CARA and WANIYA for the Grandt family — OR

Michael and Elizabeth are eagerly waiting to bring Cara home! Michael comes from a family of 14 siblings, and has always wanted a house full of children. Together, Michael and Elizabeth now have 8 children. They both serve at their local church, where Michael helps lead worship. Theirs is a house full of music and worship. Elizabeth is a full time mother, and home-schools their children on their small farm in Oregon. She has had a longstanding desire and call on her life to adopt a child with special needs, and has been patiently waiting for the time God would open that door in her life. Several months ago, the Lord began leading Michael and Elizabeth down a meandering path to prepare for adoption. Doors seemed to open and close, but each bend in the road only reinforced their confidence that God was leading them. They began a homestudy to prepare for a child they had not found yet.

Finally, when they saw Cara’s profile on Reese’s Rainbow, they both fell in love. They found the little girl who had been waiting for them! Cara is an amazing, shining little girl from eastern Europe. Michael, Elizabeth and all of their children are excitedly and impatiently waiting to bring Cara home. Their home is overflowing with love and affection for this little girl. Please, won’t you consider investing in making this family whole?

KORA for the McAuliffe family — OR

 photo fwbutton150.pngKristina has been a natural caregiver her whole life. She is a single mom to three wonderful boys. Her youngest son is blessed with Williams Syndrome. Kristina has been a licensed daycare provider for 15 years. During this time she has cared for many children with sever special needs. She’s taken care of children with Cerebral Palsey, Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, ASD, and of course Williams Syndrome. Kristina has always welcomes these children with open arms when other daycares turn them away. Kristina loves being a daycare provider because she’s earning a living and home for her own children’s needs. It’s the best of both worlds. Kristina knows the love of adoption because her mom was adopted. Most of Kristina’s family has passed away. Losing them so young has left Kristina with a deep passion for family. Kristina always knew she wanted to adopt. After seeing a friend fundraising through Reece’s Rainbow she began asking questions. Her friend introduced her to the profiles on Reece’s Rainbow. Kristina spent weeks reading hundreds of profiles. She knew she wanted to adopt but how? She had little savings, she was single. She just felt it was impossible. God kept whispering you can do it. She prayed about making the best adoption decision for her family. Kristina has no idea how she’s going to raise the money for this adoption. She has already doubled her work hours. She knows it’s going to take hard work. She is truly jumping in on faith.

ISAIAHU for the Klopp family — OR

 photo fwbutton150.pngisaiahDuane & Kimber are not young parents. They have 4 children (10 yrs-31 yrs) & 14 grandchildren (11 months – 17 yrs). On any given day if you were to visit the Klopp house you would find many children at their home. They are not new to the special needs either, as they have twin grandsons with Williams Syndrome. Kimber also has a family member with Cerebral Palsy & her oldest brother was born with several birth defects.

One evening Kimber was on Facebook & saw a post shared from someone who had grown up in the same small town she had. His daughter & her family were working as missionaries in an orphanage. The blog was on Wide-Awake Family titled, “Fighting for my babies.” It was a night with little sleep & lots of tears after reading the blog. Kimber asked to join Wide-Awake Family on their Facebook page where she also learned about Reece’s Rainbows. She tired to hide the feelings she had for one of those precious little boys. She shed many tears over the next several months every time she thought about that little boy she had seen in the pictures & by now she had also seen a few videos with him in them as well. She went to other adoption pages but she found herself always looking for that “one” little boy.

For several months their prayers were for Isaiahu to find his forever family. They’ve shared many posts to family & friends about him & his need for a family. Then on Friday, March 4, 2016 there was another blog written, “Fatherless Friday.” This is when God let them know his family were none other than them.

Kimber & Duane had talked about adoption several times over the years. They decided to investigate the process of adoption & more specifically on this one little boy they feel is “the missing piece” in their family.

Please pray for Isaiahu’s adoption, that all will go smoothly & quickly so that they may bring this little boy home into a family full of love & security. The Klopps know that this little boy is worth it! The family is hoping to raise everything they need to cover adoption expenses between now & the beginning of September. They would be grateful for your support, either financially or through prayer, as they go after their little boy.

Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.
