One more kid I've featured who has a family:

I have been busy trying to work on my own adoption process, mostly the education component... but I just had to post that Josiah, the very first little boy I advocated for here, is now on the MFFM page! I am so thrilled that he will have a home and a family. His family will be so blessed.

A girl who needs a mommy and daddy

This little girl is Serenity. They don't look like pictures of the same girl, to me, but there certainly is a little girl in Russia with Down Syndrome who needs a family. Serenity is definitely available and her heart is healthy. She's in the same region as Lindsey and Rebekah, Vitaliy, Juliet, Lizzy, Arden, Ralph, and Thad (click on the "labels" to see the posts).

Bradley, Bryant, and Brooks will have a family soon, as will a sweet girl named Amanda I mentioned on facebook but not here :)

If you want to donate to a family in process, please donate to the Burlingham family. Their son Andriy is blind. They are in desperate need of more funds to bring him home.

beautiful baby

Beautiful Lizzy is a favorite of one of my followers... she is only 1 and every little girl deserves a family. Somewhere there is a Mommy that God is preparing for Lizzy. Could it be you? She is so precious!

First, an update on our adoption process. We had our second home visit on Tuesday! After reviewing our entire lives, the social worker is still okay with us adopting. Next step: a lot more paperwork. Luckily, DH and I enjoy paperwork more than most. We still need to find the time to do it, though.

Remember sweet Vanessa?

She has a new picture!

Vanessa has had surgery to help her heart. The surgery was a success, but she may need another still. Good news for Vanessa, but the best news would be a family of her own--keep praying for Vanessa!

More good news--
Older children on Reece's Rainbow can now have money in their grant funds!

Dakota is 8 and needs a family very badly. I blogged about him before.

Dakota and other children can now receive grant funds, so if you felt led to give to him before but did not because the money would not go to him directly, now you can give. Please keep praying for Dakota!

Feel free to look back at all the kids I've posted before. They are growing and changing... and they still don't have families. Josie, Heaven, Valentin, and Teri Lyn have families; the rest are still waiting. Maybe you glanced over my quick post on Maeve. Maybe you weren't following yet when I blogged about Sammy. But save the four who were found, every child I have asked you to consider is still waiting. None of them is the child I'm hoping to adopt. The Church--and anyone else who recognizes the value of a little person others call imperfect--needs to step up and make sure these children have families.

Another little girl

Anastasia is four years old. She has Down Syndrome. She has a grant of over $4000. You could have her home before she turns five--before she is ever transferred.

tugging at your heart

Josie just found a family! She is one year old and has Down Syndrome.

This is Jack. He is almost two and does not have a family yet.

If that doesn't tug at your heart, you may want to make sure you still have one...

Josie and Jack are both precious children of God. Both are equally valuable in His sight. He loves them. I believe that He will call a family for every child who needs one. But he might just call one. And they might not answer. If you look at that little boy and know he's special, that he is meant to be your son, don't click away and assume someone else will go for him. Maybe God is calling you. Maybe you are Jack's only chance. Adoptive families are old and young, have no kids or many kids or anywhere in between. No family is perfect but maybe your family is perfect for him... and it's better than no family.

A little girl who lost her family

A family had been in process to adopt Victoria, a 6-year-old girl with Down Syndrome, but they were not able to complete the process.

Victoria is lovely and it seems she is still in a place where she is very loved.

Victoria has a grant of nearly $20,000, and the family who could not adopt her is committed to helping her new family fundraise. There's still a ways to go, as Victoria's region is more expensive (around $40,000), but that's still an impressive grant.

Do you think you could be Victoria's family?

Heaven have recently found a family! I advocated for her just last week, and she was only recently listed. If only all these little ones had so short a stay in the photolistings.
