|The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach
and hundreds of starfish?
You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…”
I made a difference for that one.”
Determined to make a difference for a couple more ‘starfish’, we are travelling to
adopt 2 little boys with Down syndrome. Screech and Henry are 5 year old boys
living in orphanages in Eastern Europe. Henry is very malnourished and needs a
loving family VERY soon. We heard of Screech and decided we could not come
home without him too. We hope to have the boys home with us in the fall of 2011.
Please join us on our Journey--- follow our blogs and enjoy the boys along with us!

The surf is up and the tide is going out.
I WILL make difference for THESE TWO.”
