We are the Snyder Family of Ohio. Our journey started almost 16 years ago when a mom and a child met and joined the dad in TN. Little did we know then the journey we were on! We never planned to have a large family, but the best laid plans are not always the things that happen. We are now working to bring home number 5!
We have been on a journey to add to our family since 2002 when I (mom) decided we needed one more. I knew we could love one more child and make one less orphan in the world. It took dad about 6 years to agree! Once he did we added a beautiful little boy to our family. He was a waiting child in So. Korea with some special needs. NOW… He is a happy, healthy, fun loving ball of energy and our son.
After Asher came home in April 2009 we felt complete. That was until we started seeing pictures of a little girl who really needed a family. She had been waiting for a couple years. Her needs we so great that not many people would want her. BUT you know what… we want her. We were told she would need life long care. We were told there were other healthier children waiting. We were told to reconsider. We couldn’t… she was our daughter and we WANT HER. Now we are waiting for her to come home from Korea. She is now 3 years old and a beautiful little angel. We cannot wait to meet her face to face. We expect her to be here in February of 2011.
What a journey of faith each of our children have been. We have been blessed by so many. My life is over flowing in gratefulness to all my new friends that have been praying for us.
