Spokane Valley church, ONE*, is holding a benefit concert to help a Spokane couple adopt two girls that captured their hearts while in Haiti.
Tim Martin, a photographer for KXLY, and his wife Melissa hadn't decided when, or if, they wanted to be parents.
“We always liked kids, but we weren't sure if we were supposed to have kids.” explains Tim.
But a mission trip to Haiti changed that, and now the Martins are working through the red tape of adoption and trying to raise the funds they need to bring those two little girls home.
As part of the trip, the group spent a portion of each day playing with children at an orphanage. At first, the Martins were apprehensive, staying on the sidelines and behind the camera as others played with the kids. One day they decided to join in and that's when they met their girls.
“There are two little girls that chose us, that wanted to be with us,” said Melissa, “ The just wanted to be with us every minute and we wanted to be with them.”
