Your Story Can Be A Blessing To Others

The Living Hope newsletter aims to keep the adoptive families connected with each other and to keep families informed of our agency's latest activities.  We welcome families to share their adoption journey or their lives after adoption.  We believe the encouraging stories will become a blessing to the adoptive families and many others who are considering adoption.  If you want to share your adoption story, please contact Lynn at  

Cooper's Story

Cooper is an adorable 5-year-old boy.  He is described as resilient, smart, and easy going.  He loves new experiences and the excitement of the unknown.   

Cooper participated in Living Hope's 2016 Winter Hosting Program, and joined his forever family, the Hostert family, in October 2017.  At the time of the adoption, Cooper was diagnosed with developmental delay and abnormal liver function.  After returning home, with many medical evaluations and testing, Cooper was found to have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Receiving Cooper’s diagnosis and knowing that it was a terminal illness was difficult for the family.  Because Cooper’s particular form of muscular dystrophy has never been seen before, the family also worries about not knowing when Cooper’s health will turn to the point of immobility.

The Hosterts love Cooper and are dedicated to providing him with the very best life possible.  They are thankful that Cooper has found his way to their family and they look forward to giving him the best life he can have. 

This summer, Cooper and his family had an incredible trip to Disney World through the Make-A-Wish Foundation where they had so much fun!

The Hosterts adopted 6 children from China through Living Hope.  They said China holds a special place in their heart.
