As we celebrate our 10th anniversary this year, I am reminded daily of the children that have called Seamark Ranch home.  Many keep in touch and share their accomplishments and their trials with us.  It is such a blessing to see what God is doing in the lives of our Seamark family-even the trials.  

We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:3-5 

A recent contact with Michael Heinz is just such a blessing! Nine-year-old Michael came to live at Seamark Ranch after a disrupted adoption. A sensitive young boy with an endearing smile and a likeable nature, he found a safe, nurturing home and family at Seamark. Michael joined a scout troop that met a Seamark, and with support from his housedad and troop leader, he participated in a Pinewood Derby and camp-outs. Michael learned to hunt. He played lacrosse and other sports on community teams. Michael grew into a kind and confident young man. After four years at Seamark Ranch Michael was adopted into his “forever family”. Of course, he will always belong to the Seamark family, as well.

We are so proud of ROTC Cadet Airman Michael Heinz pictured here with U.S. Congressman Brian Mast at a military ball. Michael is a fine young man with a great future ahead of him.

Please join us as we give thanks for each of the precious young lives transformed by God’s grace over the past 10 years and join us in praying for more children to find a loving home at Seamark Ranch.
