This has definitely been a birthday to remember!
We celebrated Kevin ALL DAY in the midst of dance recitals ALL DAY LONG! (Kevin opened all his presents first thing in the morning so he was happy with his Lightning McQueen and Thomas toys at the recital!)
We cannot thank each of you enough for your time to send such SWEET birthday messages to Kevin! We are printing out the entire 487 comments for Kevin to keep forever. Right now, he doesn't understand the meaning behind this, but one day he will. Can you imagine how blessed he will feel? It makes me smile to think about it!
WE certainly felt very blessed as we read through tears each heartfelt response.
Some of the comments were duplicates, but that doesn't matter! Here's the bottom-line:
487 X $3.00 = $1,461.00
One sweet friend stuck a $20.00 dollar bill in my hand at my girls' dance recital and said, "This is for Roy."
Some people could not comment for one reason or another so we are adding in their e-mail comments....
And so by God's grace, provision, and sovereignty, we are sending Roy $1,600.00 to go toward his heart surgery! I really feel like this is not from the Ferrill's, but from 487 + people who helped by leaving an encouraging comment or prayer. This is from all of YOU, too. :) To celebrate Kevin, and to honor the memory of Esther and Paul and countless other children....
Thank you. Thank you to those who posted about this birthday party on facebook or blogs or emails. Thank you for spreading the fun for Kevin!
And thank you for giving your time to help Roy. Please continue to pray for him and the many other orphans who need surgery ASAP! And if you would like to help out with the remaining amount of his surgery, please go here!
Also, my friend Kathy is having an awesome raffle to raise money for her adoption....you might be interested in the amazing things she is auctioning HERE!
