Just Look at That!

The ChipIn fund for Liliana's ransom has already ended because her RESCUE is FULLY FUNDED!!!!!  Hallelujah!  107% of Liliana's ransom was raised in about 24 hours!  Liliana now has $23,555 in her rescue fund, and word has it that she also has a committed family (actually several who expressed serious interest in adopting her).  Praise God for His faithfulness, His miracles, His mercy, His grace, and His love.  Thank YOU for chipping in, for caring, for praying, for spreading the word about this inhumane case of neglect and malnourishment.  Hang in there, little Liliana, the family God has chosen for you will be coming as quickly as they can. 

Please continue to pray for God to move mountains to RESCUE Liliana from the hell hole she's been living in.  She's hung on for so long, 11 years, so please pray that she'll be able to make it a few more months until her earthly rescue can be completed.

Some of you were unaware that situations like this actually exist in other countries.  While Liliana's case is extreme (most children die before they get in this bad of shape), it is considered "normal" in many other countries.  How extremely sad is that?

I know many Americans who get stuck in the cycle of encouraging others to adopt "kids from our own backyard".  While I agree that ALL children deserve a loving forever family (and we have several from our own backyard), I disagree that parameters should be placed upon where the child comes from.

What many people don't understand is the harsh mistreatment of orphans, particularly special needs orphans, that often occurs in many other countries, outside of America.  In America, we would seriously be incarcerated for treating even an animal the way many children are treated in other countries.  And, the most sickening thing about it is that the governments of most of these countries actually condone this type of treatment. 

You see, many other countries view special needs children as being substandard.  Many of them, like Hitler, would like to "wipe out" all substandard genes.  Many of them view special needs orphans as a threat to society, a curse upon families, a threat to the future.  It is ignorant, I know, but it is the truth of what occurs in many other societies.  Truth be told, that ignorant view is alive and active around the world, including America, it's just that we Americans aren't allowed to harshly mistreat others by withholding food, water, clothing, and by tying these children into metal cages where they rot in their own feces and bodily waste until their death.  We would be tossed in prison for doing such things in America, even if we did those things to animals.  These are HUMANS.  These are REAL LIVES.  These are TREASURES, living in inhumane conditions in other countries.  It's not just one life, not just Lilian's life, it's COUNTLESS lives, waiting for their rescue.

That is why I advocate for the RESCUE of orphans around the world.

"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we do not know what to do.  God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows we know and holds us responsible to act."  Proverbs 24:12

Have your eyes been opened?

Please do SOMETHING.  Anything. 

"Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is within your power to act."  Proverbs 3:27

Remember, you may not be called to adopt, but God does hold you responsible to act.

Thank you for acting on behalf of Liliana.  Please continue to act on behalf of the 147+ million orphans who still need forever families.  Each life is precious, each situation is desperate.  Each orphan is depending upon us to be their voice, to act on their behalf, to pray, to advocate, to donate, to support families who are willing to go, willing to rescue.

Make a difference.

Do something.

Act now.
