in a Godly home.

Sara’s sister decided to adopt a beautiful down syndrome baby from the Ukraine through Reece’s Rainbow this past year. Although Sara and Danny have wanted to adopt for a long time, seeing Sabrina adopt a child, really made them think of adopting a child. Danny and Sara found a beautiful hearing impaired girl and would like her to be part of their family. Rosalia, their daughter, is very excited to have a new sister. The whole family is excited to have Leah as part of their family. Danny and Sara were very concerned of never having enough money for the adoption. However, after seeing so many families walking on faith, they decided to take a leap of faith. Come home Leah, come home…you have a family that loves you. Danny and Sara would like to thank everyone for their support and showing your great generosity as they embark in this beautiful journey.

RAELYNN for the Yost family — AL

Raelynnyost-raelynnOn their wedding day, Tabitha and Warren vowed to devote their marriage to serving the Lord. As they began to explore ways to fulfill the biblical command to care for orphans, God led them to a Know More Orphans conference. They knew that adoption was something they would do someday, but after speaking with a representative for Reece’s Rainbow at the conference, they realized they had no reason to wait. They are beyond excited to serve the Lord in a way that will bring such a sweet blessing into their lives.

NETTIE for the Owens family — KY

NettieAnthony and Krystal have been married for close to nine years. To say that they hit the ground running, as far as parenting goes, is quite the understatement. Krystal opened her home for foster care for two years before she and Anthony married. As a matter of fact, Krystal was a foster mom to two beautiful blonde haired girls the day the two married. The story goes that when Anthony was told he had six months to complete his foster care training, after marriage, that Krystal made it quite clear that she and the girls were a package deal. He couldn’t have one without the other. Without hesitation, Anthony chose the full package and nine months later, those beautiful blondes officially became part of the Owens “Forever Family”. One month after that, their son Harrison was born and very shortly after that, Anderson and Karrington came along to complete the Owens’ family…..or at least that’s what everyone else thought. Although the Owens family was settled on the outside, there was still a stirring in their hearts to adopt, again. The Owens’ feel strongly that adoption is a mandate from God. They know that God has called His people to care for the orphans and they don’t take that lightly. Although Anthony & Krystal knew they would adopt, again, they always assumed it would be another domestic adoption. However, God began to burden them for the special-needs children, overseas. It is the desire of the entire Owens’ family to rescue as many orphans as possible from a life of uncertainty and shower them with love, stability, hope in Christ, and a future…as well as a momma, a daddy, three sisters, and two brothers.

IAN for the Kirk family — VA

 photo fwbutton150.pngSAMSUNG DIGIMAX A403kirkSteve and Brooke Kirk have known each other since they were teenagers though it wasn’t until their twenties that the two became a couple. They were married in 2005 and welcomed their son, Nicholas, in 2006. Brooke’s pregnancy was complicated and Nicholas was born two months early with a host of complications, many of which the doctors did not feel lined up with his gestational age at birth. Nick spent 6 weeks in the NICU and came home with a g-tube and apnea monitor along with a list of follow up appointments with specialists and therapists. Later genetic testing would reveal that he had a genetic condition called a balanced translocation. The first year of Nick’s life had a lot of ups and downs but by 15 months he was walking, starting to talk, and no longer had his g-tube or any monitors though he continued to receive various forms of therapy through early intervention.

The couple has felt for a while that God was not done growing their family, but, fertility issues and the high risks of another pregnancy made the hope of having another child seem dim. About two years ago through a local homeschool support group Brooke met a couple that were adopting two little boys from Eastern Europe and her eyes were opened wide to the plight of the orphan. She discovered Reece’s Rainbow and quickly felt God break her heart for all of the waiting children. Steve was on board with praying, fundraising, and, advocating for the children but did not feel the same call that Brooke was feeling to adopt. Brooke signed up as a Prayer Warrior for a little boy who is now with his forever family then as an advocate for another waiting little boy. She continued to pray that when the time was right for them to adopt that God would break Steve’s heart the way he had already broken her’s.

Then in January of this year the same friend that first led Brooke to Reece’s Rainbow posted the picture and bio of ‘Ian.’ Immediately Brooke felt drawn to him and requested more information. She showed that information and Ian’s pictures to Steve who agreed to pray about it. Ultimately, just four days later after lots of prayer and research the couple made the joyous, and slightly overwhelming decision to move forward. Their family and friends are all excited to welcome this new child into the fold! Nick had always asked for a big brother but his Mama would tell him that he would be the big brother should a baby come. God must have been preparing Nick’s heart for his brother all along, because he is getting his wish, he will be the little brother by about 6 weeks!

