ALEJANDRO for the Greene family — MO

 photo fwbutton150.pnggreene-alejandroAlthough his country’s guidelines won’t allow us to show you little “Alejandro’s” face, we CAN tell you that he is an adorable, energetic and and quickly growing 6-year old who deserves and desperately NEEDS a family of his own! We are on our way! This precious boy is Deaf, has been diagnosed with Autism and global development delays. He was a mere 2.2 pounds when born and has endured several surgeries as a toddler and has shown what a fighter he is! To see him doing somersaults now, you’d never guess the tough start to life he has overcome !

The Greene family has been married almost 8 years and has always considered adoption to grow their family. They were pursuing domestic adoption when they discovered Alejandro. They were completely smitten and knew they had been led to their son. In June 2013 they committed to “Alejandro” and have been working incredibly hard to complete each step along the way. They are now preparing their travel documents to travel in January 2015! The long wait is almost over!

Charles was adopted as a child and knows firsthand the blessings that come from having your forever family find you. Denise has spent over 20 years working within the Deaf community and with individuals with special needs. She is anxious to introduce Alejandro to basic Sign Language to help him communicate for the first time EVER. Both are very prepared to offer this amazing boy a home full of the love, support and 1:1 care he needs to thrive and come out of is isolation.

This is their FIRST child and FIRST adoption and they are anxious to secure the remaining funding to allow them to complete the process!! Every single dollar donated is appreciated and needed! The Greene’s have exhausted all possibilities for further loans and grants and credit, and have held numerous fundraisers. They now are praying for their story to reach those in a position to give generously and help them cross the finish line!

Their goal to be fully funded is $11,000.

KEEGAN for the Vantrease family — KY

Keegan (1)Mike and Anita have been married for 28 years. Anita was adopted at 11 months old. Her dad was also adopted but at the age of 3. He actually was one of the last orphans to ride the orphan train. Anita and Mike had a heavy heart to adopt as it’s always been a part of Anita’s life. They have 4 children all adopted from China and began the journey back in Dec. 2000 when they brought home their first daughter Emmi from Nanchang at the age of 12 months with the nsn program. She is now 14 yo. In 2003, they found their second daughter Maggie on the first sn listing. Her need was cl/cp. She is filled with energy and bounces through the house twirling and doing cartwheels. Not even thinking about a son, they felt the call again to adopt. But this time, God had a different plan for them, it was a son. They found Jacob at the age of 3 also on a sn list. He had a club radial hand. Anita advocated for him and didn’t even realize he was to be their son. Then God layed it on her heart and she knew!!! Trusting in Him, they started the journey to bring him home. Again, what a joy he has been to their family. In 2009, their heart became heavy for the older child. With prayer and trusting in God, in 2010 they found their daughter, Faith, age 12 yo. She was listed with Sequalae from a brain injury, cp. Since coming home, Faith has adjusted very well and is learning with leaps and bounds. It is with great joy that she is coming to know Jesus and attends a Friday night Chinese worship group and then of course on Sunday too. Now as the Vantrease family starts the journey again to their second son, the entire family is giddy to get him home. As with the previous 4 children, Keegan will be loved and adored. He will grow and learn about the love of Jesus in a home where He is present everyday.

FELIX, GRETA, and ROMEO for the Barnett family — TX

 photo fwbutton150.pngGreta40804201205 RomeoDavid and Stephanie met in 1991 at First Baptist Church Frisco through David’s sister, Cindy, who was Stephanie’s Sunday School teacher. Stephanie grew very close to Cindy & her family as she began babysitting Cindy’s son & daughter. David & Stephanie were only initially family friends who only saw each other at church when David came to visit his family since David was in college & Stephanie was in high school. Once Stephanie graduated high school & began college, their relationship forged into a friendship. However, all of that changed in November 1996 when David’s mother was in the end stages of terminal cancer. Stephanie rallied around David’s family & became a strong support & source of comfort to David. It was during this time that God made it abundantly clear that their relationship would become more than “just friends.” In the month that followed, they began praying and seeking God’s will & timing for their new dating relationship. A month later, in January 1997, David and Stephanie became engaged to be married. Over the next eight months, as Stephanie finished her senior year in college, they continued to seek the Lord in their relationship & prayed for ways to serve Him together. In September 1997, David and Stephanie were married.

