The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Ways to live out your conviction

Well as you might have guessed, I've gotten a few e-mails from friends telling me that they embrace the truth of James 1:27 and will accept my challenge to pray this month, but that they know they are not called to adopt. Okay, I realize that some people are never going to adopt, no matter how much I WISH that all Christians would adopt ONE, it's just not ever going to happen (though a girl can pray, right) and people need other ways to live out their conviction to help widows and orphans in their distress. I mean, truly, for me, I know that I need to do this too because another adoption isn't in my future but that doesn't mean that I'm off the hook in this. You can't sit back and rest on what you did yesterday, that's the pesky thing about God, He's always urging us to keep going with our gifts. :) Anyway, I guess that's a long way of saying that people need options on how to help the orphans if they aren't called to adopt one.

So, in light of that, I'm going to try to highlight a few very real and direct ways that you can help an orphan. Today, I want to highlight a mom who has a very definitive plan for bringing her daughter home. Her daughter is in China. Her name is Isabella, and her mom is working hard to emancipate her from her bondage. YOU can be a direct part of caring for this specific orphan by purchasing a bracelet from Daleea or making a donation to her adoption. I bought 6 bracelets from her for gifts and everyone who has one has loved it. And some people have even asked me where they can get one of their own. So... today, you can do something little that will be an investment in the life of a specific child and get a great little something for yourself or someone else too!

OH, how I love your heart and share your passion. How refreshing it is when we find others who are advocating for the precious children who so desperately need our help.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping our daughter to be Orphaned NO More! For being a part of God's plan to bring her home... part of the miracle that Jesus is unfolding before our eyes to bring Isabella home to her family.
May God bless you and God's speed to my beloved daughter.
