I am so thankful to be a veteran Reece’s Rainbow Angel Tree warrior. At this point I am able to see the fruit of my previous efforts to find my sweet little babies a family. Also, because I am asking you to help Julie find a family, it is nice to know that your hard earned donations are not being wasted!
Many of you remember my first Angel Tree boy, sweet Kai! Kai is now HOME with his family. Unfortunately they chose to pursue their adoption anonymously, which is their right, so I do not have much information on him. I do know that your blessings were put to good use and he is happy and doing well!
Asher, my last year’s boy has a family! They are in the process of working to bring him home.
And I am Facebook friends with his mama. His parents are so sweet and very young, and just welcomed their first baby, a little girl. You can read about his new family here: http://bringinghappinesshome.org/.
I feel so blessed that two out of three of my sweet Angel Tree babes have families. Unfortunately my little boy from two years ago, Sonny is locked behind closed doors in Russia. He was already transferred to a mental institution when they closed their doors and it does not look good for him. The change between baby and preschooler is shocking. My poor, poor little boy.
Please keep him in your prayers. His funds were transferred to Henry in South American on Reece’s Rainbow. Henry is still waiting for a family.
As sad as I am about Sonny, I know that God does not waste anything. And it is so wonderful to know that his adoption grant is sewing the seeds for Henry to find a family!
Also, I know that Sonny’s picture has been seen by many and so many people have prayed for him. Sweet Sonny is not forgotten. Please continue to pray that Russia opens its doors to foreign adoption. For the near future, children with special needs in countries like Sonny’s have their BEST HOPE for a future the United States or Canada. I know that their countries can and will change, but for now, please help little babies like Julie have a hope and future with A FAMILY and NOT IN AN INSTITUTION!
Seriously check out that crib without a mattress! This picture was taken in Julie’s country. How my heart breaks for these tiny, precious ones.
