Leah is a lifelong Navy sailor who grew up as a dependent and is now active duty. When she was a young girl living in Hawaii, her stay-at-home RN mother fostered several children under 2 who had special needs for a few months and one at a time while they were between more permanent homes. Even though she was only 5 years old at the time, she fell in love with a baby named Emily whose smile she can still remember and was old enough to understand that adopting meant adding a child who didn’t come out of my mommy’s tummy. Since then, adoption has been at the forefront of her mind when it comes to adding kids to a family of her own.

In 2015 while stationed on a ship, her church hosted an adoption agency that talked about older child adoption. They told her that even single women who work full time on a Navy ship can adopt. Leah knew that her time was coming when she would add to her family of one.

In January of 2019, a friend shared the Reece’s Rainbow page of a girl who was aging out and Leah felt the tug on her heart. She began prayerfully considering adoption in the near future and knew it was almost time. Almost one exact year later, another girl with the same special needs was shared to Facebook by a friend who had already completed an adoption for a child on Reece’s Rainbow and was working on her second. Leah knew it was time and began her home study that month.

First time international adoption can be a long and difficult process and the child that Leah is working toward adopting doesn’t have much time! Any kind of help is welcomed and appreciated and thanks to all who follow this journey to make the Davis family go from one to two!

James and Colleen met when Colleen was freshman and James was a junior, in college. We started dating five years after that and we married 2012. We found out in 2014 we couldn’t have children biologically. As it broke our hearts, we immediately knew we were meant to adopt. Before we got married, we spoke about the possibility of fostering and adoption, as Colleen knew as a young girl she wanted to adopt. At that time, we found Reece’s Rainbow, and instantly we found our son. We adopted Jacob in 2016 from Bulgaria and he will be 7 in July. Four years later, a little girl in Eastern Europe has our hearts and God has very clearly said go, just like what happened, four years ago.

Rusty and Kristin Kruse are the parents of seven children, ranging in age from 31 years old to seven years old. Rusty and Kristin met in the Army at Ft. Hood, Texas in 1994. They were married later the same year.They have lived in many different areas of the US.

Rusty recently retired from the Army and now works as a civilian on a military post. Kristin is working on a college degree in Biblical Studies. They are at a very stable, very blessed point in their lives, and have decided that they would like to share their love with a little boy in Eastern Europe who has no family of his own.

Kristin has been a prayer warrior for many children on Reece’s Rainbow for years, and has a deep love for orphaned little ones. She is so grateful to God for blessing her and her family with another child.

Rusty and Kristin ask for your prayers as they work to bring this adoption to completion, as well as prayers for the well-being of the tiny boy they are hoping to adopt. “Behold, children are a gift from the LORD…” Psalm 127:3

It is with a joyful heart that I share with you the journey that Kourtney and Josh Chavira are on. It has always been heavy on both Josh and Kourtney’s hearts to one day adopt a child, which is no surprise to the people who know them! Josh has served 6 years in the United States Army, including two deployments to Afghanistan and Kuwait. While serving in the military and being away from his home and loved ones, Josh held on to the knowledge that nothing is more important than family. It is then that he confirmed the passion he felt to adopt and give a child a loving family that every child so deserves to experience. Kourtney has supported and often started up fundraisers to benefit special needs children who need assistance with medical bills, equipment for physical therapy, surgeries, etc. Many of these fundraisers were very successful for the families. Kourtney followed her dream of becoming a registered nurse. During her first year in her new career, Kourtney had the privilege of working in the homes and caring for families who had special needs children each day. This daily experience has only made the desire to adopt grow more and more for Kourtney.

Josh and Kourtney have been trying to have a baby since they became married in 2017. With no success, they sought medical advice. Kourtney was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Kourtney and Josh are hopeful that with treatment, they will one day be able to conceive a baby. During this wait, they feel called to open up their hearts and home to a sweet baby boy with Spina Bifida.

If you find it in your hearts to help Josh and Kourtney at this time, it will not go unnoticed. Even by just sharing their story and spreading the word, they will be forever grateful.

We are the McCallums! Corey and I met in 2005, were married in 2008, and have four sons age 3-10. Corey is one of 5 kids, one having Downs Syndrome, and I am one of 13 kids, some of them adopted. We had always talked about adoption, since I grew up around it, it was always something I considered. With Corey having a special needs brother, we were open to special needs adoption but I figured we’d do it the “easy” way and find a child locally!

A few years ago I found myself on the Reece’s Rainbow website and was aimlessly scrolling through profiles. One profile caught my eye, a little girl with blonde hair and big blue eyes. But my eyes then drifted to her location and list of diagnoses and I almost immediately decided that was not the ideal situation for us. I had zero desire to go to Eastern Europe and I had never even heard of some of her diagnoses! I tried to put her out of my mind but I couldn’t. As time went on, people were put in my life that helped me see that all these things that were scary to me were completely doable! I kept telling myself she’s so cute, someone else will go get her. One night I reminded myself of that and I so clearly heard God say “YOU go get her.” From that moment on I decided I would do everything in my power to do so! I made my “presentation” to Corey and to my surprise he didn’t look at me like I was crazy. We made the decision to commit to her that night and sent paperwork the next morning! The process has had a lot of ups and downs with us and has taken longer than I would have wanted. But at the end of the day, it will all be worth it to get her home and settled into a life with her very excited brothers!
