In the heart of a quaint suburban neighborhood, a remarkable journey of love, faith, and the transformative power of adoption unfolded for the Poss family. Landon and Teresa Poss had always carried a deep desire to expand their family, and they believed in providing a loving home to a child in need. Their path eventually led them to Lutheran Family Service’s Down Syndrome Adoption Program, a program with a philanthropic mission to save children diagnosed with Down syndrome from the tragedy of abortion.

The Poss family’s unwavering belief in the sanctity of life perfectly aligned with Lutheran Family Service’s commitment to ensuring that these precious children had a chance at a bright and fulfilling future. The Posses saw this as an opportunity to make a profound impact on a child’s life.

As the adoption journey progressed, the Poss family had the joy of introducing Sol-Alexa, a vivacious and joyful child with an extra chromosome that only added to her uniqueness, to her big sister, Tessi. Tessi, with her radiant heart and enthusiasm, had been eagerly waiting to welcome a new addition to their family. Her love and acceptance were integral to the warm and nurturing environment the Poss family sought to create.

What made their adoption journey even more remarkable was the support they received from Lutheran Family Service. Recognizing the extraordinary importance of their mission, the agency waived all agency fees, allowing Landon and Teresa to focus solely on providing Sol-Alexa and Tessi with the love, care, and nurturing environment they both deserved.

One sunny Sunday morning, the Poss family gathered at their local church to celebrate a momentous occasion. Sol-Alexa, surrounded by her newfound family and big sister Tessi, was baptized. This sacred ceremony marked her entry into the Christian faith and served as a testament to the love that had brought her into this world.
Landon, Teresa, Tessi, and Sol-Alexa have formed an unbreakable bond filled with laughter, love, and cherished memories. Sol-Alexa’s unique journey stands as a testament to the Poss family’s unwavering dedication and the transformative power of love.

This heartwarming story of the Poss family and their beloved Sol-Alexa and Tessi underscores the importance of providing children, particularly those with unique challenges, a chance to thrive and find their place in a world filled with endless possibilities. It is a shining example of Lutheran Family Service’s mission to save the lives of children vulnerable to abortion and to create loving, faith-centered families through the power of adoption.
