I am a Special Education Teacher who has always had a heart for adoption since I was a little girl. I’ve previously been a foster parent and though that was a rewarding experience, I knew I wanted to do more and adopt a child to provide them a forever home. Adopting as a single parent has its own unique journey, but there is no shortage of love for my soon-to-be daughter.

Waiting Child

Orphan | Bulgaria

My adoption journey began a year ago April 9th when I was officially on board with my agency; I connected with the Bulgaria program and began the process to adopt my daughter with Down Syndrome. It has been such a rollercoaster of a journey, but I know that all the hard-work of fundraising and working extra jobs to bring my daughter home will be SO worth it! She is deserving of much more than concrete walls and metal cribs in an orphanage; she is a daughter of The King, Lord God, Our Savior and she is already loved beyond measure.

Ms. Ellien

Widow | Tennessee

Ms. Ellien lost her husband in 2016. She and her late husband have three adult sons and several sweet grandkids. Miss Ellien attends a local Church of Christ, has a good sense of humor and loves her family and community. I work at the same high school as Miss Ellien's son Johnnie, and he put the two of us in touch with one another for this project. She could use some help around her house and I feel so honored to bless her through this service project!

A Different Kind of Fundraiser
