A Child for the Bradley Family — FL

Shannon and Elizabeth always expected that adoption would one day be a part of how their family grew. They just weren’t sure exactly what it would look like or when. Shannon was adopted into a loving home at 17 days old and adoption plays a big role in Elizabeth’s family too. The oldest of 4 girls, all 3 of Elizabeth’s younger sisters and their husbands have adopted children. The number of grandchildren on that side of the family currently number 14… with 8 having been adopted through a combination of international, US domestic, and foster-to-adopt. It was through Elizabeth’s youngest sister and brother-in-law that the Bradleys were first introduced to and older girl when she was hosted by them in the summer of 2016. After that summer hosting, Elizabeth found herself regularly thinking about and praying for this girl. In time, she and Shannon began praying about adopting her. Their adoption journey has been one of multiple twists and turns involving lots of research, education, and talking with other adoptive families (especially who had adopted older girls). In July 2017 the Bradleys enjoyed meeting and spending time with her when she was hosted again by Elizabeth’s sister and brother-in-law. Now Shannon and Elizabeth and their 5 year old daughter are excited to be adding a “big sister” to their family.

ELORA for the Joy family — FL

Kevin and Marta have been married for 15 and are blessed with 3 amazing kids – Greyson (16), Kasia (13) and our youngest, Mila (3) who was adopted from China about a year ago. God had opened their hearts during their 1st adoption process to Down Syndrome and Mila became part of their family in 2016.

They had been sponsoring multiple children with heart defects, one of whom was Elora and they fell absolutely in love. They hoped there was a chance she would someday be theirs. Despite the doctors saying Elora was too old and that she was inoperable — thousands prayed and fought for this girl! Elora’s surgery was a great success.

The next hurdle would be getting her orphanage to write her file. Elora’s agency fought for a year to get her file to be written. They waited and waited and finally their family sent in a photo of with Mila to show the orphanage that children with Down Syndrome are loved, wanted and cherished dearly. After 9 months of pleading and prayer they received a phone call — Elora’s file has indeed been prepared! They are so very excited to welcome Elora Meredith Joy home!

They are beyond excited and are doing everything they can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into their home. If you’re reading this, then you’re likely thinking about helping them bring their Elora home. For that, they are forever grateful and want to thank you for partnering with them in this amazing new adventure! They don’t take your support for granted, no matter how big or small the donation. Thank you in advance!

DARIA and DANIIL (Emma and Micah) for the Cornish Family

daria2007cornishdaniilUKRAINE

It’s hard to believe that we went from 2 to 4 just a little while ago as everything has adjusted better and smoother than we could have ever imagined!  Emma and Micah are a perfect fit from God for our family and we know the miracles that brought them to us are the first of many to come for our family.  Both children are learning to sit, express their wants, and know that their needs willbe fulfilled.  Kristopher and Brianna love their new “babies” and   have taken to them so well.  A little too well sometimes!  We are absolutely in love and cannot imagine life without all four of our little blessings.   I am in awe of each of their accomplishments and wait expectantly for what God has for our future together.
