Amy & Kyle are so excited to welcome their first child into their lives through adoption! When they first began dating it was clear that they both wanted children and that they both had dreamed of growing their family through adoption. For Christmas one year Kyle gave Amy a card with appointments scheduled at multiple adoption information sessions and so began their journey to beginning their family!

After lots and lots of research and exploration of many many countries, they decided to adopt from South Korea where Kyle’s grandmother and mother were born. They love the idea of their child growing up around people who share their heritage and will help to preserve some of their culture.

Kyle has his master’s degree in international public health and now serves his local community empowering residents to make healthier lifestyle and food choices. Amy has her BA in Social Science with a concentration in Anthropology. She found her passion in photography and loves documenting weddings of the various cultures in California. Kyle and Amy both have a love of the world and they look forward to exposing their child to lots of travel both to South Korea and beyond while also focusing on loving our local community and bettering the world both near and far.

They have recently completed their home study and are approved to adopt a single child or twins and are open to special needs. Cardiac special needs are particularly close to their heart since Amy was diagnosed with an Arrythmia that was operated on shortly after they were married. That led them to discovering an amazing cardiac care team at Stanford hospital (who already know about and are so excited for the adoption) that would be a great resource for any heart related special needs their child may have.

They expect their dossier to be sent to South Korea soon and are so excited to learn who their child will be!

Amy & Kyle will be adding updated posts to their blog as things progress. If you would like to come along on this journey, please follow their blog. As always, your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated!  Thank you in advance for coming along with us on this amazing journey!

When she traveled in 2018 to adopt her son, Campbell, Sara had the opportunity to speak to the Director of her son’s Orphanage. Sara learned that of the approximately 500 children in Orphanage’s care, almost 1/5 of the children had Down Syndrome. Even more staggering was the revelation that her son was only the 7th child with Down Syndrome to be adopted from that Orphanage. After learning about these children, Sara committed to advocate and help them find their forever families.

Upon returning home with her son, Sara started to read a collection of folktales to him each night. One of these folktales, “Holding Up the Sky”, followed a little hummingbird that was determined to do her part to save the sky from falling. Her friend, the elephant, laughed at her attempt to hold up the sky with her little hummingbird legs, but the hummingbird was determined to do her part.

Sara was moved to tears by this tale and shared it with her older children, Elise and Luke. They saw themselves as the hummingbird and decided that they were ready to go beyond advocacy and do their part to bring home another child with Down Syndrome from Campbell’s Orphanage.

Sara, a Middle School Special Education Teacher, has already begun fundraising with bake sales, garage sales, auctions, and more to come. The Croasdaile family, Sara, Elise, Luke, and Cam, welcome other hummingbirds to join them in supporting the journey to bring home their beautiful treasure!

Adelyn has received a $5,000 Older Child Grant.

Matt and Sherry Fry fell in love in high school in 1988. They lost contact and were reunited in 2010, 22 years later through Facebook. They married in 2013 with Matt having two small sons and Sherry having two grown daughters. They have 5 grandchildren and one due in December. The latest addition to the family is Miss Nastiia, a Reece’s Rainbow sweetheart adopted in 2016. Nastiia is a true princess with a whole lot of sass!

After Nastiia came home, Sherry found a video of a darling older girl with cerebral palsy and was instantly drawn to her. Sherry would soon realize why: Sherry had lost twins in 2004. That same year, the child she saw in the video was born across the world, also as a twin!

Matt and Sherry knew that she was meant to be their daughter; this was God’s plan, not their own. They had a full house and honestly thought they were finished having children! After watching this same video over and over and leaving this decision in God’s hands, they quickly realized there would always be enough love for one more small Fry. They would love your prayers and support as they work to raise the money needed to bring their new daughter home to her forever family.
