CAMILA for the Patterson family — TX

 photo fwbutton150.png camilaHi! We’re the Pattersons. We’ve been married for 23 years (Wow, time flies!) and currently have five children. Our two oldest are in college, our next two are in high school and our youngest is in fifth grade. Four years ago we adopted our youngest, Joseph. The past four years have been challenging but SO rewarding.

For over 2 years we have wanted to adopt again. We had been in process with another country when the adoption could not move forward. We were heartbroken. When we saw Camila’s picture we were so excited! We had been praying about who our next child would be and hoping that we could adopt a little girl with Arthrogryposis. Joseph was born with Arthrogryposis and we have become quite familiar with the ins and outs of the medical procedures and therapies that are necessary. So, when we inquired about Camila and were accepted to pursue her adoption we were thrilled! Despite the unknowns, we are ready to plow through the paperwork to bring our little girl home as soon as possible!!

We appreciate your prayers and support so much as we begin this journey.

NOELANI for the Holt family — TX

noelani-1Jacob and Sarah had that “love at first sight” moment 13 years ago at Dallas Baptist University and never stopped living the fairy tale. Jacob is a Vice President at Alliant Insurance Services and Sarah is a fitness bootcamp instructor / stay at home mom with their 6 children ages 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 10. After the adoption of #6, they knew they had room in their hearts and home for one more and started looking at Reece’s Rainbow for the perfect child with “something extra.” The whole family is so excited to welcome their new sister, soon to be named “Noelle”!

ANNA and DOLLY for the Graham family — TX

 photo fwbutton150.pnganna-2016dolly-2017Hi there! We are Chris and Elizabeth Graham. Newlyweds. Mama and Daddy to Worth. Adoption advocates. Chipotle lovers. A musician and an artist.

In early 2015, I (Elizabeth) was living the single lady life when I had the craziest dream. In my dream, I was marrying the love of my life, and there right next to us was my precious, adopted child. It was breathtaking and vividly real.

By mid-2015, I was home study approved and eagerly learning the world of international adoption. After setback and heartbreak, I finally met my son, Worth, in May 2016, and he was in my arms forever on October 17, 2016.

Somewhere in the middle of that beautiful chaos, I met Chris and immediately knew he was the man of my dreams. Chris asked me to be his wife right before we traveled together to pick up my son, now our son. Loving Worth together has been the greatest joy of our lives. Some days are hard and messy and full of tears, but every day is overflowing with love.

Our prayer as a couple is that our love be so abundant that we have plenty to share with the world; now is the time to share our love with two daughters, two sisters for Worth. After months of praying and advocating for “Anna,” it became clear that she was supposed to join our family. Right now, she is locked away in a mental institution for adult men. Soon, she will be ours, forever home in our family.

With all signs and dreams pointing to adopting two girls, our hearts were led to “Dolly.” Without a doubt, she is our missing piece! “Anna” and “Dolly” are already in our hearts. Now we just need to get them home!

Thank you for being a part of this beautiful story. I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.

JOHN, JAKE, and JARED for the Clements family — TX

We are Robert and Jennifer Clements. We live in Texas and have been married for almost four years. We both have a special love for children and a heart for serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We have each been involved in our nephews and nieces lives growing up and have served in children’s ministry at our church as well as doing VBS with kids on mission trips to South Texas, Cuba, South Carolina, Guatemala to name a few places across the world. We have been unable to conceive children naturally, yet both have a strong desire to grow our family. Adoption is prevalent on both sides of our immediate families and something we talked about while dating. We were introduced to an orphan hosting organization through Robert’s older sister and about a year ago we learned the story of 4 precious boys in need of a family. They had been living in an orphanage in Eastern Europe for over 6 years. We hosted the 3 younger boys (the oldest has been adopted by another family) for 5 weeks last summer and they captured our hearts. We were told a story about the youngest a couple of Christmases ago who all he wanted was “joy”, “love”, and “peace”. He told us our family gave him joy, love, and peace. We have felt God’s hand orchestrating the entire process of Him choosing us to give these sweet, active boys a family they deserve and to love them unconditionally as He loves us.
