Zachary and Savannah recently celebrated four glorious years of marriage and have two beautiful children, Reese and little Zachary. They live on a farm in a small country town in southern TN, and are blessed with a slower paced, albeit full, life as a little family loving each other and growing together in the Lord!

Zack works as a mechanic and cattle farmer with his father-in-law, a job filled with hard physical labor that also allows him to be close to home and most days spend lunch break at home with his family. He appreciates all the time he gets with his wife and kids, both in the mornings during breakfast and in the evenings when he comes in from work, as well as the weekends.

Savannah is blessed to be a stay at home mama to their two little ones. Her days are filled with nurturing their children, cooking meals from scratch, keeping house, and when the time can be found, sewing clothes and making quilts. She also runs a small online fabric shop from home.

The Morgans firmly believe that God has called them to take a leap of faith in Him and plunge into the journey of international adoption. They are working diligently to bring home a precious little girl with special needs, and are trusting the Lord each step of the way in what feels like a crazy, roller coaster ride of a process. It has been His grace that has brought them to this, and His grace will be sufficient to see them through!

As each step brings them closer to their soon-to-be forever daughter, the excitement is rising! Little Zachary does not yet comprehend what is happening, but Reese understands and is thrilled to be having a sister!

The whole family anticipates the day that she is finally HOME and they are doing all that they can to help that day to come as swiftly as possible. Whether they are spending the evening working in the garden together, painting and remodeling the children’s nursery themselves, hanging laundry on the clothesline, or laying down for naps, she is on their hearts and in their prayers.

They appreciate your prayers as they continue on, completing paperwork, trying to patiently wait on approvals and paperwork processes, and fundraising to help with the many expenses. They know that God will make a way, because He is the One Who sets the lonely in families!

Meet the Newsoms! The Newsom family is originally from Texas but moved to East Tennessee a little over two years ago. They love living in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains and exploring this beautiful part of the United States. Husband & father, Cass Newsom, was in the military for 8 years in both the Marine Corps and the Texas Army National Guard. Wife and mother, Kristin Newsom, was a public school teacher for five years before becoming a stay at home/homeschool mom. They have three biological daughters aged seven, four, and one.

They always talked about fostering or adopting. After watching many friends foster and adopt, they decided that international adoption was best for their family. At the same time, they came across two sisters listed on Reece’s Rainbow. While still contemplating and researching the decision to commit, Kristin came across a post by Keshia Melton containing the girls pictures. It was just the encouragement they needed!

Cass went on several mission trips as a teen when he was first introduced to special needs orphans. Kristin worked with middle school and high school students in both rural and inner city areas. Her last year of teaching, she switched to special education. Through challenges within their own household, they saw parenting through a different perspective.

These experiences have afforded them the ability to work with children from different backgrounds with unique needs. They believe that every child has value and is made and loved by God. While they do not know the extent of their challenges & capabilities, they do know that they need a family to love and take care of them!

Mollie doesn’t remember the exact moment when adoption was put on her heart and in her mind. But, she does remember it was all consuming. She tried to get away from it. But, she couldn’t. It was there and it wouldn’t go away. It was 2015. By early 2016 she finally worked up the nerve to bring it up to her husband, Bryan. It’s not that they didn’t talk often, or that they kept secrets. It’s that she thought he would think that she was crazy! You see… they had seven biological children and they thought they were done. Their family felt complete.

Earlier that year their youngest, at seven years old, had had open heart surgery. She had recovered and was doing great. Their oldest son was engaged to be married. Life was good. But, that nagging adoption thing wouldn’t go away. So she told him. And, the miracle of it all was that he had been thinking about it, too.

In April 2017, one month after their first grandchild was born, they came home with not one, but two sons from China. They were their pride and joy! But life wasn’t ever going to be the same. It was overwhelming! But, one day at a time, one sleepless night at a time, they got through it.

They went into adoption with their eyes wide open, or so they thought. In the end both boys, their sons, had needs that had been undiscovered. The words deaf and autism, and global delays were added to their family. But guess what? These were their children, the ones they fell in love with before they had ever met them! They held on because God knew what they needed. They needed to depend upon him totally. Three years later their adopted sons are thriving and their biological children have learned so much about love and the privilege to know people with special needs.

In 2020 that call to adopt has become strong in their family again. This time they have felt called to consider adopting a little girl with that beautiful extra chromosome. They want to add a child with Down syndrome to their family. And, once again it’s the same, that all consuming desire is there to give a child a family. Would you please pray God will make a way?
