Our Families Brought Together Two babies in great need. Two families had an abundance of love to give.

About 17 years ago, KyUMH’s Adoption Program guided these two separate families through the adoption process for John and Jacob. Sharon and Tom Johnson had multiple fertility treatments after their first child was born. Heartbreaks and disappointments followed. She turned to God in prayer.Their firstborn son, Alex said,“Momma if your baby making-parts are broken, our new baby could be adopted.” So with a hopeful heart and encouragement from Jeannie Howard, Director of Mary Kendall Adoption Program, the Johnson’s completed the home study process and traveled to a Russian orphanage. When Sharon first saw Jacob, he was six months old. “Jacob was lying in a bed that looked like a prison. But that bed held my baby and my greatest hopes and dreams.” Ironically, Jacob shares a birthday with their firstborn son, Alex. Read more on page 5...

From the President's Desk: By Rev. Randy Coy, President & CEO

As we finished the groundbreaking ceremony, this passage came to mind. And now that the construction phase has begun and bulldozers are moving dirt and changing the face of what will become our new campus, the passage continues to become even more special. The people of Israel were headed to a preferred future, a land flowing with “milk and honey.” God was leading them to a place filled with the promise of hope. But it was a place that they had never been before. There

would be challenges and in essence saying, “Follow fears to overcome. There Me, go where I go.” would be a “new reality” There are some things about to live into. There would this transition time at the be setbacks and some tears Home that are similar for us. along the way. Such are the joys of home ownership. We have not been this exact way before. This opportunity God’s instruction to them to begin anew is was clear. “Keep your eye “When you see the ark of the both exciting and covenant of the Lord your God fearful. We know on the Ark of being carried by the Levitical that we will the Covenant priests, then you shall set out surely experience and go where from your place and follow it, it goes.” (my that you may know the way some challenges paraphrase) along the way. you shall go, for you have That ark, not passed this way before.” However, we perhaps more are going with —Joshua 3:3-4a RSV than anything the promise else, was of His divine presence, the sign of God’s constant presence. In having the knowing that will lead us people follow it, God was to take the right steps.

Courageous Pioneers Who Answered God's Call By Melinda R. Smith, Vice President of Advancement

It is an exciting and challenging time as we prepare to move. As our President, Randy Coy said, “We believe we are standing on the shoulders of those courageous pioneers in 1871 who dared to do something to help those who couldn’t help themselves. We are grateful for their commitment and their sacrifice. It is our intention to follow and honor their commitment.” Those pioneers were our ancestors who saw a need to help destitute widows and orphans. Today, more than ever, we need our KyUMH friends to walk beside us to carry this life-changing ministry into the future. Now is the

Children’s Voice

time to consider a generous end-of-the year gift. It can help with your taxes, and our move into our future. In addition to cash gifts, you can give gifts of assets such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have increased in value. If you give the stock or other property before selling it, you can avoid required capital gains taxes— you receive the tax-deduction. If you are interested in transferring a mutual fund, stock or bond to KyUMH, contact your brokerage firm and let them know. They can advise you on how best to proceed. A charitable annuity is another way to assure a steady income for you for the rest of your life, while also ensuring

a legacy gift to benefit the children and youth we serve. If you decide to review your estate plans at year-end, remember that including KyUMH in your will or estate planning can help you make a lasting gift to the KyUMH children, while also providing relief from gift and estate taxes to your children. If you have questions about transferring stocks, bonds, or property, charitable annuities or the benefits of including KyUMH in your will or estate planning, you can contact me, Melinda Ryles-Smith, at (859) 873-4481 and I will be glad to help you all I can. Together, we can assure that this ministry of healing and hope, will reach even more of Kentucky’s abused, abandoned and neglected children.

