Luke and Kelly Grover are parents of four beautiful children. Three of which are biological. Their fourth, Zoey, was adopted from China in 2017. Even before their marriage Luke and Kelly knew they wanted a large family. After each of their children were born premature, their youngest child being born two months premature, they were advised by their doctor that having children biologically was a risk. While disappointed, they knew they would continue to grow their family another way. They wanted to find children who might have difficulty finding a forever family because of special needs. After bringing home Zoey, who has Down syndrome, and experiencing how much love and joy she brought to our family, they decided to try again. This time they were introduced to Holly, who also has Down syndrome, and absolutely fell in love. They are working through their dossier and immigration paperwork and hope to travel in early 2020. The entire Grover family is just excited to get our daughter home.

Jared and Emily have been married for 21 years and have been blessed with wonderful children. However, they would like to continue to add to their family through the adoption of a special needs child. Jared owns his own business and Emily stays home with their children. So, any child that they are blessed to add would have her undivided time and attention and be surrounded by love from their other children. Their home is a source of pride for both her and her husband; not because of it’s size or location but because of the opportunity Emily has had to redo it. Jared is a contractor and has put in countless hours remodeling, rebuilding, and helping her realize the various renovations that she felt made her house more of a home, as well as a better fit for their large, and still growing, family.

Emily has always had a fun loving, outgoing, creative, faithful spirit. She values her husband and her family but even more so her relationship with God. She takes her faith in her Heavenly Father to heart and because of this she tries to live out her faith through unconditionally loving everyone. This is one of the reasons she has such a passion for children in need of loving homes. Jared grew up in a large family and because his dad was adopted from an orphanage, he shares Emily’s passion and vision for how their family should be grown.

Jared and Emily currently have 6 children at home. Their youngest is a special needs baby that they have guardianship of; but they hope to adopt him before too long. Their oldest child is their daughter Jerica, then their son Jeremiah who they adopted from foster care as a special needs child. They then adopted their daughter Brinlee as a special needs infant from foster care. After a short breather and after their special needs children were older Jared and Emily took in and adopted two more children from the foster care system. They felt their hearts still pulled to give a family and home to another special needs child, which lead them to their baby Tye.

It could be said that Jared and Emily have done enough. They have fulfilled their part in helping others and lightening the worlds load. However, Emily and Jared cannot shake the intense feeling that their family is still missing one piece. Their hearts have felt the cries of special needs children in Eastern Europe and they are responding. After much prayer, thought, and conversations with their other children the Leonard’s have reached out to an orphanage and found a little girl with Down Syndrome. This precious baby is in desperate need of a forever home with a family that will love her and be able to care for her many needs. The Leonard family feels honored to step up, wrap her in their arms, and give her an otherwise unimaginable life; thus completing their family puzzle with this last missing piece.
