Gifts for Graduates.

I have done a post on Bible Orphan Ministry before.  Today I want to tell you about one of the projects that they are doing to help the Orphans. The Gifts For Graduates Project.  Last year they gave gifts to them such as: bowls, plates, utensils, pots and pans. The Orphans NEED those things. We have them at our reach and we think we need them so much. We buy new ones and just throw away the old ones. The Orphans who receive them will not throw them away. They will keep them safe and use them always.

This is a post that was on The Bible Orphan Ministry blog.  It is about the graduates. The last bell ceremony.  It is very sad to see a girl almost my age crying because she knows she will be alone. ALONE.  I cried when I first saw it.  Please read it.

BOM needs our help. The graduates are going to be sent out into the streets soon.  BOM needs the money to be able to buy the gifts.  Please donate here.  Please help the people who are helping people in need.  Thank you.

These children need a home!

Today I have the privilege to tell you about children who where born in 1999.

First I would like to tell you about Landen.  Landen is a very special boy.  Even if he is not very social.  He is a person and is he deserves a life. He is a creature that God made and he is perfect!

He was born in February of 1999. He has brown eyes and dark brown hair.

Landen is so handsome. He looks like he is saying " Please give me a home, a chance. Please."

Next is Helena.

Helena was born in August of 1999. She has beautiful blue Eyes. That's all. Nothing more. She has Rosy pink cheeks and a cute little button nose. She will be thirteen in August. How sad. Most kids are excited about being a teen. She does not know what it is like to be a kid. She does not even know what it is like to be a baby. To be held in a Mommy's arms, or to be rocked to sleep in her Daddy's arms. She is going to be a teenager. Please somebody look into her eyes and you can see that she needs a family.  Please somebody give her a home.

This is Dahl.

Dahl was born in September of 1999. His nature is of calm. His eyes are gray. I am praying for him.
He was born with a family. Now he does not have a family. He needs a family. There is an empty spot in him that is waiting to be filled with love. That is waiting to be filled with a happiness of a family.

This is sweet, sweet Seth.

Seth was born in March of 1999. His eyes are a soft gray. His nature is of good. His is thirteen now. He needs a family.  Please give Seth a chance.

This is Tim.

Tim was born in of November 1999.
Tim is described as being communicative, inquisitive, sociable and kind. He is HIV+. Tim is one of the favorites at the orphanage. He goes to a regular school. His mother was a heroin addict and abandoned him at the hospital. He is very good about taking his medicine. He is hopeful when new adults come in that one of them will take him into their family. Tim has $4140.00 towards his adoption.

This is Daniel.
Daniel was born July 12, 1999.

From a missionary who visited with him in August 2010: “ Daniel is very active and friendly. He is affectionate and likes to play with and greet others. He proudly shows his work to you and enjoys cleaning and keeping a tidy room. Daniel has a great sensitivity to the immobile/special needs children, and often will bring them toys and water, etc to help them. Daniel is a loving boy who will do wonderfully in a family of his own”. RR does not typically advocate for children over the age of 10, but Daniel is a wonderful boy and deserves the opportunity to find a forever family.

More photos available, along with full social history and medical records. Single moms permitted, no more than 6 children at home, only one parent has to travel.

$145.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

This is Stephie.

She was born in 1999. She has Down Syndrome and alopecia.

Stephie has been moved from the orphanage to foster care, but she is still legally available for adoption and needs a forever family!
Stephie can say some words and understands everything that is said to her. She interacts with both children and adults but shows a preference for adults. She can identify objects in her environment such as the names of foods and animals.
She understands concepts such as big/small, high/low. She has a well developed attention span and participates in games with other children. She tends to prefer smaller group activities. She enjoys musical games. She feeds and dresses herself and has appropriate hygiene habits. She is also toilet trained. She is under the care of a dermatologist for her hair loss, but to date, no treatments have been effective.
 $237.30 is available towards the cost of my adoption! 
 Please take time today to pray for Stephie and spread the word about her!

This is Vlad.

Vlad was born in September 22, 1999.

From our facilitator who has visited with him: HIV. Vlad is very healthy and has the most striking green eyes! His life story is very typical. The boy doesn't have brothers and sisters, the mother died. Super boy. Physically developed perfectly well. By the fact very healthy, practically never ill. He is very fond of English, reads children stories without a dictionary, speaks good English. The boy is very communicative, always optimistic. He is very supportive with friends and very polite and obedient with the teachers and caregivers. Dreams about obtaining a family.
 ***Vlad is also an OLDER CHILD, and will have no opportunities if he ages out. His "orphan and HIV status" will follow him the rest of her life. Please give Vlad a chance to grow up knowing the love of a family and having basic the opportunities that he deserves. ***

$45.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

This is Tyler.

Tyler was born in October of 1999. Tyler is one of our oldest waiting children. He is SO handsome!

From his medical records: organic impact of damage of spinal cord; (spina bifida) Damage of functions of pelvic organs; Lower paraplegia

From his caregivers:

From an adoptive family who visited with him in February 2012: “We have really enjoyed getting to know Tyler. He is such an incredible kid! You just have no idea how impressed we are with him. He is very neat and organized, and takes good care of his things. I thought at first he was quite serious, because when I met him, he was posing for his photograph. Now, we’ve been able to chat with him using an interpreter. He LOVES to read- carries a book with him and uses the library here a lot. His favorite thing are fiction stories. Here, they have a lot of fairy tales, and he enjoys those, but I can so easily see him flying through any of the popular Christian fiction series for boys. He’s very smart, and everyone here really likes him. We’ve seen him with the younger kids, they all treat him like a big brother and he is so kind and gentle with them. Like the others we’ve met here, he seems very emotionally healthy- it’s just his legs that aren’t working, not his heart, mind and soul. He would just Thrive in a family! The hardest part about today came at the end. He asked how long it will be before his family comes to get him from America. I don’t know what to say- he’s been listed for nearly a year, and no one has asked about him. He’s so hopeful and trusting that he has a family and he doesn’t have much time left. I don’t know why he has gotten passed over- he’d be an amazing son!”

More photos available, married couples only. There is $407.50 towards Tyler's adoption.

Tyler is the same age as I am. Tyler NEEDS a family. He NEEDS love. Tyler IS special. Please somebody bring Tyler home. Please somebody tell Tyler that he is loved. Please somebody love Tyler.

Please spread the word about these children, please pray for them. Also you can follow my blog by clicking on the right of my blog " Join this site." Thank you.

Alayna Grace

We have been good friends for a long time with a family who is in the process of adopting a little girl. They were the ones who opened our eyes to children with UP syndrome. They are stepping out in a leap of Faith. They are trusting God and following Him. Here are a few photos of Alayna Grace (I cannot stop thinking how cute and adorable she is! Don't you dare tell me that she is not cute!! : )

These photos were taken on Valentine's day!

I bet she is thinking "Will you take this weird thing away!"

Just imagine, she has no idea there is a Mommy coming to pick her up and a Daddy to play with. She has no idea she HAS a family! She is so blessed. I am so blessed to have friends who care about angels from God. The angels that other people give up, the angels left behind. Alayna Grace you are NOT being left behind.

This is a photo of her name. I really like it. Alayna Grace is a beautiful name, almost as beautiful as she is! : )
If you want to follow their adoption blog this is their link.  I will go before you...
