A Special Message from Stephanie Carpenter:
Here are the photos I could not share with you during our 2 year wait to bring home Hope Noelle Junjun! We said YES to this precious child when she was an emaciated child with no file and no hope. We chose to name her Hope Noelle and upon learning of her plight asked our agency to work with the director of her orphanage to not only prepare a file but to also do the finding ad that needed to be done prior to the file. We waited and prayed and began the work on the US side.
Most doubted her adoption would ever happen. Well it has and she is home – we give all Glory to God. She is an amazing little girl who turns 9 in a few weeks. We are the blessed ones. Adoption changes lives but not just the.lives of the children being adopted but it will change you. Do you want to be changed?
If you ever thought of adopting please don’t just think but ACT! You will never be the same.
Brittan Faith is now the baby of the Carpenter family. At 6-and-a-half years old, she is the size of an 18 month old. She is a precious, gentle soul that survived a lot of trauma in her orphanage – yet she is alert, watching everything and has already bonded to her new family. Ellianna has in fact, decided that Brittan is “her baby.”
After a brief stay in Hershey Medical Center for seizures, Brittan is doing well and growing quickly! Though she has multiple special-needs and delays, she is a treasure worth the world, with a face to melt any heart. How Great is Our God – the Father of the Fatherless! Thank you to all who prayed and believed alongside us during our journey!
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” Mark 11:23
