Wrapping It Up


The Winslow Family has such a heart to serve the Lord, especially through adoption.  They have brought home six children already, and have two biological children, and are working on adopting more, making their family of ten a family of thirteen! 


Tragically, Zoey, their precious six year old daughter, passed away less than a month after they met her in her orphanage.  However, she went to heaven knowing she was cherished and a beloved daughter. She experienced their loving touch, heard the Word of God and was spoken to and held with tenderness.  




They are continuing with "Edward"'s adoption and will be bringing JoyAnna home, too.  Edward is ten and JoyAnna soon will be seven years old.  They will be celebrating their next birthdays with their family!!