Initially they did not want children, so David continued his career as an accountant & Stephanie began her career as a secondary English and Reading teacher. For the next four years they happily continued on their career paths continually praying that God would open doors for them to serve Him in a mighty way through their daily lives. In May 2001, Stephanie’s life was shattered when her brother, Shane, tragically passed away. During this time of unspeakable grief, David & Stephanie sought comfort in God & remained steadfast in their desire to serve Him. God, in return, began to change their hearts in relation to their views on having children. Within a few short months, Stephanie was pregnant with their first child. What started as an uneventful healthy pregnancy changed when Stephanie entered her 2nd trimester. On December 23rd, during a routine sonogram, the Barnett’s were informed that their precious baby no longer had a heartbeat. They were completely devastated & in mourning, but found comfort in knowing that their precious baby was with Jesus & that they would one day be reunited as a family. The Barnett’s also found solace as they continued to place their trust in God & believe that, in His Sovereignty, God still had a plan for them that included children.

In April 2002, God widely opened the first door that would place David & Stephanie on their life ministry when Stephanie received a call. A family member knew of a perfect newborn baby who needed a family because his birth mother was unable to care for him. Immediately, Stephanie told the family member that she and David wanted this baby! It was only after she hung up the phone did the word “adoption” form in her mind and sear into her heart. Her very next thought was, “Oh my goodness, I just committed to this baby and did not even consult David!” Oops! When David got home from work later that night, Stephanie informed him that he would be a daddy in a matter of days. Thankfully, David reacted with more enthusiasm over adopting their son than Stephanie did! Several days later, the Barnett’s became first time parents through the beautiful world of adoption. They named their precious gift from God Copeland Shane after David’s grandpa, Copeland, and Stephanie’s brother, Shane. It was at this moment David & Stephanie knew their family would be built through adoption & not biologically. They could not believe that God would bless them in this way & could not wait to see how He would grow their family!

In 2004, the Barnett’s moved to San Antonio & began to earnestly pray that God would once again open the doors to adopt another child. Stephanie was teaching high school English & Reading and, in 2005, met a teenager with Down syndrome who changed her life forever. Although he was not Stephanie’s student, this amazing boy asked her to help him with his homework each morning. As Stephanie tutored him, she could not help but fall in love with him & marvel at just how perfectly & beautifully God had created him. So, for the next three years, David, Stephanie, & Copeland prayed that God would bless them with a child with Ds whom they could adopt. In 2008, their many prayers were answered when God blessed them with a beautiful newborn baby with Down syndrome! God had now wonderfully added the words “Down syndrome” to the word “adoption” while building their family. They named their new son Silas Eli. In the New Testament, Silas was one of the first Christian missionaries who served beside the Apostle Paul. It was only fitting that they chose this name because this was the missionary journey that they had been praying for and that God had called them to. Eli was David’s grandpa’s middle name.

From the moment the Barnett’s brought Silas home, he absolutely rocked their world! They now knew that God would call them to adopt more children with Ds. In 2010, Stephanie was led to Reece’s Rainbow through an article in People Magazine and the Barnett’s lives were forever changed. Through a series of miraculous events, the Lord completely opened the doors for the Barnett’s to bring home THREE more children. A few days after Christmas 2010, they officially committed to bringing home Igor, Tihon, and Leeza. In October of 2011, David and Stephanie landed on US soil with Igor (whom they named Teague Josiah), Tihon (whom they named Trenton James), and Leeza (whom they named Maclayne Faith – Mackie for short). The Lord had now graciously added the word “orphan” to the words “adoption” and “Down syndrome” as He continued to grow their family.

Now, a little over two years later, the Lord has answered the Barnett’s prayers of adopting again by opening doors for them to bring home three more orphans with Down syndrome from Eastern Europe. The Barnett’s are absolutely head over heels in love with Felix, Greta, & Romeo and cannot wait to bring them home! Please join the Barnett’s on their journey through prayer and support as the Lord once again grows their family through “adoption,” “Down syndrome,” and “orphan.” The Barnett’s are forever blessed and humbled by all those who have joined and will join them on their beautiful journey to fulfill God’s calling for their lives and ministry. Thank you!

