No, not the love of my life who I’ve had the privilage of being married to for 7 1/2 years, but another special little dude. This fella came into the world March 2010.

I know nothing about him, aside from what country he lives in and that he has the diagnosis of Hydrocephalus. Otherwise known as water on the brain, a condition that some doctor thought that my sister and I had as babies.

We didn’t, turns out we just had (and still do?) big heads.

Darren’s profile can be found on the same advocating site that Marnie, Yana and the brothers from Ukraine were.

Boy, born March 2010
Darren is very calm and smiling, but doesn’t sit or walk – he only lays because his head is too heavy.

He is happy when he sees the members of the staff, recognizes familiar people from strangers. He feels good when being around other children and adults. Grabs a toy when given to him and holds it for a while. Turns his head towards the direction of a sound. Makes active and passive movements with the limbs. Has a calm daily and night sleep.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

Yana of Russia and the boys from Ukraine had donate buttons under the paragraph telling who they are where funds may be given to further advance these kids chance of getting into an adoptive home. Darren does not have a donate button, as his information will only be held for a few weeks, perhaps up to 3 to 6 months max. His profile disappears without a family stepping forward to commit to an adoption. Once there is a family, money can be raised to bring him home.

I don’t know what happens once Reece’s Rainbow no longer has his picture and information, but I can pray for him. Maybe someone has an extra seat in their van, and $28000 kicking around. Someone who sees his profile in the next few weeks before it disappears. I’m trying to get a hold of his file that belongs to an agency, but no luck yet.

Yana reminded me of baby Abegayle, Darren reminds me of Darren which is a little weird.

Here’s my husband my Darren. The dark hair, and his mouth too sort of an upside down smile with eyes that look like the mind is far off somewhere meditating on something yet to come out in words. Although once he starts sharing himself, there’s no going back. I really don’t know how else to put that! Sometimes I really do find myself smiling how excited my husband is over the things that he has to say.
Is this little boy in Eastern Europe the same way? I would love to find out.

Here’s to Darren, the orphan from Eastern Europe who so despirately needs a home and a family. Perhaps he’ll get to spend summers on an uncles farm and become a nurse at 38 like my Darren did.

If you know someone who has the means and heart for adoption, spread the word about this guy. I’m going to pray for him, and just hope to see him on the My Family Found Me page where I’ve been blessed to see the other orphans from Eastern Europe that I have poured by heart out for. God sees these little people and attends to their needs!
