Isn't she a doll? She was born in May of 2011. So, she is about 17 months old. She has dark hair and those beautiful almond shaped eyes. She is healthy, no health problems that are known.
For a child with Down Syndrome she is most likely not even sitting up well yet. Sadly, she may not even be given the chance nor encouragement to sit up. See, she lives in a orphanage. Just another baby among many. With only hired hands to care for her, she doesn't know what a snuggle is. She may not even know what it feels like to be held, cradled in the arms of another.
I have taken on the challenge of getting her grant fund up to $1000 before the clock tolls the New Year's arrival. So far, I am doing a fundraiser through Tupperware. Please let me know if that is something you would like to help with. We are going to be trunking it at our church's Truck and Treat (it's really a "Trunk OR Treat", but the treats are in the trunk so really we ain't fooling anyone and I just rather live on the redeemed side of a time of year I wish didn't happen at all, *kicking soapbox and stepping down*). I am going to make cards to put in the treat bags with Morgan's page and Reece's Rainbow information on it. I have a few more things planned, I will let you know about them as they are prepared.
"Morgan" is also waiting for a mommy and daddy to come and get her. Have you seen them? Do you hear a knock at your heart's door? You don't have to be a superhero, there are no special requirements to be a parent you know. Just accept a fearfully and wonderfully made gift from the hand of God. She is on the other side of the planet, but what would you NOT do if your child was in a prison there. Their only crime, to be born different than the expected.
Take a look at her God designed beauty. Give an offering on the James 1:27 table. Share her picture to find her parents. Helping her will not put a dent in the over 163 MILLION orphans in this world, but it will make a world of difference to her.
Join me would you?
$1, $5, maybe even $10 straight to her grant (Angel Tree starts Nov 1). You could also buy some Tupperware from me, all profits go to Morgan.
