The Choice

Yesterday I started a Giveaway. 

A Giveaway for 13 children on the Angel Tree who have been on Reece's Rainbow the longest.  The babes who have been passed over again and again. 

Look at my sidebar..... SEE THE HALL OF FAME NAMES OF THOSE WHO GAVE YESTERDAY!!  

21 people donated over 500.00 to the PASSED OVER BABES!!  THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

                                 Yegor                                        Sergei                                     Spencer 
        
                 Yegor's Christmas Warrior                Sergei's Warrior                    Spencer's Warrior- ME!!



I'm going to be honest.  Deciding which kids we should 'pick' for the Giveaway was beyond hard. 

I am LOUSY at choosing because I would just choose them all.  So after I received the e-mail with the Giveaway offer, I e-mailed Michelle at RR and asked her to give me a list of the kids who have been on the Angel Tree the longest.  She sent me her list and after I looked it over, I immediately set out to add MORE kids onto the list.  I had 21 kids on the list within just a short period of time.  Stopping there was agony.  But picking and choosing was also agony.  None of it was sitting right.  There were too many kids.  The goal was to give exposure to those kids who have just not been noticed.  With 21 babes on the list, there were too many kids.  So in the end and after talking to Debby - we decided to let it be a God-list instead of a Julia-list.  I took the list that Michelle gave me and THAT was the list of kids.  Removing kids from the list - MY PICKS - was hard.  Okay - it was agony.  I grieved to take them off.

                         Meredith's Warrior                   

But after I looked at Michelle's list - after I put each child on the blog and linked them - I realized something rather sad and profound.  The vast majority of the kids on the list were babes I HAD NEVER REALLY NOTICED BEFORE.  I had passed them over them too.

Dear Friends - THESE BABES NEED THIS EXPOSURE.... Next year most of the children pictured here will be too old for the Angel Tree.  They not only age out of their baby houses, they age up on Reece's Rainbow.  That means that they will receive even less exposure than they have now.  There are a ton of babes in the older sections on Reece's Rainbow who used to be on the Angel Tree.  They weren't adopted.  They just aged up. 

These PASSED OVER BABES NEED US!!

Please donate and please share and share and share and share...  All of these babes have Christmas Warriors and some of those Warriors have their own Giveaways going....

  1. This is what it's ALL about. I don't have much, but I have something. And I owe everything I have to Him - and these little one's are His babies.

    Everyone knows I'm a sucker for the girlies...I donated to each of the little girls above. And with those four donations - prayers are included!

    I'm also sharing on FB right now!

    God bless you for doing this and sharing Gods heart for the orphan with all of us!

  2. Hi Julie,

    Thank you for today's post. I was very well written and gave a good explanation of why each child was listed. I have gone to A Perfect Lily and supported Robyn (and donated to her Ty fundraiser too since I was over there.) I also posted on my FB page and hope that gets more attention and awareness to these little boys and girls. Thank you again, Heather

  3. Thank you, Julia , for all that you do for His children. I just want to scoop them all up and bring them home with me....we could get three or four in each bed, right? It breaks my heart to see them all. I could not "choose" one child to adopt this time, so I basically let Andrea choose for me (and she chose Andrey). I know that sounds crazy, but I literally could not "pick" one....I pray that all these babies find their mommas and poppas!

  8. Oh, my sweet friend, thank you for being a voice for the unheard. It was a hearbreaking choice, but after praying over each beautiful face, I was called to Danila and Paul and donated. I will continue to pray until each one has a family of their own.

  13. I've also passed a lot of these faces by. Except for Spencer, I didn't recognize any of them until the Angel Tree started. :(

    I just donated for an ornament to Spencer (and Xenia because I can't resist her) as well as donating to my Danila again.
