Fatherless Friday

Woo Hoo!!

All of our Passed Over Kids are now over the $500.00 WALL!!

I checked the Angel Tree yesterday... looking and looking for Paul because he is the little one who has been lagging behind everyone else.... What fun to see his picture on the other side of the $500 wall.  I was laughing out loud in my office when I saw him sitting there!

I mean look at this little guy.  The more Rob and I look at him the more we wonder why he goes so unnoticed.  He's such a good looking little guy.  I look at him and long to reach into the picture and pull him into my lap.  If you look closely you can see that he is standing in his crib. Hanging over the rails.  His jail cell.  No wonder he isn't smiling.  

And Nikita and Yegor...


They are little blonde haired imps.   I can just imagine what Nikita looks like when he is smiling.  I bet his eyes just light the sky.  And Yegor... He just plain cracks me up when I look at his picture.  He's got a mind of his own.  Can you just see both these little boys sitting at your table?  Running through your house?  Playing in the sandbox?  Wrecking wonderful havoc in your world?  

Arina?  What can I say about her with her sorrowful eyes and scratched up face?  Her picture is just plain rotten.  It breaks my heart to think she has been passed over because of a lousy picture and a bad haircut.  She needs a family who will look beyond her LOUSY PICTURE and see the little girl inside.  The family that steps out in faith for sweet Arina - I bet you are in for a massively wonderful surprise.  Please someone leap off the cliff for this little girl.

THANK YOU to the 97 people who have NOT PASSED OVER these babes!

We have now raised $5744.00.

Our new goal is to get our $500.00 kids over the $600.00 wall.

Arina only needs ONE DOLLAR to get to $600.00.
Nikita only needs $80.00 to get to $600.00.
Paul only needs $93.00 to get to $600.00.
Yegor only needs $95.00 to get to $600.00.

And boy would I really like to see at least ONE of our kids jump the 1,000.00 wall soon!!  Mark, Meredith, Dimitry, Danila and Spencer are all SO CLOSE!!


Okay... FOURTEEN... I can't leave Jack off.  He's the sweet one down at the bottom of the page.  I just want to thank all of you who have quietly been adding to his grant account too.  His account has slowly been rising over the last week which makes tears leak out of my eyes.  Thank you.

  1. I just donated to Arina P. and Yegor :)

  2. Julia, I just wanted to tell you how much your posts have moved me. You have a way of writing that touches the soul and I can feel your passion for these little ones. Just a few monthe ago I found out about Reeces Rainbow from a homeschool magazine and began looking at the site. I was too late to be an Official warrior but I chose to come along side two of these chidren, Zoey and Benji26h both from the same orphanage. God has given me His heart for these children and although I am into healthy living I have to admit that I am sending candy bars to school with my son that he is selling for 1.00 to help raise funds for these kids, it's about 10.00 a week we make for profit. Anyway your posts for Heath are especially touching and I am praying for all the children to find homes. I check almost daily to see whos been picked and am usually moved to tears as I look at there little faces, especially when one gets chosen that is not nice to look at. I am convinced there is a family suited for each one of these children. I would so love to adopt some of these children, there are a few big things that stand in the way, but I know that God is able to move those mountains, please pray for my husband and our family to be able to do that if God desires. Thank you for helping the least of these and may the Lord bless you and be glorified through you. I don't know how these blogs work if you have access to my personal e-mail when you recieve this but if not my e-mail is Diana Tyree
