Dear sweet Mika

Dear Mika,
Dear sweet girl, I have decided to give you this name in my letter to you because it means "Gods Child". You may not be anyone else's child, but you are definetly Gods. Mika I have loved you since the day I first saw your photo on another blog. For over a year I have wondered why you wait still, why no one has come forward as your mommy. Not too long after I started praying for you I started to wonder, has your mommy not come because I am she? Has God led me to you because you are supposed to be my daughter? My husbands daughter? My kids' sister? I believe so Mika. I pray every day and night that God shows me the way to you. I pray that He wraps you in His love. I lay in bed at night wondering, did anyone hold you today? Did anyone hug you? Have you ever heard the words "I love you", Or "Я тебя люблю"? I hope so, but I have doubts. I wonder if you are scared, hungry, sad, hurting. Who comforts you when you have a tummy ache? Does anyone know exactly what to do to make you laugh? Do you ever have anything to even smile about? I know we could give you a better life, a life you deserve. My heart aches thinking of you spending day after day in a crib alone. If I could, I would come get you tomorrow. I keep thinking nothing, no one, should be standing in my way. There's a beautiful song I listen to often, and it always makes me think of you. It's called A Thousand Years. It's so beautiful, just like you. My favorite part "beauty in all she is. I will be brave. I will not let anything take away what's standing in front of me". I will fight for you Mika. I will not give up. I will be brave. But you must be too. I know, you have been for 5 years, but you need to fight a little longer. Until you are home with your "matb", whether that's me or someone else, I will see that your life is not taken for granted. Until then Mika, listen to God whisper to you. He will tell you that you are not a mistake, that you are loved, you are wanted, your life is worth saving. I love you sweet Mika.

Teamwork Tuesday, Saving Stacy & OrphanLove

Yes, I do realize that it is Wednesday!  So I'm a day late and a dollar (at least) short, but here it is!  I'm taking the easy way out tho, and directing you to Melissa's blog!  I advocated for Stacy over the Christmas season, and duing that time fell in love with her.  She breaks my heart, so tiny, so sad.  Confined to a crib, and she's 5 years old!!  I know her momma is out there somewhere, and I pray she comes forward very soon!  Every day that she waits is another day that passes that she knows no love, that she's never been hugged, kissed, told that she is loved.  Will you pray for her with me?  And for her momma who's out there?  Hang in there little one! 

In the meantime, I have officially opened my Facebook "store", OrphanLove!!  Now I am REALLY excited about this because my mom is helping me make alot of the items (she's very crafty!) and all the proceeds will go to help Recces Rainbow orphans and families who are adopting them!  Now through Easter Sunday a portion of all the proceeds is going to the Rhodes' family, who is very close to going to rescue their 2 boys from Eastern Europe.  I "met" Mandy when the Christmas Angel season started last fall.  I have watched this woman selflessly advocate for other families and kids, trying to help them raise the money they need to go get their children, or find their families.  Well, now Mandy needs help, she needs to raise the last of the money they need to cross the ocean and get those boys!!  So visit my store and help them all at the same time!!
