We are the Manning family! God started putting adoption on our hearts during the first few years of our marriage twenty years ago. We have two biological sons. They are 12 and 10 years old. We completed our first adoption in January 2015. We adopted a beautiful 17 month old little girl with cleft lip and palate from China. We named her Michal (her name means, one who is like Gos) as God instructed us to. We got her here to the USA. We have taken her for 4 surgeries and speech therapy three times a week. She is smart, sweet, and oh so beautiful inside and out! We are blessed to call Michal our daughter! She is now 5 and a half and thriving! We are currently in the process of welcoming another beautiful four year old little girl to our family. We will name her Moriah! She is deaf. We already have great plans in place to get her hearing aids or a cochlear implant so she can hear, and we have made arrangements for her education. Our dossier is complete and being sent to China now. We hope to travel to China in September or October 2019 to get Moriah and bring her home! Please pray for us and consider making a donation to Moriah’s adoption fund. We received a MATCHING grant through Lifesong for orphans provided by the TIM TEBO ADOPTION FUND! We are super excited about that and invite you to give so your donation will actually count TWICE! Thank you and may God richly bless you and yours!