17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.” ~ John 14:17-19

TARAN + 1 for the Davenport family —

 photo fwbutton150.pngTaran-smilingThe Davenport’s are a family of four, soon to be six that live and serve in Central China (since 2012). Eric and Wendy have been married for 13 years and have two sons that are 11 & 12 years old. They have been touched by and passionate about orphan care since 2009. That’s when they spent time in an orphanage in Africa and then later that year welcomed their first foster baby into their home. They fostered 5 children over a two year period. Those years spent as foster parents were treasured times. They continue to reminisce about the little ones that God placed in their home and in their hearts. They didn’t initially feel led to adoption but, after moving to China and working with orphans in 2012, God did a mighty work in them and in their hearts to draw them towards the decision to provide a permanent home to children who need a home. For that they are so thankful! They feel so clearly directed by God to adopt that they want to obey Him. God desires for orphans of all nations to be loved, cared for, and adopted into families.

They are well into the long process of providing a ‘forever home’ to two boys in China. They have been matched with one child and are awaiting a match to the second. They will be traveling to get their first Chinese son in the spring of 2014. He was involved in an accident at the age of two that nearly took his life. He spent 6 months in the hospital and was abandoned during that time. He had multiple surgeries to help repair his injuries. He has recovered and can walk, talk, run and play. He is incontinent and wears a diaper. His incontinence prevents him from attending school.

The biggest challenge is not opening their hearts and home to adopted children (God has already taken care of that!), but it is finding the finances to make this happen. The estimated total cost for the adoptions is $40,000. That’s certainly money they don’t have. Actually it’s laughable from an earthly standpoint. But they know God is faithful and the call to adopt was so strong that He won’t leave them alone in this. He is a God who provides.

They are overwhelmed by the support they have been given through encouragement, funding, and prayers. They would like to ask for continued prayers as the process unfolds. Please also pray that their boys in China will be loved and cared for in their absence and daily feel His presence.

Caring for the fatherless is a mark and responsibility of His people and they believe God is moving through the Kingdom in a profound way to care for these precious ones. Perhaps your role is adoption or fostering. Maybe it’s being a prayer warrior for the least of these. Or maybe you are called to use the resources He has entrusted to you to help welcome children into Christian homes. If so, please consider helping them overcome this financial hurdle.

Please pray this entire process will glorify God and fulfill His purposes. Thank you for investing in the Kingdom through prayer and finances—it will be an investment with an eternal return!

Her daughter Elisa, adopted from Bulgaria and Lara, from China were joined by Mary, adopted in 2007, also from China. She thought her family was done but God had other plans and she knew she had another child waiting to come home. Over the last few years many children have touched her heart and she liked to think that she had prayed many children home. Last April, she saw Savannah and knew that this was her long awaited daughter. She prayed for many months that God would provide a way for her to bring her daughter home. God opened those doors this fall, and now the whole family is excited to be welcoming 5 year old Savannah into their hearts and home.

A CHILD for the Shoger family — FL

ShogerAndrew and Kristin have been married for 10 years and have 3 biological boys! In the spring of 2013, God began to open their eyes to the needs of children around the world who are without families. Seeing how much they have been blessed by God with a loving family, faith, and a warm, cozy house, the Shogers felt God calling them to open their arms to another child. They began to have a strong desire to give a child in need a family, love, security and the chance to know and love Jesus. As they prayed about adoption, the Lord began showing them over and over again children with down syndrome and other special needs. As their eyes were opened to the life that awaits children with down syndrome in Eastern Europe, they decided to follow their hearts and pursue the adoption of a special little one with an extra chromosome. They hope to add a little pink to all the blue that’s currently in their home! Though they don’t know her name and have never seen her face, they know without a doubt that God has knit this special little one together in her mother’s womb and, even now, is knitting her together in their hearts!

Please join the Shoger’s on their journey of faith by following their blog. They covet your prayers, your support and your love as they embark on this exciting and life changing journey!

