Aaron & Marinda Skeesick

Nashville, TN

Aaron and Marinda have been married for 4.5 years. Aaron is in concrete construction and Marinda is a Children’s Ministry Director. We both have a love for children and wanted to adopt before we were married. When we began to start a family, we had a miscarriage and multiple unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant afterwards. This led us to one of the most challenging yet rewarding journey’s we have been on in our marriage… adoption!

Thompson

Orphan USA

We leaped on faith and mailed out Christmas cards on December 18th at noon sharing we were adopting. An hour later, we received a call that our profile was chosen by birth parents. We met them the next day and had a wonderful visit. God provided peace during the visit. Our adoption specialist called 15 minutes after we left and asked if we were ready to take home 3 week old baby boy Thompson for Christmas! The next day December 20th we became insta-parents with less than 24 hours’ notice! Praise God we said yes!

Ms. Cari

Widow Nashville, TN

Ms. Cari is the widow we will be serving. She was diagnosed with mental illness in the 80's, and the lack of knowledge and treatment for such things left her widowed with no family connections over 20 years ago. Yet Cari has found true spiritual family at Bethel World Outreach Church. Cari has experienced the truth of God's Word -- that God's love heals any rejection, and that no one is so broken that His grace can't mend. Being widowed for 22 years, Cari’s home and yard can use some TLC.
