AYLA for the Lindblom family — CT

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Jon and Ellen have been married for 27 years and God has richly blessed them with 10 children; 9 biological and 1 adopted. Ten years ago, their 8th child was born with Down Syndrome. It was a difficult and dark time between both trying to meet the overwhelming physical needs of their baby as well as working through numerous feelings of grief and fear related to raising an “imperfect” child.

But our God has a beautiful way of reshaping hearts and minds and “working all things together for His good.” About four years ago, after being made aware of literally thousands of children abandoned in China with Down Syndrome, Jon and Ellen began to pursue their first adoption. In early 2017, the Lindbloms welcomed home Naomi, a sweet four year old girl with DS from China. They have once again sensed God’s prompting and the whole family is very excited to be bringing Ayla Hope home to become part of the Lindblom family!
