MATEO for the Van Duyn family — CA

MateoChris and Grace first found out about Mateo through an American couple they knew who were living in Asia and short-term fostering different children. When they saw Mateo and heard his story, their hearts were moved towards him. They had never planned to adopt a child with special needs, let alone an almost 5 year old with severe hydrocephalus, but when they met Mateo (online), all that changed.

Chris and Grace began praying for Mateo daily and getting updates on him often. God called them to be the ones to adopt this precious boy. So after many months and lots and lots of paperwork, Mateo is almost ready to go to “Merica!” ( as he calls it).

Grace and Chris have raised 4 children, all whom are grown and out of the house. While they know there is a long journey of work and healing ahead, they have no fear, only love and excitement to see how God will work. Mateo’s life up until now has been miracle after miracle-there is no reason to believe they will stop now!

Three Children for the Zuelsdorf family – CA

2015_Bulgaria_Zuelsdorf NicolaiRichard and Ella have committed their lives to adopting and raising children to be godly men and women. They have thirteen wonderful children and are returning to Bulgaria to adopt three more. Richard and Ella consider adoption to be their ministry. Their goal is to show the world that all children deserve a mom and dad, and that special needs children in particular bestow a special blessing from God. What better way is there to show that all people are created in God’s image and worthy of honor and respect than adopting a special needs child? What better way is there to teach us patience and perseverance, and to step outside our comfort zone? In pursuit of this goal, Richard Familyand Ella have purchased a large foreclosed home on 11.5 acres of land. They are filling the home with children. They believe children are happy and healthy when able to work and play outdoors. And there is plenty of opportunity. They have chickens, ducks, cats, and a dog, as well as a very large garden and an orchard. There is enough to do that everyone is involved. No job is too small! What started out as a ministry of Richard and Ella has now become the family ministry. All the kids are involved in the upcoming adoption and are excited to have new brothers and a sister.

Everyone is extremely happy to have found three wonderful children. Catherine and Mark are an older brother and sister pair who are very happy to be adopted together. Richard and Ella are also excited about adopting Nicolai, a two-year old boy with Down Syndrome. They have wanted to adopt a child with Down Syndrome for several years. The last time they went to Bulgaria, they were blessed to adopt a child with Noonan Syndrome. Now they have a chance to show the world that children with Down Syndrome are a blessing to all.
