I haven't been posting very regularly and life with four kids and a golden retriever puppy spat straight from the bowels of hell is keeping me away from my computer.
I think we still get blog visitors.
I assume we do.
But...just to test the waters a bit...I've decided to make one last bid for an incentive to hang around blogland.
So, here's the deal.
His name is Devine. You can read more about him here.
And this kid is keeping me up nights, people.
He's seven. Only. Seven. And hasn't been seven for even five months yet.
He's available for adoption. To any state. Because no one has ever stepped forward to say, "He's mine. I'll take him. He stays with me."
Every WORD of his adoption bio is true for BOTH Pudge and Biggs.
But, more importantly, LC and Jace were domestically adopted because, repeatedly during the years before I was married, I had seen...firsthand...what happens to children with Down syndrome who are brought up in foster care in our country.
It would break your heart and turn your stomach. I guarantee it.
This kid is oozing with potential. This kid is waiting to explode with wonder in an environment that would support the kind of consistency and emotional investment he deserves.
This kid is drop dead gorgeous, if that figures in at all.
I need a family for Devine. I need somebody to step out of their comfort zone and say, "Kid. I'm here to change. your. world."
I need a safe bed and a warm lap and a "you are so worth it" for this kid.
If you can't be Devine's hallelujah, could you please pass on his information in the hopes that a family willing to be his "yes" might see it?
December 1st. If 100 people comment to tell me (and prove it) how you shared about Devine's status via social media, the blog stays. If not, that's okay. I get it. It's probably been in the works for awhile anyhow.
And, of course, if we DO hit the hundred mark, you never know just how we may have to celebrate...
Thank you for sharing Devine's story.
Thanks for praying this kid into an amazing place with me. You never let me down.
