Mark and Rachel Parkinson have been happily married 16 years. We have three beautiful children.. Christian, Naomi and Ella. We have a fun farmette where we enjoy all of our animals and plenty of fresh air!
Adoption has been on Rachel’s heart since she was a little girl…she dreamt of having her own orphanage one day. As time has gone by and prayers for direction made, the Lord opened their eyes to the needs of the orphans of Eastern Europe. Thus has begun our amazing journey leading us to commit to two beautiful older children with special needs. We feel God put these specific children in our lap and told us to see them as He sees them…His beautiful girls. That they are good girls in a bad set of circumstances and need someone to give them a chance,a family. I feel God has seen and heard their cries for a family and is answering them. The older,16,could be put on the streets literally at any time. We believe God will preserve her as I know He has a big purpose for her♡ please pray for her to find favor to stay until we can get to her♡ they are sisters and have such a sweet bond. Our heart is to keep them together ♡
We feel so blessed to be the ones called to bring them into our home and call them our own……they are in a very tough place and could be separated soon. We are raising funds to bring them home as soon as possible!
***WE have been awarded a $3000 matching grant from Chosen & Dearly Loved Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans!!! Amazing Blessing to us!!!***
Please join us in this amazing opportunity to bring home these girls that God told me He sees♡
