Dear Hanson, and so many other died alone and waiting.
Each of these children, and one more that we know of since, has died, waiting and alone, just this year. Some were beloved and had families striving to come as soon as humanly possible, some did not. There are more...to see the rest we are aware of, visit the Memorial Page of Reece's Rainbow. There are many, many other children in institutions around the globe who pass without ever being listed or loved. Only Christ knows them all.
This is why we advocate. This is why we yell. This is why we grieve when families struggle, why we fundraise all the time and why we celebrate when they finally reach their homes. This work we do is life saving.
As we remember Hanson.....
.....let us not become weary in doing good (Galatians 6:9).
Remembrances can be made to the funds of other Lost Boys, for whom it is not yet too late.
Dagmar, Pearson, Grady and Porter
Click their names to see their precious faces and drop a few dollars into their ransom funds. In Christ's name, please pray for these boys as they survive each day. Pray that they, too, would be chosen and spared a death alone and unloved.
God sets the solitary in families;
He brings out those who are bound into prosperity;
But the rebellious dwell in a dry land. Psalm 68:6