The couple feels blessed to be in this process, however, every thing happened very suddenly with no time for them to prepare ahead of time for an adoption. But, they are working overtime to get paperwork done and funds raised to get their son home as quickly as possible. In all things they trust in the Lord’s provision and perfect timing.

“Do not be anxious about any thing, but in every thing, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

CHUCK for the Pitcher family — MT

ChuckNate and Julie have been married for nearly 17 years now.  They love their chaos filled life; chasing their five biological children from sports, to spelling bees to piano. It’s a simple life, but it’s what they would choose over and over again. Life is about faith and family. It’s about talent shows, Disney sing-offs, homemade pizza, family home evening, wrestling and yes, basketball.

Adoption was not part of their immediate plan when two years ago they stumbled across the profile of a child meant to be theirs on Reeces Rainbow.  They spent a week in country meeting and falling in love with her, and then the birth country formed a law that banned this adoption. Their hearts, and those of  their biological children, were broken. She would never come home. Starting another journey has been a difficult decision.

The knowledge that there was another child for their family nagged at them.  After a few months, Julie and Nate began to study the profiles of children waiting for their forever families. This little face became familiar. And tender. And then, it became theirs

This journey has taken such different direction that what they would have imagined. But they acknowledge their Heavenly Father’s hand in it, and are so excited to add to their family by bringing this little man home. He has NO idea how life will change with 2 brothers, 3 sisters and a mom and dad.

Bring on the ‘firsts’….

HUDSON for the Settles family — WA

Hudson 2Stacey and Daniell met at a 4th of July gathering, they were immediately smitten with each other and married almost one year later. After 9 years of marriage they have three amazing little boys and are looking forward to adding another little one to their mix. Stacey spent the last 15 years honorably serving in the United States Navy as a Quartermaster. He has been on numerous deployments and enjoys his job. Daniell is a stay at home mom who spends a great majority of her time educating their children. When she’s not educating, you can find her snapping photos or creating something in the kitchen.

For over four years they discussed domestic adoption and even completed the training courses but Daniell got pregnant with their third child just as Stacey was leaving on a deployment, so they decided to wait. It wasn’t until Daniell went on a trip to pick up her best friend’s newly adopted children in Eastern Europe that her passion was reignited, Stacey followed suit soon after. What were idle discussions, turned into prayers and serious consideration, then in late October they started searching for a child they could add to their family. They found an amazing little boy in Russia and started the process, but no sooner did they start, Russia closed its doors. With heart break of Russia closing and their family facing a military move they decided to once again, put adoption on hold. They continued to advocate for orphans, support the families adopting and pray for them all. For Daniell, this included daily visits to the Reece’s Rainbow website to pray and oogle over all those sweet babies who needed families to love them. She couldn’t resist them, especially the smiling little face of Hudson, he called to her heart.

With their move edging closer Stacey and Daniell faced numerous decisions, including where to live once they moved and what to do with the home they own. They talked and came up with several different contingency plans, one of which was a plan for the family to stay behind until their home could be either rented or sold. But, none of their plans seemed to settle in their hearts as the right choice. So, as they do with all major decisions, they began to pray that God would show them which path to take. Don’t you know, without hesitation the Lord opened the door and shined the brightest of lights onto their path.  Their plans to adopt were back! They immediately knew that they could finally add Hudson’s smiling face to their family and love him as every little boy deserves to be loved.

Stacey is still scheduled to report to his new duty station in mid November, meaning this family needs to move quickly. Please, consider giving, praying and simply joining the Settles family on their journey to bring Hudson home.

DYLAN for the Kindall family — UT

 photo fwbutton150.pngKindallsGavin and Mali Kindall have been married for almost nine years; after only seven weeks of dating! You could call them crazy, but when you know you know, right! They have a beautiful two year old boy named Jeton, they call him Jet! It has always been in their plans to adopt one day. In their minds it would happen in a few years, but what they didn’t know, was that their beautiful daughters Harmony and Penelope were already here and waiting to be brought home. One night Mali happened upon Reece’s Rainbow and after a few days of falling in love with all the children and being forever changed, Mali knew God had his own plans for them. It didn’t take long before Gavin knew, too.

