Time Out - They DON'T deserve it!

Did you ever get in trouble when you were a young child...

And have to endure "Time Out"?

To stand in the corner or sit in a chair...

Or lie on your bed by yourself?

It seemed like hours, but really was not...

Till at last you were finally released!

Mom probably hoped you'd spend the time thinking about...

How to share with brother instead of grabbing his toy...

Or about how to say sorry to sister for pulling her hair...

How to say "Yes Mama" instead of "NO, I WON'T!"

How to say something nice instead of such naughty words!

She hoped you'd have a change of heart...

And choose to act like the sweet child she new you could be!

"Time Out" was to give you a few minutes to think...

Cool off...

And get ready to make a good choice!

Despite the unpleasant moments (that seemed like forever - but weren't!)

You probably still love your Mom!

You know she did it for your good...

It was only for a little while...

5 min. 10 min. 15 min...

And did you no real harm!

"Time Out" CAN be a good thing...

In MODERATION, to help one learn...

But did you ever think...

About the children whose time out lasts forever?

 

And who NEVER have "Time IN"?


No chance to share with brother...

 

Or give sister hugs and kisses...

 

No time to snuggle with Mommy..

 

Or ride on Daddy's shoulders?

 

No chance to feel that they belong...

 

And are loved no matter what!

 

Time out has lasted so SOOO long...

 

They've nearly lost all hope...

 

Of EVER being free :( 
 

They must have done some AWFUL thing...


To have "Time Out" so long!

 


But no and no and NO, NO, NO!!!

 

This so IS NOT the case!

 

These precious ones are lying there...

 

In anguish and alone...

 

Because the world has done THEM wrong!

 


It's thought that they are worthless, "stuff"...

 


"Junk" NO ONE would ever want...

 

It's thought best to hide them far away...

And forget that they exist...

 

Till  finally they give up die...

And then are gone for good.

 

This dreadful fate NEED NOT be theirs...

 

If SOMEONE will but see their plight...

And cross that great ocean blue...

To set them free at last!

 


And gives them that "Time IN" that they are longing for!

Is that SOMEONE you?

****

This post was inspired by OLIVER!

 

His profile says he will soon be transferred..

And these words caught my eye...

 "Oliver is nearly 5 years old and has spent his whole life cooped up in this crib." 

He "will remain bedridden the rest of his life if he is not adopted."

What?

I know, I know, I've seen such words before...

But really!

His WHOLE LIFE till now...

And the REST of it too?

Forever and ever in bed?

This just CANNOT be!

Surely someone...

Somewhere...

Would love to be his Mama!

To spare him from never ending "time out"...

And give him "Time IN"...

"Time IN" for the REST of his life!!!"

Forever loved and cherished...

By the family that makes him FOREVER there own!

 

Please consider saving Oliver or one of his fellow sufferers...

From their fate of ENDLESS "Time Out"...

Maybe, just maybe one of them could be yours!

Or maybe you could find their Mama...

Will you try?

They're desperate!

Jane wrote a beautiful post today that illustrates this point so well...

It's the difference between those doomed to"Time OUT" in "THAT ROOM"...

And her dear daughter who has "Time IN" forever!

The difference is like night and day!
