Another Princess for the Campbell Family

Billy and Angela have been married for thirteen years.  At the time of their marriage they created a blended family of three children.  These children are now adults and have children of their own.  Angela desired to expand their family as she has a strong love for children and always dreamed of a large family.  She worked as a social worker for seventeen years with most of that time spent working with children and their families.

In 2006 they once again returned to China to adopt another daughter. At this point they felt their family was complete.

In 2010, God placed special needs adoption on Angela’s heart. After a night of prayer asking God if this was His plan, she awoke and the first Bible verse she saw was “I will not leave you orphan. I will come for you.” John 14:18 This was the answer! And what a gift they received! Their 3 year old daughter came home on Christmas Eve in 2012!

Since they just adopted in December of 2012 and they are a one-income homeschooling family they are in need of assistance with funding.