PHINEAS and LOVE for the Lee family — OR

 photo fwbutton150.pngPhineasLeeKelly and Kevin (K.C.) have been married for 10yrs and have 3 children Kendall (8), Kopelan (6) and their newest blessing whom they just finalized on this past month Karis (1). They have been blessed by adoption 2x now and know the love and joy it brings to a family. They were foster parents for over 9 years in the past and worked/volunteered in various fields with children who needed a little extra love. To say their life has not been surrounded by children would be an understatement. Recently moving from the East coast to the West coast to be closer to Kelly’s family, they have just bought their dream house in the country. They now have the house, and the land and have even added some goats and chickens to the mix. After years of advocating, praying and donating to families bringing children home to their families Kelly and K.C. are stepping out in faith as they not only plan on bringing one, but two sweet song birds into their family! They are so excited and the older children are overjoyed at the prospect of a new brother and sister. Especially Kendall, she is enjoying the fact that she may become a little sister!

Committing to “Phineas” is very special to us. Kelly being his Guardian Angel has prayed and advocated for months for him. She has raised funds and talked to families late into the night that were so close to committing, but never did. Now we know why. He was our son. God was preparing their hearts. It was not until they committed to host two children through a hosting program P143.org and the hosting did not work out that they really felt the tug. Why wait? Why should we wait until summer hosting? Why should we make the kids wait? We prayed and struggled with what to do. It was K.C. that said, ” Why don’t we just adopt then”. So here they go…. Please Pray as they step out in Faith in this brand new journey of International Adoption!!

EBONY for the Sutton family — VA

 photo fwbutton150.pngEbonyThe Suttons believe children are a gift from God and they have been abundantly blessed with 9 children, ages 11 and under, to love and raise up so far! Coming from a family that is not new to adoption, they always knew they would adopt someday, as well, and they completed their first adoption in January 2013.

Just four months after returning home from Eastern Europe with their son, Benjamin (Mikale on RR), the Suttons discovered he had a younger brother at the same orphanage that they didn’t know even existed. They stepped out in faith to follow God’s leading to bring ‘Gideon’ home as well. Almost exactly a year after beginning the process of tracking down his file, committing to adopt him, completing their dossier and thinking of him as their son…they finally got to go meet him. Sometimes God’s plans do not end up the way we expect them to. Sometimes He wants His children to say yes and obey…and He instead uses them for His purpose in an unexpected way. God did not give them peace to bring ‘Gideon’ home. Heartbroken but trusting in God’s plan…they have committed to advocating, sharing all they have learned and helping to find the perfect family for ‘Gideon’.

During that year, while waiting for ‘Gideon’s’ file to become available, they saw a picture of a little girl and knew she was supposed to be their daughter. During their first adoption, they had hoped to adopt a little girl along with Benjamin, but were not able to find the one meant to be in their family. They wouldn’t have even seen her had they not been watching for ‘Gideon’ to show up on the waiting child lists, because they had not planned on adopting again so soon. God is in the details and looking back, they would have missed out on the precious blessing soon to join their family.

Ebony faces a bleak future growing up as an orphan in her birth country. She has been waiting for a family her whole life and the Suttons cannot wait to bring her home as their precious daughter, sister and granddaughter.

Would you please consider helping the Suttons, with a tax deductible donation? No amount is too small and they are grateful for each and every gift and prayer.

“Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.” I John 3:18

Neither thought that they would be pursuing adoption again so soon after the first, but after seeking God’s will, and with the counsel of their close friends and family, they are ready to once again step out in faith.

 

Update, May 2014:  Angie and Jason have felt God calling them towards older children since shortly after starting the adoption of Chance, and they made the decision to add Callie to their ongoing adoption after praying and seeking the council of friends and family.

Callie is going to be their oldest child (by almost 6 years!) and Angie and Jason are actually just barely old enough to be able to adopt her. They have high hopes that she will be a great big sister to Claudia and Chance, and look forward to seeing her thrive in a loving family. The VanHalles would greatly appreciate your prayers, and can’t wait to see God in action this time around.

