About The Heuchert Family

Michael & Melissa

Hello! Our names are Mike and Melissa. We have been together as a couple for eleven years now, married nearly eight. Our paths crossed September 11, 2011, while volunteering at a Minneapolis bike event. After spending the entire afternoon in conversation, we exchanged numbers and the rest is history. We share a love for biking, culture, art, music, and travel.

Prior to marriage and starting a family, we both traveled extensively. In fact, both of us can trace our desire to adopt back to experiences we had abroad. Mike volunteered at an orphanage in Mexico. While there, he and his friends painted a mural in the recess area and played basketball and soccer with the kids. Melissa spent several years living and traveling in developing countries where she witnessed the poverty of children, too often, endure on a daily basis. These experiences helped shape our view of the world.

We feel extremely grateful for what we have been given in life and what to share our many blessings with our daughter, Diya. We were matched with Diya last December and were immediately struck by her warm and curious nature. We are so excited to bring her home and welcome her into our family!

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.
