.. is a day of prayer. My heart is heavy today, for many reasons. I have so many posts swirling around in my head but I can't catch all the thoughts and feelings to get hem together in one place long enough to write them down.

They are random thoughts. Thoughts about all the children waiting. The ones denied a home. The ones who are dying as they wait. The families trying to get to their children before they are transferred. The families trying to get to their children who have already been transferred. 

Thoughts about why some bend over backwards to help and why some criticize those for helping.

My fears and doubts are showing themselves today. Tears fall easily today. 

Sunday is a day of prayer. Please pray today for the children, the orphans . Yes, the ones on the other side of the world. The ones that have no one. The ones most people won't and don't and refuse to connect with because they are a problem for someone else to deal with. 

Who is that someone else???

Sending you love today across the miles sweet friend. wishing I could do more for you, for them. I am trying.Really I am.

Last night I fell asleep thinking about what I could do on a local level. On my church level.Where we are called to feed the hungry. Clothe the naked and care for our widows and orphans. We have a number of people, actually for our size community, a larger sect of people with children with Down syndrome or in an older population, people who had siblings with Down syndrome. I am certain the vast majority have no idea RR exists. That these children exist. I need to tell them. I need to show them. How, I am not sure but I have ideas and hopefully I can reach a few who will become the "someone else"

Love you and continue to be inspired by that heart of yours.

Praying right along side you! These children are never far from my thoughts. I still see all the faces from Dariya's groupa each night when I lay down to bed. Keep speaking, keep shouting, keep praying. People are hearing, hearts are changing, look at how many have been rescued and how many others are on the MFFM page. Without advocates like you those kids wouldn't be there...
Love you my friend.
