Let me introduce you to....

Let me introduce you to...






 This is Elizabeth C. She is 7 and has Down Syndrome. That is why she is an orphan. She is smart and beautiful and she loves to play with dolls and be a mommy to them. Even though she does not have a mommy of her own.














 This is Tara and she is 8 and has downs too. She is a dancer and loves to be on the move and give and receive hugs.  She has no future in her birth country and she does not know she will never have a family there...











 This is Dillion he is 5 and he has HIV... he waiting for a family and he still has hope. He is beautiful and deserves to be loved and have a beautiful life...













 This is Noah he is about 4 years old and has cp.  He just wants to be held and loved on...














 This is Lori she is 5. She was born with a hernia and cp
but she has had surgery on her hernia now and she is walking with help now. Soon she will be transferred to a mental institution because she is 5 years old and handicapped...  She is a gentle, beautiful child. She will not live long in this institution.


      These children did nothing wrong by being born.  They are not any different then any child any where.  They are  like the ones in your own home...   Loving an orphan child feels just like loving a child born to you.   Now that you know these children....  what will you do?



Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms.
But once you do, everything changes."

I popped in here from the Adoption Story Blog Hop and you touched my heart. My heart aches for these little ones. We have seven (four adopted blessings) and recently God's been touching my heart for the older special needs children. Beautiful post and so true...again, my heart aches.
