Last year, he was very very sick on his birthday. Bless his baby heart. He had that mean ol' fluid around his heart and had got that mean ol' staph infection in the hospital and was on that mean ol' Bactrim that gave him Stevens Johnson Syndrome.
He was painfully puffy.
Sigh. It was a very sick day for him.
So much healthier, praise the Lord!
AND WE WANT TO CELEBRATE GOD'S MERCY AND GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!
Will YOU help us celebrate Kevin's life, and at the same time, honor the memory of Esther and Paul and all the other orphans who passed from this life before meeting their forever family?
Here is how: Leave a birthday message for Kevin! For every comment we receive on this post (one comment per person please!), our family will donate $3.00 toward a life-saving surgery for this little orphan in China, named Roy.
Here is what New Day says about little Roy:
"Roy was born December 20, 2010 and abandoned one week later. When the police were unable to find his parents they brought him to the local orphanage. Roy was born with heart disease (ASD) and a deformed left ear. When he arrived at New Day Foster Home, on April 12, 2011, he was very tiny and weak. Though Roy does not have a lot of strength, he is alert and follows people’s motions with his eyes. He is gentle and has a good temperament. Roy has a strong grasp and holds tightly to adult’s fingers. He sleeps and eats well. We are blessed to care for this sweet little boy and look forward to watching him grow strong and happy."
Roy has been battling pneumonia this past month and has been in the PICU. We know how dangerous this illness is for a child with a heart condition. Please pray for his healing. Roy desperately needs this surgery to thrive. And one day, Lord-willing, he will be able to meet his forever family and live an abundant, full life! Think how HUGE that is! And YOU can help make it happen, just by leaving a birthday comment for our Kevin! I know I don't have a plethora of followers, and I sure do love each and every one of you! Please tell your friends, your family, your mailman! Let's celebrate LIFE!
(This birthday party ends Saturday night, May 21st at midnight central time)
