Love, commitment, patience, prayer - and time - can make a huge difference!
Here is sweet Sophia at the airport for her homecoming in March 2011.
|2012 with "Baby"|
Yes, she has her own 'baby wrap' now. Her little baby doll has seen a lot of mileage - she belonged to Cynthia when she was a toddler. I asked Cynthia what she was going to call her baby. "Baby" was her answer. "Yes" I said, "but what is her name?" She looked at me like I was a little dense and said, firmly, "Baby". Baby was loved by Cynthia, kept by me, and presented to Mikayla who loved her and then passed her on to Naomi. Naomi loved her and has now passed her on to Sophia, who, as you can see, is having a wonderful time loving Baby. Quite a change!
Would you like to make this kind of difference in a child's life?
- Explore the option of adoption. You might be surprised - there are options for adopting children of all ages, nationalities, and with costs varying from very large to very small.
- Investigate the option of fostering children. There are many reasons that a child, either temporarily or permanently, is without a home and/or parents. Check with your local agencies to learn more about Foster Care and Foster Adoptions.
- Skip an expensive latte or two, and you have enough to give a donation to help an organization who puts hands and feet on the ground where it is most needed. Make your lattes at home, and you will have enough to sponsor a child through Compassion International or World Vision.
