The Least of These......

Oh how these boys are not the least of these....they are loved, valued and chosen by God and praying by a family that see's their faces and knows they are called to move.

These are the last remaining beautiful faces of the children that asked us for help to find a family that we know and are close to our children and we know.  

Please take a look at their faces, read their story, pray and help us PUSH them.  

We thank you!

Meet Raul!  Raul is a very engaging young man.  He is full of smiles and really likes learning English.  He has a few words and some sentences already his belt.  He will try to have a conversation with you and will repeat what you say in an effort to understand you.  He prefers to be in the presence of adults verse many of his peers.  He is very professional in a business-like manner when he speaks with you and how he dresses.  You will often find him in his school uniform.  He loves to carry around his green brief case with a frog on it.  He is ready to make a deal.  He is not one to be found playing sports or soccer on the field but engaging in conversation or helping the adult supervisors in the boarding school.  He is very well liked by the staff and helpful to them.  He loves swimming and just being near you.  He is very receptive to hugs and willing to give and take them.  He is one to grab your hand, hold it while you walk and it just makes his day!  My children went to school with Raul and they explained to me he is a Christian and believes in Jesus.  He would speak to my daughter often about Jesus and his faith.  :)
Meet Luke & Jason!  These two brothers are awesome.  Love them to pieces.  These two are very close to our son we just adopted Bogdan.  Luke came up to me with Bogdan the first day I met him and asked me if I would help him find a family.  His brother Jason is at an age where he wants to fit in with the big kids but is not accepted by them yet so he can be treated badly.  One time he went to play soccer with them and they said some awful things to him and he started crying and I chased him down and he fell into my arms crying.  That is when I asked him point blank do you want me to help you find a family.  I cannot make any promises but I will fight darn hard for you.  He said yes please.  He has still held firm to hoping a family will come for him and his brother.  They both are incredible soccer players.  They love it, this is their passion and what they cling to to help the days pass.  They both play on teams.  Both good students and tough as nails.  Luke is soft, kind and tender and Jason is more tough in personality that he wants to look like he has it all under control but is breaking inside and is just a kid trying to find his way and hoping a family will come for him.  Both their smiles can light up a room.  I have fixed boo boos on Luke and he has allowed me to and thankful for the help as these kids get wounds all the time and no one to fix them unless serious.  Luke is a snuggler and loves hugs.  Jason once he knows you he will let you hold him and you talk to him and he hears you seeking encouragement and direction.   Both these boys had asked and are hoping for a forever family to come for them.

  1. Would you mind if I put Luke and Jason on my blog, and advocated for them?
