I come to you today with an urgent need. Today, I come to you on behalf of three very special children, who at this very moment, are on the other side of the world–waiting. How does one go about waiting for a family? I wait for my mom to finish trying on clothes so we can go to lunch. I wait for a friend in the coffee shop. But I’ve never had to wait to be loved. These siblings, a girl, 8 years old, and two boys, 7 and 11, are waiting for love. That is something most of you reading this blog post will never have to do, but we CAN stand in the gap for those who are waiting.
In Proverbs 31:8-9, The Lord speaks to this very issue, saying:
“Speak out on behalf of the voiceless, and for the rights of all who are vulnerable.Speak out in order to judge with righteousness and to defend the needy and the poor.”
So here I am, thankful that 23 years ago, someone spoke up for me, and as a measure of my thankfulness, I’m speaking up for these kiddos.
From the information Open Door has received, these children are said to be very healthy and obedient. The eldest boy loves soccer and is in 4th grade. The middle child, the girl, is a sweet 8 year old who is described as a very good student and friend. The youngest boy is a smart child who is said to be well adjusted.
At this time we are not permitted to release pictures of the children over social media, but if you express interest, I can give you a picture, and my oh my, they are beautiful. You can also find out where they are from and more information about them.
You may not feel called to adopt. We can discuss that later 😉 (hahaha) but you are called to SPEAK UP. So share this post. Social Media is powerful.
You may not think you are ready to take on three children from an unknown place, but someone out there is–I promise you that. SPEAK UP. Share this. Be a vehicle.
But maybe, maybe you do feel called to adopt. You’ve been praying about the timing, the country, and the number of children. Maybe you’ve been asking God for a sign that lets you know it’s time to move forward. Maybe this is it! Maybe you’ve had adoptions fall through and you made a deal with God: “You’re going to have to literally drop them in our lap if you want us to go through with adoption again.” Maybe this is the drop.
I have this crazy belief that all children deserve the love of a father and mother, and I will stop at nothing to speak up for those that are pent up in dusty orphanages, dependent on overworked, underpaid caregivers to meet their deepest desire for love and connection. I want these children to be given every opportunity to grow and thrive and come to know the love of a Father so great He has this girl across the world sitting at a desk writing a blog post about children she will probably never meet because she is so compelled by His love that she must find these children a family.
So, your job is to share this. Your job is to pray. And for one of you families out there, your job is to bring these kids home.
