California Adoption Story

Faith in family bridges cultures
Suzanne and Tonye Holyde relied on their beliefs to help them realize a dream of adopting from China; now, they’re considering international adoption again

While at her Cayucos home on a June afternoon in 2004, Suzanne Holyde received an unexpected phone call.

Within minutes, she was a mother — again.

After two years of hoping, praying and relying on their steadfast Christian faith, Suzanne, her husband, Tonye, and their daughter Chanté, 9, learned they would welcome an adopted child, Ruthie, from China into their Cayucos home.

We saw our story on your blog and thought you might be interested to know that Ruthie is also from the Jiangxi province! Congratulations as you await your newest family member!

Suzanne,

Thanks for the nice comment. Sounds like our girls are pretty close in age, too. I'm sure Ruthie is as much a blessing to you as Ally is to us.
