DORABELLE for the Hickey family — IL

Robert and Kelly Hickey are High School sweethearts who started dating at age 16 and have been inseparable ever since! They spent 8 years together prior to their marriage supporting one another as they developed their careers and built a home together. Robert is a hardworking, family man who works as a mechanic, lays concrete, and plows. He also spends much of his time working on their new home in which they will build their family in. Kelly is a passionate special educator who went on to pursue Behavior Analysis and spends her days working hard to advocate for those with disabilities. Although Kelly has her dream job, she knows her true purpose in life is Motherhood. While Robert and Kelly are still newly married, they have been highly anticipating the start of their new family. Since early on in their relationship, the couple had discussed growing their family through adoption, however, they didn’t know when would be the right time. The couple had decided they would start by pursuing foster care but one night as they were preparing to send the application, they had an overwhelming feeling that God was leading them to a specific adoption. Not long after, Kelly came across a photo of a beautiful little boy, and instantly knew that he was the one waiting for them. The couple worked tirelessly to bring their son home from an orphanage to the love and family that he deserved, but unfortunately did not make it in time. While the loss of their son was completely devastating, they knew they had to continue to pursue an adoption.

Robert and Kelly prayed for their son to guide them to another worthy child. After several months they were finally connected to a little girl who completely stole their hearts. The love was instant, just like it was for their little boy!

The Hickeys, along with their families and friends, are beyond excited to bring their daughter home! Their adoption journey has been long and difficult but with everyone’s support they know God will make this possible for their growing family. Robert and Kelly are incredibly appreciative of any financial, emotional, or spiritual support that you can provide.
