STELLAN for the Hewitt family — CO

The Hewitts are currently a family of 6 but hoping to soon be a family of 7. They have one child by adoption: a 7-year-old boy with a rare genetic condition who has been the sweetest blessing to their family, and 3 children by birth: an adorably fierce toddler, a peaceful, sweet-hearted 5-year-old and a compassionate, free-spirited 8-year-old.

The Hewitt family recently brought home their son from Asia in November of 2017 after working through an expedited adoption due to his failing health. After receiving much-needed medical care and a family to wrap their hearts and arms around him – he is now thriving! Their lives have been full of incredible blessings and JOY through the beauty of adoption.

They are now in the midst of an even more expedited adoption (3 months from beginning to end) of an aging out orphan with a very similar genetic condition as their other adopted son. Stellan came to their attention after a friend shared his Reece’s Rainbow page and their hearts were immediately drawn to this boy. The Hewitts began their race to Stellan late in December 2018 after learning of his dire situation and will need to complete the adoption and bring him home before his birthday in early April.

Even though this adoption seems like an impossible task – they have learned through their previous adoption that NOTHING is impossible with God. So far, they are on track to get to him in time. They look forward to partaking in another miracle, seeing God change a child’s status from never-chosen, orphan to awaited brother, beloved son.

Stellan already has $15,000 in grants toward his adoption; the remaining estimated adoption costs is about $16,000 and all donations will help towards these costs.

BLAKELY for the Felmlee family — CO

Cortney and Nikki have been together 10 years and are happily married with four children! In 2016 they felt their family was not yet complete and embarked on the journey of adoption. In 2017, they brought home their beautiful daughter Gracie! Within 2 months of having her home they found out multiple lifelong diagnoses, which was produced by a chromosome disorder, called Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome. For a year Gracie was in and out of Children’s hospitals and went through 7 surgeries, and now lives with oxygen and a g-tube, along with 24-hour care, but she does it all with the biggest smile ever! Watching Gracie power through her medical and physical differences, the Felmlee’s have felt blessed to be part of her life!

So, once again, the Felmlee’s are embarking on the journey back to China for their soon to be daughter, Blakely June! They have been so blessed by Gracie there is no way they could ignore this tug back to China! The second they seen Blakely’s they knew she was their daughter! They rushed to finish their homestudy and after a long month of waiting they finally had her file! Cortney and Nikki are excited to be bringing Blakely home in this summer, 2019! They feel she will fit right in as she is rocking an extra chromosome and is only 6 months younger than Gracie! Together Gracie and Blakely will make for the perfect set of sisters for their 3 big brothers!!!

FAITH ANN for the Lee family — CO

David and I (Stephanie) met on Mother’s Day 2002. I knew immediately that we would marry! Four months after meeting, we starting dating and three months later, we were engage. Four months after engagement, we were married. We knew we wanted kids and adoption was always something we thought about. I got pregnant in 2005, but lost the baby early on. A month later I was pregnant and in April 2006, Isabella was born. 13 months later, I was pregnant again, but lost the baby at 12 weeks. This was devastating to us, and after 4 years hoping for pregnancy, we decided we ought to look into international adoption. A few days after meeting with an adoption agency, we found out that we were expecting. So, adoption was put on hold.

For 7 years we thought our family was complete, but last year, God put adoption on our heart again, this time, via Foster Care. We became a licensed foster family in November of 2017. Oddly enough, we never had a foster child placed with us! I believe God was simply preparing us for what was to come. In February 2018, a friend on Facebook shared the picture of Faith Ann. Immediately, we loved her! WE asked our kids what they thought and the excitement was our answer. Izzy (12) and Elijah (8) can hardly wait to meet their sister! It has been a big leap of faith for us in so many ways, but God has been increasing our faith through this. Faith Ann’s name is so perfect! She is already growing us in so many wonderful ways!

VANCE for the Fish family — CO

vance-2016The Fish’s have been married for 24 years. They were high school sweethearts and married 1 year after school. They have three beautiful children, one of whom has an extra “LOVE” chromosome (Down syndrome). Since becoming born again, they never truly obeyed James 1:27 until now. Their ministry work often takes them to the sidewalk of abortion buildings, where they offer to adopt those unwanted pre-born babies. It occurred to them that while doing this ministry, they had not taken serious the work they were doing. In order to obey God’s word, they needed to have a home study just in case a Mom & Dad wanted to chose life and have them adopt their baby. They are almost finished with their home study and no one has taken them up on the adoption offer. They have now found Vance. Vance was abandoned by his birth parents. He is about to age out of the system in his country. Since Vance has an extra “LOVE” chromosome, he will fit in perfectly in their family. Thank you for considering a donation to help them bring home Vance. The family covets your prayers for them and for Vance and is thankful for your monetary gifts!
