One More Lost Boy



A Lost Boy

At Aaron's old institute



I can tell you what he does every day.


The boys who lay in the cribs NEVER EVER EVER go out.

They lay there day after day.

No one EVER picks them up.

There are too many with too little caretakers to watch over them.

They become stiff in their beds.

Hanson is there.

He is a Lost Boy.


He will die there.

Along with the other 40 boys who are laying in their cribs.

Hour after hour.

Day after lonely day.


There is hope for him if someone would be willing to cross the ocean and get him.

He has not been there long.

There is hope.

I've heard that some people don't like to call adoption rescue.

I don't know what else to call it.

For Hanson - It is rescue.  Pure and simple.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’


  1. This is so sad. I saw a video of the lost boys institution once. I'm not sure were I saw it. Do you know which orphanages transfer them to the lost boys? I'd like to advocate for more of these children before they are sent there. I'm praying for Hanson and Heath and praying that "the lost boys" institution, and others like it, will cease to exist!

  3. So much heartbreak already this week... There just are no words to express it...

  4. Why can't we acknowledge that these children need rescue? They need someone to pay the RANSOM for them, just as we needed Jesus to pay the RANSOM and rescue us.
    Julia, thank you so much for being the voice for these silent children. I know that it is overwhelming, and exhausting, and never ending. In and of ourselves we cannot change a thing, but praise GOD, we can do all things through Him who gives us strength.
    Praying for your strength today as you carry this blessed burden- seeking ransom and rescue for these lost lambs who are not lost to Jesus.
    Love to you my friend,


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
