Thankful Thursday

Wow, it is already Thursday again. You know I was trying to think of what I could write about this week because there is so much to be thankful for. One thing though that I am very, very thankful for is ministries that are out there that work very hard to find homes for children that are the hidden treasures of this world. Children with special needs are a lot of times very hard to place and thank goodness there are people who understand so much about these hidden treasures that they do whatever they can to help these precious children find homes.

When we found Jaxson we were not looking to adopt. We knew someday maybe 5 years down the road but not then. We weren't ready, didn't have the money, had 2 very small children, wanted to build a house and the list could go on and on. Thank goodness for The Shepherd's Crook ministry I saw Jaxson's face and well you know the rest of the story. If it weren't for this ministry we could have missed out on our treasure (also if we would have looked at his medicals before knowing he was ours we could have missed out on this treasure).

So this Thankful Thursday I am so very thankful for these people than run and volunteer in these ministries. I will post some of them below and just click on them and it will take you to there site. Maybe God has a hidden treasure waiting for YOU.

Until All Have Homes

Rainbow Kids

Reece's Rainbow (by the way I love, love, love this site and really do pray God puts everything in to place that someday we will be the parents to a child with down syndrome) About 90% of these precious, incredible babies get aborted that means the ones left are true miracles. If only people knew how precious these children are. Have you ever looked in the eyes of someone with down syndrome? If so you would know how much God loves these innocent souls.

We are also thankful for ministries like Reece's Rainbow--talk about having a heart for special needs orphans!! It's so encouraging to see others obey God in taking care of orphans.
