Did you catch that??

In Our Passed Over Babes Giveaway we have over $600.00 worth of prizes included....

But over at A PERFECT LILY - my sweet friend Patti has a Pure Love Giveaway going on that is worth $1,000.00 in prizes....

Patti happens to be the Christmas Warrior for TWO OF OUR PASSED OVER BABES....Robyn and Artem!!!

And she has lovingly offered for ANYONE who gives to THIS Giveaway to be allowed to be entered into HER Giveaway.... THAT IS OVER $1,600.00 IN PRIZES!!  You don't have to donate to Artem or Robyn to be entered.  DONATE TO TWO OF OUR BABES AND THEN GO TELL PATTI!!!

So if you donate.... LEAVE ME A COMMENT HERE so I know you donated (without a comment I can't put you on my list) and then CLICK HERE to let Patti know that you donated and she will enter your name into her Giveaway too!!

If your name is already on my sidebar.... Just go tell Patti that you already donated!!!  

For your information... Patti is raising money for Robyn and also for the Kehm family...

The Kehms are leaving NEXT WEEK!!  

Last winter, they originally committed to one little guy... 

sweet Peter...

And through Patti's efforts, they were FULLY FUNDED for Peter.

But the Lord tapped them on the shoulder and after much prayer and consideration.....

They are bringing TY home too...


Just writing that makes me cry.  

I need a Kleenex..... sorry....


Anyway....

Ty's adoption adds another $5,000.00 onto their bill.

They have some of that but still need about $3,000.00 more.

So Patti is not just raising money for sweet Robyn but she also added TY onto her Giveaway!!

Oh my.... I need another Kleenex....


So when you hop over to Patti's blog to let her know you donated to TWO of our PASSED OVER BABES... there is NO pressure but consider donating to the Kehm family to help them out!!

The Choice

Yesterday I started a Giveaway. 

A Giveaway for 13 children on the Angel Tree who have been on Reece's Rainbow the longest.  The babes who have been passed over again and again. 

Look at my sidebar..... SEE THE HALL OF FAME NAMES OF THOSE WHO GAVE YESTERDAY!!  

21 people donated over 500.00 to the PASSED OVER BABES!!  THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

                                 Yegor                                        Sergei                                     Spencer 
        
                 Yegor's Christmas Warrior                Sergei's Warrior                    Spencer's Warrior- ME!!



I'm going to be honest.  Deciding which kids we should 'pick' for the Giveaway was beyond hard. 

I am LOUSY at choosing because I would just choose them all.  So after I received the e-mail with the Giveaway offer, I e-mailed Michelle at RR and asked her to give me a list of the kids who have been on the Angel Tree the longest.  She sent me her list and after I looked it over, I immediately set out to add MORE kids onto the list.  I had 21 kids on the list within just a short period of time.  Stopping there was agony.  But picking and choosing was also agony.  None of it was sitting right.  There were too many kids.  The goal was to give exposure to those kids who have just not been noticed.  With 21 babes on the list, there were too many kids.  So in the end and after talking to Debby - we decided to let it be a God-list instead of a Julia-list.  I took the list that Michelle gave me and THAT was the list of kids.  Removing kids from the list - MY PICKS - was hard.  Okay - it was agony.  I grieved to take them off. 



                                 Meredith                                      Nikita                                       Paul 
  
                         Meredith's Warrior                   

But after I looked at Michelle's list - after I put each child on the blog and linked them - I realized something rather sad and profound.  The vast majority of the kids on the list were babes I HAD NEVER REALLY NOTICED BEFORE.  I had passed them over them too. 


                        Robyn                                    Dimtry                                      Mark 
   
                      Robyn's Warrior                         Dimtry's Warrior

Dear Friends - THESE BABES NEED THIS EXPOSURE.... Next year most of the children pictured here will be too old for the Angel Tree.  They not only age out of their baby houses, they age up on Reece's Rainbow.  That means that they will receive even less exposure than they have now.  There are a ton of babes in the older sections on Reece's Rainbow who used to be on the Angel Tree.  They weren't adopted.  They just aged up. 

These PASSED OVER BABES NEED US!!


                               Jin Wu                                     Arina                                   Danila 
 
Jin Wu's Warrior                                                                  Danila's Warrior

Please donate and please share and share and share and share...  All of these babes have Christmas Warriors and some of those Warriors have their own Giveaways going.... So if you donated or are going to donate to ANY of the kids above.... click the links to their Christmas Warriors.   You may be pleasantly surprised to discover that your donation gets you double prize opportunities!!!

The Passed Over Babes

On Saturday I opened up the Angel Tree and began to scroll through the faces.

Many of them new faces... first time Angel Tree children. 

But many were way too familiar.  And it saddened me.  Faces of children who have sat for two or more years on the tree.


                               Artem                                  Sergei                                     Spencer 
   

Children who will AGAIN be hanging ON a tree this year instead of sitting UNDER it.  Children who have spent one more year of their lives isolated and alone.  Most of them passed over because of bad pictures or because of sad expressions on their faces.  How to get them noticed?  How to get them from being passed over another year??


                           Jin Wu                                     Arina                                   Danila 
 

What could I do? 

I clicked on several of the links.  Prayed over them - wondered.   What could I do?  I felt the Lord nudging but what could I do?  I don't have money for a big Giveaway.  I'm well aware I have done precious little for Spencer's grant account.  Artem is still without a family.  There are so many more.  So many more. 


                               Robyn                                    Dimtry                                      Mark 
  

They all have Christmas Warriors so why shouldn't I just concentrate on my own???

What could I do??

Yet the faces of those who have hung for so long lay heavy on my heart.  What could I do?  God was nudging but what could I do?


                                 Meredith                                      Nikita                                       Paul 
  

Amazingly, God wasn't just nudging my heart.  Another Mom's heart was also being nudged.  He nudged her enough that she sent me an e-mail.  On Saturday morning about the same time I was staring at faces on the Angel Tree she was writing me a letter.  Her Angel Tree child has been wasting away on the Tree too.  No family in sight.  What could she do? She had some money set aside and offered it to me for a Giveaway.   We could raise money AND AWARENESS for Spencer and for her little guy.  And anyone else I chose. 

I sat stunned and in awe.  OUT OF ALL THE ANGEL TREE KIDS... Her Angel Tree child was ONE OF THE CHILDREN I HAD CLICKED ON.  HER LITTLE GUY WAS ONE I HAD PRAYED OVER!

Sergei

Dear Lord.  The Father of the Fatherless nudging hearts into action. 

All the faces of the little ones whom I recognized on the tree from last year... and the year before.  They flashed in front of me as I read her offer.  THOSE were the babes I wanted to help.  Those little ones.  My Spencer, My Artem, Her Sergei and more.


     

I know I can't do much but I can do something.  I can give those kids another opportunity to be SEEN.  Put their faces out.  Remind you that they have been waiting FAR TOO LONG.  The passed over babes on the past Angel Trees.

So here is the deal...

The kids above have all been on the Angel Tree since 2009.

All of them are close to or are already transferred.
