Waiting Wednesday: Timothy

Today, meet Timothy.

Timothy is living with a family in his country who takes care of special needs orphans.

But he is available for adoption, his papers are ready, and they want to find him a forever family.

He just had a birthday, this past Sunday in fact! He turned 12, but don't let that scare you off.

Older children are just as much deserving of families as the babies. They've waited longer, they've lost out on more.

We need to work to bring them home, and be God's hands and feet to restore what the locust has eaten.

To give these kids hope, and a home, and love. Because they deserve more than what their current future holds for them.

Timothy has 2 years to find a family, and while that may seem like a lot, the process to bring him home may take up a good chunk of that. Plus we don't have to wait till the very end to find him a family!

He is blind and has cerebral palsy. Two things that may seem like huge medical diagnoses, but once you get past the initial appts, and get used to living with them, they really aren't that big of deal. And even if they are, it's better he is taken care of here with a family.

He is FLUENT in ENGLISH! How cool is that? His family won't have language as a barrier to love him! He is also described as an affectionate and humorous boy.

Could he be your son?? I'm sure he'd make a great one!

If ou are interested in him, please email me and I'll put you in contact with the family he is living with- forhisgloryhandiwork(at)gmail(dot)com.
