I am so excited to introduce you to my first Rodan + Fields, From Faces to Family, family!! When I started this business in 2013 I had the dream of helping others bring home their children by way of adoption.
It's only fitting that our first family is just that, family! Peter's cousins are in the process of bringing home their third and fourth child!! I am so excited to share their story with you today.
Here is their amazing adoption story!!
We began our adoption journey in 2006 when we started the process to adopt from China. We had no idea that once we entered the program, the wait for a referral would continue to increase for the next several years. While we were waiting, our agency offered a "concurrent adoption" program. In 2009 we began the process of also adopting from Ethiopia, and 16 months later we brought home 16 mo old Natalie Grace in June 2010. Then, 2 years later (Sept 2012), our first China adoption was finally completed when we adopted Josie Noelle, an adorable 17 month little girl who had recently had heart surgery.
As we approached Josie's one-year post placement report, we decided to begin adoption number 3. Initially, we thought we would adopt another infant girl. We quickly learned that greatest need was for families willing to adopt little boys through the "special needs" program. Soon, we were on the path to adopting (we thought!) one infant boy. God continued to guide and redirect. Fve weeks ago, we officially accepted TWO referrals for TODDLER boys in China. The oldest is 2.5 and will require corrective surgery once he is home. The littlest is 19 months old, just 8 months younger, and had a difficult infancy with severe malnutrition and pneumonia, among a few other things. So, adoption number 3 became adoptions number 3 AND 4!!
We are currently waiting for our "official" approval letter from China and then will complete more paperwork to receive our travel approval. We are hoping and praying that we will travel this fall!
I just love Cory & Terri's heart for Jesus and for children!! I am SO excited for them as they expand their family even further!!
Fifty percent of our profits from Rodan + Fields this month will go towards bringing those sweet baby boys home!!!
