Peter left a beautiful card for me to find by the coffee pot this morning, with a lovely dark chocolate Godiva candy bar. My favorite!!
Today I'll make heart shaped cakes for the kids and get them what they really want ... CANDY!
But across the ocean sits a little girl all alone today. Like every other day. And she wants something too.
What does she really want?
|Carina, born, April 2008|
Her picture is so forlorn … I hope we can find her a family to make her smile! She is almost 4 now and is facing imminent transfer to the institution. PLEASE do not let this happen to her!!
SINGLE MOMS WELCOME!
$3754.45 is available towards the cost of my adoption!caption
All she asks, not only today, but EVERYDAY of her life is : BE MINE... please BE my mother, BE my family, BE someone who won't turn away! Be a presence in my life, BE kind to me, BE patient with me, BE MINE, I want to go home!!!! BE IN LOVE WITH ME
My heart breaks as I write this. Because I do love her, I would love to BE HERS. I would love her to BE MINE.
But God has other plans for both of us. I cannot BE Carina's mama , but I can BE her voice.
Carina's mama is out there somewhere . Until she finds her, I will love her and speak for her and defend her, as much as I can.
Today, I ask one simple thing from everyone who reads this, please just say, "Jesus, please find Carina's mama, soon" No donation, no sharing (unless you really want to) just please pause for one second today, and let that second BElong to Carina.
And when you're loving on your children today, remember this sweet little one with such sadness in her eyes. And remember it's ok to let your heart break, that's when you can accomplish all the things God is calling you to do.
And to address the title of this post. It is not a Valentine's day post, it is a Teamwork Tuesday post. Every Tuesday,Reece's Rainbow Warriors post about a child waiting for their Forever Family.
