The Thebo family is adopting again!

Kimberly Thebo
Kimberly Thebo Rockford, Michigan

Hello and thanks so much for taking the time to visit our page! We are Brian and Kim Thebo and we are adopting AGAIN:)  Our adoption story began 25 years ago when my 1st daughter was born at 1lb 9oz.  She was very premature and as a result is blind.  She has grown into an amazing young woman, graduated with a computer science degree, and lives on the other side of the country working at her dream job.  When we found out there were many blind orphans, I immediately knew that God's plan was for us to adopt one of these children.  In 2017 we adopted our first son Theo, who is blind and absolutely amazing.  Visiting his orphanage and seeing all the need was very hard and I wanted to bring all of the children home.  I didn't think we would be able to adopt again financially, but as Theo settled in we realized how awesome it would be to have another son and a sibling for him that was closer to his age, and that adoption fees should not prevent a child from having a family.  When we saw the face of a bubbly toddler learning to walk while being guided, we fell in love instantly.  We are very excited to be adopting our third blind child!  He is an adorable 2 1/2 year old with a smile that is completely contagious:)  We feel blessed to be his family and can't wait to hold him in our arms.  It takes a village and we could not do this without all of you! Thank you for your prayers and support, helping us bring our newest son HOME! <3