Groundbreaking Event Huge Success Devon Lindsey PR & Communications

Attorney General Andy Beshear, Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo and other state and local officials along with former KyUMH residents broke ground July 18 to celebrate a new chapter of hope and healing for Kentucky families. The ceremony jump started the creation of a 31,000 square foot program facility, renovation of a historic home to serve as an administrative space, a new 12,500 square foot Chapel and Training Center and an equine therapy complex to provide the best care for children with histories of abuse and neglect. “The nature of how we help kids has changed dramatically and the current campus simply doesn’t meet our program needs,” said Reverend Randy Coy. ”We want to invest in programs that will remain viable and relevant for the future; develop programs that will directly impact the greatest number of Kentucky families and communities and maintain good stewardship of all resources entrusted to

us. These principles helped guide us in our decision to purchase the 35 acre property and design our Nicholasville Campus,” said Rev. Coy. Relocating KyUMH to the picturesque Jessamine County property will not only be therapeutic to those served, but the strategic location also provides a partnership with one of the best alternative school systems in the state. “Besides the new location being serene, it gives us access to an excellent alternative public education system which is where our youth thrive.” Melinda Ryles-Smith, sees a vision for the new campus that involves more emphasis on meeting families in their homes and communities. “We realize that there will always be a need to care for the most traumatized children through a residential facility. From our years of experience working with children who are abused and neglected, we know in many cases, had there been early intervention, the crisis in the family could have been alleviated.” For videos, media and more information from the Groundbreaking Ceremony, visit kyumh.org or the KyUMH Facebook page.

An Evening of Blessings At Mary Kendall Casey Neely, Devlopment Coordinator

On August 22nd, many experienced a beautiful night that was called "An Evening of Blessings." Many blessings were experienced that night, such as: • The sweet fellowship shared among those who care deeply about children in need. • A wonderful meal prepared and served by volunteers of all ages. • Staff of the Mary Kendall campus who touched our hearts with stories of lives changed through the hope and healing love of Christ.

• An alumni of the Mary Kendall campus who told of how she was raised in a loving environment at the Kentucky United Methodist Homes of Children and Youth. Now, she and her family have devoted themselves to giving generously to children and youth at KyUMH. • An opportunity to give generously to partner in the work of brining hope one child at at time. We give thanks to the Lord for the blessings experinced that special night.

WE LOVE YOU VOLUNTEERS!

Our Families Brought Together Story continued from cover... Devon Lindsey PR & Communications

Within the year of Jacob’s arrival to America, The Johnson family became close friends with Leiann and Dave Lashbrook because their children played Little League baseball together. Dave Lashbrook and Tom Johnson also had gone to the same high school. Leiann Lashbrook said “We always felt like we would love to adopt. ” After completing the paperwork, they flew to Russia and met John. He was six months old, very low weight, and appeared to be developmentally delayed.

Bible Verse Here?

She said “a door opened and a woman is bringing in the most beautiful baby. We took him out to play and knew then, ‘John is our baby.’ We knew he was the baby God meant for

us.” On Friday, Oct. 13, 2000 at the courthouse in Russia “we heard ‘I approve this adoption.’ We were overjoyed! It was the best Friday the 13th ever!” Upon returning home the two families discovered that John and Jacob were from the same orphanage, despite the fact that the Tangarot region of Russia is about the size of France and has about 40 separate orphanages. Leiann said, “So John and Jacob ended up in Owensboro, KY with families that are such good friends. In two words that’s GOD’S WILL.” Today, John is a junior and Jacob is a senior at the same high school. John plays trombone in the marching band and taught himself piano. John plans to pursue a career as an electric lineman. Jacob is an honor student and plans to play college baseball as a left-handed pitcher. He also volunteers at Blessed Mother Church. He plans to pursue a career in Accounting. Jacob and John are remarkable young men. They have a future filled with hope because of their loving parents who began their

John

adoption journey with the help of KyUMH’s Adoption Program. Sharon expressed it this way: “We could not have imagined what the Lord had in mind for us. We are still living the story and still feel so blessed and thankful for everyone who played a part in bringing our families together.”

Christmas Gifts for our Young People

As Leiann put it, “John and Jacob are friends and will always have that special bond!” Together, we can change the future for young people who deserve to experience God’s gift of wholeness of life. Adoption Program info here?

Help us provide a special Christmas! Please consider donating gift cards. We give those gift cards to our staff and they can buy gifts that are personally chosen for each young person. We also give gift cards directly to our kids! For children who live with us, getting to leave campus and go shopping is a fun outing.
