ADRIAN and ADRIANNA for the Canessa family — TN

Kayla and Gino have been happily married for 6 years and have been blessed with two biological children.

Adoption has been a long time dream for Kayla, often a topic of conversation with Gino, an open possibility. They were nervous about the whole process, but not enough to give up their mutual dream of having a big family. Kayla kept looking online, then, one day not long ago, she finally found two little siblings! Immediately sent their pictures to Gino. They were both amazed to see that these sweet little angels looked just like their bio kids… They fell in love!

Finding them was a wonderful surprise. Meaning that they didn’t quite have enough time to get ready. So now they are rushing to pay fees, gather a humongous amount of paperwork and raise the remaining amount of money fast enough.

Adoption is never easy peasy process, but they know in their hearts that this journey is gonna be one of the most important and rewarding things they could ever do. They keep working at it and counting the days until they can finally bring those sweet angels home!

EMMA JANE for the Kelley family — TN

emma-janeDaniel and Stacy have 5 children at home (Noah-7, Zoey-7, Eli-5, Selah-4, and Emma-3) and one daughter in Heaven. Daniel works for Nissan and Stacy homeschools. They enjoy their life out in the country and spending time outdoors.

They are perhaps considered experienced adoptive parents as Zoey and Selah were both adopted and have been home for a year. They experienced a miraculous homecoming with their girls, as Zoey arrived from China and Selah arrived from Congo on the exact same day. Their journey getting to that point was filled with years of waiting and heartbreak. But they serve a faithful God and they are amazed not only at the way their children came home but also in the way they have seamlessly blended into the family.

Even with their ‘hands full’ as everyone seems to say, they felt the call to go back for another child with Down syndrome. After seeing the children and the need first hand, they could not turn away. And after seeing Zoey and Selah blossom before their very eyes, their minds constantly went back to the untold numbers of children waiting in orphanages.

Then they saw her face. ‘Emma Jane’ was easy to say ‘yes’ to and they can’t wait to add her to their family. She is a jewel. A bright light. Pure joy. And they are thankful they get to be her forever family. All of the kids are so excited as well! So while they are not new to adoption and not naive to the challenges ahead, they also personally know the joy that awaits.

They are so thankful for the prayers as well as the emotional and financial support they receive along the way.

CODY and CAREN for the Simmons family — TN

CodycarenMark and Brenda Simmons have been married for twenty years and have five biological children ages ranging from 3 to sixteen. They have always had a heart for children and although having a large family had always been part of their plan, they had not considered that adoption was part of their life story. God was constructing other plans though, and had been working in their lives for many years preparing their hearts to love and care for others in need. They initially pursued helping children in need through the foster care system. After completing their last foster care class though, they came across the Reece’s Rainbow website quite by accident. They immediately felt as if they were being led in the direction of special needs adoption. They were both drawn to siblings, Cody and Caren, and became convicted to make these beautiful children part of their family. Mark and Brenda are blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who love and support their values and their desire to grow their family through adoption. God has always guided with love and faithfulness. Mark and Brenda and their children are so excited to be a part of Gods leading in this wonderful journey of adoption. Please help them bring Cody and Caren home soon!

KEELY for the Young family — TN

KeelyyoungShawn and Kara live in Memphis TN with their two beautiful daughters adopted from China. Shawn works at St. Jude children’s hospital by day and as an artist at night. Kara works from home as an artist. Their adoption story begins when they brought home Chandler in December 2012. In 2014 Perry joined the family. Suddenly life got very busy and with two fun feisty six year olds and the family seemed complete. That is until they saw a picture of a girl with intelligent eyes and a dazzling smile. Keely has Cerebral Palsy which affects her mobility. She will be soon be thirteen years old. For orphans, birthdays are not always happy occasions; if she is not adopted by fourteen she will lose forever her chance to have a family. When the family saw her profile on Reese’s rainbow they knew they would be going back to Asia. They are thrilled and cannot wait to bring their daughter and sister home.
