Ellie joined the family this January for post surgical care, and since then has become an invaluable part of the Hoffman family. She is the cute, spunky, silly, sweet, and all in a small package. The Hoffman’s are in a race against time to complete her adoption so they can repatriate to the US, where Ellie can get the much needed medical care on her road to recovery. The family has spent almost $12,000, with an estimation of another $20,000 to go, therefore have been brave enough to share their story online to elicit your financial support to reach their goal.

“For the last 5 years we have been trying to grow our family, praying God would bless us with more children. In those years before moving to China we had been seeing many doctors for our secondary infertility with no real answer to what was happening(or not happening). Doctors also did not have a clear answer for the miscarriages I had suffered. Those years were filled with many tears and confusion. We were not sharing our situation with many people; we didn’t want the sad looks or people not wanting to share their joy of pregnancy with us for fear of hurting us. Honestly too, I couldn’t handle sharing without bursting into tears. In those years of tears God shared a verse with me that I clung to: Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I was unsure of what that future was but I knew whatever happened I could trust in the Lord.  (see their website for more of their story)
