Teamwork Tuesday: Darryl

Oh my. If this boy's smile doesn't melt your heart I don't know what will!

Darryl was born in June of 2007, which means his 5th birthday is right around the corner. My daughter will be 5 in September. I asked her what she would like and she has a list a mile long which includes a bike, beanbag, and a fake computer.

I wonder, if we were to ask Darryl what he wants for his birthday, what would he say?

Perhaps some Hot Wheels? A race track?

A basketball hoop? Or a trip to the beach with his new family?

This little boy DESERVES all those things and so much more.

Are YOU able to give him the best Birthday present any boy could ask for?

I have been waiting since November to say this...


Finally,  he has been chosen. He will have a mom and a dad. I am so happy!

Oh sweet Keaton, what a life you could have! If only your family knew you were laying there waiting...and waiting...and waiting. Waiting for almost 6 long years. Probably most spent laying there on that pink blanket.

Why are you laying there still? Those big, long, scary words in your file were a life sentence. CP, internal congenital hydrochephalus, ventriculoperitoneostomia. 

BUT, Keaton, those big, long, scary words do not define you! 

Instead of those words I see a little boy at home with his family. Splashing in the bathtub with his little brother. Driving matchbox cars down the arm of the sofa. Snatching the last bite of his sister's cookie off her plate when she isn't looking, and then giggling with delight, little tongue poking out, when she can't figure out where it went. Off to his first day off preschool. Walking. Laughing. Loved.

One day, Keaton, your mama will arrive and scoop you off of that pink blanket and never, ever, let you go!

Teamwork Tuesday: Kyle 2H

Kyle was born in November, 2006. He has beautiful blue eyes that are pleading for his family to come get  him. He has bright  blonde hair that would look so cute spiked up in a little mohawk :) He needs a family and fast. He will soon to be transferred to an institution where he will have no chance to do all the things 5 year olds should be doing. He should be playing in a sandbox, riding on his daddy's shoulders, eating a popsicle in his backyard. Can you close your eyes for a second and just imagine this sweet little guy a part of your family? Is he meant to be your son?

Kyle has a $3,900 grant available through Reece's Rainbow (http://reecesrainbow.org/?s=kyle). Please spread the word so his family can find him!
