ORPHAN NO MORE

We interrupt this blog to bring you the following most beautiful picture in the universe.


GOTCHA DAY for Peter.


If you gave during the Pure Love Giveaway, you helped make this miracle come true for Peter.


On days like this morning, when I wake up and wonder...does anyone care? I wonder if people are weary of hearing about orphans and just wish we would all stop pleading and posting and asking people to see their need... I doubt everything I'm doing and feel like crawling quietly back into my corner of the blogging world and just shutting up...I get a picture like this in my inbox and it hits me- he cares.


Happy happy HAPPY day.  :)

my family said...

I know what you mean, I wonder often how much this little blog gets out and if Benji and Bogdan will get a family before it is too late. I know I never want to tell my chidren that kind of news so we pray daily someone finds them soon.

What happy pictures:) Thanks for sharing

Julia said...

IT"S WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.. To see the babes walking out the door ... free. I just wish there were two in their arms.

Becca said...

Never, ever weary of hearing about the orphans. You are so amazing, Patti.

I'm so happy for Julie and her family!!!!!

Julie said...

Thank you Patti for not hiding in a corner! Thank you for helping bring Peter out of the darkness so I could find him. I knew the moment I laid eyes on his picture he was ours and his heart whispered to mine, 'there you are...' the day I wrapped my arms around him.
He almost slipped through our fingers but my heart held on tight and here we are. At this moment he is sound asleep right between Mommy and Daddy.
Merry Christmas, Peter. Miracles do happen.

Julie said...

BUT, he really looks more like his daddy! I've got some amazing photos of them together and it's uncanny.

Cathy said...

Patti...don't you EVER doubt what you are doing. Love you for what you do!! And I love that because of God working through you and your readers, sweet Peter is asleep between his mommy and daddy right now.

Mrs. K said...

How funny! I was thinking how much Peter looks like his Daddy and others said he looks like his Mama. What a PERFECT MATCH, a match made in HEAVEN. Getting ready to go to dinner with friends and the tears, tears of jubilation are surfacing. Praise God, thank you Patti for championing for these precious angels. Don't evere give up.

Nina said...

Mom2many said...

Yay! That picture is priceless!

Robin E. said...

Wow! The picture we've waited almost a year to see! Beautiful beyond words!

Patti,
You have no idea how many people who've been led to RR, advocating, etc. through your blog. It truly is a great work for God and his special little ones. :)

Julie,
I think he looks like both of you! Thanks so much for the pics and update! He is beautiful, and now he is safe and loved!!!!!

P.S. I don't really care if some people are tired of hearing us, until there are NO more orphans, we will holler!!

cara said...

SPEECHLESS!! Oh, and I echo Cathy, "don't ever doubt what you are doing."

CameoLeigh said...

Don't you dare ever stop advocating!! We all care ;) and like a previous poster put, until all the orphans have families, we all need to scream!! What a great day for Peter and his family. Both equally blessed by each other. Keep up your hard work!!

Sarai said...

That family photo brings tears to my eyes!!
Patti- you are doing amazing things for these babies! God bless you and your awesome family

Sandryte said...

Woo-woot! Rejoice! Just look at this gem picture before - so SO sad eyes, hopeless. And look at them now!!!

Never ask yourself, Patti, shall I save the life?! You are doing while all of us here only wish to be doing! You fulfill our dreams! Thank you!
