Yesterday I was so very happy to announce the wonderful news that
PETER HAS A FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to share the details about who this wonderful family is- and given Peter's medical condition and needs, you are going to be amazed at who has stepped forward to claim him.
I received an email from Andrea this morning that said Peter is alive, but not doing well...and that this family is literally saving his life. And "not doing well" does not mean the same thing in Eastern Europe as it does here. In other words-
This family needs to be on a fast track to get him home.
From Reece's Rainbow's site...
Peter is a darling little boy with brown hair and brown eyes. He has so much to bring to a family, but he was born with multiple challenges in addition to his Down syndrome. From his medical records: severe delay of stato-motor development, congenital heart disease(ventricular septal defect with high degree of pulmonary hypertension), condition after closing of patent ductus arteriosus and coning of pulmonary artery, retinal angiopathy, farsightedness, nystagmus.
Peter needs a family right away, so his medical complications can be addressed by US physicians, and he can finally begin to live life as he should!
He cannot wait for a year while they fundraise- they need a full grant now.
I also exchanged emails with Peter's new mama, and as soon as they are placed on the Family Sponsorship page on Reece's Rainbow, we will announce who they are and give you a link to their blog.
She also expressed her sincere appreciation to every person who has given so liberally to save Peter..and also expressed the very real need they have for his grant to continue to grow.
I am imploring you to keep posting about this wherever you can- update your blogs, update your Facebook status, update posts on any forums you can- get the word out there that Peter has a family and they need our help.
If every person who reads this post gives just ten dollars, in the remaining three days of this giveaway, we will have a full grant for Peter.
SO here's the deal- if you donate another ten dollars(which you do by clicking on the donate button for Peter on my sidebar))- you can leave an additional comment/entry.
And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, go read about my PURE LOVE GIVEAWAY.
And can I just say that you folks ROCK???!!!
Seriously, I am amazed. Totally, completely, utterly, flipping AMAZED!!
GOD IS SO GOOD!
