Kate has received a $5,000 Older Child Grant.

We are the Fox family from a small town in North Carolina. Craig and I have been married 20 yrs! We have 6 children; Zoe (18), Gabe (16), Eli (14), Lillyanne and Colby (11), and our sweet Kinsley (10) who has been home 1 year from China.

Our adoption journey was a complete shock to us! We had decided what our life would look like but God had other plans! We had met a local family with 2 son’s (C-bio & Z-adopted) with down syndrome when our twins entered kindergarten. Lilly quickly became C’s best friend, helper and protector. Everyday she shared school day stories with me and I relayed C’s day to his mom. Lilly and C were inseparable and our families were becoming great friends. Lilly began talking about adopting a special needs child in kindergarten and we assured her that we would definitely support her when she was much older. Well, the conversation continued for years, her friendship grew stronger, and in fall of 2016 I finally said,” Lilly, if God wants us to adopt, He will place a little girl younger than you, from China with pigtails and pink bows on our front door steps!”

Guess what? My friend who was involved with hosting from Eastern Europe text asking if I had girl clothes! She text me a picture and … a precious girl, younger than Lilly with, yes, pigtails and pink bows! I laughed and announced that God sent us our daughter!

After being home with our sweet God sent daughter, Kinsley, we decided one more precious jewel was in our future! God had placed a sweet little face on my heart that I had watched being advocated for while we were adopting Kinsley. I couldn’t believe no one had started their adoption journey for her and knew God was preparing a way for us to bring her home.

We are so excited about our new journey to bring our precious Jewel home. We look forward to our new adventures as a family of 9!

We are the Woertman family and we are having so much fun with our children that we decided we needed one more. We are hoping to adopt a little girl with Down Syndrome. We live in the great state of North Carolina. We have 5 adult children, 5 school aged children and four Grandchildren.

Fred just finished up his 25th year of teaching middle school. He is often called the “kid whisperer.” He really understands middle schoolers. Between having kids, Candy taught 13 years, but has now put her teaching career on hold while her kids are little. She is currently a Teacher’s Assistant at the elementary school that all five little ones attend.

We are excited to be on this adoption journey one more time. We are also hoping to be matched with the little girl that Candy has had on her heart for almost two years.

The Myatt family has been involved in the hosting and adoption world since 2014. Due to changes in many countries, the Myatt’s have decided to adopt from Colombia. Adoption has been a dream of Stephanie’s since she was a young girl in 5th grade. Tommy and Stephanie have been married for 13 years and have 3 biological children: Dylan (15), Bryson (11) and Cohen (8).

Tommy is a Calibrations Engineer for a titanium company where he has worked for almost 13 years. Stephanie is a homeschool mom and also works for a non-profit agency. With baseball for Dylan, science for Bryson and football for Cohen, the family’s life is full, but they are so excited to welcome a sweet girl into their family now. They welcome all the pink and frilly things into their world!!

The Myatt’s have chosen to host their child this summer while finishing up adoption paperwork. Due to the way things work in Colombia this will streamline the process. They will have their dossier ready to submit to Colombia in July when the children arrive for hosting. They anticipate traveling in late fall. They are anxiously filling out paperwork and raising funds to bring their daughter home and would appreciate your love, prayers and support.

Melanie and Luke Dabbs have been best friends since their senior year of high school. The two met at a church they were both attending in 2010, and have been inseparable ever since! After courting for 7 years, they were married in Raleigh, NC in April, 2017. They now live in Raleigh with their corgi-terrier mix, Kona. They both love superheroes, Disney movies, cosplaying, traveling, and board games. Melanie is a teacher of the Deaf and hard of hearing, and teaches at a middle school. Luke is a Real Estate photographer and just graduated from NC State University with a major in Spanish. Melanie and Luke love language, traveling, and different cultures, and are excited to get to know their adopted child’s home country and culture.

Since Melanie was a little girl, she has dreamed of growing her family through adoption. It was something she talked to Luke about before they were married, and they were both in agreement that they would adopt someday. However, with all of the country requirements, such as age and length of marriage, just out of reach, they were prepared to have to wait to start their adoption journey for several years. That’s when Melanie’s friend announced that she would be adopting from a small orphanage in a West African country. After asking some questions, Melanie realized that she and Luke also met the country requirements for adopting from this country! They looked at a picture of some of the children who also lived in that orphanage, and fell in love with a little boy named Sid.

Sid is an adorable 5-year-old boy who loves Spider-Man, cars, and turtles. Melanie and Luke have been able to talk to him twice a month, and the first time they spoke to him, he said, “I love you, Mom and Dad!”. That is a moment the two of them will never forget!

Sid was badly burned as a toddler, and currently does not have use of his hands. He needs several surgeries to loosen scar tissue and allow his body to grow properly, as well as give him back the use of his hands. He also needs a family to love him and hold him through his medical journey! Melanie and Luke are so excited to meet their little guy and bring him home!
