Today, I wanted to introduce you to someone very special.
This is Frankie. Precious! Although I have never met Frankie, he changed my life. God used Frankie to break my hardened heart… and to teach me about life.
A couple of years ago, my sister Rose spent a summer volunteering in South Africa. She sent me stories and pictures of the kids. This is how I was introduced to Frankie. Frankie is an orphan. He is the same age as my son. As I cuddled with Sawyer, played with him, tucked him into bed, told him how much I loved him, prayed with him, cooked for him, held his hand, and loved on him some more… My heart ached for Frankie! I wondered if he would ever have a family.
I had heard the statistics. 147 million orphans! How did that not break my heart sooner? Now I loved one of the 147 million… and that changed everything!
Frankie deserves to be loved fiercely by a mommy and daddy!
He deserves a forever family!
I am passionate about adoption... domestic and international. I love both!
While I realize that it is not for everyone... I do believe that everyone can do something to make a difference in the life of an orphan. A figure like 147 million can be paralyzing... but, you can do something to change the world for one.
