Thanks AGAIN to Natalie for the new pictures! :D
Ok, maybe not EVER, but for the time being. :) And yes, I know, 'bestest' isn't a word.... but hey! I'm excited!
On Tuesday, after I posted this post with pictures on Logan, I got the best comment of my life!!!!!!
And for you nosy cheaters.... You won't be able to go back and find it because I deleted it! ;)
The comment was something along the lines of - "Please email me... This is IMPORTANT... Can't share it publicly."
I emailed her back 2 seconds later!
There next 15 minutes were horrible! Would it be good news or bad news? I guessed she was going to say he had a family??? Or that he wasn't available, or even worse, that he had been transferred.
I checked my email lots of times in that 15 minutes and I don't know how many times I prayed for patience! :)
After what seemed like forever, even though it was only about 15 minutes later, she emailed back.
When I saw it, the page couldn't NOT load fast enough!
After I read it, I had to read it again to make sure I understood it. Then I screamed, started crying and almost hyperventilated!
Because in the email said (edited for this public blog)...
Please do not share (she meant do not share who they are publicly, but she did give me permission to post here with out sharing specifically who they are), but I think we love the same child. I am the future mother (or pray I can be) of a certain little boy featured on your blog. Please do not search for his family any more because he has one. He has a mom, dad, and siblings who are anxious to get him home!!! I am praying that his country changes their laws so he can come home sooner!
I THINK THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST EMAILS I EVER RECEIVED!!!!
If you didn't catch that....
!!!!!!!LOGAN HAS A FAMILY!!!!!!!
Sorry, Blogger won't let me make that any bigger!!!!!! :)
I AM SOOOO HAPPY FOR BOTH MY SWEET BOY AND HIS SWEET FAMILY, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THEM!!!!
You may or may not remember when I posted here about the special needs list needing to be expanded.(Sorry I don't know why the pictures aren't working on there. I don't remember which ones they were or I would put them on there again!) If a child's special need isn't on the list, they aren't available until they are 5. Well, it hasn't been expanded yet, but the new one is scheduled to come out on October 10th. unfortunately we don't know what will or won't be on the list. Logan has FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome), which isn't on the current list, and he doesn't turn 5 for a year yet. That's why you can't find him on Reece's Rainbow right now. That's also why you won't find him on the My Family Found Me page. And his family cannot commit to him through RR until he is available again. And I can't tell you who they are until they are on the New Commitments, which in short won't happen until FAS is added to the list, or his birthday! So if you want to see who his family is PRAY THAT FAS IS ON THE NEW LIST!!! And for the simple fact that he and many others will get home sooner, PRAY THAT EVERY NEED THAT INS'T ON THE LIST GETS ADDED! :)
I also have a fundraiser on this blog in the works (I know! My first fundraiser! :)) on this blog. Logan's family does have some fundraisers going on there blog, and I soo wish I could link to them, but I can't. :( So you'll have to deal with me for now. But trust me when I say they are awesome and they deserve all the support we can give them! :)
I know there isn't anyway for you to donate right now, but every penny you might donate in the future will be well spent paying this babe's ransom and getting him HOME where he belongs!! But most important.. they need your PRAYERS!!!! :)
|Logan and I - Summer 2010|

P.S. If you want to leave an encouraging comment for Logan's mama, I'm sure she will be reading! :)
