Look past the pink, this is a BOY!
This tiny girl has spent a lot of time in the hospital. She needs a loving family to be by her side and help her receive top-notch care.
Their lives were forever changed when their youngest daughter was born with cerebral palsy and a host of other disabilities. They already had a passion for underprivileged children and orphans, and now they had a passion for children with disabilities. For years they had been trying to adopt domestically through the Foster Care system, but were pulled to look internationally after many years of roadblocks. They had always been open to adopting a child with Down Syndrome, but had never pursued such a child.
After watching a Gotcha video of a family adopting a child with Down Syndrome from Reece’s Rainbow, they searched the site and fell in love with Yulia, known now as Frannie Joy! All of the children are so excited to have a baby sister and the family feels privileged to be chosen to take on another special little girl! Finances are going to be the biggest challenge during this process, but they know God has called them to this adoption and that He will provide the funds!

The boys live together in the orphanage. They both walk, run, play with toys, participate in group activities and attend mainstream classes at school. In the videos they answers questions. Raymond uses mainly “yes” and “no” but he clearly understands what he’s asked and answers the questions appropriately. Evan is much more verbal. In the videos, Evan counts to 10 and Raymond counts to 5 . They are saying the name of their teachers at school (they’re mainstreamed) and who are their friends there. They are also seen writing and drawing. Raymond writes several letters on the paper.
Additional photos and videos from September 2014 are available.
Because we only have this file for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found.

Fast forward two years and here they are again, ready and eager to embark on another journey to a different country for another child in need. They are again hopeful and trusting completely in the providence of the Almighty to bring this adoption to fruition. The three Daughton boys are excited about having a little sister and Nadia will have a small army of her own to command when she finally arrives. They will love, help, protect, cherish, and watch over her as big brothers are supposed to do. Many plans have already been made as the boys have begun to explore creative ways to help her over come her physical challenges. There is no doubt that she will receive the lion’s share of attention in this household, but no one is complaining.
Nadia is a beautiful, charming, and sweet little girl who is making great strides in her ability to walk, speak, and even learn English; she just needs more one-on-one time and attention. She will benefit enormously from having her own home and family with resources that will help her grow and overcome her less than ideal start in life. She is a radiant child who needs the hope of a family and the shared love of Christ so that her warmth and enthusiasm never fades. The family is eager to bring her home and know that her presence will have a profound and radical impact on each of them.
The family humbly asks for your prayerful support as they continue along this exciting path that God has laid before them.

Keagan is a sweet, young boy with a cleft condition. He may require multiple surgeries. He is able to track objects and move both eyes freely. Keagan’s growth rate and developmental are good. He loves music and will move around to the music. He babbles to his caretakers and smiles at them. He also likes to wave his arms. This precious child is waiting for a family who can help him access the medical care he needs so that he can continue to progress and have a happy life.
Please keep Cliff in your thoughts and prayers. He has a fighter’s heart, and we know he will bloom just like his sister once he’s home and experiencing the love of family for the first time in his life.

This little sweetheart, Timmy, is 7 years old. His personality is described as active, outgoing, and fairly restless. He gets along well with others in his orphanage but is closest to his caretakers. He loves to sing, play with blocks, and eat apples and eggs! Timmy has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and is noted to have intellectual delays, but just look at that sweet smile! And with all of his energy and personality, he does not seem like the type to back away from the challenges that his diagnosis may bring! There is a video of him waving goodbye and blowing a kiss. Are you the family that will catch his kiss?
Boy, born Oct 2012
