About The Large Family
Todd & Michele
We are Todd and Michele Large. We have been married for over 24 years. We have two biological sons ages 22 and 20, who are currently attending college. Due to medical reasons, we could not have any more children. In 2014, we began the process to adopt. We adopted our oldest daughter, now 10, from China in November 2015. In August 2016, we returned to China to adopt another little girl, now seven. In 2020, we felt the leading to adopt again, and began the adoption journey for another daughter from China.
Then COVID-19 happened and stopped everything in its tracks. Even now, China has still not resumed international adoption. Our adoption agency began working with Hong Kong adoptions. We have been matched with a little girl. A few months later, a little boy became available who was the little girl’s brother. Once we learned her brother was up for adoption too, we knew we could not allow the siblings to be separated. We are closing in on the final stages of their adoptions, and are hopeful our new children will be able to spend Christmas in their new forever home.

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.
