Shannon and her family live in Maryland. Shannon is mom to her son Alex and her daughter Chelsea. Chelsea was adopted at 11 years old and lived most of her life in an orphanage. Chelsea spent much of her life being considered blind and in a wheelchair. In a short few months home, she is flourishing, wearing glasses, learning, and there is much hope she will soon walk. She has brought so much joy to their family and is a true testament to what love can do for a child. Shannon has always intended to adopt again and is prayerfully hopeful that the child she has seen on Reece’s Rainbow will become her daughter. This family has stated they have always had a heart for adoption and bringing Chelsea home solidified the place adoption has in their life. Chelsea is a low vision child and the family hopes to adopt another low vision girl. Chelsea and Alex are both excited about the idea of a new sister. Reece’s Rainbow helped bring Chelsea home. The family is so grateful to work with Reece’s Rainbow again as they begin their journey to adopt their second daughter. Shannon and her children thank you for your kindness, support, and generosity in helping bring an child home to a loving forever family.
