rejoicing in the midst of tears

I've started and stopped this post five times now. My heart is rejoicing and grieving at the same time.

This is one of the most beautiful 12 seconds of video I have ever seen, and I've watched it about a hundred times now. This is Peter with his new daddy...

video


Due to circumstances beyond their control, Ty is no longer available for adoption. If you donated to the Kehm's FSP, their funds will remain with them for the completion of Peter's adoption. The length of their stay in his country is uncertain right now, as they have a court date and a ten day wait ahead of them. Any remaining funds will be given to a new addition to our Pure Love Giveaway...


Brent is six years old.

This beautiful little boy has already been transferred to the institution.


I am typing this through anguish of heart- but if something good can come out of this, by the grace of GOD, I am determined to not let the enemy win here.




I am imploring readers to rally for Brent- I am imploring you to give and pray and spread the word that Brent needs a family.  


He needs to be rescued from that Institution.


We have 3 days left of our Pure Love Giveaway...I'm extending the giveaway 2 more days to give additional time to raise funds for Brent.  The giveaway ends on December 14th, and we will announce winners on the 15th.

If you donate to Brent you may leave an additional comment saying you did so for an extra chance to win.

If you blog again about the giveaway or re-post on facebook about it, you can leave additional comments for each to be entered to win.


I'm asking you to please pray for the Kehm's as they complete this adoption of Peter.




It is nothing short of a miracle that Peter will be going home with the Kehm's...but he isn't home yet. Please pray for everything to go smoothly and without any interference. I'm not asking that lightly- 

I'm asking you to pray this boy home and don't stop praying until he gets home. 


Please don't forget to spread the word that Robyn and Brent need families..




Go here to enter our Pure Love Giveaway 2.




And I want to thank every person who bombarded Heaven yesterday. We will never stop praying for you, Ty.

Patti, I've been told by Julie to donate to the next child. I've donated $300 to Brent. Praying he finds his momma and papa.

love you, sweetie.

Praying for the Kehm's as they are dealing with what I'm sure is extreme mixed emotions....joy over meeting Peter and the uncertainty that still awaits until everything is finalized...and grief and hearbreak over the loss of Ty.

Thank you for advocating so hard for these sweet babies - what a gift you are to them!

my family said...

oh my heart is breaking for this family. Im sure you cant get into details but I pray this is isolated and not something that will happen often to families who are adopting. Praying hard for this precious family ....going to watch that sweet video again (for the tenth+ time, how can you get tired of that?)

PRAYING Patti!!! SO exciting to actually see Peter being rescued!! SO sad to hear about Ty. I will keep praying for him. And I will keep praying as they bring Peter home. I am just now seeing all of this. Love to you.

Praying....

After I found out the prayer request was for one family in particular, I knew it had to be the Kehm's. Sending continued prayers their way- I can't imagine how difficult this must be.

Along with ELden, Ty has been the other little sweetie I've watched over the last year and donated to find a family. I hope this is isolated to this family getting Ty and that Ty is not somehow unable to be adopted and destined to spend his life institutionalized.

Thank you Patti. Our hearts are utterly shattered and filled with joy right now. I have never felt so emotionally twisted. We wrestle with the sorrow of losing our beloved Ty and sheer joy of still having Peter.
We are in a land so far away, with no one but each other. I miss my other babies terribly. If I did not have all of you to help me through this I would be so lost.

katekopp said...

Oh, we are praying for all here - especially Ty - hoping he can be adopted by a loving family soon!!!

Angel said...

Praying for this family and 2 little boys. Just can't imagine how this could happen. So sad for Ty, so happy for Peter. Praying that something can still be done to rescue Ty. Thank you for sharing their story!

stephanie said...

This was heart wrenching news. Praying that Ty will one day be with his family. God has GOT to have a plan.
Thanks for taking care of these little ones....praying

Oops. I just read your post from last Thursday and saw that your son got married this weekend. So, you're excused for not posting Lily pictures. :) I hope you have had a chance to get some rest.

I'm visiting from Julia's blog. I was told to report the Passed Over Babies. I gave $5 to all of them. I wish it could have been more. I believe God can and will preform another loves and bread. He has a plan for every one of these children. I will continue to pray that his will be done.
