Love for Chrystyna

Sweet little Chrystyna...


Had a rough start in life...

I don't know the full extent of the difficulties she faced as a baby...

But when she was not quite three years old...

Her mother's parental rights were taken away...

And Chrystyna became a ward of the state.

For a time she was housed in a mental institution...

With little love or stimulation to help her grow and develop.

Thankfully, she was removed from the institution...


And sent to a better orphanage where children are able to receive better care...

And some type of education, however limited it might be.

Below is Chrystyna's most recent picture taken just last year...


It has been NINE years since she was taken from her mother...

She's growing up without a family...

She has a sister Karen who has now aged out of her opportunity to be adopted...

Because she just turned 18.

But Chrystyna still has a chance!

She can still be adopted if a family is found for her!

If only someone will say yes to her!

Dear Chrystyna just had a birthday less than 2 weeks ago (on January 17)...

She is now 12 years old...

Wouldn't it be wonderful if she could get a family before her next birthday?

Can you share to help her find one?

Or maybe, just maybe...

You could be her family!


By the way Chrystyna has a grant fund of over TEN THOUSAND dollars to help with her adoption expenses!

You can read more about Chrystyna on her Reece's Rainbow profile HERE.

You can read more about the adoption process HERE.

Chrystyna's advocate Chelsea, is eager for help spreading the word about Chrystyna...

 She hopes that if many people share her, somehow her family will see her!

If any of you who blog could write a post for Chrystyna, Chelsea will write a post for the orphan on your heart!

You can visit Chelsea's blog HERE.

Feel free to share this post as well...

You can also use the collage below on your blog post for her if you wish.

Share the love, spread the word...

Let's help find Chrstyna a family!

Don't forget "my" boys...

Happy Birthday Micaiah!!!!



Dear Micaiah,

HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY!

Our prayers have been answered...

You are an orphan NO MORE!

Last year I had a virtual birthday party for you on my blog...

This year you can celebrate your special day with your VERY OWN family!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Last year you were an orphan...

But you were not forgotten...

Many people prayed for you...

And hoped a family would find you...

Before this day, your 16th birthday!

And God heard our prayers for you!

He sent you a wonderful family...

And we are so very glad!

I was so sorry to hear that your health has been giving you challenges!

I'll be praying for you and your family, and I hope you can come home from the hospital soon!

I know God is powerful loving and strong...

And he will be with you and your sweet family every step of the way!

Please keep up your courage...

God has great plans for you!

I am including my post for your 15th birthday below...

So you can see our love for you!

Never forget how special you are!

My dear Emmitt...

(That's the name I knew you by last year.)


Your special day is here!

You are 15 years old today!

And though the day may go unnoticed in the institution where you live...

We're celebrating your life here!

And though you may feel lonely...

And think no one knows you're there...

You have some friends around the world who love you...

And are trying to get you out!

We're spreading the word...

And sharing your face...

And praying you'll soon be free!

To let you know how special you are...


And help raise money for your ransom...

Your friends have invited the children below to attend your party today...

And have given some gifts to add to a fund that will help you come home we pray!

You are not alone!

We have you in our hearts!


You are...


Surrounded...


By...


LOVE!!!!
Keep up your courage sweet boy!


God has good plans for you!

We pray that someday very soon...

Your turn for a family will come!

Until that day may God keep you strong....

And safe in his own tender care! 

And now I've asked sweet Navid to give you a big birthday hug from all of us!


(PS - "Navid" (Narkeez) is with his family now too!)

A Special Name...

Two lovely little girls...


With beautiful smiles...

Have been given a very special name...

(Well, special to me at least!)


Why is this name so special?

Because it's the very same name...


My Daddy gave to me!

He gave me his own surname...

This name signifies to me...

That I belong forever and always...

To my family!

These precious Kendall girls...


Are not so blessed as me...

While their name is special to me...

It's only a pseudonym for them...

Given to protect their identity while they wait for a Daddy of their own...

To give them his special name...

A name that shows they are loved and valued...

A name that says they belong to a Daddy who will be their protector, provider, and defender...

A name that says they belong!

Where is that Daddy now?

Has he seen them yet?

Won't you share my sweet Kendall girls...


To help their Daddy find them?

They need their Daddy's special gift...

The gift of his own special name...

That tells them they belong to him...

And will be loved forever!

*****


Colin and Leo...

Need a Daddy to give them his special name too...

A name that says they belong!
