New Giveaway Items

I stole this picture.
 
 
It made me cry when I saw it yesterday on Carla's blog.
 
It would have been Henry's birthday yesterday.
 
Do you see the song he is singing to his Mama in this picture?
 
A song of love and joy. 
 
I wish I could share with you the pictures that Carla shared with me of two of her New Songs.
 
Oh my gracious if you were to see those pictures you would be emptying your pockets. 
 
Carla and Paul leave in a matter of weeks.
 
They now have travel dates.
 
They are packing their bags.
 
Plane tickets are being purchased.
 
Final arrangements are being made.
 
They are crossing the ocean to bring home three children.
 
THREE. 
 
Two sisters and a brother.
 
 
The older sister "Susan" begged for someone to adopt her and her little brother and sister.  She is not in the same place as they are and her heart is grieved.  She has lost everything in the world that matters to her but in just a few weeks.... Her world is going to be turned upside down when she discovers that she not only has a Mama and Papa who WANT HER but they are going to rescue her little brother and her little sister too!
 
Oh don't you want to be there??
 
Don't you want to be there when she realizes that the cries of her heart have been heard by the Conductor of this Symphony?
 
Don't you want to watch her when she is finally finally re-united with her little sister and her little brother?
 
I do.
 
I want to be a little bug on the wall and watch brother and sisters united at last!
 
I want to hear the song those three children will be singing!
 
I would be crying a river.
 
I would be crying a river.
 
The Dobrovits are $117.00 from matching their grant and about $3,117.00 from being fully funded.
 
Carla told me yesterday that they figure they will have to take out a home equity loan to cover what they can't raise.
 
Not if I can help it!
 
I have NO problem with people taking out loans to adopt.  IF that is what it takes to ransom a child than that is what it takes and I have many friends who have taken out loans to bring their children home.  Taking out a loan doesn't mean God didn't provide.  It is another means by which He provided!
 
But it is NOT ideal - especially when you are adopting multiple children and two of them have special needs.
 
Especially when Paul and Carla just buried a child less than a year ago.
 
They are so close to being funded.
 
Please let's rally around them....
 
Let's get their grant matched and let's fill up their bucket and get them funded!!
 
AS FURTHER INCENTIVE TO GIVE...
