Find My Family Friday ~ Olen, Again!

This precious one STILL. WAITS. Heartbreaking.... I blogged about him HERE. And I'm making a plea for him today. Olen is so young! He could have the opportunity to get early intervention. We know how truly vital this is. Our boys spent 3.5 & 6 years in an orphanage and missed out on that early intervention that would have helped them in so many areas. Olen NEEDS a family, like yesterday!

Olen will turn 1 year old in May with no family. Somebody please say "YES" to giving this sweet boy the family he deserves. And when he's home please let me come snuggle him & kiss his sweet cheeks.

Here am I, Send me!

Isaiah's Commission:

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
He said, “Go and tell this people. ~Isaiah 6:8,9

This beautiful necklace designed by the wonderful Dawn Patterson over at Funky Fish Designs, helps get our tribe a little closer to Africa! I absolutely LOVE it & am thrilled to share it with you! This will look amazing around your neck or make a sweet gift for someone you love. Thank you for being a part of our "Yes." 
Head on over to purchase yours!

 Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” ~Matthew 28:18-20
