The Greatest Gift

The whisper that began years and years ago is getting louder.

"There's so much I could ask for, but just one thing I need. All I really want for Christmas is someone who'll be here to sing me happy birthday for the next 100 years. It's ok if they're not perfect or even if they're a little broken. That's alright, cuz so am I."

We are not in a position to adopt an orphan right now, but there are ways that we, and you can help make the difference between life and death for a beautiful child who does not have a mom or dad to tuck them in at night. We will be participating for the 3rd Christmas in a row in the Christmas Angel Tree project through Reece's Rainbow, an organization dedicated to finding forever families for orphans born with Down syndrome around the world.

The Reece's Rainbow Christmas ornaments are beautiful and make a gorgeous addition to your tree. They have become a family tradition for us. If your heart aches as mine does for the thousands of orphans, especially those with special needs, who long for a family of their own, please consider making a donation to this amazing organization by purchasing an ornament this year. click HERE

Now you're just making you miss me all over again... SCC and Reece's Rainbow in one post. Perfect. I pray that lots of precious kiddos are celebrating Christmas this year with bigger smiles than ever and surrounded by their forever families.
