Brayden Needs a Family NOW

Update:
Brayden's description has been updated to "Matched". He has the family he desperately needs. Please keep him in your prayers while he waits for his family to get to him.
 
 
Brayden's face breaks my heart. He looks as if he has never known happiness. This little guy needs help fast.
Brayden was born in November 2012. His description says he is quiet, and loves listening to music. I bet he's easy to comfort!
It also says,
 "You can hear him laugh out loud, especially when playing with toys that make sound. He is a good sleeper, and has begun to have other food with his milk at meal times. As of September 2013, he could raise his head while lying on his stomach and roll over on his own. He could pick up small objects like beans, reach for toys beyond his grasp, and pass a toy from one hand to the other. He would also turn when his name was called, and express “no”. He was able to differentiate between strangers and caretakers, and react appropriately to adults’ facial expressions. Brayden was born with a cleft lip on one side, but no cleft palate, and a heart condition. He also has one eyelid that droops. In a recent update, Brayden has grown a few centimeters in the last year, but has lost weight. He is in need of a family as soon as possible so that he can get the medical care he needs so that he can gain weight and thrive."

 
Just look at the difference in his pictures; Brayden is not thriving by any stretch of the imagination.
Another description of him says this,
 
'Brayden is 2 years old, and has a CHD (ASD) which has not been addressed. His cleft lip has not been repaired (he does not have a cleft palate). He has ptosis of his left eyelid (a simple procedure would fix that). He has lost weight, and has not achieved the developmental milestones that he should. Brayden needs help. He needs a thorough medical, and surgery to repair his lip, for starters. He needs therapy and the love and attention of a family who truly want the best for him. Brayden needs a mommy and daddy. His adoption fund on Reece's Rainbow is a bit over $6,400. He needs to come home."
My friend Allie, who advocated for him on her blog, wrote, "He currently has $6,616.26 donated for his adoption. That's a lot of money. And if every person who gave money is praying for him, that's a lot of prayers. Somewhere his family is out there. We just need to find them. "
 
Please join me in praying for Brayden's forever family to find him. He can't wait much longer.
 
 
His file is currently with Hawaii International Child {It should be able to be moved to any other agency.} Contact his current agency here. You can view his Reece's Rainbow account here.
 
 
Love in Christ,
