Angel Tree 2009
So many of you may be reading this adoption blog and thinking to yourself, "That's great that THEY are adopting, but I can't." Well, you may not be able to adopt (or you may not THINK you are able to adopt...I'm going to blog about that tomorrow so come back to read about it), but you CAN help orphans and participate in orphan care. God has COMMANDED us to care for orphans and widows (James 1:27). So before you think, "there's nothing I can do," please click on the Christmas Ornament in the left sidebar. After you read about the Angel Tree Project, PRAY about donating to one of the angels listed on the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree. The pictures won't be up until NOVEMBER 1, so that gives you the rest of the month to PRAY about how much God wants you to give. Any amount would be a huge step toward helping these children find forever families! The money goes to their grant funds. 100% of your donation will go toward the child's adoption. It is very expensive to save a child's life through adoption. So a child with a larger grant fund is often more attractive to potential adoptive parents, simply because it makes adoption a reality for them. So once again, please be a part of orphan care and donate to these children. I am a prayer warrior for Victoria and would love to see her have a HUGE grant and adoptive family as a result of the Angel Tree project! But if God puts another child on your heart, then by all means donate to them! All of these precious children need homes and your money, no matter how little or how much, could make it possible for them to find their forever family!!! I will be reminding you all again on November 1 that the Angel Tree is up, but until then, I want to strongly encourage you to PRAY about if God is calling you to be a part of the adoption of one of these sweet angels.
