UPDATE: Praise God, this little girl's family has found her and they sent in their LOI as of Saturday. God is SO good!
As for all the Anonymous comments, I apologize if I hit a nerve with all of you, all I was trying to do was advocate for a little girl who's time for a family was running out. I was not in any way trying to be negative towards the previous family. My only intention was to help a little girl find the family that she deserves.
As I posted previously, I do not understand disruption and I pray for those who have been down that road. At the end of the day the most important thing is that there will be one less child without a family and because of that, I am overjoyed.
Today was the day I was going to finally post an update on Drew and Jaxon but there is a more important matter at hand that needs addressed.
Like most adoptive parents I belong to several Yahoo groups. I will admit sometimes I just scan through the posts and delete, but last night, last night there was No deleting.
I am positive some of you (if not most of you) have already seen and heard about this little girl. She is being advocating for on RQ, blogs, and several Yahoo groups. She is a 7 year old girl that is literally on her very last chance at a family. She had a family, in fact, they were just in China to get her when within 24 hours they disrupted. Disruption is something I just don't understand, but that is a topic for another day.
Anyway, this beautiful little girl is 7 and has a smile that goes from ear to ear. Her only Sn is Microtia (an ear deformity). It has been confirmed that this is her ONLY issue. She is perfectly healthy in every other way. If a family does not come forward before SUNDAY, her file will be sent back and she will more than likely never have the chance to have a family of her own again.
I cannot look at this little girl's picture without crying and literally feeling sick to my stomach. She deserves a chance. She deserves more than living the next several years in an orphanage. She deserves more. She deserves hope, love, security. She DESERVES a family.
I SO wish we were in a position to step up and say "YES." Unfortunately, we just can't right now. This little girl's face kept me awake for most of the night. I awakened this morning with a ball in my stomach the size of a basketball. I just can't help thinking about her and the hand she has been dealt at only 7 years old.
PLEASE, PLEASE will you look deep inside your heart and soul to see if this is your daughter? She DESERVES more.
