ROSE for the Hadsell family — TX

David and Ashley Hadsell are thrilled to be adopting sweet Rose, and to welcome her into their growing family. David and Ashley met in 2001, and were married less than a year later. Adoption has always been on their hearts, with a particularly strong calling to special needs adoption. After the births of their first two biological children, David and Ashley adopted their third child in 2012, an 8-year-old boy originally from Ukraine. The Hadsell’s were then surprised by two more biological sons, which brought their family to four boys and one girl. Over the years, the Hadsell’s have prayed over the children of Reece’s Rainbow, knowing that each little face is a unique reflection of God’s love, shining with their own unique light of Jesus, carefully knit into that one extra little chromosome. They do not believe that extra chromosome is a mistake; rather, it carries an extra measure of love and honesty, an extra measure of childlike innocence, an extra measure of pure joy. David and Ashley, along with their five children, are so very honored and blessed to be welcoming Rose into their family.

BO for the Wingfield family — TX

Jared and Debbie have been married for 20 years and in that time they have grown their family in a very exceptional way. They both knew they wanted to have a large family, but through multiple IVF cycles, IUI’s, and miscarriages were still unable to have the large family they wanted. These challenges brought them closer to one another and in time helped them realize the plan God had for them. In 2008 they were finally able to conceive and carry a baby to term. In 2009 their first son and only biological child was born. He was really a miracle and special for so many reasons. Carter was born with Down Syndrome and through him, Jared and Debbie, began to see the world through a different lens. The experience and joy that came from having a child with Down Syndrome motivated them to be more involved and educated. It also inspired the conversation to adopt and provide a home for children like their sweet Carter. That is where their connection with Reece’s Rainbow started and their adoption journey began. Since 2012 the Wingfield’s have adopted children from multiple countries with different needs and abilities. They are excited to be on this journey and over the years have received so much needed support and prayers from friends and family. They feel, though, that they are not done and have room in their home and in their hearts for one more special child.

When Jared and Debbie began the process of adoption again they came across “Bo” and absolutely fell in love with him. He has the kindest and sweetest smile and they know he will be the perfect addition to their family. Due to his urgent medical needs, the Wingfield’s are working quickly to get him home and get him the specialized care that he requires. They know that the greatest healer of all, though, is the love of a family. Jared and Debbie appreciate any and all the thoughts, prayers, and support they can receive.

“We think sometimes that poverty is being hungry, naked, and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty”– Mother Teresa

“It is our duty to love the unloved, help the helpless, and bring hope back to the hopeless” -Anthony Douglas.

FYNN for the Cooke family — TX

Jimmie and Rhonda Cooke are excited to adopt their third child from Eastern Europe. The couple adopted two kids almost a year ago. They have four kids ranging from 17 to 5 years old. They would love to add one more to the family. A friend of the Cooke’s opened their eyes to adoption and it completely changed their lives forever. Jimmie works as a production foreman for an oil company in Texas, and Rhonda is a stay-at-home mother. With many prayers, God has lead them to adopting another child with Down syndrome. One of the children they adopted prior to this adoption had Down syndrome. He has completely changed their lives for the best. He has taught them to love with no strings and to be everyone’s friend. They eagerly await for the day they can call this child her son.

MICAH for the Edwards family — TX

The email with his file came and there he was, this little guy with a repaired cleft lip scar and those beautiful Asian eyes and I thought he looked like an Edwards.  Even at that, I had my list of why we couldn’t adopt and I gave that list to God.  Well, God had His own plans (of course) and here we are.
This is our second adoption process.  I can hardly believe that I’m typing that!  He’s in the same orphanage that our “Crystal” once lived in and was born just 3 weeks after we left Taiwan with her.  We spent 3 days in that orphanage with the kids in her group, but leaving with her on that final day was so bittersweet.  We were so thrilled to finally have our Gotcha Day, but so sad that there were still little faces in that room behind her.  I never actually imagined that we’d be going back to bring another one home, but I’m in awe that God is calling us back to amazing and beautiful.  Given, it isn’t always beautiful because adoption is hard, but it’s one of the best beauty from ashes stories I’ve ever been allowed to be part of.

A CHILD for the Graham family — TX

 photo fwbutton150.png

Hi there!  We are Chris and Elizabeth Graham. Newlyweds. Mama and Daddy to Worth. Adoption advocates. Chipotle lovers. A musician and an artist.

Here’s a little bit about our story.

In early 2015, I (Elizabeth) was living the single lady life when I had the craziest dream. In my dream, I was marrying the love of my life, and there right next to us was my precious, adopted child. It was breathtaking and vividly real.

By mid-2015, I was home study approved and eagerly learning the world of international adoption. After setback and heartbreak, I finally met my son, Worth, in May 2016, and he was in my arms forever on October 17, 2016.

Somewhere in the middle of that beautiful chaos, I met Chris and immediately knew he was the man of my dreams. Chris asked me to be his wife right before we traveled together to pick up my son, now our son. Loving Worth together has been the greatest joy of our lives. Some days are hard and messy and full of tears, but every day is overflowing with love.

Our prayer as a couple is that our love be so abundant that we have plenty to share with the world; now is the time to share our love and grow our family. We have more than we need, so we are building a longer table.

Thank you for being a part of this beautiful story. I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
