Nintendo 3DS XL Giveaway!

Posted on

As most of you know, I like to help families in the adoption process.   That’s fairly clear at this stage in the game right?   Many times families head into adoption process without being funded simply because time is of the essence.  In many cases, the children cannot wait.  Maybe they are at risk for transfer to a larger adult institution – in which case their safety and survival are in grave danger.  Medically fragile kiddos are almost always in that group.  A family may learn of a child who’s literally starving to death or medically fragile and they reach for their running shoes – cause it’s time to run!!!  The Adair’s situation is this – God said go!  So here they are trusting that every effort will bring them their babies.  They are doing everything they can to raise the funds just short of selling the shirts on their backs to get their girls home, but there is A LOT left to be done.

Hello Again

*IMPORTANT UPDATE*
Just days ago, precious tiny Chesca passed away. She fought long and hard but just couldn’t hold on any longer. It was because of Maya’s Hope, an organization dedicated to helping children all over the globe get proper medical care (among many other needs). Chesca got the chance to survive, the chance to live with dignity, and essential medication to help stave off the intense pain she was in. Rest in peace sweet girl.

Please continue to read my original post below.
__________________________

I’ve intrduced you to this lovely little lady once before.
This is Chesca.  She’s 6.

image

She is just a little girl.  Who likes putting her babies to bed.

image

And snuggling up with her favorite friends.

image

But she has cancer.  A rare and aggressive cancer.

image

It began in her arm, but it spread.
She is a little warrior.

image

Checsa lives in a part of the world where poverty is prevalent.  And sights like these are common.

image

image

Receiving care from a hospital is impossible if you can’t prove you can pay.  Her family cannot afford medical care, yet Chesca cannot go without it. Everyday is a struggle for her and she needs medicine.
Chesca’s family relies on Maya’s Hope.

image

She is fighting everyday.

image

In so much pain…

image

But Maya’s Hope is fighting too… Fighting to give her all the help she needs.
Maya’s Hope helps many children and families around the globe.
That’s why they are a part of my fundraiser .  I want to support them as much as possible, for all the Chesca’s out there that Maya helps.

Thank you!

Helping Hope

Posted on

We knew she would be malnourished.  But the reality of the situation is far more dire than imagined. 

My friend and her husband are now meeting their soon to be daughter Hope.  Hope is 7 and has spent her whole life in a crib.   She wears size 9 months in infant clothing. 

The following images give a glimpse of just how teeny tiny this precious girl is. 
Lauren shared a video with me of Hope, words cannot express how desperate her sittuation  is.  

image

The reality is, they need to rush a medical expedite to get her home.  This was unforeseen, which is why I am asking for your help, for the Horton family.  Please go here for more details:   https://heartoftheyoung.org/2015/09/09/in-short/

Thank you!

Maya’s Hope

Posted on

What does Maya’s Hope do for kids around the globe? Well, I’ve shared the stories of Joshua and Chesca.  But now I want you too meet a new little girl that Maya met while in the Philippines recently. 

Meet Jennifer. She is 7 years old.
image

As Maya was out and about, she spotted this sweetheart with her mother and was compelled to go introduce herself and meet Jennifer . She was so moved by her story that she decided on the spot, this kiddo needs to be a Maya’s Hope kid!
Jennifer was a normal 6 year old last year, when suddely her life changed.  She is now completely affected by a huge facial tumor.  As one can guess, her quality of life is no longer very good and she is likely plagued by immense pain.
Not much is known about her condition, but it is abundantly clear she needs medical attention.   Remember, this sweetie was a normal happy kid with no tumor, just a year ago.

Just look at her smiling face…
Jennifer is just a little girl. She likes girly things like play jewelry and pretty sparkles. She likes the same things other little girls her age do, playing and having fun. The hope is that someday she will be able to do all the things she enjoys without other kids teasing her, without pain, without fear.

Consider helping Maya’s Hope and help out a sweet kid, and perhaps a couple of other kiddos too by going here.  Plus, the bonus is that you’ll be entered to win an awesome prize!

Hope

Posted on

Hope is beautiful.

image

Hope has so much potential.

She is 7 years old.

7 years old and just 10 pounds! 

She has the chance become part of a loving family, the Horton’s.

She will be a daughter for the first time.

She will be a sister for the first time.

I’d like to introduce one of Hopes new sisters, Sophia. 

image

Sophia is from the same orphanage that Hope is in. 

You see, when Sophia was adopted by the Horton’s at age 4, she weighed just 10 pounds. 

image

I met this angel shortly after she came home. She fit in an infant car seat and looked like a baby.  This, from years of neglect.

But living with this amazing family, little fragile Sophia became a happy 26 pound 6 year old! 

Tell me that’s not astounding.

Tell me that’s not remarkable.

Tell me Hope hasn’t got the same chance to be a chubby, smiley, happy kid. 

The proof is right in front of your eyes with Sophia’s transformation.  

I know this family, the Horton’s.  They are truly amazing people.  Right now they are trying to expedite Hope’s adoption due to her fragile condition.  It is so much more dire than imagined.  But with that, comes more need, more fees and a totally different timeline.  But despite these unforeseen hardships, they don’t want to let Hope down, they want to go get their daughter.

Please go here to help  any one of three different amazing causes, the Horton’s included, or donate a little to each of them!  Oh, and when you donate, you’ll be entered to win some money and some bling!  

Let’s  band together and do something great today!

Hope and the Horton family thanks you!
