GRIFFIN for the McCormick Family — NC

The McCormick adoption story began when Susan was very young. She saw movies like “Annie” and “Oliver!” and asked her parents if orphans were a reality. Ever since then, she wanted to give orphans a family who loves and cares for them.

Several years after she married Greg and had their first child, she spoke about adoption with him. He was open to it, but the family was still very young and not financially stable. Fast forward 19 years and 7 more pregnancies and Susan feels a strong calling to pursue adoption. Greg still doesn’t feel it’s the right time, but her grandfather sent some money unexpectedly and it was just enough to host an orphan for the summer. The family decided to host a 9 year old boy from Ukraine in the summer of 2017. The child was well accepted by the Mac kids and everyone was treating each other like siblings quickly. Greg saw that the family could handle bringing in a child and that adoption could actually work. In October 2017, the application to adopt a child in Poland was sent. Once the dossier was complete, Poland stopped accepting international couples. So the Mac Clan changed to a waiting older child in another Eastern European country. The dossier was submitted on November 13, 2018 and the official referral and invitation to travel was received on February 7, 2019.

A Child for the Azevedo family — NC

Dennis and Tia Azevedo have been happily married for nearly 3 years now and have a your’s, mine and ours family – three beautiful children. Tia was one of those orphans they called “the crib babies of Romania”. By the grace of God, she was adopted by an American family and given a beautiful chance to live. Many were not!

Adoption has been a part of Tia’s life for several years as her family adopted internationally several times, so special needs and adoption is not a new thing for her. When Tia was very young, she thought everyone was adopted. As Tia grew, she realized how unique and special it was to be chosen and she wore it like a badge of honor

When Dennis and Tia married, they spoke of having a one or two biological children and then adopting. After the very terrible and almost life-threatening birth of their daughter Isabel who was born between 34/35 weeks gestation, they decided not to risk another pregnancy and they kept adoption on their radar. A few months after Isabel’s birth Tia had a hysterectomy because of some health issues pertaining to her pregnancy and delivery.

Tia started to look on Reece’s Rainbow daily, praying and then she fell across a sweet girl and shared her with Dennis and they immediately knew that she belonged in their family!

They are excited to start this journey of adopting their own sweet “orphan” who is soon to be called “daughter”.

Keep thy heart in all diligence for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23

ANTONIO + SLOANE for the Newby Family — NC

Hi all – Most of you know we aren’t new to adoption. After the birth of our Nathan who was born with Down syndrome in 2015 we knew we wanted to grow the Newby family. Another pregnancy wasn’t in the cards but adoption was! We were blessed to be able to adopt Nicholas and Elizabeth from Eastern Europe in 2017. They flourished and grown and sped through milestones at record speed! They are strong and healthy and dearly cherished and loved.

In 2018, I traveled back to Eastern Europe to adopted Sophia. Sophia had multiple heart defects that needed immediate medical intervention and her adoption was fast tracked. She is now home, recovering, and doing amazing. She has proven to be quite a miracle. She is making huge progress and wins the heart of everyone she meets. We are proud to call her one of our own.

We are trusting God to help get our children home. As you can imagine adopting twice in two years carries a heavy financial burden and we are jumping in on blind faith for a third time. Like most people we do not have $37,000 lying around and we will be working day in and out to bring our child/children home.

We need our village to grow to help bring this little girl and boy home. Adoption is a community that bands together for a child. It knows no discrimination. It is a community of people who band together because they want all children to be in loving, nurturing homes.

Please join our village and help bring our children home.
