Well I Did It....

well i did it; i finally went over to reece's rainbow and looked at those precious babies and children who need adopting. oh my. i'm in tears as i write. they are so precious; it is so sad that they are sitting there needing forever families. they are beautiful children who need to be loved and cuddled and nurtured.

i know that there are plenty of babies and children in our country who need forever families as well, but these children will not be saved in their own country. they do not get the medical care that we are blessed with. these children, many with down syndrome, do not have a future if they are not adopted out of their orphanages. is it you? are you the one that God is calling to be the forever mama or daddy to one of these precious babies? "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" (James 1:27)

i am so thankful for those who have responded to God's call on their lives to adopt these precious children. like hector and jennifer sanchez who are in the ukraine right now finalizing their papers to bring sophia home next week! (www.savingsophia.blogspot.com ... if you want to follow their journey!) and thousands of others in the same process of adopting, or who are struggling with a desire to adopt and no finances to make it happen. if it's not you who can/will adopt, will you support financially those who desire to? contact me if you need to be connected with a family who is raising their support!

"Once our eyes are opened, we can not pretend we do not know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." (Proverbs 24:12)

  1. It is amazing and humbling isn't it? Even if you can't adopt, each one of "the least of these" needs praying for. Reese's Rainbow has a Prayer Warrior ministry that I believe is every bit as important for the adoptions to occur. Since the battle is not with flesh and blood...and it is so evident as the families start the process who the fight is with! One way each of us can help (besides adopting or money, of course!!!) is to become a Prayer Warrior for a little one and advocate on their behalf DAILY to God for their protection and for their forever family! It is pretty wonderful to go to the page and see how very many children will NOT be institutionalized because of this ministry! :) Love this post...:)
