Eli's Brave Heart

It's officially November, and we are so excited to kick off our National Adoption Month focus with the story of this precious little boy! As I mentioned in our "Five for Friday" post last week, Scarlet Threads has a huge heart for the orphan, and has made it a priority to include orphan care and adoption ministry as a very real part of our daily mission and vision.


This month, we want put our vision into tangible action, and help raise the funds for a precious little boy to have the heart surgery he so desperately needs.

Meet sweet Eli. He's just seven months old, and was born with a severe congenital heart defect. He is cared for at New Day Foster Home, and is just the sweetest, most tiny thing. His perfect, though broken, little heart has sustained him for the first seven months of his life, but New Day is preparing him for the surgery he will receive that will give him a chance at HOPE! It's his very first intervention, and he is very complex, so it will not be an easy case, but we are praying for surgeon's wisdom and for Eli's little body to be strong and fight over hard through the weeks and months to come!
