Clear back when we were working hard to raise the funds to get a small team over to Katya's orphanage in EE in 2009, a blogger stumbled on to a link or post about our project, Being both an adoptee and an adoptive father himself, he--Hevel--was interested, and began following my blog. Over time, our family and his have gradually learned to know each other a little better via the wonders of modern communication. Now Hevel has a family of children. And they have been having a heart for Katya and her need for a family.
So what do you think they did? They decided to do something revolutionary . . . something amazing in this day and age. Something awesomely kind and wonderful . . .something that WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN KATYA's LIFE.
This family has a tradition that the children enjoy. They like to go once in awhile to a shop on Friday and enjoy either some coffee or a nice hot cup of chocolate. But, thought these children, if we would be willing to give that up . . . and do something to help Katya . . .
And so the idea was born!! You can read all about it and how YOU can participate by going HERE. Because with generous, caring children like that over on the other side of the world . . . children who KNOW what it's like to need a family . . . surely . . . surely . . . they won't be let down for lack of participation in their grand idea, will they?? No, I have faith they WILL NOT. You, my faithful readers will NOT let them down--of that, I am sure!!
