Update on Gavin

We just found out last night that dear Gavin has not been transferred .... YET! 
He is still in the baby house! 

THANK YOU DEAR LORD!

Not ALL is good news though...

There were three little boys all with Down Syndrome at that same baby house together....

My Gavin...

Sweet Tristan

and precious Alexander....

It was ALEXANDER who was transferred.  

THERE IS NO REJOICING IN THAT NEWS!

Tristan and Gavin are next.
All three of these boys are going to a place that is off the beaten path. 
A closed place.  A hidden institute filled with Lost Boys who are living out their lives alone and lonely.
 
THIS IS WHERE ALEXANDER HAS BEEN SENT.
 
Thankfully - They are OPEN to Alexander finding a family!!  HE CAN STILL BE ADOPTED!!
He is STILL available. 

HE HAS $7,105.00 in his grant account
That is huge!!!

Come on.  Somebody go get him!!  He turns six in April!!  Please!  He has been on Reece's Rainbow for TWO YEARS and has been passed over by everybody

NO ONE HAS EVER ASKED ABOUT THIS CHILD

EVER!

Break.my.heart

Gavin turns six in February.  HE COULD BE TRANSFERRED ANY DAY.   He has close to 1,000.00 in his grant account (angel tree plus his other grant money).  Maybe that doesn't seem like much but...That is how much grant money Aaron had when we committed to him.  GOD PROVIDES!  HE DOES PROVIDE! 

Tristan too is on the transfer list.  He has barely 700.00 in his grant accounts.   He needs money and he needs a family.   He is so little.  Helpless.  Where are you church??

ALL THREE OF THESE BOYS NEED FAMILIES!!

I can't stand the thought of these three tiny boys in the back of a line of boys who are twice their size.
Alexander, the boy NOBODY wanted, is already there. 
I rejoice that Gavin is not there yet but he is going soon. 
Tristan is right behind. 
Three little boys.

One already a Lost Boy.. two on their way. 

Come on church.  Step up.  They need money in their accounts.  They need to be rescued. 

Plain and simple. 

Isaiah 1:17 
Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.

  1. All of the waiting children on the RR site are so very precious... but it is the "at risk"-kids that really break my heart. And the list is so awfully long! I'm a Christmas warrior for two girls that are nearing transfer too, and the thought of little children ending up in mental institutions is sometimes too much to bear.

    I want to thank you for your blog. You are doing some very valuable work for these children!

  2. I am trying to get money together for Gavin. I would love to hang him on my tree. So sad what the kids have to go through. Since you seem to be in the know.. Do you know if the group 17 kids (other angels) have been transferred yet? I heard they were overcrowded and that they were being transferred this month. Tanner, Kyle, Parker, Kirk, Lori.....

  3. Nadia's home for 21/2yrs. I feel like the kids there are part of her orphanage family and it hurts to see them passed over and transferred. I sent your "lest we forget" post out to my small group from church. I thought it was very poignant and the church NEEDS to hear this message spoken more loudly and more clearly than ever before!!!

  4. I want o thank you for this post, you really opened people's hearts. And there was ONE family that inquired about him....... US!!!! The House family!! We have been asking about him for weeks now, but just found out that he has been transferred but didn't know he could still be adopted!!! We ar working towards him now.

  5. Julia, since the picture of Brady walking with all the bigger boys, my heart has been breaking, again. Since adopting our boys last December and then coming home and worrying so much about Joseph finding a family (praise GOD he did) after we had to leave him, my heart literally needed to heal a little and I needed to concentrate on Max and JT. I was in EE for 12 weeks at the end of 2009 and although I did not quite share your adventures, being out of the country that long is exhausting. The Lost Boys have brought me back to heartbreak and action. I am Tristan's Christmas Warrior and my 40th birthday is his 5th birthday. My husband and I are going to try to raise a full grant for him by the end of the year. Thank you for waking up my heart and for advocating for all of the Lost Boys.

    God Bless,
    Jolie Harris
