"Are you a goer or a sender"?

I have a couple of bloggy friends that I love to check in on and read their posts. On one of the blogs, I watched a short utube video today about their adoption journey. There was a clip about older children aging out. I didn't relize how many older children age out, and how quickly it happens. These children will never have a family to love them, hold them, give sweet hugs, sit at the dinner table with a mamma and daddy. Can you just imagine? It's just simply not right. There needs to be more families. Where are their families?

Did you know there are over 140 million orphans in the world?

Every 2.2 seconds another orphan child ages out without a family to belong to.

It simply breaks my heart that there are so many orphans just waiting to find a family. Could you be there family? Would you go? A friend of mine wrote a post on her blog "Are you a goer or a sender"? Please visit her blog at to read it.

And please don't forget about our fundraiser. This is our second fundraiser & we only have 2 contributors so far. We are hoping to raise $2300 for our homestudy and USCIS fees. When you donate, your name is entered into a drawing for the $100 Best Buy gift card.
