Fatherless Friday

This is Alexander.  He's SUCH a sweet boy.  My friend Gretchen has met him and just fell in love with him.  Sadly, Alexander has since been transferred out of his orphanage and into an institution.  Look at that smile on his face, and then imagine how he felt when he arrived at the institution....and realized that he wasn't going back 'home' to the only people that were familiar to him.  I can't imagine what that must feel like for these children.  He's only a little boy!  So small and at the mercy of everyone around him. 

But it's NOT too late for him.  He CAN still have a family, a life outside of an institution ...where he will be valued and treasured...where he can be someones beloved son.

He does have a grant of over $7,000 to help with the cost of his adoption.

Please take a minute to go to my Friend Gretchen's blog and watch the video she took of him last July.  It truly shows his sweet and gentle spirit.
