SEAMUS and JOSIAH for the Timmerman family — OH

 photo fwbutton150.png

Keith and Angie met in 2013 and married in 2014. In the summer of 2015 they welcomed their oldest son Dax. He is now almost three and absolutely the orneriest little boy you have ever met. In the fall of 2016 they welcomed their daughter Daigan. It was at their 20 week ultra sound that they received the diagnosis that Daigan had Down Syndrome. As all parents who face this challenge they immediately began educating themselves on Down Syndrome. Daigan had to be born out of town to be nearer Children’s Hospital as the initial information from the doctors was that she would need immediate open heart surgery. Through the power of prayer, Daigan did not need heart surgery. In fact they were able to take her home in four short days. She has been perfect in every way. Keith and Angie continued to educate themselves on Down Syndrome and it was through this research they found all of the children with Down Syndrome around the world that are in orphanages and need loving families. Through Reece’s Rainbow they found and committed to Seamus. As they continued to pray it became evident that they thought they could do more and they have recently also committed to Josiah. They truly believe they are answering God’s call and doing His work. They are asking for prayers and any financial support that could be provided. Please help them!

DANIIL for the Stolz Family — OH

danielfromlynn14-sepiajoeystolz-2UKRAINE

We began our adoption journey to Joey back in 2004 when we decided we wanted to adopt one or two, up to three children, from Ukraine. Through prayer, we decided we wanted an older girl (age range 10-14) with a younger brother (age range 5-9), preferably for the younger brother to have Down syndrome. We have 5 bio children, the youngest of whom has Down syndrome and autism. We felt we could handle another child with Down syndrome, since we knew what we were in for, and figured that probably not many other people were standing in line waiting for them.

We found, through another family who had adopted just a few months previously, a wonderful brother and sister pair who fit our “wish list” perfectly, except the little boy did not have Down syndrome. He had some other correctable medical problems, and in April 2004, James and Catie joined our family. Their adjustment was smooth, and we were enjoying them so much, but still felt that God could possibly be calling us to adopt another child with Down syndrome.

We heard about Daniil, saw a couple of pictures, and I was smitten. Jim was not quite as anxious as I was, since Daniil was much younger than we had originally planned, so we waited and prayed for guidance. Life goes on, but every few months I was drawn back to those pictures, then every few weeks, and soon, I was  studying them daily, and felt sure God was calling us to Daniil. Through the fall and early winter of 2006 we prayed for guidance, and that if it were not God’s will for us to have Daniil, that He provide another family for him. Through a series of events in February 2006, we came to be sure it was us, and we began our paperwork in earnest, finishing it just in time for the NAC to close down, as it was being turned into the SDA!

Updating paperwork as needed, and anxiously awaiting for the SDA to reopen, we finally got paperwork submitted in February, and got a May 2007 appointment. On June 11, 2007, Daniil became Alexander Joseph Stolz, (“Joey”) and came home with us at the end of June. He was 6 years 10 months old, and such a joy. He now has 3 brothers and 4 sisters, and a mom and dad, and lots of extended family who love him.