While in the process to adopt Harmony and Penelope, their girls’ country banned Americans from adopting. Gavin and Mali have complete faith that the ban will be lifted one day and they will bring them home. They will never forget or give up on their sweet little angels! In the meantime, they have prayed about and have decided to change countries and bring a big brother home for the girls and Jet!! Through much heartbreak has come something very beautiful and that is bringing home another son. They cannot wait to bring home their handsome and amazing Dylan!

So much love has already been shown and given to our Dylan that will help bring him home…..we would like to thank everyone with our whole hearts!

God placed a strong burden on David’s and Sherry’s hearts to pursue adoption. During the last thirteen years they have adopted ten children, four domestic and six internationally. Ages range from 1 to 17 years with several having special needs.

God has continued to put a burden on their hearts to continue adopting, especially children with special needs and with older children that have no family. They have committed to three older children including one that will be aging out of the system later this year.

Mark is in the Marine Corps, and has been for about 8 years and plans to make it a career and Janeth is currently a medical assistant/EMT. They are stationed in North Carolina, but have orders to relocate to California next summer. Mark and Janeth did not plan to adopt but somehow ended up on Reeces Rainbow looking at the pictures of all the children that are in need of a family. Searching through the older kids pictures they saw this little boy that resembled their son so much and could not help but feel this overwhelming sadness in their heart for him. From that point on all they did was think about him, and how he would fit perfectly in their family. Without thinking twice they decided they need to bring him home. He was going to be an Anzaldua! God was telling them this was their son and they needed to save him, to bring him home where he belongs, not in a mental institute.

Mark and Janeth, as well as their children, are very excited to bring this little boy into their family and give him the love he deserves.

ELLIETTE and HENRY for the Wetherington family — FL

 photo fwbutton150.pngElliette (1)Jason and Stephanie have been married for almost 14 years. They have been blessed with 5 incredible children: 9 year old Koah, 5 year old Abigail, 2 year old Max, 2 year old Ryder, and their son Isaac. They had always talked about adoption, but it wasn’t until they lost their 18 month old son, Isaac, to heaven last year that they decided to do something about it. Their son, Isaac, was born with many special needs including a very severe heart defect. Losing him was the hardest thing they have ever been through. He was such an incredible blessing to their family, and they loved every second of taking care of him. After they lost Isaac, they knew that they had enough love to bring another child into their family, but this time through adoption like they had always talked about. Because of the joy that Isaac brought to their family, they wanted to adopt a child with special needs. Last October, they brought home their two sons from Ukraine, Max and Ryder. Ryder was born with Down Syndrome and Max was born with a complex heart defect. The two boys have brought so much joy to their family, and God has truly created beauty through their pain. Shortly after returning home from adopting the boys, God began breaking Stephanie’s heart for the older children…those who had never been chosen… those who had been waiting so long for a family, but had been passed over time and time again. They saw Elliette’s profile on Reece’s Rainbow and fell in love with her. She was due to age out next year, at which point she would no longer be eligible to be adopted. Never would they have ever imagined that they would be bringing home a teenager. In fact, after returning home from Ukraine, Stephanie said that she would never, ever adopt an older child. Apparently, God must have found great humor in her statement. They are so excited and can’t wait to bring their daughter home to her family where she belongs. But, they know that they cannot do it without God’s help and your help. Thank you for helping make Elliette one less orphan!

STEVE for the Smith family — WA

 photo fwbutton150.pngSteveJoel and Alicia met in late 2004, and were married just over a year later on the beautiful island of Kauai. After a few years of living a relatively quiet life in North Bend, WA with their 2 huskies, they welcomed their daughter Brenna in 2010. A surprisingly short time after that, they brought home their son Evan in 2011.

Joel was happily working in the energy efficiency field while Alicia worked from home on the online toy store she owns with her mom and sister, and they thought their family was complete. Then in early 2013, they both felt that God was leading them to look into international adoption, and they soon found a little boy that stole their hearts! Now they are hoping and diligently praying that this little man from China will soon make them a family of 5.

DAMION for the Rafferty family — NC

DamianChris and Traci met at a coffee shop in Raleigh, North Carolina. As they started talking they realized they had criss-crossed the country, from Montana to Alabama and back, before they both moved to Raleigh for school. After this first meeting they were merely acquaintances for a couple years until they got to know each other more when they both happened to move to Turkey for jobs. As their friendship bloomed into love they realized their mutual travel wasn’t the only thing they had in common. They both cherished other cultures and people and both loved God and desired to serve Him with their lives.

