So yesterday I posted that I was going on a break. It didn't last long, I know. In the past 24 hours some things have been reviled to me. My heart is breaking.
I was on the Reece's Rainbow site and fell in love with this sweet girl.
Meet Maeve. She will he a year old on January 6th. Her sweet little face melted my heart. I'm in love and at the same time I am sick. Sickened to think that her first birthday will be spent in an orphanage, with no family or friends to spoil her with love, no cake and ice cream, no hugs or kisses, no one will sing her Happy Birthday, for her it will be just another day. What will we be doing on January 6th? Most likely recovering from a Christmas full of delicious food and an overabundance of new things. Perhaps recovering from a New Years Eve party full of memories surrounded by the ones you love. But Maeve will just be, laying in a crib completely unaware of a life outside the walls of the orphanage. This crushes my heart. It's not fair. I feel God gently tugging on my heart, asking me to do more than just hurt for these children. Im committing to pray over each of the waiting children on the Reece's Rainbow site each week. Im praying that God opens doors, moves mountains and creates a group of people in my life that will join us in doing more. Im praying families will come forward, to help raise awareness, money and yes, adopt. These children were made in Christs PERFECT image, they are here on this Earth for a reason and they deserve a chance. Im praying for BIG things to happen, will you join me? Will you pray daily for these children? Will you work on bringing awarness? Will you give up your life so that others have life? It's so worth it and it's rewards reach far beyond the physical ones here on Earth. God us me, God use us!!
This blog was started to keep friends and family up to date on our journey to become Foster Parents. We never knew that amazing journey God would take us on. We were willing to follow God with our eyes closed and our hearts open. He blessed us with our son Malachi. Just recently we were blessed with another little boy, Elijah. This is our life, the good, the bad and the ugly.
