This morning, I want to tell you about a boy.
His name is Brenton.
Isn't he sweetness?
Brenton has a very important birthday coming up and he needs us to help celebrate it for him.
Brenton turns 16 on October 7th.
You read that correctly, the little boy in the picture above is about to be 16 years old.
Brenton is living in a mental institution in Eastern Europe.
He's a tiny guy for nearly 16 years old and spends most of his time in a wheelchair.
Brenton has only recently been transferred to this Asylum for Boys.
He still has a lot of joy.
The harsh reality is this: Brenton, the bright, beautiful little boy you see above has waited for over 15 years to be chosen.
Now, we have 27 days. 27 days find a way to begin to redeem those lost 15 years.
What does Brenton need for his Birthday?
Specifically, a home study ready family, who can file their USCIS paperwork prior to Brenton's 16th Birthday on October 7th.
That's 27 days from now. 27 days for us to rise up and declare that Brenton is worth choosing.
Brenton's pictures arrived in my message box, last night, with a plea to help. Within minutes tears were streaming down my face. This precious child has lost nearly 16 years, most of his childhood, because no one has seen him, until now. No one noticed Brenton until it was almost too late.
Almost, but not.
27 days, Church, 27 days and then, this little light will be shut away for the rest of his life.
That's a lot of light to shut up in the darkness.
Unfortunately, I can tell you what will happen if we fail Brenton. The light will begin to fade. A family will miss out on the joy of a son. He will one day die alone, never knowing the love of family and friends.
Will you stand with me in the gap for Brenton?
Will you look at him and pray for him, like he belongs to you?
16 years is a long time to listen to the lie that you're unworthy, unloved, unwanted.
Let's change that for Brenton. Let's declare to the world that he is worthy, loved and wanted.
Help find Brenton's Family.
Share his picture, everywhere and with everyone that you can think of.
We have 27 days to find Brenton the best birthday gift possible.
Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support...Do Something!
