Lisa O’Brien

Oswego, IL

Even since Lisa O'Brien was a college student, and became deeply connected with an orphanage in Mexico, God put adoption on her heart. For many years she has hoped to be able to make adoption a part of her story. Lisa's desire has always been to adopt children who have known rejection.

Simon & Solomon

Orphans Uganda

Years after God placed this desire in Lisa's heart, she was living in Uganda, where she met Simon & Solomon. These twins boys had been abandoned by their parents and the effects were obvious. It didn't take long for them to bond with Lisa, and eventually she took them into her home as a foster parent. Lisa, Simon, & Solomon can't wait to have the adoption finalized and be a Forever Family.

Ms. Velma

Widow Oswego, IL

Velma O'Brien is 100 years old and her husband Leon passed way last November, just a few months short of his 101st birthday. She is also Lisa's grandmother! Her son has been trying to help her keep up with the house, but is now 70 years old himself, and it has become more than he can manage alone. We're so excited to serve her!
