our little boy! (some new pictures)

We received outstanding pictures from our facilitator in Bulgaria today with some pictures of our Little Dude.  LOOK!

He is described as inquisitive but shy.  He is still not walking independently; unfortunately the report we received from a very special lady who visited was inaccurate.  He is also very thin, and our agency is investigating trying to get him more nutrition (we would pay for this - to add Pediasure or something to his diet to help him grow)

Our facilitator was not permitted to see any other rooms other than this "play room".  They brought him, dressed "well" for this visit.  Unfortunately, our Bulgarian counterparts report that he has a bald and flat spot on the back of his head. Why do you think that is?

Because he spends a good portion of his day in a crib. 

I don't know many two year olds who spend time like that in their cribs, but this is because of the very poor care he receives in The Bad Place.  The workers would not let her see where he sleeps, either.  Gee, guess why?  It is legendary for its poor care, and he lives there.

The woman who took these pictures and visited him today said, "The orphanage is very bad.  He is a boy who needs a chance - he just needs a chance to be in a family and he will be so much improved."

We agree.  This little boy needs a chance at a family. 

We couldn't agree more.  Please help us give our Little Dude something to smile about all of the time.  His little smile says it better than I ever could.  Please consider entering the Mulligan Stew giveaway (button on right - you can win a new Ipad!!!!) or donating to our Reece's Rainbow account (tax deductible).  We are doing everything we can to move QUICKLY (which makes money a little tighter) because this is a boy who needs to be with his family as soon as he can. 

When I see this face, I know we must move quickly...before that sparkle leaves his eyes forever.

Thank you for your prayers and support.


  1. "He is also very thin, and our agency is investigating trying to get him more nutrition (we would pay for this - to add Pediasure or something to his diet to help him grow)"

    I hope they allow this to happen!!!!

  2. Your little boy is adorable! This waiting stage just stinks!! I know we just want to go get ours and bring him home so can only imagine since yours is in a bad place how badly you just want to go get him. Prayer sent his and your way that everything goes smoothly and as quickly as possible!!


  3. What a precious little guy! Praying that you're able to get some nutrition made available to him!

  4. I am so glad that your facilitator was able to confirm what I shared with you about the other caregiver believing the first little guy was not your Little Dude. I bet it feels good to see him. He sure looks handsome and I bet he and your daughter will have so much fun playing and learning together.

  5. He is adorable! Just stopping by, your blog was recommended to us as we adopted our daughter from Pleven in June 2011. God bless!
