I just found more information on sweet Ryan from someone who volunteered at his orphanage for a while. She met him and gave him love and attention while he was there. She has posted more pictures of him, and wow, he really needs a family ASAP! He is SOOO painfully thin. His eyes are so sad:( Please pray for him and donate to his grant fund if you can!
Please also pray for his country (which I cannot name). It is about to undergo a restructuring of the adoption process. Much prayer is needed that the process goes quickly so that adoptions can proceed (adoptions will be ON HOLD during the process). Also it is important to pray that the decisions made during this restructuring will be in the best interest of the children, otherwise some children who were available for international adoption will have to wait until they are 5 years old to be adopted by foreign families. Some of these children have almost no chance of being adopted in there own country because of their special needs. Please read Julia's post where she details the situation and the prayer needs in this urgent situation.
