How to Make a Difference / by Shannon Heick

Hello Everyone!!!! I am so excited to share with you what I have been working on! I want you to meet my brother and his family and learn a little about their journey! Aaron and Valerie have two biological children, who are 12 and 10. Five and a half amazing years ago, they brought home my sweet niece through adoption! It is amazing to experience adoption as an aunt! I can't even begin to imagine what is it like to be an adopting parent or sibling! Such a beautiful gift! She walked right out of that minivan and into my heart. And I know it is a God-ordained miracle.....adoption!

Once again, Aaron and Valerie have felt called, by the Lord, to adopt another beautiful child, not only to grow their family but to answer a call that God has really charged all of us to do. In some way or another. We are getting very, VERY close to a possible (everything in the adoption world is possible until it is for sure) phone call. And when they get this possible phone call, they will scramble to hop on a plane and fly many, many states away to receive their new miracle. A miracle who they have chosen to love, fully, no matter what.

I am so excited to be sharing this with all of you! I know there are so many of you out there who are on the lookout for ways to make a real difference!  To bless people. To be a go-giver. To extend a little piece of your heart to a child who needs a family. To be a part of something bigger than ourselves. To answer the call from God, to take care of the orphans and widows. I believe in my heart that there are those of you out there who will be so excited to hear about this story and will want to give, a little tiny bit or whatever God leads you to give!

Please consider watching this little 2 minute video I created.  It's just a small glimpse of who they are but I think you will see how big they love!
