About The Grier Family

Jonathan & Kimberlee

We are the Grier family, Jon, Kim, Jacob, Sawyer, and Lawson. Jon and Kim met in college and have been married for 12 years. Jon is an IT Director and Kim is a pediatric hospice nurse. In line with Kim’s passion for supporting children, she is in the process of receiving her doctorate in nursing from Duke University with a focus on supporting vulnerable children.

We have three beautiful children, Jacob (10), Sawyer (6), and Lawson (4). We are experienced foster parents and were blessed to foster and then adopt Lawson from foster care. Jacob is in 4th grade and enjoys swimming, playing soccer, and riding his bike. He is a sweet and sensitive child who loves to help others. Sawyer is in kindergarten, very outgoing, and loves to talk and play, especially with trains. Lawson is in preschool and loves all sports, animals, and especially food.

Due to our experiences with the foster care system, we know the need for loving families for many children and this inspired us to adopt again. We wanted to open our hearts and home to another child, and due to my husband’s ties to South America, we wanted to adopt from Colombia.

What is a Brittany's Hope Adoption Grant?

Brittany’s Hope believes in the fundamental right of all children to have the security and love of a family. There are an estimated 153 million orphans living around the world (UNICEF – 02/2011). These staggering statistics are heartbreaking considering a large number of these children are special needs, who have little or no value in the eyes of their own country. They are left to languish in institutions, where they receive minimal care and live hopeless, helpless lives.

The cost of international adoption can be overwhelming and is only further compounded by the medical and accessibility costs a child with special needs presents. Our Adoption Grant Program provides grant monies while giving families the opportunity to assist Brittany’s Hope in raising funds so the next child may also be united with their forever family. The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child,” takes on new meaning as the “seeds” of the adoptive family’s friends, family and neighbors take root and help provide future families with adoption grants. With a gift to Brittany’s Hope, a donor’s monetary support of the Adoption Grant Program means double for the adoptive family.
