GARRETT for the Dinn family — GA

When Clayton and Angie Dinn started dating and began talking about marriage adoption became part of those conversations. They hoped that God would allow them to add to their family one day through adoption. In 2000 they had their first child and then quickly after that added 2 more children through birth. In 2006, they felt that God was continuing to stir in their hearts a desire to adopt specifically from Asia. In 2008 they added their first child through adoption. This precious son had more special needs than what they had anticipated as well as institutionalized behaviors so they delved into doctor appointments, surgeries, and therapies. Between Angie’s degree in special education and now a child with special needs and emotional needs they knew God was doing something unique in their lives. One of their greatest joys is seeing this child meet milestones and conquer fears. In 2010 and 2012 they went on to add another son and daughter from Asia. It has been incredible to see how having siblings with special needs has impacted all of the children in the family. Their oldest is working toward being a nurse. Her sister would like to be a speech therapist. All of the kids have such tender hearts toward people with special needs. Their daughter from Asia has an intellectual disability and it has been exciting to watch her gain more independence with the support of her family and community services. It is because of this daughter that the Dinn family felt like God could be leading them to adopt a child that has Down syndrome a few years ago. During this time, they also met several families that have been blessed with children that have a diagnosis of Down syndrome, both biological children and adopted. They realized God was leading them to adopt again and that He had led them specifically to “Garrett”. Everyone in the Dinn family is excited about seeing him grow into an amazing young man and are looking forward to seeing him join their family! Thank you for partnering with them in adoption!

RUTH for the Durand family — GA

Chris and I met at college and married in 1993. We have 3 boys (Josh 22, Stephen 21, and Tyler 15). We thought our family was complete with two in college and one in high school. In November 2017 we began praying for some kids needing to be adopted. As we were praying for these children, we became curious about the term “aging out”. We became concerned about what happens to these children with disabilities if they did not get adopted by age 14.  After finding out that these kids with disabilities could not be adopted after age 14 our hearts saddened. We continued praying for these kids to get adopted but know the chances grow slimmer as they get older. God would just not let it rest with us. We felt we were to adopt a child close to aging out. With our ages of 52 and 56 and us having older children … it just seemed God was leading us to adopt a child who was aging out.

We decided to take steps toward adoption. We felt that if God did not want this for our family He would shut the door. So far, the door has not closed and we are excited about adopting a 12 year old little girl from Asia with Down syndrome.

Ethan for the Hornbuckle Family — GA

Larry and Angela met when Angela was still in high school and began dating several years later. Friendship blossomed into love and they married in 1993. Early on in their relationship they discussed their future plans for a family and decided that they would have at least one biological child but would also like to adopt at some point. They talked about the possibility of adopting a child with Down syndrome one day, since as a special education teacher Angela had always felt called to parent a child with special needs. Six years after getting married they had Holton, and for the next 9 years he was an only child. At that point, they realized that it was time to expand their family and they both agreed that it wasn’t important to them whether they brought any more children into the world, because there were plenty of kids who needed families and they would love them just as much whether or not they gave birth to them. In addition, they realized that there were many kids who were considered harder to place due to being older or having special needs. They wanted to provide a family for kids who may not otherwise have one. Their daughter Maili joined the family at the age of 4. She was born in China and was listed as having a congenital heart defect in addition to significant developmental delays due to hypoxia at birth. She brought a joy to their family that they had not even imagined possible, and two years later they returned to China to adopt another daughter. Callie was 6 years old at that time and only 8 months younger than Maili. She had a very rare heart condition but has thrived after having surgery. The girls quickly became inseparable and today these virtual twins are still the very best of friends. Now that the girls are almost teenagers, the Hornbuckles have decided that it is time to add to their joy once more by adopting a little boy with Down syndrome. The kids couldn’t be more excited about having a younger sibling to dote on, and Angela and Larry are ready to complete their family as they envisioned it almost 25 years ago. They feel particularly led to adopt a child with more significant medical and developmental disabilities who may have a harder time finding a family. In addition to Down Syndrome, Ethan has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (TOF) as well as tracheal and subglottic stenosis. He has a g tube and currently receives tube feedings.

Due to Ethan’s extensive medical needs, there will be increased medical expenses once he arrives home and they are trying to make sure that they are allowing for that in the monthly budget. Although they have the resources needed to raise this child, they do not yet have all of the resources they need to bring him home. Therefore they will have to rely on the understanding of grant selection committees and generous donors to help them come up with the final $10,000 or so they will need in order to bring this sweet boy home to his forever family in Georgia. The Hornbuckles believe that every child deserves a family regardless of their disability, and this little guy is no exception. They also believe that where God guides, He provides and they ask that you find it in your hearts to help Ethan come home to his forever family because they can’t wait to meet him!

HARPER GRACE for the Price Family — GA

Evan and Hope are high school sweethearts who have been together for 13 years and married for 7. Evan has been with the same company in sales since college and Hope is an Athletic Trainer at a local High School.

Hope always told Evan that she had dreamed of adopting a little girl from China since she was a young girl herself, but they never actually thought it would happen. Fast forward to 2013 and they were faced with the fact that they would not have biological children. They immediately knew that God was telling them Adoption was where He was taking them. Fast forward another 2 years and in May of 2015 they brought home their little girl Chandler through domestic adoption.

Hope found Reece’s Rainbow in 2016 and told Evan about the organization. She was always showing him children she saw listed and researched different countries and their adoption process. She told Evan she thought God was trying to tell her that this was the route they should take for their next child. Evan didn’t feel the same way to begin with. He had many worries and reservations about international adoption, but eventually he couldn’t deny God’s calling either and agreed that this was His plan. Hope came across Harper Grace’s file and immediately knew this was he child. It just so happens Chandler’s middle name is Grace as well so the Price’s knew it was meant to be.

The Price’s are so excited to bring this precious little girl home and watch her grow and thrive. Chandler is so excited to have a sister and tells everyone all about her and where she lives now.
