A Christmas Miracle for Evelyn

Urgent! Please pray for Jonathan!

Jonathan...


I just learned about Jonathan from Adeye's blog.

He has a birthday on December 31.

He will turn 16 in less than 2 1/2 weeks.

If he lived with his family in the US...

Turning 16 would be exciting...

Maybe he would be getting his drivers licence...

But he would still have his parents to guide him...

To help him learn how to be a man...

To guide him as he transitions to adulthood...

But Jonathan lives in an orphanage.

While that may sound bad...

Things are about to become worse.

Soon after his birthday he will be turned out on the street to fend for himself...

With no job...

No one to mentor him and give him advice...

No way to support himself...

Most kids in his situation end up in crime to support themselves...

Jonathan is a good kid...

He does not want to be in trouble out on the streets...

He wants a family!


Here is some information about him I copied from Adeye's blog...

"Jonathan is apparently a very, very good boy. He has a great sense of humor which has been confirmed by other kids in his class and two children who were recently adopted to U.S. He loves to work on a computer, takes part in virtually all theatrical performances organized at the orphanage, just a great actor, very calm when not on stage, never gets in trouble, loves sports and plays soccer, played basketball and trained in light athletics, studies at good level. Jonathan is respectful to adults and older children. He is obedient and always ready to help. NEEDS A FAMILY to file for immigration ASAP, can adopt later. BEGS translator when he visits if he has found his family yet, desperately wants to be adopted. Can be chatted to on Skype as well as email."

Quoting again from Adeye's blog...

"Jonathan has a matter of DAYS to find a family.  Mere DAYS!

"In order for this boy to be rescued from a life that few of us can even begin to imagine, a family needs to step forward in the next few days and commit to him!  I'm told that as long as there is a commitment and the I600 visa is applied for, he will be kept where he is, and the adoption can be completed later.  That's the good news.

"Right now what is needed is a family who has adopted internationally before.  From the contact I have been given, "He needs a family that is married, can travel, and has a homestudy that can be used for immigration approval and is willing to apply for immigration in the next week.  If a family is ready to apply they will work directly with the facilitator who knows him."

"One week!  A visa HAS to be applied for in the next week in order to save this boy! ....

"Please, I'm begging you to share his story wherever you possibly can!  It is the only way his family will find their son.

If anyone would like more information about adopting Jonathan, please contact Amy atwaitingchildren@gmail.com"




Please pray for Jonathan!

It may seen impossible but God can work miracles!

God can save Jonathan!
