Tears of Thankfulness

My eyes are glistening, right now these are the faces I am thinking about whose families are there right now but my heart is breaking & so will yours when you see this:
This is Gabe, his family is in his country right now adopting him. He is 6 yrs old & has spent his entire days laying down in a crib. This picture does not show but he is the size of a 3 yr old. My heart just breaks for him.

I keep wondering, will Celine or Cora Lynne be like Gabe? Never knowing what love & a family truely is.
See this pretty girl & her Mommy? Thats Vika, my heart breaks as they keep saying she is sleepy which might mean that the orphanage drugs them.

I also have been following this families journey, my heart just smiles & fills with Joy everytime I see her face!

Please pray for these families!
Today I am thankful for my life, thankful that their are awesome families rescuing these kids, thankful that yesterday the yard sale brought in around $366 for the Millers & Mickschls, Thankful that strangers donated money in the donation jar/told us to keep the change for the orphans, thankful we raised around $33 selling baked goodies & donations for Celine & Cora Lynne at the sale, thankful for my friends & friends of the mickschl family that donated items to sell, thankful i had a Mom who helped out alot making signs to advertise & helped at the sale, thankful that next saturday it looks like a sunny day for the yard sale, thankful that their are more friends that have more items to sell, & Most of all thankful to God for all his blessings! Lets find these girls families! Celine is my 5/5/5 warrior & I would love to see her reach the goal of $5,000!
