An Angel Tree Lookback

This is my third year to do Angel Tree. I was so blessed to be able to raise money for two previous boys and so thankful that so many of you donated to my babes. I know how hard people work for their money, and it touches my heart that you would give your hard earned money to two boys that I love.

I feel like I need to give you a small account of how your money was used!

First, there was my Kai. That sweet boy! You helped me raise over $2600 for his grant fund. That was a miracle amount, and it has NOT been wasted…

BECAUSE KAI HAS A FAMILY IN PROCESS! Its not surprising with that adorable face, and I can’t wait to be able to share with you that he is home! His family has a generous grant to help them handle the cost of international adoption.Kai-Asia.jpg.pagespeed.ce.mK-Ho2bznV

And then there was my Sonny. A beautiful little boy who so desperately needed a family.

As you know, Sonny’s country closed their doors to international adoption. My heart grieves for Sonny… death awaits him or at best, life in a cage. There will be no love or hugs or kisses or family in this SEVEN YEAR OLD BOY’S future. Do you think he deserves that life because of an extra chromosome? It is almost more than I can bear sometimes, but I do my best to cling to hope that either someone will step forward in his country or the doors will reopen and someone will find him.

There is a little bit of sunshine in the closing of Sonny’s country. A little ray for another little boy named Henry. The more than $1600 that you gave to Sonny has been re-gifted to dear Henry in the hopes that a family will come forward for him.NE134-230x300

Henry is on a different continent than Sonny, but still needs a family just as desperately.

So you see, nothing you have been given has been wasted.  Andrea Roberts often says that it is NOT for lack of families that these children waste away. People see the cost and they get scared. Most people don’t have $20, $30, $40k just laying around and they are nervous to step out. Please help me remove that great obstacle for my two little boys, Asher and Prince today!
