Find A Family Friday - Keegan and Juliette

I am planning on starting a new weekly post. Find A Family Fridays. These posts will include one or two children that are still in need of families to adopt them.

Keep in mind that there are ALWAYS ways you can help, even if you cannot adopt. You can advocate for these little sweeties, you can share them with others, you can donate to their funds.

You can look up the families that are already committed to bringing children home, we all appreciate any help bringing our children home.

You never know who may see these children and feel called to go get them, maybe YOU will be the one to show someone their future child?

First up I want to tell you about Keegan.

This little sweetheart is only 15 months old... He will be transferred to an ADULT mental institution if nobody comes for him. Normally this would happen when he is 4-5 years old. THIS IS URGENT!! If nobody comes for him, NOW, he will be transferred. This is imminent. His Baby house/orphanage is closing! 

Here is Ava at about 15 months old...

At 15 months, Ava had a family to love her... she could play with her big sisters. She was celebrating a big sisters birthday with a huge family gathering. She has been the center of attention for many people, she had cousins to love her, and play with. She had life! 

Imagine how Keegan would thrive with a family to love him. A mommy to cheer him on and help him learn, to nurture him, and comfort him. A Daddy to go places with, to learn those fun guy things with, to look up to. Maybe brothers and sisters to play with, cousins to visit, grandparents to dote on him. The possibilities are endless...

BUT, if nobody commits to bring him home...his life will look entirely different. This is hard to think about, but it MUST be done. We cannot look away from these needs to protect our own feelings. He needs our help. He will be put in an INSTITUTION! With grown men. There they will all sit, waiting out their days...sitting in their own filth...he may live for years in this miserable place, staring at blank walls, listening to the moans of others, no love or attention, no comfort... Or he may not survive long...the conditions may be so harsh that his little body just cannot handle it for long. This Truly is a LIFE OR DEATH situation!  

Please help us get the word out about Keegan, if you can donate that will help whoever commits to him, if not PLEASE share him with all your fb friends, twitter, email etc. EVERYWHERE! There has got to be someone out there willing to go get this precious little boy and save his life! The most important thing to do is get him out there, raise awareness for his plight. and PRAY PRAY PRAY...that somebody will come forward for him. 

He is weighing SO heavy on my heart, it just about breaks me to think of what could happen if nobody goes. I want to go get him myself, but we are already committed to Jaxon. If nobody were to go get Jaxon he will face the same fate in a few years. Who's to say Jaxon's baby house couldn't have the same thing happen..  

What if it were Ava...you saw the pictures above. WHAT IF...Ava was born in Eastern Europe...would you go get her? Would you help her all you could...? It pains me to think of the things that she would suffer, all because of that extra chromosome. My sweet sweet girl, would be left in a crib, she wouldn't have opportunity to thrive like she has. Oh the things that a loving family can do for a child. Please share this need. 

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE (said of course in the infomercial voice!) More you say...havn't you said enough, haven't you shown us enough sadness for one day, isn't that about all we can handle? 

I have to say no. There is also a sweet sweet girl weighing heavy on my heart. I just spoke of what it might be like for Ava had she been born elsewhere... let's take a look at this picture...

Meet Juliette...

Does she not look JUST like a grown up Ava!! 

Imagine for a second the scenario I painted for keegan's imminent future if no one rescues him. Now picture sweet Juliette there... she is closer to this future then we'd like to think. She is about 8-9 months older than Ava...That means she is just over two years old... 
Still young enough to experience the amazing changes and love that a family can give, young enough to hopefully not remember any bad things from her little life so far. BUT, if nobody goes for her, she has less than two years before facing the institution. 

I want to go for her SO bad! It's almost like she's ours, she looks SO much like Ava...
If she is still waiting after Jaxon is home, I would seriously consider going to get her. But I am PRAYING hard, that somebody sees her, her mommy and daddy...That somebody goes and gets her, as soon as they can! Please will you share her too. 

You can get to their pages with their information by clicking their pictures. 

Will you pray with me?

Instead of turning away, instead of saying, I can't afford to help financially, would you pray. It is FREE! it can do wonders! Would you take the next 30 days and pray for Keegan? Would you pray for Juliette? Pray that they find families! Just once a day, it won't even take more than 5 minutes of your time. Pray for  them, that God will watch over them, and that families will come forward for them. 

Will YOU take the 30 day challenge with me? 

Don't forget to pray for Jaxon too. 

Keep Looking Up!
