Today we honor those that sacrificed all for our freedoms. Fighting for the rights that we so often take for granted.
The pursuit of happiness.
We honor heroes that have fallen to protect all that they believe in and hold dear.
I am deeply grateful today as I should be every day.
I am not having a BBQ today.
I am not out camping.
I am here, about to ask all of you to do something heroic on this Memorial Day. Begging with faith, really because I know many of you ARE heroes already.
See, there is a little boy, a world away that cannot fathom many of the freedoms that we take for granted every day. A little boy that has waited 5 years for his family to come and love him. To show him just how precious he is.
And he is PRECIOUS!
|Meet Brett. Happy sigh. Isn't he lovely?|
We saw Brett often. He is in a groupa with younger children who have minor or no special needs. He gets around with a walker and some help from a nanny. We would often see a nanny working with him one on one practicing walking. I think with the medical care available in the US he could probably get around on his own very well one day. He was included in the same activities as the rest of the children. When the groupa went for a walk he would ride in a big stroller and a nanny even helped him dance during a children's show. He smiled and waved when he saw us and tried to talk with us in his language.
|Look at him go!|
And there IS A FAMILY! (Jumping for joy!) An awesome family experienced with CP and adoption. A family that is well equipped to provide for this incredible child.
A family that would love to add him to their pending adoption but the funds are not there.
Money is all that stands between Brett and Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. A FAMILY!
$6000. That is all. If we can heroically raise 6k Brett will have a future. He will have a family that will see to it that he has everything he needs and more than enough love. Donations are tax deductible and will literally save a life.
Will we let 6k stand in the way of that??
Let's not. WE CAN BE HEROES for this family and this little boy!
Here is the low down: If we can raise the additional 6k needed, the AWESOME family will commit and bring him home. They have already been submitted so travel could come as quickly as 3 weeks. I will be having some fun giveaways and auctions to raise money in the following week. Please donate! Please share this post. Let's make this happen!
