Forever Family Friday

I'm going back, today. I'm going back for Darren. Darren is the second child I ever blogged about in a Forever Family Friday post. You can read that post here :) I hope you will, because it has an earlier photo of Darren. I fell in love with that picture and didn't think it could get any better. Until I saw these...
Sometimes God just blows my mind. Look at this little bundle of JOY! I knew it! I knew this boy was really something special. His little clasped hands...

Another Mom is at Darren's orphanage, right now, meeting her son. I'm so excited for their family. From all her photos and visits it looks like this is a decent orphanage. You can read their family's story and see their visits with their son here on their blog! Christie (the Momma) posted on facebook this morning and said, "Darren is the last child with Down Syndrome waiting in this orphanage." What? How amazing is God? He's sent families for those babies. I can't think of a better way to declare God's glory to this staff than to completely clear the building of every child with Down Syndrome! You know what that means? It means, Darren needs a family!

If you weren't already completely won over by this sweet boy's smile, I have one more photo for you.
Look at all that cuteness! He's the last one waiting. I know that any day now his Mommy and Daddy are going to see his outstretched arms and run to get to him. Maybe you're that Mommy and Daddy. If you'd like more information on Darren, you can check out his Reece's Rainbow profile.

Will you pray for Darren and the family whose heart God is preparing to say, "Yes!" It's a huge step of faith to realize you have a child on the other side of the ocean. It requires complete and total trust in God to make this decision. Pray, pray, pray that hearts would be open to the voice of God and to following where he leads. Darren is waiting...

You can also go to Darren's profile and make a donation to his grant. It makes a difference. I hate to think Darren would be passed over because another child has a larger grant. Or that the financial mountain would be too intimidating for his family to even consider climbing. Darren is waiting...

Share Darren's picture and story with your friends and family. You can post a link back here or one to his Reece's Rainbow profile. Let's find Darren's family by shouting from the rooftops about how he needs a family. His family may not even know he exists, yet. Darren is waiting...

I'm so thankful that God is writing Darren's story. I can't wait to see how it turns out. He is faithful! Thank you for letting me share my heart and sweet little Darren with you.

Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support...Do Something!

Hidden in Christ,
