Helping as best we can, Can you PLEASE help Mercy House?
Some days the human me asks "Why are you doing this?" Of course I know why we are doing this, we are doing this because we can't turn our backs. We can't not love. We see extreme need. It breaks our hearts. We just can't turn our backs. This is a fallen world no matter where we live. And if we are extremely blessed- God sends us. And that is our JOY to serve Him. Only by His Grace do we do this. We are not special.
His parent's parental rights will be removed soon. He will no longer have supervised visitation. He will be left to grow up "In Care". He is fortunate that here we are a family. There's a Mom and Dad here, even if we can't be his mom and dad, we can still love and nurture him. He is blessed by the other children here who love him unconditionally, even when he swears at them, or hits and kicks.
Most Care Providers for his level of needs are absolutely not families. They are sterile facilities. Is it too much to ask a family to take in a child like Mercy or CC or G? There is no right or wrong answer. All I know is Lord Willing we are here. And the County can't find very many people like us willing to do this.
Because there is no other "place" for him as a 7 year old child, chances are good we can continue to have him here in what we think is most appropriate.
Our hearts are hurting for all of his losses and how he has no say or control over what happens to him.
I was going to put his Birthday party pictures up but I see Isaiah didn't load them! And I don't know how yet! LOL!
I promised a good while back that I would help a family that is doing something in the Philippines that I think is so worth supporting. I was very excited to spread the word about them. Unfortunately I became quite ill and that has really set me back. satan never rests. I'm slowly catching up now! :o) Catching up at 59 is more challenging, in fact catching up each year is more challenging! Lord Willing I won't be stopped!
I tried to snag a few pictures, pictures that completely broke my heart, but wasn't able to. I did snag the map! :o)
Nikki's beautiful blog, where I met here a few? years ago, maybe 4??!! years back while adopting our boys
The photo at the top of her blog could be my G here in America.......lost and who will help.
And this is Mercy House, their Mission~
I have truly been so inspired by them.
They moved from the comforts of their home to go into the battle field. They walk the walk. They follow where God leads.
Best of all they give God the Glory. They are very humble people.
PLEASE consider sending them a donation. Donations are tax deductable. They spread God's LOVE in conditions that make it so very hard. PLEASE help them help these beautiful children.
And PLEASE!! You absolutely MUST PRAY for them, the children, their work!
Thank You for visiting! We never take your friendship for granted!
