A Nightmare I Don't Understand!

Artem.  Serge.  Arina.  Yegor.  Jack.  Nikita.  Sonny. Celine

    

All babes who I have been yelling for, crying over, lifting to the throne. 

All babes who are on Reece's Rainbow.  


    

Some now have families who are still in process to get them.  Some don't have committed families yet..  

What do they have in common?  All these babes of mine and so many more?  

 


700 more listed on Reece's Rainbow!!!

What do they have in common???

They are all from the same country.  Rus*ia.  And all of them right now are caught in a web of craziness that is hard for me to even wrap my brain around.


In fact I haven't even blogged about it because it was beyond belief that it was even happening.

I've been watching and praying for weeks now.  I've been reading and following and wondering.  And I've been in total denial because the enormity of what may take place if Rus*ian adoptions stop is so horrible that I just can't even go there with my mind.


I am not going to try to explain what is happening on this blog because frankly it is truly beyond me.  In a nutshell... our government made their government mad and the means by why which they are getting back is to end all Rus*ian adoptions by Americans. 


So this week a ban against adoptions by Americans has been weaving its way up the ladder.   In the end, President Putin will have the final say. 

That is the whole mess in a few sentences.

You can read more HERE and HERE.

I don't begin to understand why babies are pawns in world affairs. 


Dear Friends,

There are a huge amount of Reece's Rainbow families who are in process. Some have just started and some are just waiting to finish and bring their babies home.  


EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE FAMILIES IS GOING THROUGH MAJOR EMOTIONAL CRISIS AS THEY WATCH AND WAIT AND WORRY OVER THEIR PRECIOUS LITTLE ONES!!

I don't even know how to get my mind around the entire nightmare and I most certainly don't even know what to say to all those who are watching the news in shock and dismay.

So many are my friends and I am just absolutely grieving along with them as we watch all of this play out.

If you want to do something PRACTICAL go read and sign this petition.  I cried as I read it.  It is a beautiful picture of what adoption looks like!  It is also a real look at what mental institutions are like in Ru*sia.  It spells out CLEARLY what happens to the special needs orphans who are NOT ADOPTED.  Please go sign.  

Most importantly - PLEASE PRAY. 


Pray that God will intervene and change hearts and minds.  Pray that reason will prevail.  Pray that the voice of the voiceless will be heard.  Pray because there are thousands of  special needs babes who will be lost in the system. There will be thousands of other children who will spend their entire childhoods locked behind walls only to be discharged at 16 with a few dollars and the clothes on their back.  Please. Pray comfort and peace for the families.  Pray that God will cause their hearts to be still before Him.  That they would have the ability in the midst of the chaos to cling.  

PRAY CHURCH.


THESE BABIES NEED US TO BE ON OUR KNEES BEFORE THE THRONE!!

  

THE FAMILIES NEED US TO LIFT THEM UP.

PRAY CHURCH!!

  3. Thank you so much for writing this! I've been seeing it all over in Russian, but it just didn't seem to be getting out there in English. I was afraid that America didn't know. PRAY please, everyone!

  12. Thank you for posting about this. Sweet Wyatt is still an orphan and will be transferred after his 4th birthday. Adoption is his only hope for survival and happiness.

  13. Putin said yesterday that the ban on adoptions couldn’t take effect immediately because a treaty between Russia and the U.S. regulating the process requires a year’s notice to withdraw.