Michael (Jude) 2014

After two years in process to adopt a child from Russia, John and Amy Jupin finally met their little boy in December 2012. They were elated! Davis was sweet and funny and wonderful. Excited and head over heels in love, the Jupins returned home to wait for a court date. One week later, Russia passed a ban prohibiting Americans from adopting children from Russia. The Jupins were devastated.

Almost a year since losing their sweet Davis, the Jupin family has decided to give adoption a try again. This time their hearts have found a young man from Eastern Europe who desperately wants a family. He is 11 and endearing and kind and so very deserving of the love only a family can give. Lord willing, he will finally get his wish and join the Jupins’ three other children, Joshua, Anna and Benjamin.

SutterAriel photo fwbutton150.pngJason and Emily have been married for 19 years. They have 4 children who make them very proud: Hannah (18) Julia (16) Noah (12) and Gracie (5). Jason has a heart for ministry and Emily is a stay-at-home mom. (i.e., she homeschools the kids and shows them love by taking them all over the world and back for the sake of their growth through various activities). While Jason and Emily had talked about adoption before they were married, it wasn’t until recently that they were confident that it was now time.

Jason and Emily ask that you would join them in prayer as they walk this journey to bring home the children God has for them. They also thank you for prayerfully considering supporting them through this process.

ZOLA for the Obenauf family — MI

 photo fwbutton150.pngZola Photo 2 Apr-2013Stephani 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. When a friend posted about “Zola”, Stephani knew instantly that hits little girl was meant to be her daughter.

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 “Zola” with a bright and happy future.

A sincere thank you to everyone for your prayers and financial support.

FloraYork (2)Kevin and Monica Gerber met in college at Liberty University and have been married for over thirteen years. They have 2 biological girls and 1 adopted son from the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and have been amazed how God has grafted their son seamlessly into their family. God has used a simple act of obedience to love an orphan for his glory and they have watched with joy as countless others have had their hearts softened toward the plight of the orphans around the world.

They and their children are thrilled to be claiming York (Kennedy) and Flora (Ruthie) as their own from Asia. Kennedy is unable to walk due to post-operative hydrocephalus and Ruthie has Down syndrome. It is their sincerest hope that the gospel and God’s love for the fatherless would be made famous and multiplied. They would be so thankful for your prayers and financial support.

After the birth of number 4, they knew they had room in their hearts and home for one more and started looking at Recce’s Rainbow for the perfect child with “something extra.” They were surprised when the “something extra” turned out not to be a chromosome but a sibling. Their plans changed the moment they laid eyes on them and suddenly their hearts and home found room for 2 more. The whole family is so excited to welcome their new brother and sister.

AUTUMN and ABBY for the Fraley family — OH

FraleyAaron and Julie first met in seminary and have been married for 17 years now. They have two biological children – Winter (12) and Noah (10). Aaron is a pastor and Julie is working for the local school system.

When Aaron was in seminary he tried to make a few deals with God. First, he told God that he would do anything for Him – except be a youth pastor. Second, he would do whatever that was anywhere in the world- except India. Well, God has a really great sense of humor. After graduating from seminary, Aaron took a job as an accounting clerk with the University of Maryland, biding his time and waiting for a ministry opportunity to open up. Four years later, he really was ready to do anything just to be in ministry…. even be a youth pastor in the inner city. And guess what, he loved it! During those years working for the university, Aaron met his best and lifelong friend, Suresh, whose family is from India. Do you hear God giggling yet? Because this man who wanted to do anything but work with kids or go to India is now desperate to go to India and become a father to more kids.

For Julie, it began at age 12 when her mom took the family on a missions trip to Mexico. It was there in the hotel pool that she was baptized and felt that she was called to the ministry. Every summer following this, Julie traveled with missions teams working in orphanages throughout Mexico and Guatemala. She attended seminary and married Aaron and 2 kids later, the passion for orphans and adoption was still burning in her heart. Right around the time that things were looking financial stable and they were ready to pursue adoption, Julie’s father became ill. She quit her job so that she could care for him in his own home, as was his wish. Julie’s father was also adopted (domestically as an infant). The years caring for him were overwhelming, but priceless. When he passed away, Aaron and Julie took the inheritance they received and used it for the upfront adoption costs. Now, not only will a lifelong dream of Julie’s heart be fulfilled, but her father’s legacy will be carried on as his granddaughters are adopted into this loving family.

