Boy, born July, 2005

Patrick has arthrogryposis, and uses a wheelchair to get around (it's not clear if he's walking on his own at all).
This boy has had an unbelievably sad life.  His mother gave birth to a little boy with arthrogryposis, but she didn't refuse her child; they were together, only Patrick and his Mom.   The Mom had no money for treatment for her son.   In January 2011, the Mom found out that the Baby house opened a group for special needs children (like a kindergarten), and finally she would be able to find a job.  It was also important to her that her boy would meet other children with similar disabilities. So, Patrick started to visit the “kindergarten”, and his Mom wanted to find a job, but then she was diagnosed with cancer.  She was hospitalized, but any day when she could, she went to visit her son.  
In March his Mother died, and Patrick doesn't yet believe that his Mom won't come back.  It's heartbreaking to see this little boy in a wheel chair trying to find Mom's face in every lady coming to the Baby house.

$600.90 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

Isn't he sweet? My heart broke when I heard his story on Julia's blog. Tonight... we found out he has a FAMILY!!! I am sooo excited for him! :D And I was going to post about him tomorrow for Waiting Wednesday, but I guess he'll have to wait until a Friday! :) I am soo happy for his family, and I hope I get to meet them and their precious boy someday! :) And please don't stop donating to him!!! He only has $600 dollars in his account, but he needs over $20,000 to get home. Just because he has a family doesn't mean they don't need donations!! And keep checking to 'meet' his family on the New Commitments page! :)

And thank you everyone for your suggestions for 'Mazing Monday! Michelle, Lilya is coming on August 15th! :) And Andrea, thank you so much for the whole list! I will definitively be using it! :) And everyone else, I'm not done taking suggestions! (See previous post) I will also open it up to Waiting Wednesday, even though I don't usually have problems finding someone. Thank you all in advance!


  1. Praise the Lord! Sweet little Patrick.

  2. Awwwww, so sweet! Her b'day is Aug 12 :)

  3. You're right, there's far to many waiting kids to choose from... To stick with the "14" theme though, you haven't done "Aiden" or "Molly" yet :)
