Would You?

Posted on

Christmas time has come and gone once more… During the mad rush of shopping and preparing and attending holiday gatherings, did you stop to think about what the holidays really mean?  This season is so full of want want want, but what about give give give?  Isn’t it truly about the giving nature of the season, when we pause to give thanks to God for giving up his only son Jesus, who died on the cross to save us sinners?  All so that we could have eternal life.  Now, even if you aren’t a believer, this holiday season should still represent giving and sharing, right?

After seeing the truly horrific and glum existence of many of the orphans in the world, would you consider helping a family bring home one of them?  What a gift adoption is and how blessed both parent and child can be by it.  To show a child who has spent their entire existence in a laying room, never ever being held, cries ignored, diapers soiled far too long,  often drugged, or abused, or just…  not loved.  Would you help give a child like that a family of their own?  Would you?

If all it took was one day where you didn’t go to Starbucks but instead donated that $4 to a family’s adoption fund?  Would you?

Let me repeat that, ONE DAY, $4!  That is so piddly isn’t it?  We spend that without batting an eye twenty times over at Target on junk we don’t need right?

So, would you?

I happen to know of a need that is pretty huge right now.   I have some friends who are trying to make an orphan in this world, an orphan no longer.  I have personally met each of these families and there is no better place for an orphan to end up, wonderful people.   But the cost of adoption can be upwards of $25,000 , yes I did just say that.   So before you decide whether or not you want to donate, share, or pray, please check out each one of these sweet families and what they are fighting for.

  1. $4! Just $4 to help save a life!!

    Pity these adopting families do not actually want to adopt badly enough to EARN or SAVE their hard-earned money to do so. Nope. They’re only willing to adopt with other people’s money!

    • Hi Dee.
      To comment on your snide remark, yes, all of these families put every dime they have worked hard for, towards their adoption costs. I do mean every dime too, I’ve seen change jars in their homes reserved expressly for these costs. The fact is, some people see a need that is greater than what they can individually satisfy. But once we help them satisfy that initial need (cost to adopt), adoptive parents choose to sacrifice the rest of their lives to support and love a child, at no cost to you. The same argument you make could be lobbed at any charity out there. Are you against any and all charities as well? If you do not support adoption or the families attempting to do so, my blog is probably the wrong place for you to catch up on your reading. Thank you for your opinion however I do hope your feelings change. There is so much hate in the world already, and to choose negative feelings towards those trying their darnedest to do something good, is not good for anyone.
