Sebastien, The Great!

After years of sponsoring sweet Andres in Ecuador though Children International (his family graduated from the program!), we decided to sponsor a child through God's Littlest Angels in Haiti.  I was drawn to a little eight year old boy named Sebastien.  Babies are sweet and cute, but readily get adopted and don't remember their orphanage days.  But this boy was eight, had medical needs, and was being handed over to an orphanage as a school-aged child.  Can you imagine the hard decision this mother had to make, and the grieving this little boy went through?  And he still is going through...

Sebastien was born with club feet that were never corrected until now.  Here is what his nurse at GLA beautifully wrote about Sebastien upon his arrival in October 2011:

He has since had the halos removed from his legs and is now casted.  This is him today:

(OK, trying to convert the WORD pic to a jpg file and will edit it in later!)

Sponsorship is just $30 a month, and I pay it automatically through PayPal.  We are also able to send him packages directly (through the Florida office).  GLA is wonderful about sending us pictures of Sebastien receiving his packages.  This is such a good thing for my little kids.  Most of the goodies are new, but Hannah and Nick also dig into their closets and drawers for things to give to Sebastien as well :-)
