We desperately want to encourage you to remember the orphan. It would be so easy for some to go about their day, not even giving them a thought. Many aren’t aware of the horrors that orphans face… some are aware but don’t do their part to act.

Every time we have said, “yes” to adopting, the Lord has always provided everything we’ve needed… from finances to strength, wisdom and guidance.

We are so blown away by His faithfulness! It’s a true testament of God’s hand working on behalf of those who step forward to walk in James 1:27.

I want to encourage any of you who are thinking about adoption to go for it! Begin to believe that God will make a way where sometimes, there seems to be no way!

Ask God to move on behalf of the orphan and provide all you need as you begin to take these precious ones in to your family and make them your own.

If some of you will go to the Reeces Rainbow site, you will read a verse at the top of the page that is such a good reminder of this very thing. It’s found in Proverbs 24:12 and it says: Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know about what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act.

I encourage those of you who can’t adopt, to help a family who is able to adopt, by supporting them financially. Those of you who have been thinking of adopting, please contact and talk to them. They would be glad to help you with any questions you might have.

Reeces Rainbow focuses on special need’s children, and although we would encourage you to explore this as an option, they can also direct you to children without special needs.

You would be sowing into the life of a child, in other words, doing your part to do James 1:27 (true religion that God our Father accepts is to care for the orphan and the widow.)

We can all make a difference if we all work together! Thank you!


While we were eating…

… they were hungry

While we were playing…

… they were restrained

While we were tucking our kids into bed…

… they were alone

While we turned up the heat…

… they laid in the icy cold

While we wrapped our children in blanket sleepers…

… they laid in their own excrement

While we sang songs and listened to music…

… they listened to the screams and cries of those around them

While we rocked our babies…

… they silently rocked themselves

While we hugged our kids…

… they scratched at their own faces and pulled their own hair for stimulation

While we cried over scraped knees…

… they moaned in their loneliness

While we brushed our daughters’ beautiful hair…

… they had their heads shaven to stave off the lice

While we fought off the flu with love and nourishment…

… they got the flu and went Home.

No longer suffering… but so many more still are.

In memory of those that have never felt the love of a family, but have passed away alone.
