Little Mr. Blue Eyes...

Now that Valentin's waiting days are coming to an end--and his family's adventure with him is beginning--

I'd like to introduce you to Sawyer.

Doesn't he have the most beautiful eyes?

(The description calls them gray, but they look blue to me...)

Sawyer just turned four this summer. He is waiting for his family to come...

Those big wistful eyes caught at my heart when I first saw him on Reece's Rainbow. Will you pray that his mama and papa will come for him soon?

Valentin's Family!

I have been waiting eagerly to know who was going to be Valentin's family. A couple of days ago, I checked the New Commitments page (again) and there he was! With a little description of his new family. You might have to scroll down to find him--so here's a direct link to his family's page.

These lovely folks will be welcoming Valentin home to a large family. They are not strangers to international adoption, having brought home three other children not long ago! You can learn more about them on the family page and on their blog.

Valentin will have brothers--and sisters! He'll have a mom and dad to listen as he tells about the new things he's learning. He'll know that he is valued and important. He'll get to go on family trips and visit the zoo and go swimming. He'll get the therapy and medical care he needs.

I feel so joyful and awed to have been able to see all this unfold. And it will be great to follow along with this new adventure, as Valentin's parents bring him home...

Congratulations, little man! So happy for you!

Yesterday I went to look at the "My Family Found Me" page on Reece's Rainbow.

Guess who was at the top of the page?

There's a family coming for Valentin.

I just keep smiling. Can't wait to see who it is and cheer them on!

It's August...

The 5/5/5 campaign is finished...but in Eastern Europe, Valentin is still waiting.

And I'm still here, too. Still waiting and hoping with Valentin.

We won't forget him, will we?

Neither does God.
