BETHANY and ALIVEA for the Rees family — MI

Timm and Tabatha Rees met in High school and started dating in the summer of 1998. They never looked back from there. In 18 years of marriage, they have had 8 biological children. Through it all, they always talked about wanting to adopt “eventually.”

In August of 2014, an event happened that would change them profoundly. This is when their precious little girl, Faith would be lost to stillbirth. Having never really gotten the chance to know their little girl, they found themselves asking, “did she know we loved her?” Struggling to deal with this question, they eventually started to notice all of the medically fragile children on Reece’s rainbow and found themselves asking the same question; do these kids have anyone who they know loves them?

Soon after, in October of 2015, their son, Trevor was born with Cerebral Palsy. This would catapult the Rees family into the world of special needs. Watching and helping Trevor grow and learn over the next three years would give them a passion for special needs kiddos and the confidence that they could handle a child with special needs.

Soon enough, Tabatha would see a post on Facebook asking if anyone would be willing to adopt Alivea before she ages out of the system. She knew right away that this was her little girl. She showed the videos and pictures to Timm and asked about his interest, expecting some form of “not yet,” but instead, he replied, “let’s pray about it.” They did so for several days and realized that yes, God was leading them to adopt this precious little girl.

Won’t you please consider joining them in prayer and support for these amazing girls?
