Some Bad News...

You all remember Dennis, right? The little boy I raised the $1000 for? He had a family that was trying to adopt him, but we just got the message that he lost his family. His family is no longer going to be adopting him. Dennis is three years old. If someone doesn't step up to adopt him by March, he will be placed in a mental institution. This made me sad and angry. I couldn't believe that a family would just stop pursuing their child. Mom asked us if we would ever stop pursuing Evan. Me and Jace immediately yelled out, "NO!" Excepting some freak circumstance like our house burning to the ground, we would never rest without my sister home. Evan's in our family now, and families stick together.
Please be praying for Dennis. I told Mom that we could adopt him, but as he is in the Ukraine and Evan is in Russia, that'd be a little difficult. Pray that he'll find a family, because we CANNOT let another precious child get sent to a mental institution. Especially when we know he is in such dire need.

You can view his picture at Click on Waiting Children --> More "At Risk" Children Ages 3-5 --> Waiting Children, then scroll down to Orphanage 9. He is first on that list.

If you say, "Hey, that's none of my business,"
will that get you off the hook?
Someone is watching you closely, you know --
Someone not impressed with weak excuses.
- Proverbs 24:12 (The Message)
