EMMA for the Parkinson family — VA

Mark and Rachel Parkinson have been happily married 16 years. We have three beautiful children.. Christian, Naomi and Ella. We have a fun farmette where we enjoy all of our animals and plenty of fresh air!

Adoption has been on Rachel’s heart since she was a little girl…she dreamt of having her own orphanage one day. As time has gone by and prayers for direction made, the Lord opened their eyes to the needs of the orphans of Eastern Europe. Thus has begun our amazing journey leading us to commit to a beautiful little girl “Emma”. We feel so blessed to be called to bring her into our home and call her our own……she is in a very tough place and we are raising funds to bring her home as soon as possible!

MARY for the Nalle family — VA

maryRob and Julia Nalle have been happily married for 24 years, and have two biological sons: 22-year-old Benjamin and 18-year-old Elijah. They brought home their first adopted son, Aaron, in 2010. That first adoption turned out to be as life-changing for Rob and Julia as it was for Aaron; for it opened their eyes to the suffering of institutionalized orphans all over the world. Aaron’s institution was the saddest place Rob and Julia had ever seen, filled with lovable boys who didn’t deserve what was happening to them. The Lost Boys of Aaron’s world had no stimulation of any kind. They wasted their days in gloomy sheds— doing nothing, seeing and hearing nothing, idly waiting for the next meal or snack time to arrive. The sight made Rob and Julia want to help more of them find homes. Since bringing Aaron home, they have done their best to raise awareness and funds for special needs orphans overseas.

Their second adoption came in 2014, when they added John to their family. Though Aaron and John came from different regions and different families, they had the same name (Ivan), similar diagnoses and similar stories of abandonment and loss. Fortunately, John’s institution was far better than Aaron’s. Even so, it was more proof that any orphanage is a hard place to grow up.

After much prayer and consideration, Rob and Julia are adopting again. A little girl has need of a family, and the family with four sons has need of a little sister.

NINA for the Englert Family — VA

Karen is a licensed professional counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist who has been working with children and families for over 20 years now. Through her career plans have progressed over time and even is able to run her private practice from her home now, there is something missing in her life — a child. She expected to be married with children of her own by now, but when life didn’t work out that way, Karen set her sights on choosing to offer a forever home to an older waiting child who has never had parents to call her own.

Karen began her search for a child who would best fit into her family and feels that God led her to “Nina,” a 12 year old girl from Eastern Europe, who has spent her entire life since she was six months old in the foster care system. Nina is described as a very caring, grateful, generous and sensitive child who also loves animals and just recently told her foster mother that she “really wants a dog!” Karen has adopted four rescue dogs that she uses in her therapy work with clients! Nina is also very excited about being adopted!

Given her professional background working with tough adolescents, Karen is uniquely prepared to help Nina transition as smoothly as possible to a new home and country. What Karey does need help with, however, is the daunting task of raising enough funds to cover the formidable fees required for international adoption. Your prayers and contributions are deeply appreciated and would enable this dream to happen! Thank you, and may God bless you!
