Teamwork Tuesday--Beau 15H

UPDATE!!  Beau has been adopted in country!!  What a blessing for this special young man!!

What a handsome young man we have to share with you today!!

Beau is such a handsome young man!!   He is 8 years old, and has blond hair and gray eyes.  Beau has cerebral palsy, but he doesn't let that stop him!!  From his Reece's Rainbow profile page:

Beau does not make an impression of a child who lives in an orphanage from his birth. Beau is very well developed, already knows how to read by syllables and is able to spell, write and count. The child loves to learn more and will be a promising student in a future.  He is kind and friendly with the children and polite with the adults. He can be left alone in a room and will play with puzzles and mosaics for hours. He also likes to draw and is interested in technologies. He is a very accurate boy and likes cleanliness and order. He goes to the bathroom by himself and never forgets to brush his teeth and comb the hair. Beau walks without help but has spastic paraparetic gait.

Beau is mobile and independent!  Cerebral palsy is not a degenerative condition, which means it doesn't get worse over time.   There's nothing scary about Beau!! 

Here are the requirements for adopting in Beau's Region:
  • 1st trip, Both parents for 5-7 days
  • 3 trips total
  • 2-3 month wait for the judge to appoint the court hearing
  • Both parents travel for 2nd trip about 7 days, both parents leave after the court hearing
  • 30-day waiting period is NOT waived for special needs
  • Only one parent would need to return after the 30-day wait
  • Up to 5 young children in the home
  •  if the family income is sizeable (the adopted child being the 5th child). Up to 7 children at home may be permitted on a case-by-case basis if income is adequate and some of the children at home are older (teenagers)
  • Both parents must be younger than 60 years
  • Parents may NOT be currently on anti-depressants; prior history of anti-depressants may be permitted on a case-by-case basis
  • No criminal background (DWI’s acceptable on a case by case basis)
  • Fee includes orphanage donation
  • Married couples and single heterosexual mothers may apply
  • Un-related children may not be adopted simultaneously
  • Total program and travel fees approx $35-40K

 Did you notice that bottom number?  $35-40K?  Beau only has $257 in his adoption fund.  Can we increase that a bit?

Let's pray over Beau.  Pray about donating to his fund.  Pray that his Mama and Daddy find him.  Pray, and share, and pray some more!!  Let's get Beau found!
