Today’s blog post was excerpted with permission from my friend Julia’s blog.
Please read it all the way down to the bottom.
Then please visit the following site to see more photos and video of this quiet little boy who is turning sixteen years old on Sunday, December 1st–aging out of his last opportunity to be adopted.
The quiet boy who loves to watch the birds.
The quiet one who enjoys being rather than doing.
The boy who only comes alive when the music plays.
So easy to forget.
He ages out next week. December 1st.
He ages out.
His chance for a family ends on his birthday.
I write this with tears streaming.
We yelled for him in March. A solid month of yelling. We yelled again a few other times since then but nothing. No one has inquired about him even once.
And now the end is here. He has but a week to find a family.
He has nothing to offer but a tender spirit and a quiet presence. He isn’t going to be a rocket scientist. He isn’t going to blow anyone away with grand accomplishments. Does that disqualify him from a family? Does it mean he has to spend the rest of his life bench sitting?
Is there anyone out there willing to take a leap of faith and go get him? Paperwork has to be mailed by MONDAY or TUESDAY (overnighted) at the latest.
I’m covering you with prayers sweet boy.
Praying for the impossible.
You know what to do!
Help rally around this one precious life!
Share it everywhere you can!
PRAY PRAY PRAY!!! Nothing is impossible for God!!!

Julia sent me this photo, with the words,
“This is where he will end up, Susanna. A cage.”
