Jonathan and Britney Coyle live in North Augusta, SC with their three girls, Hannah (9), Reagan (6), and Emily (2). Jonathan has worked at Kimberly-Clark for the past eleven years. Britney is a registered nurse but enjoys working as a homemaker and homeschool mom to their girls. The Coyle family attends Big Stevens Creek Baptist Church, and they are in the process of bringing their little boy, Josiah, home through international adoption. Their house full of girls is so excited to welcome a little brother!
John and Dessa Edwards live in Martinez with their three boys, Noah (9), Lukas (6), and Hayes (4). John is an elementary school science teacher, and Dessa homeschools their sons. John and Dessa, married eleven years now, have known since they were dating that they would like to pursue adoption at some point. Three years ago their family began that journey by supporting local foster families, and eventually opening their own home to foster children. They are grateful for all that their season in foster care taught them, and the relationships they enjoy because of it. As the Lord often does, He is sending their family in a slightly different direction, and the Edwards are currently pursuing a domestic infant adoption. The boys are eager to embrace a new sibling (or two!), and John and Dessa are excited to expand their family. They look forward to sharing their hearts and home with a new little one, and to sharing with others how beautifully our Creator weaves our stories together.
Trey and Ashley Nixon live in Evans with their three children Leyna (6), Avery (4) and Silas (2) and Ashley’s mother Jan. They are currently in the process of adopting from Haiti. Trey served in the military for 14 years and Ashley is a former graphic designer. They currently own their own Real Estate Investment company, Nixon Construction & Design. They are partners with Journey Community Church and have gone on multiple mission trips with Journey to Haiti. God has given them a heart for orphans and they cannot wait to meet the newest member of their family.
David and Keller Perry live in Evans with their 3-year-old daughter, Lillian. David is Production Director and the afternoon host for 88.3 WAFJ, and Keller stays home with Lillian and also teaches piano lessons part-time in their home. The Perry family attends Abilene Baptist Church, where David and Keller met when they were in 1st grade. They have now been married eleven years. God has been guiding them in their decision to adopt for many years. They both have always had a heart for adoption, and in 2011 began volunteering with an adoption agency. During that time they felt God telling them it was something they needed to pursue. They were personally able to see a beautiful picture of how God adopts us into His family, and they desire to demonstrate His love by welcoming a child into their family. They started the adoption process almost three years ago and are excited to bring a new little one (or ones!) into their home.