They got married and had two precious daughters early in their marriage. With a desire for more children, they felt the Lord was directing them to adopt. To be honest, Chris was ready before Traci. It wasn’t that Traci didn’t like adoption, she was just fearful that she wouldn’t love an adopted child as much as she loved her biological children. After much prayer and counsel they desired to follow what they believed God was leading them to do and start the adoption process. The first adoption was lengthy and difficult but God used this to get Traci’s heart ready. When the adoption was finalized in January of 2012 they were both eager to welcome their Bulgarian son, Alex, into their family with their whole hearts.

It’s been a little over a year now and they feel the Lord leading them to adopt another child. They were praying about this when they learned about Damion through a fellow church member who is finalizing an adoption through Reece’s Rainbow. When they saw Damion’s information Chris and Traci knew immediately he was to be part of their family. Within two days they had filed the necessary paperwork to begin the process of bringing him home.

A while back Damion wrote a letter to his future family, “I want to have a family because I love the family. I would love to have a mummy and a daddy who I will love.” (Then he signed it to make it official.) Well, Damion will not only get the mummy and daddy he greatly desires but will also have two sisters, a brother, and the dog he said he wanted. Don’t you just love when a story has a happy ending?!

GABRIEL and BETSY for the Elkins family — TX

OJoLynn has dreamed of adopting children since she was a teenager, even before she dreamed of marriage. She just couldn’t imagine a child being tossed aside due to poverty and illness, and there being no one there to pick the child up. She knew God had laid it on her heart to love the abandoned. Charles had thought of adoption as something he could see in his future, and once they were seriously involved, Charles was 100% in agreement when JoLynn told him she wanted to adopt, regardless of how many biological children she had. Charles and JoLynn were married in 2007 while Juniors in college. In 2008 they welcomed Isak, their bundle of joy, and in 2011 Malkolm, their child of peace came into their lives. But 2009 and 2012 left Charles and JoLynn heartbroken from miscarriages. They felt like there were “gaps” in their family, and while those children could never be replaced, they felt that their family was smaller than it was supposed to be. Feeling a gentle urge from God, they moved up the time table to adopt. JoLynn assumed that International adoption was a distant dream, something that would happen after their children were older and they had fostered and adopted domestically. But when doors refused to open for foster/adoption, a simple phone call “for more information” quickly led to an email with the file of a little boy . Twenty photos and a small, sad life summed up in a few paragraphs shook their hearts in a powerful way- a little boy who had never known a mother’s kiss or felt a father’s embrace had waited for someone to come his entire life. They could not walk away. Charles and JoLynn already consider “Gabriel” their child, and their sons are excited that they will soon have another brother.

“Gabriel” is 3 years old, and lives in an Eastern European orphanage that has been his home since the day he left the hospital. Born premature at a very low birth weight, he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He also has Strambismus and a handful of other easily-treatable conditions. Even with the minimal therapy he receives, he makes great strides towards better control of his limbs. He has moderate institutional delays, but once in a family environment, he is expected to improve greatly. But whatever the case, Charles, JoLynn, Isak and Malkolm cannot wait to give him the love he has missed out on for so long.

Your prayers and support will be greatly appreciated. While they are planning on paying a great portion of the costs out of pocket, the Elkins will need to raise approximately 1/3 of the cost of their adoption.

What was meant to be a single adoption has turned into a double- when they saw Betsy’s photo in April Charles’ and JoLynn’s  hearts were opened to having a daughter. They prayed, asked hard questions and reevaluated what was a necessity in life. Finally they decided that their lives would be blessed by having Betsy as a daughter, and her needs were more outside of their comfort zone than outside their capabilities. Those who have met her have high hopes for her future, and think she and Gabriel will do well adopted together. The adoptive parents of blind children and even blind adults encouraged them again and again to take the leap- that the rewards were innumerable and the challenges are much smaller than imagined.

GARY and MARNIE for the Horton family — OR

 photo fwbutton150.pngGary 158 ODMarnie_2012“Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me” (Matthew 18:5)

Don and Lauren Horton live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Oregon) with their five adopted children and their much loved foster son.
They are blessed to have three grown children living nearby, as well as three fantastic grandchildren!

Their adoption journey began in 1999 with the adoption of a beautiful baby girl with Down syndrome. This opened the Horton’s eyes to the joy and beauty and the lessons to be learned from children that others view as “different”. Their next three adoptions brought them children with a variety of special needs who light up their lives and the lives of those around them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHorton (2)

 

They returned home just this past November with their fifth adoption….a four year old girl with Down Syndrome who weighed just ten pounds. With lots of love and the proper nutrition Sophia has blossomed. She is a true joy.

The Hortons have been blessed with the opportunity of adding another son to their family …a seven year old boy with limb difference. The thought of this child never having a mama and daddy to tuck him in and night, never running errands with daddy in his big truck, never camping and swimming and playing ball with his brothers and sisters…..was heartbreaking. They could not turn their backs on him.

Funding a second adoption less than six months after Sophia’s is daunting. Any financial help no matter the amount would be greatly appreciated!

“Once our eyes are opened we cannot pretend we do no know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows we know and holds us responsible to act.” Proverbs 24:12

TOMMY for the Knuth family — NE

 photo fwbutton150.pngTony_0911knuth-tommyTen years ago, Grace never would have believed she would one day be a single, adoptive mother, let alone a mother to two children with special needs. But God, in His goodness and wisdom, has filled her life with challenge, purpose, and LOVE.

Grace is blessed to be on staff at her home congregation. She serves the Lord as a disciple who makes disciples who makes disciples of Jesus Christ. What she likes best about her job is that God does all the work! For four years she has been given a front row seat to watch Him draw people to Himself and make them new.

That same mighty, life-changing God has also been at work in Grace’s heart and home. He is continually proving Himself strong and faithful on her behalf. His best and most miraculous work so far was in the recent adoption of her first child, Samantha Love. Sam came home last year from an orphanage in Eastern Europe where she was abused, neglected, and unloved. Both mother and daughter have been changed forever by the miracle of her redemption. Now, with room and love to spare, Grace knows it is only right that she extend that love to another child.

“Tommy” has been living in Sam’s former orphanage for 13 years. It’s time for his miracle. His redemption! Grace and Sam cannot wait to bring him home.

Adoption is a spiritual battle field. If you believe in the power of prayer, Grace would welcome you to join her in praying for “Tommy”, his orphanage, and this adoption process. And if you are so led, she and Sam would be blessed by your partnership in raising “Tommy’s” ransom.

DONALD for the Claus family — OR

 photo fwbutton150.pngDonald March2013 (12)claus-leviJosh and Chelsea met at a small church as teenagers, dated for nearly 5 years and have now been married for 9 years. They now live right around the corner from the church where they met and have four beautiful biological children, ages 7 and under.

Chelsea has wanted to adopt since she first heard, as a little girl, that there were children in the world who didn’t have families. Josh agreed that adoption was important but wasn’t yet convinced that it was for their family. When friends of theirs adopted a child with special needs from an Eastern European country, their eyes were opened to the plight of the orphan, especially those with special needs across the globe. Their eyes could not be shut, and Chelsea began advocating for waiting children through Reece’s Rainbow, and became a prayer warrior for several orphans. God started to speak to both Josh and Chelsea about adoption. Through much prayer they came to believe that their family was called to adopt, but they didn’t know who or when. Well, God provided them with the who. A sweet 4 year old boy with Sotos Syndrome and Scoliosis had snuck into their minds and stolen their hearts. Once they knew who they should adopt, that also answered the question of when. NOW! :)

They are stepping out in faith to rescue this precious child from his orphanage in Eastern Europe. Adoption is redemption, and redemption is costly. Please help them give this very deserving little boy a forever family who will treasure him always.

SERAPHINA for the Meyer family — GA

Sarah has always wanted to be a mother, she knew she wanted to adopt and wanted to raise children with special needs. Growing up in a family where she got to witness children come and go through the foster care system, arriving alone, learning to be a part of a family, and leaving to spend the rest of their lives with a new forever family, was such an amazing experience. Even as a teenager, she knew that she wanted to give children that feeling of belonging to a family, when they had none. Now as an adult, she is ready to take that step.

Sarah had been looking into adoption and following waiting children’s stories for quite some time when she first saw and fell in love with a little girl on Reece’s Rainbow. She knew instantly that this little girl was meant to be her daughter and committed to bring her home, but this past January, the country where this little girl was born, closed it’s doors to American adoptions. Sarah still feels committed to that little girl, but acknowledges that God is in control of this journey and after lots of consideration and prayer, she is moving forward to give another child the love of a mother and hopefully, down the road, the joy of a sister. Sarah has fallen in love again, with another sweet girl known as ‘Seraphina’.

