No. I'm not exaggerating. This is pretty much the best news ever. ANDRE HAS A FAMILY!! And not just any family. My friend Amanda and her husband are adopting him. Amanda and I have been friends since 1st grade. We graduated from high school together and reconnected through facebook.
I had no idea that Amanda and her husband were considering adoption. I had no idea that she had searched the kids on Reeces Rainbow and felt drawn to Andre. I wasn't even planning to do the Christmas Campaign this year. I signed up in a moment of exhaustion and maybe incoherence. And now look!!
Next Christmas, there will be pictures of this little chunk with his family around the Christmas tree. Maybe even a screaming on Santa's lap picture? Next Christmas there will be presents, and cute outfits, and love, and a family!
Advocacy works. You never know who is looking or thinking or praying.
Here is what Andre's family had to say in the Reece's Rainbow Profile:
