.Meet the Colopy's.

I can't believe it is already November, the season for Thanksgiving.  This month we have another new partnering family, the Colopy family.  They are awesome and I love how God opened their hearts through meeting their daughter.  From advocates to parents - God brings families to adoption in many different ways.  Please visit their blog to encourage them on their journey and shop Hannah James this month to financially contribute to their adoption.

"We are so eager to get Leidy, our daughter, home to her new brother and sister.  She is a sweet, smart, and caring little girl who loves to laugh and joke around." ~ Amber Colopy

When did your family start the adoption process?
We had the honor of hosting Leidy (our daughter in Colombia) in the Summer of 2011 for 6 weeks through a program called Kidsave.  They are a non-profit organization that helps older orphans find permanent families.  We always knew we wanted to adopt but at the time our plans were to just be an advocate family.  It wasn't long before we fell in love with Leidy and knew we wanted to be her permanent family.  Shortly after we found out we were pregnant with our daughter.  Our family of 3 was quickly growing into a family of 5, we were thrilled.

Where are you in the process?
We have just received approval from Colombia and are waiting for our referral to travel.  We are praying that we are able to travel to Colombia soon so we can bring our daughter back before the holidays and her birthday in January.

Where are you adopting from?

Why did you chose Colombia?
We hosted Leidy through Kidsave, their summer miracles program brings older orphans from Colombia here in hopes of finding these children permanent homes.

Words of wisdom getting you through the adoption?

Throughout November 45% of Hannah James profits will go to help the Colopy's adoption to help bring their daughter Leidy home.  
As always, thank you for the support!