Bringing ‘Seraphina’ home is truly a blessing. She will be loved and cherished by everyone who meets her and already holds a very special place in Sarah’s heart. Your prayer and financial contributions towards ‘Seraphina’s’ journey home, is truly appreciated.

LISA for the Livshin family — NC

LisaJames and Jamie met 10 years ago through family members when James’ brother married Jamie’s cousin, however they lost touch until 4 years ago when they met up again and there was an instant connection. A friendship was formed over the next year and now 3 years later they have a wonderful marriage that grew out of their friendship. They are so proud of their blended family, two girls Emillie (15) and Bella (8) from James’ previous marriage and their son Jacob (2).

The Livshin’s were introduced to Eastern European orphans when their church sponsored a hosting program during the summer. James was born in Russia and still speaks the language and Jamie was involved in the children’s ministry so it seemed like a great volunteer opportunity. Little did they know God had a bigger plan. It all started when the hosting program was one host family short. They agreed to host a 10 year old boy and in just 3 weeks fell completely in love with him and wanted to adopt, but were unprepared for the process and the cost. After many tears it was decided it was not the right time for them to adopt but were open to it in the future. Two years later they were approached with the idea of adopting an 8 year old boy who had participated in the same hosting program, but was not adopted. After speaking with his host family they decided they would walk by faith and start the journey of a lifetime. Everything seemed to be moving smoothly and then the email came… the little boy had been referred to another family. Jamie took the news the hardest, she was heartbroken. The tears turned to anger, the anger turned to questions… why would God do this? Then the questions turned to prayer. Knowing that God is in control and has a plan for them they prayed for their hearts to be open and their minds to be patient and they would trust in Him.

James went on a mission trip to the Eastern Europe the last week of March where he met Lisa. A beautiful, kind, smart girl who has so much love to give but so little hope. She is turning 16 in two months and that means will age out of the system. She will have completed the 10th grade and be on her own all alone to face a great big world. James and Jamie can change this girl’s future. They can give her a loving home where she can be party of a family for the first time. She wants to be a chef and they can help her realize that dream. She deserves more because God has a plan for her too.

GWENDOLYN for the Goocher family — GA

 photo fwbutton150.pngGwendolynIsaac and Amy have been married for 7 years! They have five biological children, Elizabeth, Naomi, Abigail, Maverick and one little princess in heaven, Eden. They always dreamed of having a big family and knew from the beginning that adoption would play a role in growing their family. They had considered adopting a special needs child even before their sweet Eden was born. She suffered a severe birth injury resulting in a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. She was very medically fragile and passed away at age 2.

When their family saw beautiful Gwendolyn on Reece’s Rainbow, they knew she was the one! Gwendolyn has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. They are so excited to make her a part of their family. The Goocher family realizes the amazing value that special needs children have and they firmly believe that every child deserves the love of a family. They have a lot of knowledge and skills to help her thrive to her fullest, and look forward to nurturing and loving her. Unfortunately, there is no hope for Gwendolyn to reach her full potential in her current Eastern European orphanage. She will soon be transferred to live out the rest of her life in an adult mental institution. They feel truly blessed to be able to adopt her and make her a part of their family. Please partner with the Goocher family in bringing this precious child of God home to her forever family. Donations and prayers are deeply appreciated! Thank you!!!

UPDATE:  The Goocher family will also be bringing Tessa home!

CONNIE for the Walters family — TN

524Glenn and Vashti Walters live in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and have three children, Amelia, Grant, and James Ivan. In 2011, God gave them a love for a child whose Reece’s Rainbow picture they had seen on Facebook via a Christmas Warrior. “Dillon” became James Ivan Walters in August of 2011 and has rocked the Walters’ world ever since!

Amelia and Grant started asking for a sister almost immediately and would peruse the Reece’s Rainbow “available children” looking for a sister. But it wasn’t until Amelia showed them Connie’s profile that God worked in Glenn and Vashti’s hearts and they knew they had found their daughter. Amelia and Grant both said they prayed about Connie without saying anything to their parents! God certainly does use children to do HIS work!

Connie is almost 10 years old and has been asking for a family of her own. God truly cares about the plight of orphans and Glenn and Vashti are so thankful for His mercy toward them and toward Connie!

