Sad Story

Sad Story

See this little boy?


I don't know his name...

I know only a little of his story from two families who caught glimpses of his life...

Two families...

One adopting Harlene


The other adopting Blake


Harlene's family was waiting for friends when they saw two ladies bring this sweet boy and his little sister to the orphanage...


There were piles of paperwork...

The Doctor came in and took the little boy inside...

He came back and took little sister inside...

He came back with the children's clothes...

The two ladies took the clothes and left the orphanage...

There were no tears or emotion...

Probably the ladies were social workers...

Probably they were not family of the children...

But the poor little children...

Dumped off in a strange place with no hugs and kisses...

Some time later Blake's family got a glimpse of the children...

Workers brought the little boy and stood him before the blue backdrop to take his picture...


He looked frightened...

He looked stiff...

Can you imagine how scary it would be to be in this strange new place?

Next it was sister's turn...

She however would not cooperate...

She was too sad and scared...

She would not stand and smile for the camera no matter how the workers tried to comfort her...

Can you blame her?

Blake and Harlene will be going home soon...

But their places have already been taken by two more needy children...

Heartbroken, frightened little ones...

The light has gone out of their life...

They have become another number...

Another file...

So Sad

Please pray for them!

You can read what Harlene's family wrote about these children's entry into the orphanage here.

You can read what Blake's family wrote about them and the attempt to get the photograph for their orphanage file here.

I encourage you to read the story from the hearts of those who saw this story with their own eyes.

I know this is a sad story to share...

But I hope it will encourage us to keep up the work of advocating for orphans...

They are helpless...

Frightened...

Alone.

They need our voices to speak for them!


While we cannot save them all...

(If only we could!)

It makes such a huge difference in the lives of the children who are rescued!

Each child rescued is a testimony to the value and worth of all children!

God loves and sees each one...

He has not forgotten them...

Can He use your voice to speak for them?

"For the needy will not always be forgotten,
Nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever." Psalm 9:18 NASB
