A CHILD for the Chilton family — AL

Meet the Chilton family. We are Jason, Donna, Katy, Clark, Brody, Callie and coming soon  “Anna” as we will call her. We have been married for 11 years. Jason works as a safety director and Donna homeschools the kids.

After having two biological kids, Jason and Donna felt the call to adopt. In 2014, they brought siblings Katy and Brody home from Ukraine. Katy has Spina Bifida along with other complications. After almost five years home, the Chiltons have felt the call to adopt again. They knew from the moment they saw Anna’s face that it was meant to be. She has Spina Bifida like Katy. They are so excited to add sweet little Anna to their family.

GINNY for the Allen family — AL

Jake and Jada Allen have been married for just over two years. Although they do not have any children yet, they do have four dogs that they consider their family. Jake and Jada met straight out of high school and got married around two years later. Jake works as a district manager and Jada is a teacher in a special needs classroom.

They have both always dreamed of growing their family through adoption, but thought it would be later on in life as they are both very young. Jake is just 24 and Jada is just 23. They have both always known friends and family that have adopted internationally as well and were familiar with the process. One day a friend of Jada’s shared some waiting children on her Facebook profile from Asia. While Jake and Jada were not old enough yet to adopt from Asia, this really sparked Jada’s desire to begin the process of adoption.

After talking with Jake, they decided to reach out to the agency to officially begin the adoption process. Due to their young age, one country was the best fit for them. At first they wanted to go the traditional route because it usually takes a longer time and would have given them time to save up money and prepare to become first time parents. They both took a look at the waiting child list and immediately found their daughter.

They are matched to a three-year-old little girl who will shortly be turning four years old. Although she faces multiple medical problems, she is smiling and happy in all of her pictures and videos. Jake and Jada did a medical review with the International Adoption Clinic and the doctor described their little girl as one who has already defeated all of the odds.

Jake and Jada have taken a great leap of faith in adopting internationally but they know that God will provide to bring their little girl home. They greatly appreciate you for taking the time to read their story and your consideration of a tax-deductible donation to their adoption fund. Please continue to pray for them as they get ready to become first-time parents to their beautiful little girl.

Sammy for the Falls family — AL

There are times in our life when God is calling us to step out on faith and trust in Him and no one could have given us a more profound love and help us have a greater faith and trust in our Lord than our precious second born son Jake. Born with a terminal illness that left him severely handicapped and medically fragile, Jake opened our eyes to a whole new world of special needs, chronic illnesses and medical fragility that we never knew existed. Yet through all the struggles, we found the true face of God, our Rock, our Redeemer, our great Comforter. Because of his pure and selfless love, having Jake as our son has completely transformed our lives and we are forever changed by God’s blessings and His goodness. He has blessed us in this life with 3 wonderful sons and although shortly after his 3rd birthday, we were stricken by life’s greatest tragedy in losing our precious and beloved Jake, we can’t help but be thankful that we have been chosen for such a treacherous journey because through the storms, our eyes have been opened to see the beauty of God’s precious orphans that are in need a mother and father to show them the love and comforts of a family.

Because of Jake, we have a heart for God’s special children living in orphanages that have been “thrown away” and otherwise forgotten. To others they may seem damaged but we see the true beauty that God sees in them and we know the full potential they possess if only given the chance. We feel that God is tugging at our hearts to adopt our 4th son whom we believe God has already chosen for us; a precious angel who was placed in a orphanage simply because he was born with Down Syndrome. What his birth mother saw as a burden, we know if a gift from God and we want to show him how worthy and loved he truly is but we need your help to make him ours. We are fully stepping out on faith and trusting God to make a way financially for us to bring our next child home. We trust in Him and know that He will provide for our needs. We want to thank you in advance for helping us bring our precious angel home and give him a wonderful family who will give him the life he deserves.

JOVAN for the Bedford Family — AL

Our second adoption was a quick and easy process. Our timeline was less than 4 months from the date we committed to adopt until we were home from Serbia with our son.  Grifyn is an absolute delight! He is charming and very smart. In just a few short weeks home, he is saying words in Elnglish, using sign language and following simple requests with verbal cues. He has bonded beautifully with our family. We are already seeing the advantages of having 2 children with Down Syndrome and we are so very thankful that our boys will grow up together.

Our family will be forever grateful to the ministry of Reece’s Rainbow for helping us to find Grifyn and Xander. We are so very blessed to be their parents and we are looking forward to watching them grow and reach their full potential.

The question that we always get asked about our adoption is “Why would you choose a child with Down syndrome?” My simple answer is always this: “We prayed, God answered and we obeyed.” And our family has been blessed beyond measure through our obedience. We have a perfect little boy with a sparkle in his eye that reminds me each time I look at him that there is no price to be put on the life of a child. Our adoption journey took just 2 days shy of 8 months from the day we found Reece’s Rainbow. At times it seemed like an emotional rollercoaster, but the ride was well worth the end result: our forever child. I consider it an honor to say that I am the mother of this precious gift from God. We are looking forward to the challenges and rewards of extra chromosomes!

GINA and LOUISA for the Andrews Family — AL

andrewsfamilyginanadluisaCOLOMBIA

Our adoption journey this time was very eventful. We arrived in Bogota, Colombia on May 27th and received our newest girls on Monday.   Their names are Lilyanna Hope and Gabriella Joy.  Our meeting was fantastic and they adjusted very well. The Lord sent us two very precious girls and we know they are meant to be a part of our family. We have now been home for 3 weeks and are still adjusting. We have been running to DR’s appointments and just spending time as a family. Our stay in Colombia lasted one month and then we returned to Alabama.  We feel it is such a honor to be the parents to children with Down Syndrome, and we just love watching them grow and develop each and every day. It is like watching a caterpillar in a cocoon and turning into this beautiful butterfly. they are all unique and have many hidden dreams just ready to share with the world. You may read about our family in the July 31st edition of Woman’s Day Magazine that will hit newsstands on July 24th.
