Who has seen the movie Nemo?
Remember the fish who when they all got together they were able to make a giant fish and ward off the enemy?
When we first thought of adopting, we were worried, until we saw THIS video...
So we thought to ourselves, sure we want to adopt. We know there is suffering. We have seen others go rescue their children and their children, some 4 years old, coming home weighing only 11 lbs, even a 9 year old child who was under 15lbs, can you imagine? I have seen CATS that weigh that much! So then we thought to ourselves, ok, so we have the desire, but can we actually do it? Can we go out and bring them home? What is stopping us? I will tell you. It was the money. We had the home, we had the room, we had the love, and we even had the money to raise them. The only problem at all, was the money to GET THEM HOME!
And then we saw this...
So what was our objection when you took everything else away? It was money, only the money we needed to go get our sweet little ones. God was pointing the way, with each and every step, and he was asking us to follow in faith. Step aside and stop worrying and just believe in him. Follow his word, follow his lead, and rescue these children, HIS children.
Maybe you wonder, why us? Why do we not let someone else do it. I will tell you, if everyone else was doing it, there would not be orphans. The fact is that some people can not adopt, and others do not want to, and the list goes on, but the reason why does not matter in the big picture. What matters is that these children are waiting. They are waiting for a home. They are waiting for someone to rescue them. They are waiting... some of these children wait for years. They wait and wait. One woman recently went over to be with her beautiful child and because this sweet little one has down syndrome this child was turned down by others looking to adopt. Not once. Not twice, but 500 TIMES! HOW??
We can NOT just sit there and wait for others to do it. If you can adopt then DO, if you can not then please help someone who is trying. Never let the cost of going to rescue them stand in your way.
I am so happy to say that YOU are amazing! This has been an amazing month! Since Feb 11th we have gone from $2965 in the FSP all the way to $3900 in the FSP!! That is almost $1000!!
This just goes to show that we CAN do this! Thank you SO much to EVERYONE who has donated, shared, and prayed!! Your love is amazing!
