A Child for the Yeatts family — PA

Abbey and Evan met while attending graduate school in Philadelphia 6 years ago. After starting to get to know each other, they discovered they shared an unlikely connection of wanting to one day care for a special needs child. Abbey worked professionally in a 1-on-1 setting with children with special needs, and Evan grew up with a younger brother with Williams syndrome and an aunt with cerebral palsy. They were married in 2016 and agreed that they would eventually adopt a special needs child, perhaps one day when they had a small family they could bring them into.

Three years later at a time when Abbey and Evan were talking a lot about having children, Abbey discovered Reece’s Rainbow after speaking with a colleague about their desire to adopt. After reading more and learning of the pressing need for adoptive parents for special needs children, Evan and Abbey had a conversation of “Why not now?” Shortly thereafter Abbey discovered a little boy with cerebral palsy waiting to find his forever family. Both Abbey and Evan fell in love with his smile, and they knew they couldn’t imagine putting off adoption any longer.

CAROLINE for the Umstead family — PA

We are the Umstead family and we are so excited to add Caroline to our family! I am Heather and my husband is Tom. We have been married 26 years and have 4 biological children, 3 boys and a girl. One adopted son, and are in the process of bringing Caroline home to our family. Our biological children are all grown up and all but one are out on their own. That’s when God put adoption in our hearts. December 4th 2017 we traveled to Asia and brought home our son Samuel. Samuel has doubled the joy in our family! While we were in Asia we met Caroline who happened to be Samuel’s “bunk mate”. They had been together a long time and cuddled together during the cold nights because there wasn’t heat in their orphanage. We knew that one day we would return for her and we will name her Joy! The joy God has allowed us to experience on this journey, that is hard and sometimes ugly but also full of love and joy at sometimes.

JACOB for the Mann Family — PA

themannfamilyHONG KONG

 We had an absolutely awesome time in Hong Kong.

Our social worker was an excellent tour guide and we saw many of the sights and learned about the history of the city.  It was a once in a lifetime experience for all of us, and that does not include the most wonderful part of the journey!!!!   Jacob took to our family immediately, he must have felt the love that we have had for him for so long.  The orphanage staff was wonderful to us and our family.  There was a very tearful goodbye when we took Jacob home.

The staff could not grieve for very long, because they had other children to care for that are still waiting for their forever families.  I do not think that I will ever have the right words to express how we all felt, all I can say is that he is the most precious gift our family has ever received.  He is funny and engaging and is already flirting with Emily and Erika’s friends.
