God is Good!

As I wrote in my first post, I talked about these children with DS and other special needs aging out at 16 yrs old no longer eligible for adoption in their country. Well here are some of the faces of the older children, for the past weeks everyone has been rallying up in prayer and money has been raised in funds to save these children. God heard their crys for help! their pleads of saving them from lifes that no child should have to live. Meet Sam....born with a minor disability malformed fingers on both hands and because of his disability he was sent to an orphanage. All Sam asked for is a family of his own, for someone to listen and care about him, and having a teenager myself  I know they long for that attention approval of a parent to guide them. Hard to imagen how this teenager so athletic and full of life and health has been hidden away because of his minor disability. With time running out for him to find that family of his own in May, Sam's family found him GOD IS GOOD!

Though we may not ever understand why or how in the world these children/teenagers are being kept from their future is heart breaking to know and  this why it's so important to share. This is Tyler.......he is another child who God has heard and rescued before time snuck up on him too born  with Spina Bifida. Tyler is described as a 13 yr old who is artistically talented, friendly and compassionate. Tylers family found him! GOD IS GOOD!

God's perfect timing is always so hard to be patient with. We know that he listens and he knows exactly when he will do the things that are right. Like the boys listed above, it was hard  to know that they were running out of time and they needed  that family now. God chose these boys today to have their family and how I long to know what great plans he has for them. And with the joy of hearing that children are being saved and families are being united my heart still breaks for the many more that are in desperate need of a family  Because there are still homes that need to be found for them before it's too late. Laurel  a 15yr old with Arthrogryposis who has less then 6 months to be adopted, she has been blessed to live in a very good orphanage for those mostly with physical disabilities till now, but still is not a place she need to be she faces transfer to an ADULT MENTAL INSTITUTION soon!

And then there is Bernadette, sweet smiling Bernadette with Down Syndrome  15 yrs and looks like an 8yr old who likes playing with dolls, and with toys and watching cartoons as described in her profile. Her beautiful smile and eager look to take her picture is enough to know that she can do so much with a family and what joy she will bring into a home. She needs a family before November to be adopted at all.

My heart breaks for these girls listed above, but this young man breaks my heart even more. Because his knows his future if not adopted he struggles with facing it, and knows exactly what will happen unless by some miracle he does get adopted or family committs within the next few months.

Duncan will be 16 yrs old this summer 2012. He has CP6 Spastic Diplegia he is small for his age the size of a 13yr old and uses a walker to walk and is independent in mobility. He knows what his outcome will be in life if he is not adopted . Duncan has no mental issues but, because he appears to have CP, he most likely will end up in a MENTAL INSTITUTION. This is so hard to understand and so hard to except, that while we will be planning our summer vacations this summer. Duncan will be sent a way to place with no hope. And while we are buying our back to school clothes this fall and taking our first day back pictures of our own children. Laurel will be going to a place where she will be confined with nothing to see for the rest of her life. And while we  gather around our tables with our families and give Thanks in our nice dress clothes and enjoy or Thanksgiving dinners . Bernadette will be taken away from her dolls, toys and cartoons and into a horrible place where her smile will never been seen again. I pray for these children I pray that this doesn't happen that just like Sam and Tyler they will be rescued in time. I give God all the glory, because he is Good, he does hear our crys, and prayers to help in times of desperate need. God.... my prayer today that hearts be touched that lifes be changed and more people reach out to Laurel, Bernadette, and Duncan. That someone reading this today hear the call to help. Because what they are facing now is the future of the rest of the younger children who keep waiting. Let this day be the day that Laurel, Bernadette, and Duncan find their families forever.
