Somewhere far far away...

In a orphanage, far, far away sits Ali. At 5 years old she should be preparing for kindergarten, but there she sits, alone, wondering if she will ever have a mom and dad. This is her sweet face.

"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly: defend the rights of the poor and needy." Proverbs 31:8-9

Ali was born with a cleft lip (has been repaired) and she is HIV+, she will die in an institution if not adopted. Here is where we come in. I have special place in my heart for this sweet girl in piggy tails. I have committed to pray daily for her and to help raise $5,000 to her adoption fund. Could you join with me in prayer? Could you donate so that the financial burden of adoption could be eased for her future family?

"Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf, is welcoming me." Matthew 18:5

Please visit this page and donate directly to her adoption fund. Right now, there is $15 in it. I am praying to see $500 in it by the end of the month!! 

"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you." James 1:27

Her clock is ticking, her time left in a orphanage is limited. Tonight when you tuck your children into bed, remember this face: 

Somewhere far far away, Ali goes to be tonight waiting for a mom and dad to kiss her good night!

She is a cutie! Praying for her and all those in orphanages across the oceans.
