Chelsea Qi for the Regan family — MD

Chelsea Qi (3)Shannon lives in Maryland with her 14 year old son Alex. Alex is her pride and joy. After four miscarriages, and divorce, she still knew more children were meant for her family. She has been drawn to adoption since she was a little girl. Shannon grew up with physical disability in her family and knows first hand the difference love and support and good care can make in someone’s life. When she saw Chelsea-Qi’s profile, there was no doubt it was time to get the house ready for a little sister for Alex. Shannon is anxious and ready to meet Chelsea and show her all of the wonderful things Annapolis has to offer. God has called Shannon to adopt and specifically children with special needs. Waiting now is no different than the nine months she waited for her son to be born. Chelsea will be so loved and cared for and encouraged to live this beautiful life in the way she dreams. The Regan family (including Chelsea) is forever grateful for all prayer and donations in support of this adoption.

ANDERSON for the Linke family — MD

AndersonMarkus and Sarah Linke met at church 11 years ago and have now been married for 8 years. A lot has happened in their 8 years of marriage; from experiencing miscarriages, to dealing with infertility, to the adoption of their miracle baby Hope in 2013.

In the beginning of their relationship, long before they experienced infertility, Markus and Sarah realized they had a common desire to adopt. And in 2013, less than 2 years after they experienced the heartache of miscarriages, their baby girl Hope practically fell into their laps. She is by far the biggest blessing in their lives. In 2015, when Hope was 2 years old, they saw the profile of a little boy with special needs and decided to try to adopt again. But just as they were nearing the end of their home study, the foster family decided to adopt the little boy.  So they decided to put adoption on hold for a little while. Late in 2016, they saw “Anderson’s” profile on Reece’s Rainbow, a little boy with special needs  available for adoption. Yes, the thought of the adoption falling through again crossed their minds. There is no guarantee in adoption; there are always risks. But they knew they had to try again! They have room in their hearts and home for more children, and Hope is so very excited to be a big sister!

Markus and Sarah feel so blessed and are thrilled to be on this adoption journey! They would greatly appreciate your prayers and welcome any financial support as they work hard to bring their son home as quickly as they can.

MARCUS for the Turner family — MD

 photo fwbutton150.pngOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Turner Family would like to introduce you to a very special little boy.  This is their child, Marcus!

Although they do not know Marcus yet, Carl and Martha are adopting him from Eastern Europe. What they do know about Marcus is this:

He has never known the warm and loving embrace of a mother, or the joy of a piggy-back ride from a father. He doesn’t know what it feels like to be tucked in and kissed goodnight, warm and safe in a caring home. He has yet to receive full medical attention, proper, nutritious food, a childhood that allows him to be a child and an environment where he can thrive and flourish and reach his full potential. He needs a loving family the most.

The Turners cannot wait to bring Marcus home, to hold him in our arms, to read stories with him, to watch him play with his big sister, to take him to Sunday School, and always provide a hand for him to hold as he grows. No words can capture the true joy and excitement we feel as we anticipate the blessing of his presence in our home.

Carl and Martha would like to invite you to be a part of our adoption. They have two goals, the first is to create a community of friends, family and neighbors, locally and globally, who are ready and excited to welcome our Marcus into their lives and will commit to pray for our family over the next few months. The 2nd goal is to raise funds to bring Marcus home. Thank you for joining the Turners in this journey both in prayer and in financial support.
