Meet Ellie Sanazaro

In 2016, Ellie's world was forever changed when her daughter was born without the chromosomal disorder doctors had told her to expect. God used this event to change Ellie's heart and lead her down the path of adopting a baby with Down syndrome. Ellie is now passionate about spreading the message that EVERY child is an Image Bearer.

Meet Madison Kay

Madison is the amazing talent behind the artwork in "Image Bearer." Her favorite things to draw are people, animals, and plants. Madison has an extra special connection to "Image Bearer!" Madison's cousin, Mallory, has Down syndrome. So she had the idea to create an illustration inspired by Mallory! When she's not drawing, Madison loves playing video games and the piano! She also loves both drinking and making coffee as she works part time as a barista.

Meet Finn

This is Finn! He's the Finn-spiration behind Image Bearer. Finn was born in October of 2019. He spent 3 weeks in the NICU before coming home. He has Down syndrome and hearing loss. His first 5 months of life were spent in and out of the hospital, but he has been home, happy, and healthy since March 2020. Finn loves dancing, clapping, and splashing. Every day he shows the world that our value comes not from ability but from the fact that we are created and loved by God.

We give back.

Through May, we will be donating 10% of profits to the Bresson family adoption fund! Here's what Krista wanted to share about her family and their adoption journey:

"Hi! We’re the Bressons! I’m Krista, my husband is Adam, & our little dude Ephrem is creepin up on 5. We’ll have been married 14 years this summer & call Colorado our home. We absolutely love exploring this incredible world, learning about & connecting with all the beautiful people who live here. Adoption has been on my heart really for about as long as I can remember. I’ve always known God would take us on this path one way or another. Adoption is such a wonderful picture of the way God loves us & fully pulls us into His family. Ephrem was born in Ethiopia & has been home with us for just over 3 years. Throughout our time in Ethiopia, we fell in love with the culture & people nearly as much as we did our son. God has led us very clearly to adopt again & this time specifically a child with Down Syndrome. So early in 2019, Adam & I officially started paperwork to adopt from Armenia where there were at the time, & still are, several children with Down Syndrome waiting to be adopted. Just about a month ago, we finally got the best news that we’ve been matched with a sweet little boy - he’s a tad over two & we get to go visit him this week! We cannot wait to experience & immerse ourselves in his rich birth culture & learn as much as we possibly can, all the while diving deep into the bonding process & undoubtedly falling more in love with him. It’s no secret that adoption is pricey - & that’s even before you add several international trips on top of it all. We are so thankful for the support, prayers, help & love from this wonderful community. Much love! ✨"
