KNOX for the Rockwell-Hopkins family — IL

Roderick and Melissa have been happily married for eight years and reside in a small town in Illinois with their five wonderful children Adeson (12), Emery (11), Jacob (9), Ella Grace (7) and Casey(5). Four of their five children were adopted internationally, two from China and two from Ethiopia. Rod and Melissa have been committed to adoption, and both they and their extended families have been foster parents, adoptive parents, and advocates for humanitarian and children’s rights. They are also parents to Melissa’s seven children from her first marriage of 17 years Brandon (34), Ryan (deceased), Alex (25), Matthew (23), Sara (20), Emily (17) and Antonio (17), Alex, and Antonio were also adopted, one at age eight and one at age four from Russia and Guatemala. They believe their family is their calling and feel blessed to have had the blessing of family and friends throughout their life journey.

The cost and process of international adoption, while intimidating they believe is far worth the journey. Rod and Melissa believe that completing their family through adoption is the right thing for them and are very excited about bringing home their new son who they found through Reece’s Rainbow, whom they will call Noah. If you can help them support their adoption journey, their family would be grateful.

MARSHALL for the Kincinas family — IL

Sheryl and John met while supporting adults with disabilities, most of whom have Down syndrome, and married five years later. Early into their relationship, they were committed to adopting a child with Down syndrome. That plan was put on hold when their second child was born with Down syndrome. He was closely followed by his little brother. Tragically, their middle son passed away suddenly after his fourth birthday.

John and Sheryl again recommitted to parenting a child with Down syndrome, and brought home a Reece’s Rainbow child with Down syndrome in February of 2018. They tried to bring home another little boy at the same time, but rule changes went into effect which prohibited this plan. A vow was made that, if everyone in their family was adjusting well from the adoption, they would go back for the other boy. And the time has come!

The Kincinas family is excited to travel back to Asia this summer to bring home Marshall. He has been in their hearts for nearly two years and they are eager to have him in their arms. Their kids are thrilled to have another sibling to run around with, and are looking forward to another adventure in Asia.They thank everyone who has advocated and prayed for Marshall and appreciate any financial help that is given.

DORABELLE for the Hickey family — IL

Robert and Kelly Hickey are High School sweethearts who started dating at age 16 and have been inseparable ever since! They spent 8 years together prior to their marriage supporting one another as they developed their careers and built a home together. Robert is a hardworking, family man who works as a mechanic, lays concrete, and plows. He also spends much of his time working on their new home in which they will build their family in. Kelly is a passionate special educator who went on to pursue Behavior Analysis and spends her days working hard to advocate for those with disabilities. Although Kelly has her dream job, she knows her true purpose in life is Motherhood. While Robert and Kelly are still newly married, they have been highly anticipating the start of their new family. Since early on in their relationship, the couple had discussed growing their family through adoption, however, they didn’t know when would be the right time. The couple had decided they would start by pursuing foster care but one night as they were preparing to send the application, they had an overwhelming feeling that God was leading them to a specific adoption. Not long after, Kelly came across a photo of a beautiful little boy, and instantly knew that he was the one waiting for them. The couple worked tirelessly to bring their son home from an orphanage to the love and family that he deserved, but unfortunately did not make it in time. While the loss of their son was completely devastating, they knew they had to continue to pursue an adoption.

Robert and Kelly prayed for their son to guide them to another worthy child. After several months they were finally connected to a little girl who completely stole their hearts. The love was instant, just like it was for their little boy!

The Hickeys, along with their families and friends, are beyond excited to bring their daughter home! Their adoption journey has been long and difficult but with everyone’s support they know God will make this possible for their growing family. Robert and Kelly are incredibly appreciative of any financial, emotional, or spiritual support that you can provide.
