Can You Give A Little to Help a Lot?

"pure and genuine religion in the sight of God and Father is this; to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world."  james 1:27
my dear friend patti is at it again!   she's trying to find a family for precious albina, an orphan who has Down syndrome who lives in an orphanage in eastern europe!   i thank God for patti's tireless efforts to advocate and raise funds for these precious children!   an anonymous family has committed to match fundraising efforts for albina up to $5000....they are almost at that goal!   and then perhaps a family will feel that they have the ability to commit to albina and raise the remaining funds to adopt her!   perhaps you are that family?   perhaps you can give? please pray specifically for this beautiful girl, that her forever family will come forward quickly to bring her home!   visit patti's blog a perfect lily to read all about albina and the giveaway (a canon rebel digital slr camera) that is raising funds for her!

and please check out my friend christie's blog for the giveaway to bring her precious alexander home!   there are some great prizes in that giveaway, but the greatest prize of all is knowing that you're helping bring alexander home to his mommy, daddy and brothers who he doesn't even know are waiting for him!   he is so cute, he looks like such a happy little fellow!   alexander has already been transferred to an adult institution.  please pray specifically that he is being well cared for, that God will give him a special caregiver who loves and protects him.  pray that he has food and is healthy.  pray that his mommy and daddy can go get him soon...... i can't wait for him to be welcomed home!   (and for them to visit northwest florida so i can meet all of them in real life!)

there are so many families who have the heart to adopt, it's a shame that adoption is such an expensive endeavor.   please give as you can.....and above all else pray!
