John & Melissa Heiss

Grand Haven, MI

We are the Heiss family. We’ve been married for 14 years and caught a vision for adoption about 5 years ago, when God changed our hearts. In the past five years, we’ve fostered 22 children, adopted a daughter domestically, and look forward to the adoption of our 5th child. We need your help in this journey! More importantly, we want our son to know that his story, his future, is because God paved a way through a tribe of people to let him know he is loved.

A Waiting Son

Orphan Colombia

Who would have ever imagined a Facebook tag would be the spark that would ignite a fire in us to travel to Colombia. The story of a boy who was months from aging out is what caught our attention but getting to know him is what attracted our hearts. Our adoption journey has been filled with delays, bumps, and an abundance of tolls. We know it will all be worth it. We are only months away from giving this child a forever home!

Ms. Pam

Widow Grand Haven, MI

Moving is a tremendous task! Our team is excited to help Pam through this transition by preparing her home to sell this spring. The team will be painting, replacing ceiling tiles, installing trim, cleaning, and organizing. Pam and her late husband Jeff have a heart for children and love to spend time with their grandchildren. Pam lives in West Michigan and attends the same church as our family.