PEPE for the Nelms family — VA

nelms-tiffanySince she was a little girl, Tiffany wanted a large family. At 30, Tiffany decided to adopt as a single mother. With a degree in social work and a love for international travel, she traveled most of Latin America over the last 10 years. International adoption from a region of the world she loved so much seemed a great way to start a family.

A friend shared several waiting children in Latin American and Tiffany immediately fell in love with Pepe. Having traveled to Pepe’s country in the past as a tourist (and loving it), it was an even better fit. Tiffany’s work with immigrant children in the US keeps her well connected to the Latin culture, a part of her life she wants to share with Pepe.

Pepe has some delays, but is a “people person” and makes friends easily. He is an active boy and his momma cant wait to get him home and keep him busy making friends and seeing the world.

TWO BOYS for the Johnson family — PA

JohnsonJohnson-2Jody Johnson is a single mother with three sons. In 2011, she committed to adopt Oksana from Russia. God intervened in miraculous ways to bring her to the other side of the world to meet the little girl for which she would promise to return. Five months later, she was ready to return to court when Russia halted all adoptions to U.S. families. While she has not given up on Oksana and hopes to return for her as soon as she is given the opportunity, she knows there are others whose needs must be met in the meantime. Christians are called by God to minister to orphans and through such ministering bring glory to God. Because they are specially drawn to orphans who are difficult to place due to special needs, the Johnsons hope to touch the lives of those who have little chance to find the love of Christ and a family. Though abandoned and broken in our sin, God, the Father, sent His Son to take the punishment we deserved, that we may become His children. He loves us when we are most unlovable and through our weakness, He shows His strength.

“Adoption is a real-life illustration of the gospel. It shows us how God transforms spiritual orphans into family members. He changes our names, identities, and families by His grace. Orphan care is acts of mercy that flow from the heart of one who has been changed by the gospel.” Tony Merida, “Orphanology”

The Johnsons know from experience that the road to adoption can be long and require great patience, but they are committed to the task and will follow as the Lord leads them. After inquiring with Oksana’s placing agency about other waiting children, Jody received and accepted a referral for a four year-old boy with some significant cognitive delays. About a week later, the agency mentioned an older boy, healthy, but difficult to place due to age. Having much experience with boys, she knew she needed to give this boy a home, too. To that end, now the adventure extends to another corner of Eastern Europe where God will make two special boys a part of their family. The Johnsons appreciate your prayers and would be happy to have you follow along with them as they blog their way through the process. Please pray that throughout this journey, God will open the hearts of those who may not know Him and cause them to want to know more about the Love that drives people to seek out and rescue orphan children the way that Jesus sought out and rescued us.

Alison has worked with children and adults with special needs in the past, including Down syndrome, and has always enjoyed it. One night, she had a dream that she and her sister were looking at a website of children for adoption with Down syndrome. When she woke, she did a search on her computer, and found Reece’s Rainbow. After years of looking at the site, and much encouragement from family and friends, she decided to give it a try! There have been many roadblocks in the process, but she has finally fallen in love with the little girl she feels was meant to be her daughter!

CALLIE for the Maples family — FL

Callie 2011photoJonathan and Sarah met on Mother’s Day 1999 and were married less than a year later. Almost from the start they knew that adoption was going to be the method they would use to grow their family. In 2005 they brought home Samuel from India and through an odd set of occurrences Ivy from China at the end of the same year. While on these trips they saw the huge need of the orphans looking for a forever family, and felt especially connected to children with special needs. So in 2006 they adopted Ian from China who was born with sever bilateral cleft lip and palate. In 2008 they felt the call to adopt again and brought home Iris, who has a hand deformity, from Guatemala. Most recently in 2009 Jonathan and Sarah adopted Grace, who has Down Syndrome, from Serbia.

Now Jonathan and Sarah are feeling the call again to adopt a child with Down Syndrome. They immediately fell in love with Callie from China and have started down the path to bring her home. In addition to being an amazing addition to their family she would be a wonderful companion to grow together with Grace.
