“Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t 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
Dear Readers….my dear, wonderful 750+ readers:
I want to share something with you. Orphans. We all know there are orphans in the world. There are orphans here in the US, in Africa, in Eastern Europe, in East Asia….everywhere. Depending on what search engine you use, you get the numbers of 143,000,000 or 163,000,000 or 210,000,000 orphans worldwide. In reality, we’ll never have an exact count, but the number is HUGE! Really huge. There are many people who are so overwhelmed by these numbers that they hide behind them. “If I help one, it makes no difference at all….what is one in a sea of 100,000?” Becoming aware of the need is the first step into the ocean.
I want to introduce you to a special little girl, Priscilla. She is waiting for a Mommy and Daddy to find her. Do you have room in your heart and in your home? Think of how well she could do with a lot of extra love and some medical care to get her healthy. Do you know a family who is hoping to adopt? Would you share this sweet girl with them? Click on Priscilla’s picture to get more information about her. Don’t you love that smile and that cute button nose?!!
Lets talk about the cost of adoption. We all know there are some BIG numbers there too. Foster to adopt can be little to no cost, traditional domestic adoption anywhere from $5,000 to $40,000, and international adoption can be up to $50,000, all dependent on so many factors. These numbers can make many people and families shudder and say “I just don’t have that…..we cant adopt”.
What about the families who do step up? What about the families that say “I want to spread the love of God and I want to bring one of these precious children home.” They need help raising the funds. God will provide, and lucky for us….we can be God’s feet by giving! This is an exciting way to help. Check out some of these families who are bringing their children home. Would you help them? Would you be part of their miracle? Would you support them? *Click on the links below the pictures to learn more about these kids and the families they are part of*
