Family Needed

The orphan crisis weighs heavy on our hearts.
Simple truths go through my mind regularly, like
...if those in the world who claim to be Christian adopted just one child, there would be no need for orphanages.
...and since families who adopt tend to adopt more than one child, the world should not have an orphan crisis.
...God never intended children to live without their biological parents. But "the fall of man" occurred, and we now have to face the consequences, including caring for the orphans.
 
Our family has been so blessed with adding to our family through adoption.  But God didn't stop there.  He has allowed us to partner with the Baobei Foundation which cares for critically ill orphans in China.  We have been able to provide needed medications, visit the babies in the hospital, find prayer partners for each child in Baobei's care, and celebrate as these children join their forever families.  It's one the best parts of our lives!
 
There is one girl in the care of Baobei that is in desperate need of a family.  She is nine years old, which in itself, puts her "at risk" of finding a family.  I'm choosing to advocate for her on this blog, praying that someone will see this and feel called to adopt her, or feel called to pass this information on to someone who will provide her with a loving family.
 
You can find her online in two places:
www.baobeifoundation.org - her name here is Ting
or
www.twentyless.com - here name here is Tina
 
Please feel free to share these links, or to direct others to this post.  Let's find a home for this precious girl!
