Follow the Darrow family’s adoption journey on their blog at  iveyrock.wordpress.com

n (Ray)and Amber (Alex) have been married 7 years.  They are blessed with 3 biological kids.  Their oldest Ian is almost 6.  He is sensitive, intense and passionate about everything, and loves to take things apart and figure out how they work.  Chava is almost 4.  She loves gymnastics and taking careful care of her dolls, including regular diaper changes.  Micah is almost 2.  He loves whatever his older siblings are doing, but most of all he loves trains and helping mommy and daddy in the kitchen by stirring and tasting.  Ray works in IT at Dell, Inc.  Alex takes good care of the kids at home full time, and also is starting to homeschool Ian.

 

Ray and Alex were completely surprised when the pieces starting very quickly falling in to place to adopt.  Alex had shown Ray a waiting child on RR that had caught her eye, when he surprisingly responded that they could consider adopting.  After a week or two of much discussing and dreaming they formally started down the path to grow their family.  They have felt a particular affinity to HIV+ kids, and look forward to bringing Max and Lena home where proper nutrition and medical care can make a world of difference in their prognosis.

ANGEL & MILO for the Dahlen family–AL

The Dahlen family lives in Birmingham, AL.  Michael is a mechanical engineer, and Brandy homeschools the children, teaches at a local university, and also volunteers her time working with exchange students, including students from Russia and Ukraine.  The couple has lived outside of the country and love to travel and learn about different cultures.  Their biological children are Nathan (13), Anna Faith (7), Samuel (5), Abigail (forever 2), and Eli (7 months).  Abigail was hit by a car and killed 7 months ago.  This tragedy was unexpected and very painful to the family, but as a family, the Dahlen’s have refused to allow Abigail’s tragic death to prevent preceding with their calling to adopt.  Michael and Brandy have both felt called to adopt since they were married.  Both have read and followed the blogs on Reece’s Rainbow for a long time and have dreamed of their own opportunity to adopt.  After thoroughly praying over a sweet little Eastern European girl, they finally decided to listen to that call and pursue adoption.  The children are thrilled to welcome a sister.  Although this sister will not replace the one they lost, they feel this adoption journey will be a beautiful legacy left by Abigail–a legacy of Hope and of love, not of destruction.    The Dahlen family lives in Birmingham, AL.  Michael is a mechanical engineer, and Brandy homeschools the children, teaches at a local university, and also volunteers her time working with exchange students, including students from Russia and Ukraine.  The couple has lived outside of the country and love to travel and learn about different cultures.  Their biological children are Nathan (13), Anna Faith (7), Samuel (5), Abigail (forever 2), and Eli (7 months).  Abigail was hit by a car and killed 7 months ago.  This tragedy was unexpected and very painful to the family, but as a family, the Dahlen’s have refused to allow Abigail’s tragic death to prevent preceding with their calling to adopt.  Michael and Brandy have both felt called to adopt since they were married.  Both have read and followed the blogs on Reece’s Rainbow for a long time and have dreamed of their own opportunity to adopt.  After thoroughly praying over a sweet little Eastern European girl, they finally decided to listen to that call and pursue adoption.  The children are thrilled to welcome a sister.  Although this sister will not replace the one they lost, they feel this adoption journey will be a beautiful legacy left by Abigail–a legacy of Hope and of love, not of destruction.
