Just the other day someone very close to me asked, "Jodi why do you want to adopt another child, especially one with special needs? Why don't you just have another one of your own, a normal child?"
This is why!
Reece's Rainbow has an "In Loving Memory" page and sadly Lynette has joined that page. To quote what Reece's Rainbow has to say about these angels "Each of these children inspire each of us, and help us understand the true sense of urgency of our mission. We pray they will watch over this ministry, and guide us through the coming years to save as many others as we can. It doesn't have to be this way…..every penny you give to sponsor a child's adoption grant brings an adoptive family ever closer to bringing that child home, to a loving family, proper medical care, and LIFE."
If there is anything more I can say tonight it is this. Even if you are not able to adopt a child at this time, you truly can change the course of a child's life by helping adoptive families afford the costs of international adoption. Please consider helping our family and sponsoring Susan to help us bring her out of an orphanage and into our home where she belongs!
