Project Oberon and Washington

(((As of 2-20-13 Washington has a family pursuing his adoption!!!! Yippee! Overjoyed! 
His dreams are coming true!!!))))

Ok... so I am adding a child to who I am advocating for... 

Washington is 11 years old.  
He is deaf and has had limited schooling in his home country.

This is the description from a family that recently spent time with him:
Washington’s personality is very sweet and thoughtful. He is wonderful with younger children and always offering to help without being asked to. He also really wants a family. He carries in his pocket a newspaper picture of a random family that he showed us. Broke my heart not to be able to take him home with us right then. He can write his letters and can show you the sign language for each one, so despite a limited education he seems like a really bright child.
Are you the one to give his boy his dream….turning that random newspaper picture into a real one?
Ok, is that IMPOSSIBLE to read with out putting your whole life into perspective?
Really, that is all he needs, a family.

Our family verse in part is... 1 John 3:16,17
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.  If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?"

Don't forget about sweet Oberon!

Really both Washington and Oberon need a family! 
That is their ONLY special need! 
Let's share their stories and see if there is a family out there for them!

Maybe "orphan care" isn't your thing, or adoption... (I am not even sure it is "my thing")... but it is God's thing.
Let's seek justice for both of these boys who have NO other options!
