SEE them !!



 



Some of you may have been around when I first started this blog, in the fall of 2011.  Until then, the older children (aged 6+) shared a grant - the grant grew until one of the older children were chosen - and then their family got whatever was in the grant at the time. Then, the grant re-set to zero, and grew again until another older child was chosen.
 
This all changed, though, in September 2011, when Reece's Rainbow decided (thankfully), that each older child would have their own grant. 
Unfortunately, this meant that all of the kids had ZERO in their grants to start with - just as if they were newly listed. 
And so this blog was born - to try and zero the zeros of all of the 171 older kids. Amazingly, we did manage to do it - and then, over time,  we got the kids all up to $20 in their grants - and then up to $50 in their grants. Baby steps !! Since then, the goal has been to get them all up to and beyond $100 - while at the same time, trying to zap the zeros of the newly listed older kids AND then get them up to $100 !!! 
Sometimes I feel like I am banging my head against a wall - but then I look back and see how far we have come, and I am truly amazed !! 
 
Below is a list of the older children who were listed and had donation buttons in September 2011 - every single child listed below had precisely ZERO in their grants almost 3 years ago. 

I updated the list in September 2012, the last week of May 2013, on September 22nd 2013, on January 1st 2014.
It is now July 21st 2014 and I have updated again.
 
Most of the children have a much more substantial grant now - many, thanks to New Hope grants, gifted to them from children no longer available for adoption, due to the Ru$$ian adoption ban.

Sadly, a few more of the children are now "on hold", due to unrest in their country. While they are currently unavailable for adoption, their grant stays with them, although they cannot accept any new donations at this time.
 
MANY children  have been adopted and are already home with their families !!! 
 
Many have families actively working to bring them home !!!
 
Look at the list - scroll down - LOOK at all the RED !!!!!
 
LOOK at the numbers - the grants - just look !!
These kids had ZERO almost 3 years ago !!!!

Sad.
Please - SEE those children - SEE them !!

See  Caesar - $51.50

See  Leila - $55

Someone SAW Nathan -  $50 $54.50 $69.80 $105.80 !!!!
THANK YOU !!!!!

Can you help ?
Can you help the last four three two of the "original zeros" leap that $100 wall ??
Can we get them to $100 before three whole years have passed ?
 


 
Can you help them be seen ?
 
Can you help ALL of these kids, who have been waiting for so long, be seen ?
 
Maybe YOU are their family ?
 
Maybe you know their family.
 
Maybe YOUR share - on your blog, on Facebook, by e-mails - will be the one that gets them seen.

 
Please don't ignore them - please see them, and be their hope !
 
 Let's also rejoice in the RED names - those that have been found - as well as the large grants that many of the children now have !! 
 We may only take baby steps - but just watch those children soar as their grants grow and grow and grow !!!
 Please - do what you can to SHARE these children !!  Click on any name in the list and it should take you to their profile, where you can see, in most cases, a picture, as well as a description.
 Please - share - it's the only way their families will find them !!
 Please - if you can - donate !!
 Pray !
