In December of 2018, the Wallaces brought home their son Dima, adopted from an orphanage in Western Ukraine. He was the first child adopted from that institution. He has settled in well and is an amazing kiddo. He’s made major strides! But there are so many children still there waiting. One of Dima’s friends desperately wants a family and is about to “age out” which means he would be ineligible for adoption and would have to be in that institution for the rest of his life. His story is tragic and the thought of him never having a chance for life outside of the orphanage broke their hearts. They have started the process to bring him home to their family where he will be a loved son, and where he will receive therapy and education. He dreams of traveling, he loves learning, and best of all he will be able to be with his best friend Dima. Please help them to bring him home! Help to give him a hope and a future! They are so thankful for the community of love and support for him!

Meet the Howard Family! Greg and Angelina are college sweethearts who were on a mission to serve the Lord, wherever He may call. After graduating their first year, they got married and started their family. Before they had biological children they had a discussion that some time down the road, they hoped adoption would be a part of God’s story written on their family.

The Lord blessed them with 4 beautiful children, one of which has special needs. It was the most difficult time during their marriage when they found out that their son of 7-months had Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome. Yet with all the unknowns of their future, they accepted their fragile child and trusted that God had a plan for them, despite the pain and hardship and 24/7 care for their son. They knew God would be faithful to their family even when things just didn’t make sense.

Angelina, who was born in Ukraine, realized how blessed they were to be living in America and had access to so many resources. They had a support system from doctors, school, family, church, and support groups. Unfortunately, in many Eastern Countries that is not the case and most parents with special needs children are encouraged to place them in orphanages.

The Howard family hearts were greatly burdened for other children just like their son that would never have access to the support and medical care that has allowed them to thrive. Throughout the last three years, they have been following other families through Reece’s Rainbow. Through this organization they have witnessed countless testimonies of such children being adopted into loving homes, provided medical care and love, and seen those children thrive as a result! Regardless of what condition a child is born with or what our limited perception of their abilities and potential of them are, they all belong in families.

Out of conviction, they simply began praying that God would so kindly show them how to move forward with adoption. More specifically, that the Lord will place a particular child in their hearts and show them who to adopt. One night after laying the children down to bed, they saw the profile of a certain boy and felt that confirming peace and love in an instant. They just knew that the Lord answered their prayer! Since then, they have not been able to escape the thought of how much Jesus loved them and gave His own life to them. We were all adopted into Gods family and they feel it is God’s love in them compelling them to love this boy unconditionally.

“We love because He first loved us” 1 John 4:19

Unfortunately, with international adoption there are many moving parts. Please consider partnering with them through prayer and financial support to bring their new son home.

Abby and Adam met in 2012 and were married the following year. They live in the Pacific Northwest with their two children Leo (4) and Magnolia (2). Abby is currently on pause from being a special education teacher and will return to the classroom once her children are in school full-time, and Adam works as an Account Director for a digital marketing agency. Adoption had always been in the back of Adam and Abby’s mind, and they were unsure of when the timing would be just “right.” After talking about it for a year they knew it was time and they were ready to figure it all out. Near the middle of their home study process, they received an advocacy email from their adoption agency and in an instant, they knew that they were looking at their son. They are excited to be on this journey and look forward to welcoming a third child to their family!

Celebrating 21 years of marriage and nurturing 8 biological children, Jesse and Megan are excited to add another gift from God through adoption into their family. Megan was two years old when her brother with Down Syndrome died at age 5 in heart surgery. Even as a two year old, his death had a significant impact on her life. The soul-mate that she baby-talked with, took her first steps with, and raced to beat to the Wonder Rocking Horse had disappeared. Her sense of loss has given her a love and bond to children with Down Syndrome. Megan was introduced to Reece’s Rainbow by a friend over 10 years ago. Following and praying for families in their journey of adoption and praying for babies to find their adoptive parents through Reeces Rainbow, Jesse and Megan are taking that leap of faith that now is the time to fulfill the dream of being one of those families. After living as missionaries for 10 years over seas, in 2012, Jesse and Megan settled back home in Washington State onto their fifth generation family farm. The Pearsons also have a 12 years old niece and a 5 year old nephew that were both born with Down Syndrome living close by. This provides an instant support group and two like-minded cousins for their adopted child to grow up with.

Adam and Siri Caudill enjoy life in beautiful rural WA. They are blessed with a biological daughter, Pia, born in September 2016. She is a sweet, smart and delightful girl who loves dolls as much as dinosaurs and trucks. Adam is a stay-at-home father and Siri is a veterinarian. They had both long felt the call to adopt a child, Adam having an adopted sister. Their hearts were reminded of this in an unexpected way.

They were overjoyed to become pregnant with a second child, a boy named Riku, who they lost in the second trimester of pregnancy. Riku had Down syndrome. Siri and Adam were prepared to parent a child with special needs and were devastated by this loss. As a result, they were made aware of the need for international adoption of children with special needs. They are thrilled to be in the long process of welcoming a young boy (“Myrtie” on Reece’s Rainbow) into their family from Eastern Europe. They found his profile and immediately felt drawn to him. He has spina bifida and associated hydrocephalus. Even though he is unable to walk and does not yet have a wheelchair, he does not let this hold him back. His spirit has captured their hearts. His personality is often described as sunny and he exudes a great joy for life. As every child deserves a loving home, they long to give him the love and medical care that he needs to continue to be such a happy boy.

They are deeply appreciative of any support they receive in the efforts to bring their son home.
