I suppose that to some, the answer is no. The cost of adoption is staggering really. I know that many people wonder why we are out here fundraising for this adoption. We made this decision, right? Shouldn't we be able to pay for it? Adoption was not part of our plan. It isn't something we had been saving for, planning on, or even remotely considering. God had other plans. That is really the only explanation I have. Adoption costs roughly $24000. It is too big a mountain for us to climb alone. However, when you compare to the life of a child $24000 is nothing. If you don't believe that children are dieing while they wait to be adopted you are wrong. This is Carrington.
Cute little girl right?
THIS is Carrington underneath her layers of clothing.
She is 3 yrs. old and weights 11 lbs. Her family JUST came home with her last week and rushed her the hospital where she was hours from death. She is from the same country Ember is in. Sadly this is NOT uncommon. I could fill up page after page of horrific pictures of what is going on now with orphans where Ember is. MY daughter. God's children. Carrington is a daughter of my Lord. Ember is also a daughter of my Lord. My Lord, my God is calling on ME, on my family to save Ember from a life of no hope and no possibility. This is likely a life and death decision to Ember.
Is it worth it? Yes, it is worth it. I will beg for money if I have to. We are doing everything in our power to bring her home. We just need a little help is all.
Thank you to everyone who as helped so far. Please know that it isn't taken for granted and that it makes a difference. Every penny, every prayer makes a difference.
