Noah needs a forever family

Those that know me, know that I have a very special place in my heart for orphans. Sometimes at night when I can't sleep, I'll got to website like adoptuskids.org or ReesesRainbow.org and pray for the children listed there. I've been doing that quite a lot lately. Right now we are not in a financial position to adopt, but we are doing what we can as foster parents to help children in our area who need safe, loving homes.

An adoptive mom and special-needs advocate recently learned about a boy named "Noah" who desperately wants a family. He knows what it feels like to have the love of a family, because he was in a family, but abandoned at the age of six. You can read more of his story here: http://www.nogreaterjoymom.com/2013/09/urgent-cry-of-young-mans-heart.html

Noah is 13 going on 14, and in his country, when you turn 14, you age-out of the system and cannot be adopted. Ever. No chance of a family. Ever! For Noah, that day will come in December - less than 3 months from now. I don't want him to age-out and be all alone. I am praying that someone will hear God's call and step out in faith to bring him home.

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about Noah, please go to http://wonderfulwaitingkids.com or contact Annie at "annie.hamlin@lifelinechild.org"
Serious inquiries only, please. Thank you in advance for spreading the word about this young man who wants to be in a family with all his heart.
