2 Siblings for the Beach family — NY

Jeff and Devin have been married for 11 years. They talked about adoption being a part of their family planning before they were even married.  Devin is an adoptee, and Jeff’s sisters are adoptees, so it was always something they both felt strongly about. They have 2 biological children: a 9-year-old daughter and a 7-year-old son. Now they are working towards adopting another son and daughter from South Korea. Jeff’s sister is a South Korean adoptee and so his whole family is excited to be a part of this process again. The Beach family is taking Korean language classes and Kuk Sool Won, a Korean martial art, together. The kids especially cannot wait to bring their new brother and sister home. The Beach family is so ready for their adventure in South Korea and to start this next exciting chapter in their lives.

2 Boys for the Huber-Wolfe family — NY

Nathan and Jennifer adopted their first child in 2012 from Pleven, Bulgaria after seeing the documentary “Bulgaria’s Abandoned Children”. Nathan, Jennifer, and Jennifer’s mother all took shifts staying in Bulgaria for several months to ensure Daniel would be healthy enough to make the trip home. After he arrived home, a local physician remarked that it was “the most profound case of neglect he’d ever seen”. A few years later, they adopted Max from China. Among several other medical issues, Max had been born with a facial cleft and was left on the street, as happens with many of China’s orphans.

Recently, Nathan and Jennifer felt called to adopt from the most overlooked group and selected an older child with more acute needs from Eastern Europe. They committed to “Jackson”, but tragically, he passed away as their home study was being completed. With tremendous grief, they selected “Kayden” and recently made their first trip to meet him. They found that besides Kayden, there was only one other adoptable child at the institution. He is severely disabled and been passed over his whole life, so that he is now close to aging out. Nate and Jen are currently racing against the clock to bring this child home as well.

LUCIA for the Grimes family — NY

Mike and Theresa Grimes met in a tiny college town in Emmitsburg Md. We have 8 wonderful sons ranging from 28-8 years old. While there is never a dull moment at our home we know we have lots of love to share. People keep telling us “your plate is full” our answer is “We have a lot of room in our hearts”.

Both Mike and Theresa always wanted a daughter and are thrilled to be getting her through the blessing of adoption.

We are so happy to have found Reeces Rainbow and are thankful for all of the support from this amazing community.

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for forgotten by everybody, I think that is much greater poverty than the person that has nothing to eat.”

CHIANG (Abigail) for the Wood Family — NY

chiang2008woodfamilyTAIWAN

We arrived in Taiwan on Saturday January 26th at 8:00 p.m. and the next morning we were off for just a visit with our daughter and we were all comfortable and fell immediately in love so we were able to bring her back to the hotel that afternoon where we played and became more comfortable. She immediately bonded to Daddy, she wouldn’t leave his arms…so precious! He couldn’t leave her sight. We respected that so I would play with her while she was on Daddy’s lap!  We had a wonderful trip. The people of Taiwan are very kind and generous. Abigail enjoyed going out to shops and walking around Taipei, greeting visitors who wanted to talk with her.

 

We left Taiwan Thursday at 2:00 pm (lost a day in between) and arrived back in Rochester, New York Thursday evening Jan 31st at 11:45. There we were greeted by several family members and friends.  In the car ride home, Abigail grasped her brother and sister’s fingers and wouldn’t let them go…they wouldn’t let her go either!

She has adjusted very well, she is on a regular eating, sleeping and playing schedule. It is like she has been a part of our family forever!  She is talking in English and using sign language already! She will begin receiving early intervention services in March! What a great country we live in. God has truly blessed us beyond every blessing! We are so thankful for safe travel, friends, family and of course to God for all he has provided us.

JAMES (Simon) for the Kulp Family — NY

Simon Daniel Kulp (Dang Da Nian) has been home with us since Nov 28th 2007!  Our quiet home of 2, has now been transformed into a family of 3 with glorious shrieks, giggles and daddy/son wrestling matches!  He is now 3 1/2 years old.  We have absolutely loved our first 8 months with our new son who has taught us about a completely new kind of love that we have never felt before!  Our family has been kept hopping, between PT, OT, Speech Therapy, Special Ed, an unexpected hernia repair, (along with some other unexpected “boy part surgery”) and of course playing, swimming and napping!!!  We are so pleased with how our precious boy has progressed and grown, grown, grown.  It’s amazing what some vitamins, weight-bearing, moisturizing and scrubbing up can do for a boy!  In December he couldn’t stand on his own, now he is practically running laps around me.  He is a sign language whiz thanks to Signing Times videos, and his vocabulary is s-l-o-w-l-y expanding.  You should have heard him say Grandpa for the first time yesterday!  We are so thankful to God, for the smooth transition Simon made into our life.  We can hardly remember life without him!
