Lil Rose Bud for the Snyder family — VA

A little about the Snyder family. The fairy tale began twelve years ago when two hearts came together as one. A leap of faith for love and family. The special part of this was Lonnie wasn’t just taking Michelle as his wife, he was also taking Kaiyla and Kyle as his own. As the family journey continued they shared a desire and passion to grow their family by opening their hearts and home to a special child through the means of adoption.

Little did they know how their very desire for a special little one would forever change their world. Fall 2015 a little face and that fluffy hair caught Michelle’s eye as she read through a Rainbow Kids email and had that feeling. This is to be their son! Fast forward to today as they celebrate 20 months home! Blessed far beyond measure to have the title of Miles parents and share the journey of life with him. He has forever changed their world and they cannot imagine life without him in it.

The current Snyder family status… Growing by adoption of one special ‘lil rose bud! They are blessed to have the opportunity of being on the journey to bringing home a little sister for Miles to grow up with and share the adventures of life. Two little ones with two different starts of life yet so many similarities. Both Miles and ‘lil rose bud are special in the fact that they have an extra chromosome, also known as trisomy 21. They also share the fact they were born half way around the world in Taiwan. The most special similarity… they are their children! Handpicked by God for the Snyder family!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE.

I Samual 1:27
For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.

The Snyders are humbled and blessed far beyond measure that of all the families in the world God handpicked them to treasure ‘lil rose bud as their own. Join them on this journey by sharing their journey with others, lots of prayer and when felt lead the generosity of donation as they take the leap of faith for love and family as their family grows.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Lonnie, Michelle, Kaiyla, Kyle, Miles and ‘lil rose bud

CADENCE for the Bowles family — VA

ln October of 2007, Ronnie, a single dad of 3 girls, and Vivian, a single mom of 2 girls began a new adventure together as one family. 2 more baby girls were added to the mix; one in 2008 and the other in 2012. Children that were not being raised in a family had been on Vivian’s heart since she was a small child and in 2014 her childhood dream of growing a family through adoption was realized when they brought home their first son and 2 more daughters from Eastern Europe. Then in 2017 God sent them a super sweet baby boy bringing their total to 9 daughters and 2 sons.

While still pregnant with their baby boy Ronnie expressed to Vivian that he was open to adopting again. She was not but was willing to pray. Over the next few weeks God wrecked her heart for children with special needs who were being raised in institutions. That fall she came across a blog post of a family who had met Cadence and were hoping to help find her a family. And slowly over the fall and winter God changed her no to a yes.

Ronnie and Vivian and their children are excited to bring Cadence home and watch God’s plan to give her a hope and a future unfold. They are both humbled and grateful for any who come alongside them in their journey.

EDDIE for the Marshall family — VA

Billy and Laura Marshall have been married for 13 years. They have four children, the youngest two adopted from Asia last year. They knew they would go back to Asia one day, but had no idea it would be so soon. When they saw “Eddie’s” picture they knew he was their son. After learning more about him, they decided to begin compiling their Dossier and completing their home study as quickly as possible. As soon as their 1 year adoption anniversary came, they quickly began the process to adopt “Eddie”.

The Marshall family was humbled by the support for their first two adoptions and asks that you consider supporting them again as they rush to their newest little one. “Eddie” needs medical care, proper nutrition, and a family to love him. The Marshall’s are working quickly to bring “Eddie” home and welcome him into their family.

SOPHIA for the Breakfield family — VA

After adopting two boys with Down Syndrome thru Reece’s Rainbow from Ukraine in 2013, our eyes were opened to the beauty of children with intellectual disabilities. We have the love, space, and heart for another extra special child but we are asking for your help in raising the money to bring her home!

We are currently a family of 9. Joey and Victoria were married in 2004 and our first son, Isaiah, was born in 2006. Followed by Hannah (2008), Meah (2010) and Jedidiah (2011). We thought our family was complete. But God! Early in 2013, we felt the pull to adoption, specifically international special needs adoption. We knew we could have biological children so we felt called to adopt an orphan, one that someone else might overlook. Children with Down Syndrome pulled at our hearts. We had lots of research and learning to do as this was all new to us. We came home with our new additions in December of 2013 and we have continued to learn. Jeremiah (age 9) and Nehemiah (age 5) are treasured sons, incredible blessings, and beautiful examples of the power of adoption. They were left in orphanages at birth just like the child we are seeking to adopt now. We don’t want anymore time to pass for this child without the love of a family, support of parents and siblings, security of a warm home, full belly, and knowledge that she will never be left alone again. We would love for you to come along side us as we race to bring her HOME.

ADDISON and ADELAIDE for the Kimrey family — VA

Laurie and Travis met in High school. They became engaged quickly after they met. They will celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary this year. Adoption has always been something they both talked about. That is why at the age of 21 and 22 they built their dream home extra large to accommodate all the children they prayed they would be blessed with. The Kimrey family adoption journey began when they became foster parents after having had their five children. Very quickly they received a call for micro preemie twins, one with extreme special needs and would they be willing to accept the placements? Well they said yes and their journey began. Haylee and Baylee became officially Kimreys in December 2014. Bio Mom and Dad had micro preemie twins again 11 months later. They also joined their family shortly after their birth. They became officially Kimerys in June 2015. Twins times two has been quite the wild ride. But they are darling precious children. Well in Nov 2015 while they were browsing Reeces Rainbow and saw picture come up of a little boy in Bulgaria he suffered the same condition as our first twin Haylee, Hydrocephalus. Only his case was untreated. He had been left in a box locked away for six years, his head had grown so large he could not even hold it up. Yet, in all the orpanage reports it spoke of his wonderful, loving demeanor. It was at that moment that God spoke to Laurie’s heart and said, “There in that broken body, trapped there was a little boy” They knew he would be their son. Nathaniel came home and join their family in December 2015. Laurie and Travis did find out once in Amercia that he suffers from Dandy Walker Syndrome and he is actually missing parts of his brain. So he is like a baby but the sweetest little guy. He has changed their lives and how they see every minute of everyday. To know him is to be changed forever. Now here they find theirselves again, God has called the Kimreys back they feel to two more precious little souls. Both medically fragile and in need of urgent placement. The orphanages they are placed in are neglectful of the children and they need rescuing as soon as possible. The fees are upwards of 30,000. While that is quite a large sum it pales in comparison to the lives that will be saved. Your donations will equip this family with the funds they will need to get these kids out of there forever and into a loving home where they will be orphans no more. Expected travel should be Metcha trip around August/September and their Gotcha trip should be January/February of 2019. Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
