The Galloway Family

Our story started in the fall of 2008, before we were married. We were both working at a children’s ranch in Texas. I was the weekend respite for the girls’ house and school cook, Scott filled in wherever they could use him in the boys’ houses and school. We loved working with the kids, and I loved watching Scott work with the boys.There’s nothing more endearing then a man playing with kids. Read More

The Vink Family

My name is Michelle Vink and my husband is Scottie Vink. We have been married for 6 ½ years. During the first 3 years of marriage we were unable to have our own biological children. Before we got married, we had always talked about adopting children, because both my husband and his younger brother were adopted by his aunt and uncle when they were 6 and 4, so we always knew that we wanted to adopt, we just had planned on doing it after having biological children.

The Crow Family

When I married Derek, thirty-two years ago I never dreamed I would become the momma to eighteen beautiful children, we have thirteen biological children and five adopted. Through the years we have seen seven of our biological children grow up and leave home to start families of their own. We had six biological children at home when we found out about a sibling group of seven that were soon to be orphaned due to neglect and abuse. We began the process of preparing to adopt them, as we couldn’t imagine them being split. Read More

The Lunsford Family

My name is Blake, and I adopted my kids in June of 2014. Growing up and entering my 20’s, I was very “success” oriented. I was driven and cared very much about going to college, getting a good job, and climbing the corporate ladder. I put everything I had into this goal, and eventually obtained my MBA and a job I loved as a Senior Executive. I relocated every few years since, and as part of my most recent job I relocated to Kansas City. After several years, I began to love the area and decided to buy a house and settle in one place. I hadn’t been in my house very long when I had a strong feeling something was missing. Read More
