Since I came across Reece's Rainbow, there have been several kiddos that grabbed ahold of my heart instantly. Maybe you know what I'm talking about. That "connection" that just moves you to tears. You see many faces but you go back to these same kids everyday, sometimes several times a day, because you are drawn to them. There is just something there. Can't explain it. It's just there. The first little boy that caught my eye, reached thru the computer and grabbed me, was Aaron. This was when I first learned of RR and began to follow this ministry. Not long after this, I learned that Aaron had a family coming for him. Wow I thought. What a lucky family. Then I found out who they were and I began to follow their journey to Aaron. I was already on a journey of my own. I just didn't know the destination yet. But as I followed them and became more aware and involved with RR, it became very clear that THIS was the destination and I prayed that I could somehow play a small part in helping some of these precious kiddos. It was Aaron's mom Julia, who introduced me to the next little fellow who would steal my heart and eventually give my next son his name.
Gavin.......sweet, precious, Gavin. (RR gives each child a "screen" name instead of using their real names to protect their idenity.)
