Look what I found under the tree

One year ago, Jason came home and spent hours on the computer specifically on the Reece's Rainbow website.  We had donated and prayed for these children but, after looking through the children's faces he knew God was calling us to adopt.  It was then that we began praying for which child that God was leading us to bring home.

After decorating the tree on Thanksgiving my sweet little orphan no more posed for some photos.  I am amazed and have been so blessed by the journey God has led us on this past year and now to have our girl home for almost 6 months is an amazing feeling.  God so knew she would fit in perfectly.

I was looking over the faces on the Reece's Rainbow Angel tree this weekend and Jason asked me why I kept looking at them.  I think he had a little fear in his heart that I was going to beg for another one.

But, right now I think our family is perfect the way God wants it.  However, that doesn't mean that we are to forget what we have seen in Ukraine or to stop donating or advocating for these beautiful children who need to have their forever families.  As I was reading in Hebrews today, God wants us to diligently continue to help others which in turn shows Him love.

As this week is cyber shopping week, I ask you make a real difference in someone's life?   Go over to Reece's Rainbow and make a child's dream come true, donate and help bring them one step closer to finding their forever family.
If you can't figure out which one(s) you want to help choose Charity!  We love her and long to see her home.

Oh Rochelle, my heart is beating triple time! I came to your site through another I follow and could hardly believe your latest post. Last year I found out about RR and we decided to sponsor a child through Angel Tree. One little girl stole my heart right away. We purchased ornaments for all of our extended family members for Christmas and asked them to pray with us about the possibility of adopting. When I read the last 2 lines of your post my heart skipped a beat. I was sure the little girl you were refering to was "our Charity"! I was so excited to see the update on her. My desire is to adopt, but my husband and 3 boys are not sure what our role is supposed to be. Please pray with us as we ask the Lord how He wants us to be involved in the life of this precious child. I would love to know more about her and hear what made you love her so :)

You're family is just perfect. I love seeing her home. So many sweet little ones on RR. It has almost been a year since we first saw Carlene's little picture and can't wait until she gets to experience Christmas with us.

Carlene's soon to be momma :)