“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” ~Matthew 25:40

Abby-Kate for the Lewis family — AL

 photo fwbutton150.pngLewisCharlie and Jeanie have been married for thirteen years. After meeting at church when they were just children, Charlie and Jeanie were reunited later in life. They fell in love and were married at the church where they had met. They, along with their three boys, have a wonderful story to share.

Did you know that elephants can carry their babies for an incredible 21.5 months? Can you imagine having to wait that long to meet your precious little one? The Lewis family understands the pain of the wait. They have waited to complete their adoption for 10 years. After committing to a child in 2003, they completed almost the entire adoption process—minus travel—of a beautiful visually-impaired young girl.

Two years into the process, they were joyfully awaiting a travel date to adopt their daughter when they received a phone call no parent ever wishes to receive. Though they had steadfastly exhausted themselves to raise funds, enjoyed the process of preparing a bedroom, celebrated with an “adoption shower,” and were fully approved…..their daughter would not be coming home. Her country had politically closed its doors to adoptions from U.S. citizens. Stunned, they were left to heal and wonder what would ever come of the precious one they had come to love.

After a second trimester miscarriage, they decided a few years later to try to adopt a child through the Department of Human Resources. With full approval of DHR (having taken 10 weeks of classes and received an approved home study), they patiently waited to have a child placed in their home. Encouraged to be patient, the Lewis family worked with DHR for over a year and did not receive one placement.

Now the Lewis’s have come full circle. They have taken time to pray and seek God for what His perfect will would be for their family. And, believe it or not, they have received the referral of a perfect little girl who just so happens to be visually-impaired. In fact, this child has the exact same eye condition that their previous “daughter” had. And though she will need surgery and will remain partially blind, she will be able to “see” and feel and know the love that her family has for her every day of her life.

Overjoyed, the Lewis’s await bringing their daughter home after a 10-year “gestation” of the heart.

MATTHEW for the Richey family — TX

Matthew 2011richey-matthewClay and Jenny met their freshman year at Baylor University. They have been married almost 10 years and have two biological children. Their son, Jack, is 6 years old and their daughter, Chandler, is 3 years old. Clay works in Marketing for a publishing company and Jenny works part time as an RN. They have lead a full happy life and they thought their family was complete, until about 6 months ago. The topic of adoption was something that Clay and Jenny discussed on and off during their dating years and early years of marriage. But the past 6 years since having children, those desires were pushed aside while caring for their biological children. This past fall, God started to stir up the idea in Clay’s heart again. And one night, while reading a friend’s blog, Jenny discovered Reece’s Rainbow. The blog was advocating for a Down’s syndrome child and Jenny immediately felt that it was now time to answer God’s calling for their lives and start the adoption process. Amazingly enough, the very next day at church was adoption Sunday. Clay and Jenny both knew it was time and there was no turning back. Clay and Jenny have been blessed tremendously the past few months by this process. They are so excited to bring “Matthew” home and give him the life that he deserves.

After 19 hours sitting next to one another on a plane, they were friends and their friendship grew until 10 years later they were married. They returned to China, with their daughter Aila (2) and continued to teach, learn and serve among some of the world’s most beautiful people, but wondered about their part in ‘caring for the orphans’.

One day as they were looking at the children on Reece’s Rainbow (something they had done since their daughter was born) there was this little face that jumped out to both of them. They shared this with one another and were amazed that it had happened to both of them separately and thought, ‘We can at least inquire about her… ‘. So they did and what seemed impossible to them (adopting while living abroad), they then learned was possible, as are all things with God! So they are now in the process of adoption!

Although they started the process while living in China, they are now back in the US, preparing for their little girl to join them as a family soon. Thank you for reading part of their story, for praying for their family and ‘Hannah’ as they work to bring her home and for sharing their story with others. And for those who are able, thank you for donating to their adoption costs. They are so humbled and honored to become a part of this little one’s life, and can not wait to welcome her into their family!

PRISCILLA for the Einfeld family — WA

Priscillaeinfeld-priscillaDaryl and Ruth have been married since 1985, after a 4 year friendship. They have 12 biological children, ages 26 down to 1 year old, 10 of whom are still living at home. Their 4 yo daughter, Esther, has Down syndrome and is such a blessing to their family. Ruth runs a home business selling cloth diapers and training pants, which focuses on products for children, youth and adults with special needs, so this has allowed her many contacts to other families with children who have special needs. Last year, Ruth discovered Reece’s Rainbow. Last spring she began to advocate for children and families there. But the desire to help these children took a deeper root in her heart, and the thought of adopting began to take root. After much discussion, research and prayer as a family they decided it was time to step out in faith and attempt to adopt a little one with Down syndrome. They have learned so much through their journey with Esther, and they want to use this experience to bless another little one by bringing that child into their home and giving them a forever family.

