Ok Ladies (and gentlemen?)... Meet our first official child on the blog to pray for. I am going to post his information for us to pray over and remember through this week. Feel free to even post your prayer in the comments...
There's just something about this little John... LOVE his description below taken from the TARE website.
John is a very smart child. He is inquisitive and witty with a great sense of humor. He is a very friendly child. John likes to draw pictures and read picture books. He is usually a very happy child who is full of energy. He enjoys running around and playing with the other kids in the foster home. John likes to pull pranks, laugh, and joke around with his foster parents. John has a medical condition that requires a full time nurse and daily medications. John is diagnosed with a Cardiac/Pulmonary condition which makes it difficult for John to get enough oxygen to his body. He also has Atrial Septal Defect Supraventricular Tachycardia, with left portal vein thrombosis. John has a gastrostomy button (or G-button) which provides access to the child's stomach for feedings and medications. John has been doing well and rarely has to use the G-button. He has been able to eat food regularly by mouth. Although he has this condition, he is currently healthy and very active.
The family who will be best suited for John would be one who can provide a loving, nurturing environment, and be able to care for his medical condition. The family will have to continue to meet John's developmental, physical,and emotional needs. The family must be patient and willing to work to understand and take care of John's medical condition.
If you know a family interested in adopting John, please leave a comment or email me!
