PATRICK for the Romero family – MO

Please meet the Romeros. Teresa and Robert are the parents of two girls, a sixteen year old and a four year old. They are a family with strong faith. They always wanted to adopt, it was originally part of their family’s plan. However, they never felt financially secure enough to move forward. This past January Teresa was part of a mission trip to El Salvador. During the trip Teresa worked in very poor communities. The poverty was like nothing the family had previously experienced and Teresa was deeply distressed by the plight of the children. When she returned home, she shared her experiences with her family and they decided it was the right time to move forward with the adoption. The Romeros wanted a child that had special needs and over the age of 2, but also wanted to adopt in birth order so the child needed to be younger than their 4 year old toddler. They were ecstatic when they found the most adorable little guy, called “Patrick” on the agency profile. They inquired about him and had their doctor review his medical records. They were so excited to say “yes” to the adoption of Patrick. They quickly realized they would need to fundraise in order to make their dream a reality and have set up several fundraisers already.

The Romeros are totally committed to loving Patrick and making him part of their family. Please help the Romeros bring Patrick home.

KENNEDY for the Bouchard family — MO

kennedy-e1473918190496The Bouchard family is so excited to be adopting again!  They have prayed for years for some of the older little girls on Reece’s Rainbow to find their forever families, so when God opened the door for them to be able to go back, they were so excited to begin Kennedy’s adoption.  Kennedy will have two younger sisters who also have that very special extra chromosome!

Rick and Chante have been married for 18 years and live with their nine children on a farm in Missouri.  They have been blessed to be able to adopt children from Haiti, Ethiopia, and China, as well as having four biological children.

They love spending time outside on their farm, caring for the animals.  Their family also enjoys going to amusement parks, fishing, and playing board games together.  They are very involved in their church, and the whole family loves Sundays and Wednesdays, when they get to spend time in church together.  One of the things they love most about adoption in watching children blossom into all that God created them to be when they have the love of a family supporting them.  Everyone of their children adds something unique and special to their family, and they can’t wait to meet Kennedy!

They would love your prayers and support as they work to raise the money needed to bring Kennedy into their family.

PRISCILLA for the Koebel family — MO

Darrel and Shonette have been married for 28 ½ years. Darrel is retired AF, and is now in law enforcement. Shonette is a stay at home mom and homeschools five children who are still in school. They are active in First Baptist Church, in their city.

They have ten children, four biological and six adopted. They have always been led to adopt overseas. They finally took that leap of faith back in 2009. They started out to adopt one little girl and that fell threw. Then they picked another little girl, which could not be adopted because paper work wasn’t ready for her. In that entire process, they wanted to God to lead them to the one that was to be their daughter. Their agency sent them five more little girls. They prayed that whichever one was paper ready, was to be their daughter. In April 2010, they landed with their little girl from Ukraine, AnnaKae Hope. AnnaKae was weeks from being transferred. They knew AnnaKae was meant to be their daughter. They have been praying for years about adopting another one so AnnaKae could have a little sister.

They were praying about Priscilla on Reece’s Rainbow. Then Shonette heard she was going to be transferred in August. She knew it was time to jump again. God has called them to a place that a lot of people don’t want to go. Darrel and Shonette have a heart for orphans and know it’s their passion. They are rushing to get everything done, to get to Priscilla before she is transferred. They are excited about adding another little one to their family and can’t wait to get her home.
