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.

DARIA for the Petrich family — VA

Their first experience with orphans came through a mutual friendship with two amazing people. David and Jane Daulton, heroes in the faith who have been serving orphans overseas forever. (not to mention adopting as many children as they can get their hands on) They invited both Kurt, Cyndi and Christella to join them on a missions trip to serve special needs orphans in the summer of 2015.

Kurt and Cyndi fell in love on the mission field. Both were widows. Cyndi and her daughter Christella took a giant leap of faith by saying yes to a mission’s trip to serve orphans overseas.They were not there 48 hours and they both knew God was calling them to the orphans.

Kurt was planning a trip to Nepal, to serve disabled orphans when God changed his plans and rerouted him to join the same missions trip with David and Jane. The three of their paths crossed (Kurt, Cyndi, and Christella) and they immediately bonded with each other, and their hearts were on one accord for these precious lost children.

Kurt and Cyndi were married October 2015 and in the two years since, they have made 5 trips back to the mission field to minister to the orphan children. They are presently working to help these beautiful children find forever loving family’s and to help forge a new plan that would end institutionalized care for them in this country.

During their journey they met a sweet brown eyed little girl who stole their hearts. This beautiful child desperately needs American medicine and a whole lot of love. We can’t wait for the Lord to bring her home and make her a forever part of our family.

JAZ for the Mason family — VA

For thirteen years the Masons have experienced the added blessing of having a child with “a little something extra!” Back in 2004 their first child was born with Down syndrome.  Life with him has been sometimes challenging but always full of lots of love and fun!   Since then they have added two other children to the family as well, another biological son as well as a beautiful little girl who they adopted in 2009 from Ethiopia.  Recently they have been feeling those familiar tugs placed on their hearts to add another child to their family, so when they saw the sweetest little pictures of Jaz and her bright smile, they began to pray and ask God if this was the child that was supposed to join their family. They felt clearly that this child was meant to be in their family and they have been excitedly pursuing her ever since.
