Taylor and Celia Marsh have embarked on a journey to bring their son home from Eastern Europe! They currently have 3 precious boys who are so excited to welcome another brother into the family. The Lord began to speak to them during the pandemic in regards to adoption, and led them through dreams and visions to a little boy who is soon to be their son. They have watched God’s affirmations unfold, as they have stepped out in faith. They are confident the Lord has big plans for this little guy!

In 2017, Celia came to know Christ from Atheism. It was an abrupt awakening in their lives and marriage and God continues to do a work in their hearts. It was a year or so later that they began to really feel called into fostering/adopting. While reading the book of James, the conviction remained: “Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” This scripture resonated deep within their hearts, and ignited a calling.

As they continue to step out in faith, they are so excited to open their hearts and home to another child. Won’t you come alongside them to bring their son home? You can help by donating to their adoption. Thank you so much for your prayers and support!

Knowing just how many children in the world need loving homes, Kelley and Jon have dreamed of adoption for years. They thought their story would start with having biological children, then growing their family further through adoption. God had different plans, though. After experiencing 4 difficult pregnancy losses, they started to open their hearts to beginning the process of adoption. They weren’t sure which route they would go – foster care? domestic adoption? When an email showed up in Kelley’s inbox from an international adoption agency with pictures of a 3-year-old boy, she was intrigued and immediately requested more information. When Kelley saw the first video of this little guy, her first thought was “that’s my kid!”. After praying about it together, Kelley and Jon decided to move forward with pursuing a soft match with that particular waiting child. After being prepared for a 4-6 week wait, his country approved the soft match in only a few short days!

With so much love to give, Kelley and Jon are ready for the beautiful and challenging journey ahead. As an occupational therapist with experience in pediatrics, Kelley has a great understanding of the resources available in the community to best support this little guy’s developmental and medical needs. Since we live within an easy drive of a state school for the deaf, a wide range of resources will be available to support the learning needs of this sweet little guy.

Kelley and Jon can’t wait to bring home their first child and begin pouring love into him. The waiting will be hard, knowing that he is still living in an orphanage and not receiving medical and therapeutic interventions that are so important at this early age. They are ready to do everything possible to speed up the process. They are so grateful for any financial support to help bring this sweet little guy home and into a loving family!

Matt and Jessica are excited to be working on their third international special needs adoption!

Matt and Jessica have been married almost 10 years and adoption has always been part of their plans. Matt and Jessica knew that God was calling them to adopt. They chose to add to their family only through adoption, and felt that special needs adoption would suit them well as a special education teacher and a pediatric nurse. They began actively looking into the international adoption process in 2015, that is when they fell in love with Li-Ru through the website Rainbow Kids. Their journey to her began! 9 months later, they were in Taiwan to bring their almost 3 year old home!

About a year after Li-Ru’s arrival, Matt and Jessica were ready to journey back to Taiwan again. This time Xin-Jou would become Li-Ru’s older sister. Li-Ru (10 years old) and Xin-Jou (13 years old) are adopted from Taiwan in 2014 and 2016 respectively. It has been amazing to watch the girls grow and blossom into the wonderful young ladies they are today. They have overcome so many obstacles and challenges in their lives. It’s a blessing to have God weave the girls into the Hughes Family.

Matt and Jessica devote their time to helping the girls achieve their goals and be close as a family. Matthew continues to work as a pediatric nurse and Jessica stays home with the girls to care for Li-Ru and Xin-Jou’s educational, medical, developmental, and emotional needs.

Now that everyone currently in the home is feeling secure they know it is time to bring home the third little girl that God has waiting for them across the ocean! They are so amazed at how God has placed people in their lives during this third journey so far and know that amazing things are going to happen! They are working hard to get to their girl as quickly as possible!

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.
