A Friday Story!

This week I was scrolling through Facebook in a few minutes of free time.  Trust me.  We are in the middle of tech week for Seussical and with teaching and dealing with BiblioPlan business stuff and cooking and cleaning and being a mom.... having those few free minutes to leisurely scroll through Facebook was RARE!!
So I was scrolling through and stumbled upon a mom who was asking for help to get a matching grant met.  Below her request was a link to a blogpost and to the sweetest story I have heard in a long time. 
It was about these two children.

A little girl and a little boy. 
Not brother and sister biologically but brother and sister in heart.
I sat stunned as I read the story.
There were tons of pictures in the blogpost and in each one were these two babes.  A little girl and a little boy who were as close as brother and sister could ever be.
Do you notice what I notice in the picture?  Do you see what I see?  Anyone who knows my Aaron would recognize that the little boy most likely has arthrogryposis.
Two little children who grew up together until one day a family came and adopted the little girl.
She left her brother behind.  But she did not forget him.  She carried his picture around.  She slept with it at night.  She asked over and over and over when he was coming home too.
They had to go back.
How in the world could they leave him behind? They didn't have the funds.  They didn't. It didn't matter. A little girl wanted her brother to come home.  They had room at their table.  They believe in a BIG GOD who cares for the brothers left behind.
They are IN COUNTRY now but still short of funds.  This is their 6th adoption. 
Their grant account needs to read $7,000 to be fully funded making them about $2,000 short.  Will you help?? He will be home in less than a week. The need is big. God is bigger!!
