Take the Time....


PLEASE DON'T GO QUICKLY THROUGH THIS POST.... TAKE THE TIME TO SEE THE KIDS!!  PLEASE!!

In the Reece's Rainbow world I have made friends with a whole lot of wonderfully crazy people.  

I have one RR friend who keeps dying her hair the different colors of the rainbow in order to raise awareness for the kids over there!!   She will be running in a half marathon next week to raise money for those kids.  Just thinking about running to my mailbox makes me tired... a half marathon???  Go Jane Go!!  She is looking for sponsors and I'm making it easy for her.  All the money raised is going to build a building for the 'least of these' in a remote institute in Aaron's former country.  Let me share this ... If we could do the same thing for the boys at Aaron's institute... we would be acting just as crazy!!  Jane has walked the halls of that mental institute and she has been changed forever.  Her blog is HERE.  Jane takes amazing pictures!  Go read and weep.  The chip-in to sponsor Jane is below.  



I have another RR friend who has steadfastly loved the older kids on RR to the point where she refuses to see any of them left behind.  She has been working like crazy to not let any child who is 6 or older have less than $100 in their grant account.  Oh My Goodness.... just when she gets one child over the 100 dollar wall.... more children are listed and she has to start all over again.  

On the fourth of July she started with 179 children who needed to get 100 dollars in their grant accounts.  Today 131 children still need a boost over by October 31st.  UGH!  Will you help?  Pick one and put them over?  Or drop some money in their grant accounts to move them closer? Every single child on this list is an ORPHAN.  I've highlighted a few of these sweet kids for you!!  There are 131 to pick from!!  BREAK OUR HEARTS LORD.... BREAK OUR HEARTS... 

PLEASE SEE THESE KIDS!!!  TAKE A FEW MINUTES AND SEE THESE KIDS.... LOOK AT THEIR PICTURES... WHISPER PRAYERS FOR THEM.  LOVE THEM FROM AFAR.  

PLEASE!!

  4. Hi Julia,

    I try to read your blog everyday and donate as often as I'm able to the children you shout for. I have a request--it would be so much easier to read your blog if you made the links right clickable. Then your readers could read through the post, right clicking and opening new tabs to go to the websites you link to that we're interested in clicking on without having go to back and forth from your blog to the link you're highlighting. I know, especially on a post like the above, that I'm much more likely to view each link if I can right click than if I can't.

    Thanks!

  5. Thank you for advocating for these sweet children. I have loved Jack (#81) with all of my heart for so long. I ache to adopt him and give him the love he so richly deserves. I'm so happy that he has had someone donate to his account but it saddens me that the grant has been stuck at $50 for so long. Perhaps he has not had folks rally around him, in part, because his condition is so incredibly rare that folks don't feel comfortable enough advocating for him or adopting him. I would love to move forward with adopting him but I fear a lack of fundraising support and risking not being able to move forward without that help from the community. If only there were some movement in his grant account... I know that would encourage us enough to move forward. We have the resources to care for him but on public servants' salaries, the adoption fees are daunting.

  7. Dear Julia,
    It's exciting to see you were on a page so dear to my heart. All the ones marked (L) are the first ones ever listed from the country we adopted from. I knew who they were because I had received a couple of their photos as part of the process when we got our girls in 2011. ZABRINA is our daughter's best friend. Sadly, she has not made new friends here yet due to her cognitive delays. When we picked her up I had no idea the connection she had to Zabrina (we know her real name but I won't use it publicly...it has a Z sound and I will share with anyone privately). As we looked over orphanage photos, our daughter forgot most of the names quickly, except for one. Zabrina's name. She shouts it out loud and gives kisses to the screen. When I looked more carefully, I could see that through years of pictures, the 2 of them were more frequently next to each other than anyone else. We would love it if Zabrina could be adopted to America or (dare we hope) to Ohio, so M could Skype with her in English. Zabrina is still in the babyhouse, and it is reasonably good, as these things go. But she is surely facing transfer. I think she is a tiny bit more delayed than our daughter, but she would do well in a family. She is not the least aggressive and knows self care. I have brought her to the attention of many, but sadly, only $25 has been donated to her by others. We cannot get her a family alone, and I fear that if she does not get to the significant grants page, she will linger like dear Heath. I had been avoiding talking to you about her while Heath still waited, as he is on my heart, but now that he is fully funded... We have tons of photos of her!
    Thank you, Julia, for being on Zabrina's page!
    Sherry
