In 2007, God put a specific calling on the hearts of the Carlisles to take in one child who needed fostering and also adopted internationally. They have experienced the miracle of adoption by adopting three daughters and fostering a son. After the adoption of their first daughter, Ellie Jeeah, the Carlisles have continued their passion to help and serve families with the same call. The Carlisles live in Pine Mountain Valley with their growing family of four boys and three girls. They will adopt their fourth daughter early in 2018 from China.
In 2008, God opened the Perkins’ eyes to the cry of the orphan. They were deeply touched by witnessing two friends’ international adoptions and felt God’s calling to do the same. With four girls and one boy, in 2010 they adopted their son, Grant and in 2012 they adopted their daughter, Ruthie. The Perkins live in Columbus, Georgia.
Meet our director:
Elizabeth Vann is a Harris County native who comes to us with a background in marketing and fundraising. She is a wife to Chris Vann and a mom to three beautiful little girls (Ava, Eden Grace and Hosanna). Elizabeth was first introduced to Jeeah’s Hope at the beginning stages of her own adoption journey in January, 2017. Upon arriving home from China with her daughter Hosanna in May, 2018, she felt the Lord stirring her heart to continue her involvement with orphan care. Elizabeth is passionate about supporting families as they answer God’s call to care for the fatherless and we are excited to have her!
