Porter Update



For the last two weekends (and this next weekend too) Ben and Elijah have been participating in drama which means that Aaron has been hanging out with all the kids backstage.


All of these sweet kids are either part of every show or are dragged along just like Aaron because their older siblings or parents are in the show.  We have literally watched these kids grow up.


To say Aaron LOVES hanging out with everyone would be an understatement!!



HE LOVES IT!

He especially loves the trading of the games part... He's playing with Raven's game and Raven is playing his!! LOL!



And just so you don't think he is being deprived... he has decided he is going to be in the next show... Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

Me thinks he will make a cute little Ompa Lompa Boy 


---------------------------------

Porter update....

As many of you have heard if you follow the Eriksen's blog... They learned this past week that the little boy in the gray shirt that we believed was Porter...

He is NOT Porter!


The Eriksens discovered this past week that the little boy in gray is ANOTHER child and at this point no one knows for sure whether he is available for adoption.  Porter (in the pink) IS IN AARON'S INSTITUTE.  That did NOT change.  All the money we have raised is for PORTER and the Eriksens are ADOPTING PORTER.  That has NOT changed. 

The hard part for the Eriksens is that they now have little knowledge of Porter and their leap of faith is looking quite a bit scarier.  Having pictures and descriptions of a child is MUCH EASIER than just one little picture and a brief description.  They committed to Porter believing he was the little boy in gray.  It is NO ONES FAULT THAT THIS HAPPENED!!  See for yourselves... the boys could be twins!!  I am as guilty as the next person for believing that he was Porter.  I yelled for the little boy in pink and the little boy in gray believing they were the same boy.  

The Eriksons are committed to Porter and are GOING TO GET HIM so please please please .... please encourage them in the next few days.  Our Giveaway is ONLY for them at this point since Heath is fully funded.  They are one paper short of submitting their dossier which means they are less than two months from travel and are still in need of 12,000.00.  PLEASE HELP.  The last week has been ROUGH for them.  They need us to stand with them in this EXTREME leap of faith.  Two weeks ago God tapped on my heart to pray for Porter and I am seeing more clearly why that was so important. 

 PLEASE PRAY.  PLEASE GIVE!!
