Project Home believes that every child deserves a home. We are committed to helping families with the financial burden that is associated with adoption. Below are some of the families we have given adoption grants to.
The Almquist Family
William and Gretchen Almquist have three biological children and have adopted two daughters from Ethiopia. They were given a grant in 2016 to adopt their son from China. Gretchen says that when she looks back at the adoption process, it was "hard, strenuous and expensive. But is was so very worth it! I don't even remember the stress and worry of it." They were worth "every tear, every minute, every prayer."
The Sandrik Family
John and Rachel Sandrik have known they've wanted to adopt for over five years. They now have a biological daughter, Evelyn, and are in the process of adopting a baby from Haiti.
The Allen Family
Monika and Paul Allen have adopted two children domestically. They were given a grant in 2014.
The Tabor Family
Steven and Erin Tabor have adopted two children. They received Isaac from Ethiopia in 2009. They adopted Ja domestically in 2014.
The Weber Family
Tim and Karen waited for almost three years to finalize their adoption of Nadia from the Democratic Republic of Congo. They were finally given permission to bring Nadia home in May 2016. Nadia has learned English and is adjusting nicely.
The Huon Family
As a couple, Jennifer and Damson Huon have worked in Cambodia ministering to the poor. They have worked with neglected and abused children and worked to bring education about human trafficking as well as education for parents. Through this they began to see the need for children to have strong and stable homes. They have the desire to have a child to love and pour their lives into. They are now in the process of adopting from Nicaragua.
“Thank you so much for choosing us for a grant. We can’t even begin to tell you what a huge blessing (and relief) it is. We know we are getting closer and closer to the moment we will meet our son for the first time. Again, thank you for choosing us and helping us bring our son home.”
Mr. & Mrs. Huon
The Dorsey Family
The Dorsey family adopted a little boy in June 2016. After adopting him, they decided to pursue adoption for a little girl that would be the same ethnicity and close in age as their adopted son. They believe a better way to display the testimony of God adopting us as sons is to adopt those who have been orphaned.
We were pleased to award the Dorsey family a grant to help them in their adoption journey and bring home their daughter.
“Thank you again for your generosity in helping us with the adoption of Candace Grace Dorsey.”
