We are the Driver family of six, and God has called us to adopt children who are rocking the extra 21st chromosome! With our first adoption, we “felt” we were called to adopt a minor needs girl…and God laughed! As soon as we saw Lian’s sweet face, we just knew that he was our son. In 2016, we welcomed Lian, who has Down syndrome, into our family as our first adopted child. Since adopting Lian, our family has become advocates for Down syndrome adoption, counseling families who are considering adopting this wonderful, and many times, overlooked, special need.
With Lian thriving, we felt that we were ready to welcome another little one with Down syndrome into our family. We have been matched with a little girl that we are naming Ella Fēi. Her name, in the Shanghai dialect, means, “Let’s fly together”, and guess what? Cady is a professional artist and has sold hundreds of birds painted on hymnal pages to help Ella Fēi fly home! There are no coincidences in God’s world. While we have been working hard to raise the money for this adoption, we are so humbled and grateful for your heart towards helping orphans find a forever family.
Thank you so very much for demonstrating your love towards these wonderful children and for helping Ella Fēi fly home to us! We are so looking foward to sharing her story with you.