EDWARD and JOYANNA for the Winslow family — NH

JoyannaLet me introduce you to a New Hampshire family whose mission field is adoption! Residing on a small farm they have named Grace Abounding Farm, this family has 2 biological daughters and 6 adopted children. They take seriously God’s command in James 1:27 which states..”Care for the orphans”. Glenn and Mary have been married for 24 years. Glenn is a self employed carpenter, and Mary is blessed to be a keeper of the home and a homeschool Mom. They are in their 13th year of homeschooling. Their eldest biological daughter is married and age 22. She and her husband have the Winslow’s 2 beautiful grand daughters who live just a few towns over. The Winslow’s other biological daughter is 17, and a senior in high school for homeschooling. Glenn and Mary first stepped out in faith to adopt 2 children from Haiti, 7 years ago. Grace, now 16, and Jon, now 9, are thriving in their home. Their next adoption came 4 years later, in 2010, when they adopted a set of 10 year old twins from the NH foster care system. Edward and Elisha are now 13. Next came little 5 year old Nicole. She was also a NH foster care child. She was adopted officially in August of 2012. She is 7 now. Their latest adoption came in the form of a private adoption of a little drug addicted baby that no one wanted. Rosalinda is now 10 months old and doing really well!

Zoey

Zoey

 

God first put a Bulgarian adoption on their hearts with a plea that came out from Adeye’s No Greater Joy Mom blog for a family for Theodore. Glenn and Mary stepped out in faith willing to bring Theodore into their family. God had other plans for Theodore, and he was matched with another family. God also had plans for the Winslows. It was last week that God made known the needs of Zoey. Glenn and Mary immediately fell in love with precious little Zoey. Knowing that according to God’s word, whatever they did for the “least of these” they would do for God Himself! They also felt called to Edward, too. Now, God is moving mountains for both Zoey and Edward to join the Winslow family! Thank you all so much for taking the time to read about our family, and to encourage us in this way! Please visit our blog for updates!

“We thank our God upon EVERY remembrance of you!” Philipians 1:3

 

Precious Zoey passed away in January 2014.   We are so grateful she was able to know the loving embrace of a family, before going to Heaven.  The Winslow family is continuing on to bring Edward (soon to be Jeremiah!) home, and JoyAnna.  JoyAnna is almost 7 years old, and lives in the same orphanage Zoey was in.

MAELIE for the Olsen family — TN

Lisa and Paul have been married for 17 years. They have three biological children. Their boys (ages 7 and 9) are GREAT big brothers to their baby sister (almost 2) who happens to be a princess with Down Syndrome. The Olsens tried to adopt internationally a few years ago, but the country closed its doors to adoptions with the United States while they were in the process. They were unable to complete their adoption, which was devastating. Lisa’s heart remained tender towards adoption, but they were very reluctant to go down that path again. After the birth of their daughter, they discovered Reece’s Rainbow. Lisa visited the site often, looking at the waiting children and reading about the incredible families who opened their homes and hearts to orphans with special needs. The Olsens spent months waiting and praying, wondering if God was calling them to step out in faith and begin the adoption process again. One little girl in particular touched Paul’s heart. Even then, Paul said “God would have to hit him over the head with a shovel” to convince him it was time to move forward. Well, Paul’s head is still tingling! God flung the doors wide open for the Olsens to step forward to adopt Maelie! The Olsen family is humbled and excited to begin their adoption journey and welcome another princess into their home!

RITA for the Mayr family — CO

 photo fwbutton150.pngmayr-ritaPaul and Kelly got married in 1997. At the time Paul was and engineer and Kelly was a special education teacher. Their first child came in 1998 and it has been a world wind ever since. With a total of five children they knew that they were done birthing children, but not done growing their family. So when they heard that there was a homeless teen that needed a family…..we said….we can always fit one more. A year later we began fostering infants and toddlers. Our journey into the world of special needs began in 2000 with the birth of our daughter Grace. She was diagnosed with Noonan syndrome at one year of age. So they are already connected in the special needs community. We knew that if we were going to adopt, that we would adopt a child with special needs. We saw sweet Rita’s profile and knew that she would be a perfect fit for our family.
