Be a Drop in Their Bucket...

All I have to offer is just a drop in the bucket.
 
 
My little drop isn't going to amount to much.
 
Just a tiny little drop in a great big bucket.
 
But with my tiny little drop...
 
and your tiny little drop...
 
 
 
and someone else's tiny little drop...
 
well....
 
 
 
 
THE DEUTSCH FAMILY IS LEAVING IN A WEEK
 
Did you read that?
 
Next week they are boarding a plane and in less than two weeks.... these two children are going to have their worlds rocked!
 
10825232256 10825233124
 
Oh please, PLEASE pray for them. 
 
The harsh part of this process is that they are going to be given a few minutes time with this family who will have crossed the ocean to adopt them.  And in that few minutes time they will both have to make a decision that will impact them for the rest of their lives.
 
Because of their special needs - they have NO FUTURE in their country. 
 
Yet they could turn down in a heartbeat the chance for hope and a future.
 
The Deutsch family understands the risk.
 
They know going in that one or both could turn them down.
 
But they are sacrificing everything to give them the opportunity to say yes.
 
They have a $2,500.00 matching grant.
 
They are desperate to have it met BEFORE they leave NEXT WEEK.
 
$1,232.00 stands in the way.
 
They don't have the luxury of time.
 
Please help me match this grant. 
 
BE A DROP IN THEIR BUCKET!!!
