Baby Alea

I came across this little doll out there in blogland. 


And she stole my heart.

1/2 way around the world, fighting for her life - without a mommy and daddy.

But in the care of a wonderful home and she has lots of surragate mommies out here on the internet!


And of course, it didn't take long (milli-seconds?) for two little boys, who btw, have been praying for a little sister, to fall in love with her too.

They want to adopt her. 

I want to adopt her. 

I want to shout out loud enough for her to hear me.

"HOLD on,
little girl. 

FIGHT for it. 

Fight for LIFE!"


Another adoption is not in our cards.  It's not just a matter of finding the money.  We have not been good stewards of what God has already given us - although we are making HUGE strides on our debt (yay!). 

So, although Alea can't be OURS.  She still has our HEARTS!

We are praying for her.  We talk about her.  We check her blog for updates.

One day, maybe she will KNOW. 

She.
was.
NOT.

alone.

You're raising those boys right - they have big hearts and lots of compassion. Love those two with all my heart. I'll come by tomorrow to purchase my artwork - one butterfly and one heart - that should do it. You rock, boys.

Oh wow. Thank you so much for fighting for little Alea. I'm one of the blessed who get to hold and love on her, and this means SO much.

Blessings,

Awesome idea! She is on our hearts as well. I just know her mommy and daddy will be with her soon.
