Prayers for John

 I'm a bit of a wreck this morning.
This little guy is going in for surgery tomorrow morning. 
He's getting his tethered cord de-tethered. There are risks.  I'm trying not to think about them.
I'm sitting here alternating between praying and worrying. 
He will be in the hospital for around 4 days. Aaron is going to be LONELY without his best buddy beside him!
They are pretty inseparable.
And doing an exceptionally great job at keeping Rob and me YOUNG!!

Young and crazy!!

Aaron is going to miss his best buddy these next few days!!
Wherever you find the one... you are almost certainly going to find the other!

We would MOST DEFINITELY appreciate prayers for our sweet John tomorrow and in the coming weeks. 

I will be posting on here and on Facebook updates about his surgery and recovery so stay tuned.
While I am hanging out at the hospital I will still be hoping and praying for the boxes of love. 
To all you who have given .... THANK YOU!! 
I won't be able to do much more than watch and pray.  Please don't forget these boys.  We still have such a long ways to go to get their matching grants met. 
My heart is grieved because Isolde aged out. I just can't bear the thought of her spending her days without a family.  Micah has only a few weeks left.  Alex just a month. Who will hear the call??
MICAH - AGING OUT IN NOVEMBER - He met his match!
 ALEX - AGING OUT IN DECEMBER  - He met his match! 
We still need 212 more people willing to give $10.00 to remove a box of love.  
When we have revealed all four pictures, I am going to give away four professionally done prints from four of the portraits.  Winners will get to choose which portrait they want printed. 
I just need 212 people willing to donate $10.00 to remove a box of love.
I am more than willing to take people willing to donate MORE than $10.00 to remove even more boxes. 
I'm not picky.
We have $2,111.00 left to raise.
Please give whatever you can and leave me a comment or send me an e-mail ( to let me know you gave.  Those who have given already are already in the drawing for the prints.
STEPHAN - HE NEEDS A FAMILY! - He met his match!
AARON - 1,000.00 matching grant. Grant account needs to read 1045.00 - Still needs 743.50
BEN - 1,000.00 matching grant.  Grant account needs to read 4,363.36 - Still needs 622.00
ISAIAHU - 1,000.00 matching grant. Grant account needs to read 1018.00 - Still needs 745.50




  1. Hospital stays stink! I hope John heals quickly! I will keep you in my prayers.
    Also, what does a family have to have as far as approval goes to move fast on an aging out kid? For instance, we have a current home study but no USCIS approvals...

  2. Praying for sweet John, Aaron and you too! I love you.


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
