As of 5pm CST, almost $3500 in verified funds has been raised for Malcolm's grant fund with Reece's Rainbow!! A "crazy" goal to raise $500 in one day has resulted in almost $1500....and we know that several more checks are on their way "snail mail"!
Malcolm's mom and dad: GOD HAS GOT THIS!!!!
Don't let fear stop you! We will stay with you on this journey!!! We are already planning another fundraiser and another appeal in March!
To everyone who heard his story and made a donation....THANK YOU!
To everyone who is praying for Malcolm.... THANK YOU!!
To everyone who was looking for proof that God is alive and that love conquerors all....
have a blessed weekend!!!
Henry continues to recuperate from croup...
we are trying to feed him A LOT to make up from the weight he lost in the hospital - he is back under 14 pounds, phooey!
He is liking solids more and more every day! We add coconut oil and green superfood protein powder and flaxseed to his pureed fruits and vegetables to give him some more caloric and nutritional oomph! He also takes lemon flavored cod liver oil every day...and thanks to the generosity of some awesome milky mommas (since my personal stash is now gone) he takes about 5 ounces of breasmilk every day to help heal his little tummy!
But this post is not about Henry...
it is once again about this little guy who weighs heavy on my heart...
You may remember him from this post: http://www.bringinghenryhome.blogspot.com/2012/01/all-you-henry-fans-will-have-to-wait.html
Here is his full profile on Reece's Rainbow: http://reecesrainbow.org/?s=Malcolm&x=3&y=10
Here is the highlight that makes my heart ache:
Malcolm needs family badly. He is very emotional, sensitive and not a leader by
nature and is being hurt by older and physically healthy children in the orphanage. He can hardly walk but retains sensitivity in the feet. There is a chance only in
the presence of caring
and loving parents Malcolm can
walk independently in a future but in the orphanage environment the child is afraid of
everything even walking. Malcolm has a favorite little toy: stuffed tiger, he carries it everywhere, he kisses it, puts to sleep, worries about it. Malcolm is interested in all new, he knows
the names and colors, understands commands, has attachments to friends in
a group, he goes on contact easily and is pleased to dialogue
But can you see the walker in the new picture above?? Malcolm is walking!!!
Here is the video that proves it!!!
His CP is truly treatable!!! We have medical treatments here in the US that will most likely make him a totally independent walker!!!

I know a family who is in LOVE with Malcolm but cannot adopt him...
They have already moved his grant fund with Reece's Rainbow close to $2000!!
RR knows that when a child's grant moves over $2500 people start to inquire!!!
Can we do this??
Can we move Malcolm over $2500 TODAY, this First Friday of Lent???
Can you make Malcolm part of your prayer and fasting and almsgiving???
He is scheduled to be moved to an institution when he turns 5 in April!
Oh my heart. This shy quiet loving boy who is already being bullied by other boys in a BABY HOUSE (children 0-5)???
How will he fare in an INSTITUTION with boys AND MEN ages 5-45?!?!?!
I cannot imagine it.
I will not stand for it.
Malcolm lives in an expensive country to adopt from. They have lots of rules. They require 3 trips.
But Malcolm is worth it.
So worth it.
Please join me in sharing his story...
in bulking up his grant fund...
and in praying him home.
