2 Girls for the George family — WA

Mike and Robin have been married for almost 8 years. They have 6 beautiful kiddos and another on the way. Mike works as a public servant for the beautiful state of Washington and is the worship leader at Lakewood Grace. Robin is a stay at home mom and wife, and homeschools their kids.

Adoption has been on Mike and Robin’s hearts for a few years now. They knew that God was specifically calling them to adopt children with disabilities. After much prayer, they felt that God was calling them to embark on their adoption right now instead of waiting until after their 7th baby was born. Their hearts were drawn to a little girl listed on Reece’s Rainbow. Despite her long list of medical needs, they knew that she was the one for their family. After more prayer and consideration, they decided to add one more little girl on this adoption journey. They were joyfully surprised to find out that another girl that they had on their hearts was available for adoption at the very same baby home.

The cost of adoption can seem daunting but Mike and Robin firmly believe that God has called them on this journey and He will provide. Any prayers, donations, and shares of their story are all deeply appreciated.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27

MYRTIE for the Caudill family — WA

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.

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!
