It's Finally Here!!!
Ok, this is totally one of my very favorite times of the year!!! Can you guess why?
Today is the first day of The Angel Tree for Reece's Rainbow. This is a time that brings hope to many, many orphans that have been blessed with that extra special gene. Grant funds will be raised, awareness will be made to many people and best of all lots and lots of families will be created during this time.
Click here and go check out the angel tree and come back and tell me who your top cutie of the year is. Can you guess who I think is the top cutie of the year???
I am a wife to a man sent straight from heaven, a mom to 2 precious biological girls, one amazing little boy born with a limb difference adopted internationally and a soon to be son we are adopting from the foster system. I am passionate about God's call to care for orphans and love advocating for kiddos that need homes. We are also foster parents and are totally being blessed by loving on kiddos for a season. I love talking adoption so don't ever be afraid to ask questions.
Statistics There are more than 143 million orphans worldwide There are more than 800,000 children in America’s foster care system each year. More than 33% of Americans have seriously considered adopting, but no more than 2% have actually adopted. The Holocaust murdered about 11 million people, 6 million of them Jews, From 1973-2002 MORE THAN 42 MILLION abortions occurred in AMERICA alone. In 2001, 159 million people in America identified themselves as Christians, many who consider themselves pro-life, yet 1.5 million babies never saw life, and millions remained orphans worldwide-127,000 adoptions took place, the most common of these 127,000 was step parent adoptions, leaving approximately 142,873,000 kids still needing families
