Hello we are Shane and Sheelah Byrd we are so excited to be adopting a little boy from Eastern Europe. Our story started shortly after we were married in 2016. I had been previously marred for 13 years to Keith, and we had four beautiful children together. Tylor, Amber, Emily and Pierce. In November of 2011 the Lord called my husband home. We met Shane in 2014 who had never been married let alone had children and he jumped right into the role of husband and dad, but we longed to grow our family.My tubes had been tied a few years prior to us meeting, so we went through reversal surgery the whole nine yards with no luck. The whole time talking about adoption and the very real need for kiddos all around the world needing a family. Needing somewhere to call home. A place for kisses and hugs, santa and the tooth fairy. So we found Lifeline Children's Services in 2018 and started our journey. But the financial burden can be great especially having to be out of the country for six weeks. So we are reaching out for help and hoping you will prayerfully consider helping us bring our little boy home.
