I hope you have Kleenex near by for this post.
A year ago in June, a 16 year old boy was brought home from an awful orphanage in Bulgaria.
His name is Tommy.
(all pictures are from The Blessing of Verity blog)
He is also known as the boy with the million dollar smile.
He was loved for the first time in 16 years.
Now he will be loved for eternity in heaven with Jesus.
Yesterday Tommy died in a tragic drowning accident.
He can now RUN and JUMP and TALK.
Just like Adam whom is also in Heaven and from the same orphanage as Tommy.
Not only will he be with Adam but also all the other kids who were in their orphanage.
They can do things typical kids take for granted for the first time in their lives.
Yesterday Tommy woke up with his family, this morning he was with Jesus.
I have no doubts that he will one day see his family again.
And when he does I am sure he will RUN into their arms.
We do not know why Jesus only let Tommy be here for a short time.
We probably won't until we are with Him in heaven.
He came so far in the year that he was with the Musser family.
Tommy, even though I never met you, you will always hold a special place in my heart. I cannot wait to meet you in heaven sweet boy.
Please join me to pray for the Musser family as they are grieving the loss of their beloved son and brother.
If you feel led to donate to help them provide the money for the funeral cost you can do so here:
In just one day over $2000 dollars has been raised for Tommy.
God's people are good.
Keep them in your prayers please.
Tommy, you will be missed immensely.
