Our Angel Tree Baby 2013!

Meet Breck!
 
 
He is our new Angel Tree baby for the 2013 Christmas Season!
Don't mind the pink! Breck is a boy, and tough guys wear pink!
 
Breck's Info (via Reece's Rainbow):
Boy, born August 2010
 Down syndrome
He can roll, sit, crawl, now can stand up, walk. Every time when seeing the aunts, his eyes will follow her ceaselessly. When the aunt walks pass by him, he will reach his arms to hug them. Breck likes all kinds of food and eats well.
He acts like a big brother when playing with other children, he will protect them. When there are no children to play with he will sit quietly there and plays with the toys near him.
Breck is a very sensible and active little boy, which makes all the aunts like him very much.
 
 
We are very excited to get to raise money for Breck this Christmas season. For those of you who haven't been around for our Angel Tree fundraisers in the past, here is some info to fill you in!
 
Reece's Rainbow: The mission of Reece’s Rainbow is to advocate and find families for orphans with Down syndrome and other special needs by raising funds for adoption grants and promoting awareness through an online community, media communications, and other events.
 
Christmas Angel Tree Project: When you donate $35 or more, you will receive a beautiful photo ornament of your sponsored child to hang on your tree. Our theme for 2013 is “CHOSEN”, because each one of the Reece’s Rainbow children who have been adopted was CHOSEN! As Breck's Angel Tree Warrior we have committed to raising $1,000 towards his adoption fund.
 
Angel Tree begins November 1st!

A new picture!

Angel Tree has begun! Yay! We are already 4 days in, and Dillon has reached $100!! Can't wait to see how this Angel Tree season pans out. I was completely in awe of the Lord last year, and I'm positive this year will be no different. If you would like to donate to Dillon's adoption fund just go to http://static.reecesrainbow.org/angeltree2012/ scroll down until you see Dillon, and click donate. You can also purchase an ornament for $35 with his picture on it! To purchase an ornament click the option under donate then scroll back up to click on your "gift basket".

I'm so glad it is finally the holiday season! Happy Holidays to all! I leave you with a new picture of Dillon, and a picture of one of the many trees in our home. I know it's only Nov. 4th, but don't hate on the fact that I love Christmas a little more than the average person. :) Enjoy.

Isn't he adorable?!?!

Our new Angel Tree baby!

Meet our 2012 Angel Tree baby Dillon! Isn't he the cutest? I just want to pinch his precious cheeks. I am so excited to start fundraising for little Dillon that I already made two wreaths to sell this weekend! The Angel Tree doesn't officially start until November 1st, but I am hoping that we can get some funds raised for Dillon beforehand as well.

Unfortunately, Niles was not eligible for the Angel Tree this year. Niles is still waiting to be adopted, and I pray that his family will find him soon. Thank you to all who helped us reach our Angel Tree goal for Niles last year.

A book I'll actually finish.

If you know me...you know that I am always in the middle of a thousand and one books that I will NEVER finish! Well, I'll be finishing this book!
The Boy From Baby House 10 is a true story about an orphan in Russia who was given the title of an "incurable" and was banished into an institution after he grew out of the Baby House. If you know anything about Cerebral Palsy then you will know that most individuals with CP do not have a cognitive disability...as was the case for this little boy. The more I read this book the more my heart breaks for all orphans...those with cognitive and/or physical disabilities and those without. I wish I had unlimited amounts of money to anonymously give full adoption funds to thousands of orphans so their families could come save them! One day it will be mine and Jamie's turn, and I absolutely cannot wait. Until then I will continue to pray, advocate, and raise funds until these babies find a home!

Here is a clip from the Dateline story on the little boy Vanya.

GOAL!!!



I am in awe of the Lord! Never did I think that Jamie and I could reach the $1,000 goal for our Angel Tree baby. I thought that at best we could raise $500 by Christmas. Well, how wrong I was! It is only Thanksgiving, and the goal has been met and surpassed! It has only been 3 weeks and a couple days since the Angel Tree started! All the glory to God as this was not our doing, but His alone. God directed us to fundraise, we listened, and He did His work! To think that we almost didn't sign up to be a Christmas Warrior for a child because I was too afraid that I couldn't raise a dime, and now this little boy has over $1,000 towards his adoption with more on the way. Thank you to each and every one of you who have bought a wreath, or have donated! "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name." Psalm 100:4 I am thankful today and everyday to have such a wonderful heavenly Father!
