NELI for the Junell Family — WA

Dean and Lacey Junell have been best friends for 9 years and married for nearly 8. Together they have three wonderful and spunky children who range from 11 to 4 years old. Dean and Lacey have always had a heart for helping others – Dean works as a firefighter paramedic, and Lacey is currently earning degrees in elementary education and psychology, with the dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher. They both just want to make a difference in the lives of others.

Long time cheerleaders of other adoptive families, the Junell’s have loved following along and supporting other families in their greatest adventures. Lacey became familiar with Reece’s Rainbow and grew to learn the stories and the faces with intentions of advocacy. Then one day they saw her face, and everything changed. Something in this little one’s eyes sparked a fire in them that they could not ignore. Upon emailing her agency, they were crushed to hear that a family had already committed to this sweet one. Six months later, out of the blue Lacey received an email from the same agency. The previous family was not able to complete the adoption. Both heartbroken for this child and overjoyed at the chance to make her their daughter, Dean and Lacey committed immediately.

This family is no stranger to special needs and purposeful parenting, as one of their children already has complicated diagnoses. They are willing and able to put forth all the work and time necessary to bring this precious child home, and to help her thrive once she is home.

Any help is immensely appreciated in their journey to bringing home the littlest Junell, adoption truly takes a village!

DAVY for the Peters family — WA

Joe and Ronda fell in love while in high school where they met one night during a high school football game. A couple of years after graduation they were married and soon started their sweet family. They have been married and best friends for 23 years and have four beautiful children. Ronda has been a stay at home mom enjoying raising their children and Joe has worked for the phone company for the last 21 years. They enjoy their family time getting outdoors and hiking together. Family is very important to them, always putting their kids first and being involved in all their activities. Though the years as their family was growing they experienced the loss of two babies due to miscarriage which then started the conversations of adoption. They then had two rainbow babies three years apart, their youngest being born with Down syndrome. The beautiful experience of love and joy from their son being born with an extra chromosome inspired more conversations of adoption and in particular a child with Down syndrome. Ronda came across a photo of Davy from a fellow mom of two children with Down syndrome, one that they had adopted, who was advocating for Davy on Instagram. Ronda said she read the words “Be sure to show Davy’s picture and pray for him and for a family to adopt him…… Maybe that family is you?” Ronda felt a wave of emotions come over her and as she looked at Davy’s photo she knew in her heart that she was his mommy. Joe and Ronda soon after started the adoption process knowing Davy would complete their loving family. They are very excited to be on this journey and are trusting in the Lord as he leads them through this adoption. Joe and Ronda would love the support of prayers and the generosity of donations to raise funds to help bring their son Davy home.
