Nick and Keely Cogan have always believed that adoption would be a part of their family story. They adopted their first child in 2011, bringing Karwen home from China. Her smiling face called to to them and they knew that she belonged with them.

Only months after coming home with Karwen, they knew that they were being led back to China. Sure enough, Kai (“Nick” on RR) and his little brother Kade joined the family in 2014. The Cogans thought that their family might be complete, but the Lord had other plans. Kassi came home in 2016 after a whirlwind process of just 12 weeks. The process had to be expedited because she would have aged out only three days after she met her new family.

At that point, it was clear to them that their family was still incomplete. Two teenage siblings came up – they urgently needed a host family. The Cogans felt like this was placed before them and were given the means to host S and V in the summer of 2018 and then again that winter. Although it has not always been easy, the family grew together and very soon realized that they all ‘fit’ just perfectly. S and V have expressed a strong wish to become Cogans, and the family is convinced that they belong together and are all working so hard to make that happen (even the little ones)! S and V both have urgent medical needs that are impossible to treat properly where they currently are, making it imperative for the Cogans to move forward as quickly as they can.

When the kiddos are back in their home country, everyone feels like the family has missing pieces and yearns for everyone to be together again, hoping and praying that the kids remain safe and healthy in a very hard situation until they can be home forever.

The Cogans believe that the Lord will provide everything necessary to finish this incredible journey, and so appreciate you joining them in speeding up this process to get their children home where they belong with the medical attention that they need. They thank you for any and all prayers and support that you can offer.

We are Danielle & Nick Muzzey. We love children and have 5 wonderful bio kids. We would have had more if God would have chose to continue to bless us, but that was not his plan so we accepted that our family was complete and was thankful for how blessed we truly were.

Somehow while on Facebook I stumbled across Reece’s Rainbow, and it soon become my favorite part of Facebook. I admired these families that so unselfishly gave so much to make a difference in the life of a child that others just discarded. I love to follow the stories and families and often thought wow they are such amazing people but I knew that there was no way that my family could ever pull this kind of thing together. We weren’t your typical adopting type of family. We don’t have 30k laying around, we don’t drive brand new vehicles, we don’t have a huge house, so I would sit, watch and pray from a distance. Until that day….that 1 video that caught my eye and melted my heart. Something about her, she was perfect. I prayed for that little one nightly that God would bring her a family and he did, but was soon relisted not just once or twice but a number of times. Why? Why does this child continue to be let down?

That’s it no more!! I had to do something, she was running out of time, a transfer to an adult institution is inevitable. That can not happen. Back to praying I went and the answer was soon very clear. All those other families fell through because she was meant to be our daughter. Hubby was not so sure he was more practical and thought that I may be going crazy. He had legitimate concerns. Where will the money come from? Can we handle her disability? Who will care for her when we are gone? It took about 2 months of praying that God would reach him and he did. God is Good.

We are going to follow by faith, pray and believe that God will provide. There is a princess waiting across the seas that deserves so much more then what life has handed her. She is already loved and does not even know it. She needs us as much as we need her.

Please pray that this process goes quickly and smoothly to bring our daughter home. If you feel led and are able to donate any amount will make a huge difference in our journey. Thank you and God bless.

They are stepping again … This will be Dennis & Cindy’s 4th Adoption. In 2012 their first Adoption Journey was for their little Adalyn in Russia. They traveled in December, spent a week with their precious little one, while they were with Adalyn the threat of the Ban was circulating. The Judge was trying to get them back quickly for Court. But a week after their return home the Ban became law and Adoptions were stopped in Russia. They did everything they could, gathering with the other families that also had children behind the Orphanage Gates in Russia, meeting with our Government, Praying, Believing. Adalyn is now 8 years old still in an Orphanage, we still Believe for the day she will come through the Orphanage Gates & Home.

In 2014 God brought two little ones Abraham & Sarah. They knew the two little ones were their son & daughter and on January 7, 2014 they Committed to adopt two little ones in Ukraine, just 2 & 3 years old, biological siblings. A month after starting their Adoption the War broke out in Ukraine and the two little ones were in one of the 3 Cities where the War was. Dennis & Cindy still continued, Believing, listening to God, knowing He would bring their babies home. On May 7 their paperwork was submitted and on June 7 they got travel dates. But soon were told they could not travel due to active bombing in their children’s city. God spoke through it all & they Believed, Prayed, clung to their Faith & never gave up. On Dec. 4, 2014 just as God had spoken, Abraham & Sarah took their first steps in America, their Home. God did Miracle after Miracle in protecting, bringing them out of a War zone and brought them Home just as He spoke & Promised… They will be Home for CHRISTmas, and they were.

In February of 2016 God brought another little one to Dennis & Cindy. Little Ayden … Ayden’s adoption was another Journey of Trusting God, watching, Trusting and seeing once again His perfect timing , Miracles. On December 7, 2017 little Ayden took his first steps on American soil.

When Dennis & Cindy were in Ayden’s adoption God brought a little 10 year into their Home through Hosting , little did they know then what God’s plan was. They Hosted this precious little boy now turning 13 in March 7 times in their Home. God is still unfolding His plan for this little boy in their family.

Then in October of 2018 God brought a little girl, Little “A” just 6 years old. While following another family’s Adoption Cindy saw on their page this little one, they were looking for a family to Host her for CHRISTmas… Little A was their Sarah, she could be Sarah’s Twin. When Cindy showed her video to Abraham, Sarah & Ayden they all thought it was Sarah. Cindy wrestled for a week trying to figure this one out. How could they possibly do this, they were already Hosting their little boy, this was another Hosting Agency, would involve raising funds, flying to another city to pick her up. After a week she went to Dennis & when she showed him her picture & video he too thought it was his daughter Sarah. So they stepped in faith seeing what God would do. In a day He provided all her funds for Hosting and then He provided all her flight fees. When she landed on Dec. 19 in Texas & Cindy saw this tiny little one come through the doors, frightened, looking all around, not knowing where she was with tears in her little eyes. She scooped her up and immediately she knew and her heart broke knowing in just a month she would have to send her back. Little “A” fit into our family from the minute she stepped into their lives. She was another CHRISTmas Miracle, a Gift from God and when Cindy asked God how can we do this again, how can we send her back. God told her. I brought her to you. You have to send her back so I can bring her Home. So here they are again after raising their 8 children to Adults, 9 Grandchildren, God opened their hearts, their Home & family to Adoption … They will continue to step & follow … Will you help them bring their Precious Little “A” Home?

It’s hard to believe that we went from 2 to 4 just a little while ago as everything has adjusted better and smoother than we could have ever imagined!  Emma and Micah are a perfect fit from God for our family and we know the miracles that brought them to us are the first of many to come for our family.  Both children are learning to sit, express their wants, and know that their needs willbe fulfilled.  Kristopher and Brianna love their new “babies” and   have taken to them so well.  A little too well sometimes!  We are absolutely in love and cannot imagine life without all four of our little blessings.   I am in awe of each of their accomplishments and wait expectantly for what God has for our future together.
