CLYDE for the Davis family — LA

Gary Wayne and Dee have been married for 25 years and have raised 7 older children and 5 younger adopted children still at home. They are an older couple and also grandparents to 17 grandchildren.

Once the Davis’ Family was told their family was like a box full of Animal Crackers.  Inside the box you will find a few lions, a tig~ger or two, one big elephant, one tall giraffe and several wild monkeys. Each family member is so different but when you blend them all together and you have a box full of love. Some people do not understand that some families are created differently than others.  Every child is a gift from our Lord and we must protect and love these children. The Davis’ Family is a big supporter and advocate for adoption.

In adoption there is the paperwork on top of paperwork and then there is the cost of adopting. Adoption is costly yet the price of a child is priceless. Through much prayers and support mountains can be moved. And the Davis family is moving mountains for this one child. No child should be without a family to love them and the Davis’ Family has decided to step forward.

After completing their last adoption, the Davis’ knew that there was still love in their heart for one more. Immediately they knew in their hearts just which child it was. One little boy Reece’s Rainbow had listed for 4 long years. On Reece’s Rainbow he is listed as Clyde. Being that little Clyde is only 4 years old he has waited since a baby to be adopted. Clyde had been sitting in an a orphanage watching as other children were adopted. And daily Clyde has been over looked so many times. Clyde like most of his friends wants a family and yet no one stepped up till now. This little guy so full of sunshine and a smile that would melt hearts finally has a family to come bring him home. Like most little boys full or energy and so much love to give in return he deserves his chance for a family.

With the help of Reece’s Rainbow Clyde has found his family.  Now that he has a mother and a father traveling for him they will be working hard to compile their paperwork. Now he who will have a family to hold his small hand and tuck him into his very own bed at night.

Many children with Clyde’s illnesses are transferred into an adult setting after age at five years. Instead of a birthday cake and presents he will be transferred. He will be mixed into an adult setting and it would be harder for little Clyde to find a family.

Sometimes we take the small things for granted like buying your child a box of Animal Crackers. But sometimes for a child in an orphanage many children die daily from not having enough to eat. The Davis’ Family ask for your prayers, love and support during their journey in bringing Clyde home. Please follow their adoption blog and share their posts as they work to move mountains to
bring their new son home.

LAYLA for the Manuel Family — LA

layla-1Michael and Katie Manuel are proud parents to 5 (almost 6) amazing children. They started their family about 12 years ago when they welcomed home their first baby girl. Through the years they continued to have 2 more biological children. As they grew their family they never thought having 6 children, both through biology and adoption, was the journey they would take. But they knew all along they would adopt one day. Katie, has always had adoption on her heart even as a young girl. Both Michael and Katie share a heart for children with special needs and adopted their son, who was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect through domestic adoption. They continued to grow their family through adoption and welcomed home another son from Asia a few years later. Feeling like their family was complete, but still desiring to make a difference in the lives of orphans, the Manuel family decided to host a special 12 yr old girl over the Christmas holidays. Katie states “We saw her picture and knew she was special, we had no idea why we chose this specific girl, but we knew we were supposed to”. This amazing girl is known as “Layla” on Reece’s Rainbow. She is 12 years old and rocks an extra chromosome! Knowing her country has an aging out rule, they knew how important it would be to advocate for this sweet girl to find a family before she turned 14. She had a ticking clock on her future. The Manuel’s completely stepped into this process with Advocate only intentions. They have a special place in their heart for children with down syndrome and telling the world how amazing these kids can be. They had a plan to share her story daily so that the world could see how amazing she is, and she could find a forever family during her time in the U.S. Little did they know, she would steal their hearts. From day one, both the family and this sweet girl made a life changing connection. She filled their home with love and laughter every single day. Through much prayer and discussion, they knew what the right decision would be. Sweet girl was their daughter! This girl is a treasure! They could not imagine her fate if she was to remain in her birth country. Although it is apparent that she is well loved, because of her special needs, she would go to a special needs home at the age of 18. They also found out that she would be the very first child with Down syndrome to be adopted from this orphanage! They are so excited that a life in America is so bright and beautiful and full of opportunity for this sweet girl despite her needs. The Manuel family was so sad for their 4 weeks together to come to an end, but have great hope they will see each other again soon. They now have their daughter’s picture hanging on the wall. 3 sons and 3 daughters take their place in the frames of their home.

Michael and Katie are trusting the Lord for provision to bring their daughter back home. Funding another adoption was not the game plan for this family, but they know the Lord will provide through overtime, fundraising, and grants. Any support through prayer or monetary donation is highly appreciated.
