we’re soooooooo…….

Can’t you tell?

Happy.  Happy.  Happy.

And thankful.

And totally amazed.

And in AWE of God who loves the orphan so passionately.

And overwhelmed by just how many of you opened your hearts to Vanya

How can I ever thank you enough for literally flooding in to help out?  I cannot find the words.

Isn’t it just so amazing when the body of Christ comes together to meet a need, or in this case–make a dream come true?

I have heard that many families have expressed a desire to bring Vanya home.  That is all being handled by the Eli Project.  I’ll let you know as soon as I have word on who the Lord has called to be his parents. What a sweet blessing this little guy is going to be to his family.  I would absolutely love to be a fly on the wall on the day that Vanya meets them for the first time.  Can you imagine the joy?  Goodness.

My heart is just overflowing with gratitude.  Thank you, friends.  Thank you for playing a part in Vanya’s unfolding miracle. From every awesome prize donated to every dollar given…thank you!

Because of you…the sweetest little boy has been given something he has never had before…HOPE!

Praise God.

Also, since many have written to tell me they have shared Vanya’s story on their blogs and Facebooks today, I am going to leave the Chip-In at the top of the page until Friday…just in case anyone else would still love to contribute. That Chip-In can still keep growing.  Anything above and beyond what has already been raised will be an extra blessing to Vanya’s family.  It all helps!

Several weeks ago as I was praying about raising money for Vanya, the Lord gave me this scripture for him. I thought I would share it with you.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me [Vanya];
he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the LORD was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
he rescued me because he delighted in me.
Psalm 18:16-19

How God delights in this little boy and is reaching down from heaven to take hold of him…to rescue him! 

What a beautiful picture of redemption.

All glory to God…GREAT things He has done.

****  Isn’t Hailee’s happy face just the sweetest thing?  Just one year ago…I never imagined.  Amazing.  Only God!
