A Girl for the Hoppe family — WI

Kelly and Chad live in Madison, WI, with their 2 year old daughter, who is living with significant special needs. Chad works as a rural carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, and Kelly is a stay at home parent. They’ve been together 3 years, and married for 2.

Early in their relationship, they knew that adoption would someday become a part of their family story. At 21, Kelly was diagnosed with a medical condition that often leads to infertility. That following summer, she spent a month volunteering in Russia, where she witnessed firsthand the needs of children around the world who are waiting for forever families. Afterward, she knew that she wanted to adopt internationally someday. In 2016, Chad and Kelly’s daughter came as a huge surprise to them! While they briefly considered fertility treatments after not being able to conceive a second child, they decided to instead pursue their dream of international adoption.

One night, while looking through their agency’s waiting child listing, Kelly came across a 2 year old girl from Eastern Europe who intrigued her. After receiving her file, Kelly and Chad couldn’t stop looking at her photos and videos. This precious girl has so much life and determination in her, in spite of her numerous challenges. Many of her needs are similar to their daughter’s, so they knew that they would be well equipped to care for her.

They have stepped out in faith to commit to this child, knowing that they will have to rely on God to bring them the financial resources that will be necessary to bring her home. They greatly appreciate your prayerful consideration of a tax-deductible donation to their fund. Your prayers, thoughts, and support are appreciated as they continue their adoption journey.

RUBY for the Rosplochowski family — WI

The Rosplochowski family has their heart set on a little girl in Asia. Mike and Amy live in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and have two children, Owen is eleven years old and Brynn is seven years old. This little girl, who they are calling Ruby for now, happened to be advocated by several people looking to find her a family and needed medical care. Amy is involved in the craniofacial community because Brynn has a craniofacial syndrome and craniosynostosis, CFND. Several moms had noted how much Ruby looked like their daughters who also have CFND. Amy, Mike and the kids discussed adopting her right when they saw her photo and heard her story, but then they learned of how much international adoption costs and weren’t sure they could do it.

They discussed adoption on and off for the next year. Ruby was again being advocated for by several people. Amy began discussing international adoption with several people who had adopted before. They explained that raising the money to adopt is possible with a lot of hard work, persistence and faith. So at the beginning of 2018 the family decided to jump right into this crazy international adoption process to bring Ruby into their home.

Amy and Mike are very devoted to their kids and will be just as devoted to Ruby. They will teach her to love herself and her culture and help her stay connected to her cultural roots. They will find her the best medical care to help her grow up healthy and happy. They will advocate for her well-being, always.

Ruby is already very loved by her family and the community around her that is working hard to bring her home. They can’t wait to learn about all of the things she loves and encourage her to follow her dreams. They already know that Ruby loves to play outside from the short profile they have seen. At her new home she will have a large backyard with a playset, swimming pool, sand box and garden. They know she loves mandarin oranges which is also Owen and Brynn’s favorite fruit so they plan to buy oranges in bulk when she arrives! They learned that Ruby loves to play with stuffed animals and Brynn has her set with a room filled with tons of stuffed animals. In the winter, they can’t wait to have her try sledding and ice skating! Owen is a great ice skater and plays hockey so he is ready to teach her everything she needs to know about winter sports. Brynn wants for her to take dance classes and has been saving all of her own tutu’s and dance shoes for Ruby to use when she gets here.

The Rosplochowski’s are so excited to welcome Ruby into their home and family. They are so very thankful for everyone who has supported their family during this journey!

SEAN for the Langer family — WI

Mike and Cassie (Pronounced KC) were married in 1998 with the idea of a large family. 7 to be exact! But after having 7, Cassie knew she wanted more. The good Lord was willing, as they found themselves prego again!  It was another boy! A very special boy. Their little Mikey has Down Syndrome. He soon became the favorite in everyone’s heart. Not only the family, but the community and friends as well.

Everyone loves Mikey! He was perfectly healthy and conquered milestones quickly (except for talking. Oh well!) Mikey planted a seed. The family wanted more. They knew they wanted to have another Down Syndrome child in their family. But you can’t just order that, so they started checking into adoption. That’s when they found Sean. That was December 2016.  Sean is in an orphanage, where he has spent his whole life. Alone and waiting. He is 5 years old now and has Down Syndrome. He is tiny, malnouirished and sedated. He needs a forever home.  Everyone was very excited, but there were so many unknowns. Mike could make no rational sense of going so far to get a child they knew so little about. And the cost was WAY out of their budget. So they waited. They printed off all the pictures and have them all over our house and in frames on the wall. They prayed for him and prayed for a way that the adoption could actually happen.

One magical evening in December 2017, Mike and Cassie again had the discussion of adopting Sean. They talked about the serious threat that he may soon be transferred from the baby house to the institutions. This time Mike said “YES!”. They knew they were taking a huge leap of faith, but their Faith was strong. They know they have to get him out and they know God will help them save their little boy who sits waiting in an orphanage for someone to have and to hold him.

They are now in process of finalizing their home study and getting papers in order. Hopefully they will have their boy soon. Your prayers and support are what the family needs most right now. But the biggest, most necessary prayer is that Sean will not be transferred out of the baby house until the family can get to him, and save from this horrible place where he waits.

The Langers would like to thank you in advance for your financial support as well as your support in prayers and passing the word. THANK YOU!  Sincerely, Mike, Cassandra, Colton, Walker, Waylon, Haydon, Adeline, Porter, Weston, and Mikey
