Josh & Deborah Yoder

Wakarusa, IN

We have been married since May of 2011 and have continued to grow in our love for each other and for the Lord! We both are math teachers and love pouring into the lives of students and the youth of our community. We have been hoping and praying to bring home a child through adoption for many years as we long to raise a child to know our Savior.

Baby Elliana

Orphan USA

This past October we were matched with a Marshallese family in Arkansas, and we will be bringing home our baby girl in April! Our hearts are full of joy and wonder as we praise God for the opportunity to become parents and to show our daughter Christ's love and mercy!

Ms. Ruth Ann

Widow Wakarusa, IN

Ms. Ruth Ann is the widow they will be serving. Ruth Ann lost her husband in February of 2012 after 41 years of marriage. Ruth Ann's home is in need of some tender loving care. We feel honored to bless her through this Both Hands project.
