Gifts Have Been Made

Jackson 2007The children of Russia have been denied families by their president.  He has made it clear that they will not be lifting the adoption ban in the foreseeable future.  Sadly, Abbott is stuck there, in a mental institution, most likely for the remainder of his life. I pray that a family will bring him home, but statistically, that rarely occurs there.  The special needs children are not the ones who escape through domestic adoption.

Reece's Rainbow has prayerfully made the tough decision to gift the Russian childrens' funds to children who are available for adoption.  Lives will be saved, just not Russian babies lives.  They allowed advocates to have a voice in the gifting of the funds. Abbott's funds have been given to Jackson, who is in PRC.

Jackson's fund is now at $3865.40. My first goal, besides seeing him on MFFM, will to be to round that total out to $4000. Next, we'll get him moved onto the $5000+ Moving Mountains page!  Donations can be made by check or Paypal.

UPDATE: Jackson's fund is up to $4027.40!  Please keep sharing his story!!

UPDATE: Jackson's family has found him!  Praise the Lord with me!! Visit his family's blog to follow their journey and to see NEW pictures! Once they have their FSP (Family Sponsorship Page), I will post with a link. Until then, donations can not be made.

Mulligan Stew 2013

The Mulligan Stew over at Julia's blog is an incredible blessing.  The Lord truly multiplies tiny, heartfelt offerings!


The very first child to find a family has been announced!  I know his future family and they are SO thrilled to have been able to begin this process.  Please keep them in prayer as they begin to fundraise for Sutter's homecoming.


Barton, a sweet boy who is getting close to aging out, has a $500 matching grant!  He is fifteen and only has a few more months to find a family, or he will forever sit in a cage. See the pictures here to see how he will live if  he's not found.  Even a few dollars goes a long way in easing the burden of a family.


Iris has a large fund, but no family, as of yet.  She is such a sweet child. I have seen videos of her. She's so gentle and loving!  Please consider helping spread her lovely face, so her parents find her!  She's only halfway to fully funded, so adding to her fund is also crucial.

Psalm 139:13-16

For it was You who created my inward parts;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You
because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from You
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all my days were written in Your book and planned
before a single one of them began.

That you would read this post was written into the Lord's book and planned ages ago.  Will you go bless a child in His name?  It is such a little thing to us, but has eternal repercussions. May God bless you!
