Oh my, my, my. Look at all these little babies. Aren't they adorable? I don't know about you, but I'm in heaven looking at all of their precious, innocent faces. I know what I want for Christmas. Why? Because all of these children are in need of a Mama.
None of them have a loving family to surround them with smiles and giggles.
Instead, they spend their time self soothing themselves to pass the time.
Rocking back and forth.
Because no one rocks them.
They often bang their heads just to feel something because it is better than nothing.
It reaches into my soul and screams out to me--
Do something Christine!
So I blog. I ask that you take a moment and stare back at their picture.
Tell me that you don't feel anything. Tell me that your heart is not stirred. Tell me that you can't afford to give five dollars to increase their chances of being adopted while us Americans will find billions of dollars this Christmas to spend on presents.
I don't think you can. I think you all have a soft spot for children in need-- even if you have never thought about it before.
God first adopted us.
He is our example.
Aren't they all just beautiful? Wonderfully made in God's image. They are waiting for their Mama and Daddy. Their brothers and sisters.
I know that adoption is a big thing. But I also know that it is a huge blessing.
You can be a part of caring for orphans in other ways besides adoption if you are not able to adopt at this time. You can pray for them by name. God hears our prayers. You can make a tax deductible donation to their adoption grant fund to help out with their adoption costs. This is a huge blessing for these kids whose chances of being adopted are greater if there is a grant to help with their adoption expenses.
You can go to Reece's Rainbow to read all about these children and to make a donation.
