I call them our boys because they are our son's closest friends...his orphanage "brothers". His orphanage brothers that desperately NEED their forever family. His brothers that were in just about every picture of Solomon we received while we were waiting. His brothers that he desperately misses!! His brothers that followed us around calling me 'mama' and reaching to be held. His brothers that kept saying over and over how they wanted a mama, too!!
SECOND UPDATE: KADEN HAS A FAMILY!!! I can't even believe I'm typing this...Kaden has his forever family! And you want to know what's even more beautiful??? They are friends of ours...friends that live here...friends that are part of our homeschool group....our boys will be together!!! I won't share who they are until they officially announce it BUT there simply are no words...we are so excited! When we first began advocating for Kaden back in March, I felt so strongly he'd be adopted by a family we knew & that the boys would grow up with each other. I often wondered, "Was this a promise from the Lord or am I just really wanting it to be a promise from the Lord." Guess what...it WAS a word spoken from the Lord...I still am in complete awe!!
Please continue to pray for God's perfect plans for sweet Dalton. He is the last of "our" boys who still NEED a family! He CAN'T be left behind!!
His beautiful brothers that are MIRACULOUSLY on the shared sn's list...who's orphanage director specifically asked us to help find them a family. I am in awe that out of the 100's of peanuts in the orphanage, our boys are on the shared list. There are ONLY a handful of kiddos on the list from this orphanage and the Lord allowed them to be our boys...at this time...right now...PLEASE help us find their families!!
"Brother #1" and clearly Solomon's BESTEST friend ever!!
UPDATE: MY FOREVER FAMILY HAS FOUND ME!!!!!!
*Kaden born Early 2006This little guy saw Solomon coming during our orphanage visit and could not get to him quick enough. Solomon had only been gone 4 days but it was like he had been gone for an eternity. He was all giggles & was grabbing at Solomon. It was precious!!
Just the other day I was looking at pictures of Kaden when our little Solomon came in the room and saw me looking at pictures of his buddy and he got so excited. He was pointing to Kaden's pictures and pointing to himself...back and forth...he wanted me to take him to see Kaden's. He was smiling so big and then he began to tear up :( He misses him so much and knowing that he is still in the orphanage kills me!
I Still NEED my family...is it you?
*Dalton born Early 2007This little one followed me all over calling me mama and saying he wanted a mama, too. Funny thing is that his report says that his is shy and doesn't like strangers yet he knew a mama when he saw one!!!
UPDATE: I HAVE MY FOREVER FAMILY!!!!!!!!
*Parker born mid 2007This precious one was very much the observer...trying to figure everything out. Talk about the
sweetest, most gentle personality!!
I will NEVER, EVER forget our boys watching us leave with their brother for the last time. Leaving them behind was the hardest thing I have ever done!
Please be praying...could YOU be the family that they were begging me for??? The family they so desperately need! Please spread the word! I'm not sure how long they will be on the list..their time is short, that I do know!
