Small dear one,
When you were born, it was a dark time for the mother who gave birth to you.
The people around her used their words to paint a sad and dark picture of her life with you in it.
She put you into a dark place, in charge of a woman who did not love the truth.
For seven long years, you were hidden in that place of no love, of darkness and lies.
The place where four year old Marsha…
…are still waiting for their families to claim them!
Please email without delay about adopting Marsha, Payton, or Penny! email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org
You live in a place that made a five year old boy look like a tiny, skinny baby.
Meet Adam, who has endured severe physical, emotional, and medical neglect. He lies in bed all the time with no baba and is suffering from the lack of shunt and cataract surgery. I can’t look at him without tears, and cannot read his file without feeling angry. Please, someone, allow God to move your heart, and email Nina Thompson about adopting this precious boy from Pleven. email@example.com
Little girl, you know all about being hungry, just like Adam does.
Look again, and see just how thin, pale, small, and sad you are in this picture.
Then your Father in Heaven opened the Pleven doors and shone the light in.
The darkness has been slinking away, and now beautiful truth is finding its rightful place.
A wonderfully kind doctor visited you.
There is a new lady in charge of you now. She’s glad the light is shining into Pleven!
“She shared lots of changes…that are going to be great for the children and best of all, she is EXCITED about the [donated, specialized] formula!!! She has completely revamped the “kitchen program”, so the kids are getting better quality food (and learning to eat from spoons, etc), the children with special needs will NOT be isolated anymore and will instead be integrated in with the other children and there is much more accountability in regards to the staff. It sounded like she’s restructuring everything, including mindsets. :)”
I cannot read this without laughter bubbling up inside me! Because it means more than simply policies or words, or simply a fundraiser button on a blog and kind people who give.
It means your life is changing, tiny girl. You are getting better food. You have put on a little weight, and have a healthier color now! You are gaining energy. And smiling. And laughing.
Not long ago, a loving daddy and mommy saw your face. They aren’t scared by your needs. They love you just the way you are! They sent a paper to your country to say,
“We commit to do all it takes to make this special girl our girl.”
Beautiful small one,
“Arise, shine, for your light has come.”
