Look at this little guy! He has stolen our hearts :)
There are "good" orphanages and there are bad ones. Even a good orphanage is not a family. It never can be.
This little guy has a spark. I wish I could post these pictures larger for you to see...try clicking on the photos and I think it will show an larger version of the photo. He just has this amazing light in his eyes. In his two years of life in an orphanage, he still has a spark of joy in him. We desperately want to bring him home before the years in an orphanage start to dampen that spark of his. And trust me, folks...if left in an orphanage to eventually age out into a mental institution he will most certainly lose that beautiful spark.
Please, if you'd like to help bring our boy home, there are several things you can do. We have puzzle pieces for sale and we have T-Shirts for sale. Maybe your family can't adopt right now but you'd like to help a family that is. Maybe you'd like to collect loose change as a family and donate it to bringing Joseph home? Maybe your planning to have a yard sale anyway and would like to donate the proceeds from the sale to bringing him a family? We've had people mention selling things on E Bay for us...whatever God might be calling you to.
It is hard to ask for help, but I also know that this little boy is waiting for us. Each and every day he waits. And God calls His body to work together to accomplish His will. So I will put my pride aside and ask for help so that this little boy can come home while he still holds such an incredible light in him.
We also want to say thank you to those that have already so thoughtfully helped us with funds to bring Joseph home. Little by little, it will all add up! Thank you so much!
