This is Peter

Last week was an amazing week for commitments at Reece's Rainbow. Several of the most at-risk children that I had been praying for had families commit to them. While I was looking at their sweet faces this morning I noticed a new face. This is Peter.

I noticed that he is only a couple of months older than Ralphie. He was born in February 2007. Then I noticed this in his description:

"congenital heart disease (ventricular septal defect with high degree of
pulmonary hypertension"

and my heart skipped a beat or two. High degree of pulmonary hypertension? This little guy needs a family to love him and access to excellent medical care right away!! Ralph has pulmonary hypertension, and let me tell you this - untreated it is a killer. Forget about the institution he will be sent to when he turns 4 or 5 years old. This sweet little guy may not live that long!

I just donated $10 that I don't have to his adoption grant fund. I challenge to you do the same thing. And please pray that the family God has chosen for him will step up to the plate soon and rescue him. God bless you.

Donate to Peter's adoption grant fund on this page.

Praying for this little cutie! I know how they can grab your heart!

I need to figure out how to do one of those chip ins and see if I can raise some more money for the little one that has captured mine.

Thank you for doing this!

I have posted Peter on our blog to help raise awareness for him as well. I hope that he finds a family soon.
