My sweet friend, Laine, and I go back a ways. Several years ago our families got the chance to meet up in person – it was as if we’d known each other forever. I just love them so very much.
And God used her family, and their story, in a big way on our journey to Esther.
When they brought home Kevin just over a year ago – a precious little boy with a very serious heart defect – well… Chris and I were just blown away. At their faith, their courage, their focus on following God instead of the ‘world’.
You see, Kevin’s special need was serious. So very serious that upon committing to bring him home from China, they did not even know if he would survive.
And today, there is some BIG partying going on. Kevin is doing so very well, and tomorrow will be turning 4 – praise God!
In honor of this special day, his lovin’ family is going to donate to a little boy in China who waits for his chance at life-saving heart surgery. $3, in fact, for EACH birthday wish left on this post.
To honor Kevin – and to celebrate his life.
And to honor those whose hearts were not healed this side of heaven – sweet Paul and our beloved Esther.
So get over there and leave a wish for the birthday boy, Kevin.
And you’ll be making a difference for some very special little ones.
