I’m reposting this from Crazy Life of the Wilk’s Family. Very sad reality for so many children. Their reality. Just because we don’t “see” the orphan most definitely does not mean that they are not suffering.
You have to choose to see…
“This is a hard post for me to write, but its a post that must be written.
Today an orphan died in China.
My heart is heavy again today. I will never be able to hear of an
orphan dying without being overcome by sadness. This isn’t the first
thal child who has died…
I’ve often been asked “Why not adopt from foster care?” I’ve been
told that there are so many kids here in the US and we should “take care
of our own” before we help the world. I’m not going to argue these
questions or points at all.
I simply believe that children matter. ALL children matter. ALL
children deserve to have the love of a family. Someone to kiss their
boo boos. Someone to hug them and tell them they can do anything. ALL
children deserve to have food on the table. ALL children should have
the opportunity to get an education. ALL children deserve to get the
medical care they need to get better.
Today an orphan died in Yulin, Guangxi, China.
And so did others… In China. In Russia. In Ukraine. In Ethiopia.
In India. In Uganda. In Honduras. In so many orphanages around the
world these precious children, who have already experienced unimaginable
loss, continue the fight of their lives.
An estimated 143 million orphans can be found in countries worldwide.
I believe that all of us have a responsibility to these children. God calls ALL of us to help.
Pray for ONE.
If you need a picture, a story, and a name. I know plenty of them.
Make one child your priority to pray for every day while they wait for a
forever family to take over those prayers.
Amazing agencies are doing amazing work in countries worldwide. They
are making a difference everyday in the lives of children throughout the
world. I would be happy to point you in the direction of some that I
know. (Project Hopeful, Morning Star, New Day Foster Home, Lifesong for Orphans, Child’s Hope Int’l, SOS Ministries, Reece’s Rainbow, Cambodia Baptist Orphanage)
(I, Beka, personally have supported or currently support these linked
ministries, very trusted sources! Instead of giving your donations to
organizations here in America that have revenues in the billions, why
not give to orphans in absolute desperate poverty? Make your money
count! The rich don’t need your money, the poor does).
If you are one of those who has a heart for America’s children, I
encourage you to reach out to your local social services and find out
what it takes to become a foster parent.
At this moment, I know of at least twenty families who felt God’s call
to adopt a child, even though they didn’t have enough in their bank
accounts to cover an adoption, and took that step out to help care for
ONE. I’d be happy to show you families that you could support. (I
really like to use Reece’s Rainbow for this).
Adopt ONE. If you think you might be willing to bring a precious orphan into their forever, please email me. MEPSCOASTIE@YAHOO.COM. I will be happy to lead you to the agency and program that’s right for you.
I pray that this message reaches you all. I pray that a precious
little boy’s death will be the catalyst for something good to happen.
Today an orphan died in China, but I pray with all my heart that others
won’t have to.”
