Supported by Centerpoint Church Annapolis in 2017
Through Centerpoint Church, Love Gives, and watching the Reynolds and Sanchez families go through the adoption process, the Fargusson Family felt God's call to help children find a home. What started with
the intent to foster, ended turning into a call to adopt. They say the great need for families to adopt children with special needs, and felt God leading them in that direction.
On April 9th, the day that CP Annapolis moved into the new space, and also the day that Jay prayed on his knees for the first time at church, they found out that they were one of a few families being considered for a sweet 3 month old baby boy with significant special needs. Just a few days later, they were placed with sweet baby Ryder.
Ryder has a plethora of medical diagnosis, including septo optic dysplasia, optic nerve hypoplasia, panhypopituitarism, hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia. These diagnosis cause Ryder to be completely blind (with the exception of seeing some light). Part of these diagnosis mean that Ry doesn't make many of the hormones that a healthy body makes, so he is on a variety of hormone replacement therapies to maintain healthy levels.
Despite these challenges, Ry is the sweetest little boy ever, and can't stop smiling! He has truly taught our family what unconditional, agape love means, and we couldn't be more blessed to have this sweet boy as part of our family.
We hope to have Ry's adoption finalized by 11/22.
Matthew 28:5 & Ephesians 3:20 are the Fargusson's adoption journey verses.
