Another Year on the Angel Tree

For the second year in a row, our family will be prayer and fundraising warriors for Isaiah.  As I wrote in THIS POST about a year ago, Isaiah is a young boy with Down syndrome living in an orphanage in Eastern Europe.  He is not with his birthfamily simply because he has one extra chromosome.  

My hope and prayer is that this year will be the LAST year for Isaiah to be on the Angel Tree.  My family and I pray DAILY for him to know God and to know the peace and love of a family.  (And due to regulations in Russia based on my health history, we are not able to adopt him ourselves.)

Our goal is to raise $1000 in the next 60 days.  He already has a grant of $1418.  The total cost to adopt a child in Eastern Europe is over $25,000.  I know that there are MANY people who might want to bring him home, but the issue of money is a huge stumbling block.  Together, we can help lessen that burden and show our love and support to this sweet boy and his future family!

In the sidebar, you will see a donation box.  This is a link directly to Reece's Rainbow.  All donations are tax deductible! 

I do not see the list of donors.  However, if you are comfortable and as a favor to me,  please leave a comment or send me an e-mail if you have donated, so that I may thank you personally.  May God bless you richly for your prayers and support for this little boy!

  1. (I found your blog on WTM. :) ) This is our first year donating to the RR Angel Tree. My boys are excited to use the money they put aside for charity to each "adopt" a child listed.
