Another Referral! :)

We got our referral today for Philippe! I gotta say it - since there is a vast number of folks out there saying his name wrong I thought I would let you know his name is pronouced Fil-Leap, not Fil-Leap-Pay. Es French, no Espanol.

If you missed it, we first learned on January 4 that Patricia (Pa-tree-see-a) had a younger brother. We didn't know that he was available to be adopted until early February. He was still with his father at that time. He was brought in to the orphanage within the last month. The orphanage turns away 80 children a month and Philippe was also turned away because the orphanage doesn't have enough funding.

If you would like to donate to the orphanage so that they can continue to provide housing, education, purified water, food and medical care to the children (or say YES! to new children), please click here.

Goodness Gracious! You're gonna be busy. What a blessing. I do pray for the orphanage and funding. Terry

There just isn't room for more children at the O. until some go home to their adoptive families. The rooms are really full. The problem is with how long it is taking to process children. (Not that they couldn't use extra money. Right now food cost so much!)

He is adorable. I can't wait to see a smile on that face. It's so nice that they can be adopted together.

Love him, love him, love him. Yep.

Absolutely wonderful! So happy for you guys.

@Kathy - so we still need to help with money, just not necessarily directly to the orphanage. We need to help these mamas and daddies get their little ones home to free up room!

He's such a beautiful boy. My brother's boss (French guy) is name Phillipe, so I am used to saying it that way :)

Hope the china referrals speed up!
