Thank you for taking time to read our story. We are John and Alisa Rachan. We have 2 children: Eliana who was adopted is 4 years old, and Ava is biological, and is 3 years old. We have always desired to have a large family and considered building it through biological means and through the ministry of adoption. However, when we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility early in our marriage, we decided to pursue adoption instead of extensive medical treatments. Eliana’s name means God has provided, and we truly feel that her life was an answer to our prayers. We have an open adoption with her birthmother and family, and we are blessed by this relationship. Ava was a surprise gift from the Lord as well, as we did not think that we could conceive. She was born about 6 months after Eliana. Her name means breath of life, and we are thankful for her life and for the friendship that our two daughters have with one another. They are truly best friends.

          We have been trying to grow our family for a few years now and are feeling led to pursue adoption once again, because of our unique story, and the joy that adoption has brought to us already. We are fully approved and are hoping to be matched soon. We desire to raise additional funds through AdoptionBridge to offset the substantial cost of adoption, travel and legal fees. Thank you for your prayers and considering donating to us! We are excited to meet the little one that God adds to our famiily.
