i have been
rather very frustrated with my little guy these couple of days. “Why?”, you ask.
Well, he is turning 8 (yes, time certainly has flown). And of course an upcoming birthday means presents! Now normally i’m as excited as my son about presents. i love ripping the wrapper off and gasping at the lovely gift. But this time, instead of feeling that excitement, i have increasingly felt how demanding my 8-year old can be. i feel his “ungratefulness” so much more than ever before. Why? i’m not quite sure.
It seems that he is always wanting more. Which child doesn’t? It seems that he isn’t happy with what he already has or is so very quickly bored with what he has been given. But haven’t most of us at some point in time felt that the grass is greener on the other side?
i think some of these feelings come from having my heart broken over my little Heath and my lovely Heather. They have
so little, NO, they have nothing! They have no toys or books and certainly have not been given presents. They have no mummy or daddy who would care whether they knew how to be grateful for what they have. They would be very grateful just for someone who would smile at them, talk to them and play with them. They would even be grateful for just a little part of a toy or a rag of a doll to call their own.
Look at their small innocent faces. i can’t stand that they have been all alone in this world all these years and in institutes at that, understaffed, underfunded places which don’t really care!! They would thrive so well in a loving family environment. They would be a wonderful addition to any family. Would that be your family? Click on their picture to find out more.
You can help, even if you can’t adopt. You can pray for them, you can donate towards their adoption grant, you can share their stories far and wide so that their family can find them faster. You can help, so please do.
If you do help, do leave a comment below so i can thank you personally.
