Thank you from Baby Anna & BF finds a home !!

Thank you , to everyone who prayed for, and gave  our baby Anna a birthday gift :) Her grant has grown by $200 ! That is 200 steps closer to bringing her home :)

AND IN BIG NEWS-

 Remember this sweetie? This is Benji's best friend since they were little babies. Truly they were more like brothers. In the insecure world of an orphanage these 2 little boys formed a bond and cared for each other. They were constantly hugging or holding hands. It was so sweet and broke our hearts at the same time. We vowed to find  a way to have "sasha" listed on Reeces Rainbow and work so very hard to find him a family of his own. At the time we couldnt bring him home since we werent approved for 3 children :(
Well just a few weeks ago after many emails to Andrea ;) finally Sasha was on Reeces Rainbow ! I worked hard to advocate for him and asked friends to cross post, AND IT WORKED ! His family has found him just in time !! This tiny boy is 6 and was destined to the institution very very soon :(
We couldnt be his family at this time, since we are commited to Baby Anna and they are in two different cities far apart. Yes we would have gone back for him if he didnt find a family, but we couldnt bear to see this sweet little boy step one foot into a dark scary institution. He may not have survived it .
He will be a big brother to a beautiful little boy. His soon to be family is in the military so he will have a very exciting life :):)


Sasha we love you and are so happy for you !! We are praying we will be able to get the boys together so they can continue the bond they have .

hugs !!!!
