We Interrupt

I'm interrupting this blog to tell you that...

Last night I cried.

I sat with camera in hand and watched our little fugitive from across the ocean standing on a stage and performing his little heart out.


And I cried.



He wasn't in tune.  He wasn't always singing the same words that the other children were singing.  He didn't get his cues.  He couldn't do the hand motions.  Most of the time he was only able to repeat what they had just said or sang.  My still learning English little fugitive in his red shirt that Mama bought for him just so he could go on that stage was performing in his first Christmas chorus and drama production.  

The Joy.  


The utter Joy and Pride on his face.



My son was SO HAPPY to be on that stage.



And I could barely contain my laughter and my tears.  



My heart was full as I sat there watching My Son.



My Son.

There are just no words.

$5905.00 has been donated for our Passed Over Babes.

Arina has now jumped the $600.00 wall.  Yegor, Paul and Nikita are still chugging along.  Spencer and Meredith are within $100.00 of jumping the $1,000.00 wall.... Whose going to jump today??

Please keep spreading the word.  I KNOW that some of these children are now being considered for adoption.  God is at work.  He is moving in hearts.  I've been getting e-mails asking for prayers as families are CONSIDERING... PRAYING.. Asking the Lord to grant them wisdom and courage.    Our Passed Over Babes are being noticed.

PLEASE KEEP SHARING. 

Please don't be weary in your gifts.  It is those gifts that are allowing some of the families to consider whether or not one of these babes is their son or daughter.  

We have three more days in our Passed Over Babes Giveaway.  Three more days to holler and yell for 13...14 children who NEED us to be their voice.

So that next year - they can be standing on a stage at Christmas singing songs and reciting poetry about JESUS while their Mamas and Papas laugh and cry below.

These babes need to be sitting under a tree next year.... not hanging on it.

  8. Aaron is so handsome on stage. It is our two boys first Christmas and it is pure joy to see their excitement. Their siblings have been telling them all kinds of exciting things about Christmas so they know good things are coming.

    Better late than never, I donated to Spencer and Paul.

    Wishing you and your whole family a wonderful Christmas!
