Has anyone else noticed…

…that Amy Rainey is busily listing auction items over on the Hidden Treasures site?

Bidding for the Christiana’s Chance auction starts just after midnight tonight!  Come on over and join the fun!

Five year old Christiana shows signs of fetal alcohol syndrome.  She has been moved to a better orphanage while she waits for her parents to come and take her HOME~

Share it!

    I will say I do like this page but you ask so many questions on why does God make these Beautiful children this way!! Well I will say why I think he does, cuz he wants us to learn from them cuz they are all smart in there own ways! I have worked with children and adults that are DD and I think that they are such a joy to work with and to be with! And every one that I have had a chance to work with I have learned from them!! 
      I do think that you are doing a great job here on this sight, so keep it up!!

    Melanie, thank you for commenting!

    I totally agree with you about the joy of working with children with developmental delays! The reason I deal with this question so often on our blog is that not everyone has had the experience you’ve had, and see it as a burden rather than as a joy or privilege. They have many misunderstandings about people with disabilities, like I used to have.

    I very much hope to help others understand the JOY side of it, too, from the inside perspective of one parent of children with developmental delays who has fully embraced this life.

    Even among those I know who work with children with special needs all day long every day as a volunteer or as their paid job, they consider it a whole different ballgame to consider actually adopting a child with special needs themselves–taking on the total responsibility for their needs, 24/7, for the rest of their lives.

    Many, many people have asked us questions about this. If parents are going to come forward for the little ones with special needs in Eastern Europe who desperately need them, they will have a lot of questions that I want to help answer for them. And what you wrote just helped with that goal, so thank you!
