Forget Me Not Friday: Ransoming Angels

Forget-Me-Not Friday is upon us and for those of you who are new, read up here.  This video shows why, every Friday I write about the children who living out their days in an orphanage or in an institution all because they possess that extra 21st chromosome or have another health condition that deems them "unworthy" of love and life with a family.

I always feel for the parents.  Imagine being told that your newborn daughter or son has Down syndrome or cerebral palsy or Aperts syndrome or HIV, or FAS.  Imagine the doctors and society telling you that it is best to give up your child and to place them into the care of strangers.   To allow your child to spend his or her days being "cared" for in an institution with other children "like" him or her.  They are told this is how things are done.  That they should give up their child.  This is what is expected.  This is what is acceptable.  This is how things used to be in the United States (and the USA still has a long way to go but that is a whole another post all together).


Today I am happy to announce that my dear nettie friend has her son!  Jadon (Andriy) is an orphan no more.  On Thursday, they went before court and now they are in process of getting Jadon's birth certificate.  An orphan no more!   Read about their journey here.


I am also happy that Josiah's forever family has found him.  They need a lot of help in raising funds to get him home and are hosting a series of give-aways.  Please help me get the word out and read about the Jobe's journey here.

Orphan's needing homes:








Finally, I have Francine's change.  I have gone to the bank twice only to find out that their change counter is broken.  The change is still set aside for Francine.  This month, I am collecting change for Josiah.  Please join me!
