NO ONE SAYS IT QUITE LIKE HER.
Glimmer of Hope for 300
We thought he was in the car. We thought he was in the backseat quietly playing with his DS. We pulled out of the church parking lot believing that we had all of our family inside. We were oblivious. We were carefree. We didn't realize we had left eight year old Elijah behind.
It wasn't until we opened the doors at the store that we realized our mistake.
At the same time our cell phone rang. Where are you?
I will never forget the shock and shame and terror I felt at the reality that I had left my son behind.
He was only 5 miles away. He was safe with members of the church. He was not hurt. I knew exactly where he was. Yet I was devastated. I left my child behind. He has never let me forget it. I will never forget it.
They crossed the ocean.
They met their children. They came home without them because that's how adoption worked in R.
You meet your child. You spend a week playing with them. You spend a week breaking through to their hearts. You spend a week giving them their first taste of what love feels like. You spend a week teaching them what kisses and hugs feel like. You spend a week whispering promises in their ear. You spend a week holding and kissing them until that the very last second when you have to drag yourself away. Many of them screaming and crying and reaching out. Begging you not to leave.
You leave them with promises that you will be back. You will be back. They watch you leave with those whispered promises. You will be back.
300 have been left behind.
The promises whispered lay unfulfilled at their feet.
They do not understand.
Where did Love Go? When is it coming back??
Trust me my friends....
Their Mamas and Papas have NOT given up.
They left their babes behind.
They will never give up.
The families of those 300 are still praying and crying and doing everything in their power to bring their babes home!
Their glimmer of hope is HERE.
I wish I had time to explain everything but time is short and the need is great.
There is a film that has been made that has the potential to be a POWERFUL VOICE for these families. The film is finished but marketing it to those who desperately need to see it is costly. As of right now - the families have less than 5 hours to cover what is needed to keep this project going.
They are NOT taking money right now. They are only asking for pledges from people.
Five hours are left for pledging. A considerable amount of pledging.
Please CLICK HERE for more information and please CLICK HERE to make a pledge. No amount is too small!!
They left behind their babes.
This is their glimmer of hope.
PLEASE GO MAKE A PLEDGE!!
