I love how God is in all the tiniest of details.
Here is a picture taken a few days before Dariya's gotcha day.
See those kids in the background?
These aren't families out for an afternoon stroll to the park. These are kids from the other groupas that were outside that day.
Orphans. Stranded. Alone. Forgotten.
We celebrate but, I can never forget. I can never wipe those images of all those children out of my memories. I still see their sweet faces when I close my eyes. I still fear for their lives.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. ~Proverbs 31:8-9Defend the cause of orphans. ~ Isaiah 1:17
As we celebrate today, I ask that you consider the plight of the orphan. God calls each of us to speak up and defend the cause of the orphan.
Maybe it is to donate to one of our friends who are currently going BACK to rescue more orphans. Every dollar counts, even a $5 donation is a blessing to these families.
The first two families were in Ukraine with us adopting via RR when we were adopting Dariya! They are fabulous, God following, homeschooling, adoption loving families. Now they obeying and are returning for more children.
The other two families we dearly love, they both have adopted girls via RR from Russia and are now unable to return to Russia due to the stoppage of American adoptions. But that didn't stop them they continue to hear and obey God's call to rescue orphans and are going to another country (one we know and ♥) to bring home more sweet girls!
Or maybe he is calling you to something different, something more?
I hope you will listen and obey.
These sweet children need your help.
Happy Gotcha Day, Dariya! We love you and honor you by donating to orphans so they can find their forever family.
Leave us a message and let us know how you are helping orphans.
