S for the Stearns family — ID

Brian, and Rebekah Stearns, have been married for 16 years and reside in Nampa, Idaho. Their family of 5 first learned about S, a teenaged special needs orphan, through friends of theirs who had hosted him for the summer of 2017. He desperately needs a family to adopt him—especially since he has been at risk of being institutionalized three times within the past year. The Stearns family is S’s last chance for adoption! They need your prayers and support.

The Stearns family has been SO blessed to get to know S through hosting, and he is truly part of their family; even though they have not officially adopted him yet! S calls Brian and Rebekah, “Mama” and “Papa.” And they call S their “son.” They stay connected to S and often exchange text messages and video chats with each other. During the summer of 2018, while the home study was being completed, the social worker got to meet S and see him with the Stearns family. The social worker explained that the Stearns family qualified to adopt TWO special needs children. The Stearns, prayed, and discussed it with their children, and with S, and it was a unanimous decision to pursue both the adoption of S and a special needs girl between the ages of 8 and 18. Only God knows who this precious girl will be, but everyone is excited to welcome her into the Stearns family, too! Thank you all, for your prayers and loving support of these adoptions!! God bless you!!
