Today has been a sad day. Little Teresa, whom i had been praying for and had posted here to ask people to pray along with me, has left us to be with Our Heavenly Father.
While it is sad that she is no longer with us physically, we rejoice that she is at peace and with Our Lord. We also celebrate the fact that although she only had a very short time (about 3 years) with her adopted family, she had a wonderful time and had known the love of a family and did not have cross over into Heaven alone. Her family stood by her every step of the way, loving her, caring for her, praying for her, and held her hand till the end of her journey here on earth.
Please continue to stand by her family in prayer as they process this loss and celebrate the memories of sweet Teresa.
Now i’m going to ask you to look ahead… that’s right, AHEAD… i know that Teresa would approve.
In loving memory of Teresa, would you help another little orphan girl find her forever family?
Meet Devora. She seems to have the same spunk as Teresa. She is said to be creative and eager. She loves to have her head rubbed and enjoys being tickled. She has HIV and is mentally delayed. Her speech and mobility is not developed.
But these have not stopped her. Devora can be quite mischievous too; hiding her arms in her sweatshirt, waiting for you to come find them. Her giggles are said to be heart-melting. But she is also content with something as simple as a spiky ball and is quite happy as long as she is playing in her bed or her chair.
Don’t you think she sounds like a lovely little girl? Now if she has a family who would show her the wonders of a family’s love, she would most definitely thrive. A family who would help her in therapy may even see her becoming a chatterbox and a little runner. The wonderful things the love of a family can achieve.
Even if you are not called to adopt, you can still help.
You can share Devora‘s story in hopes that her forever family would see her and come forward for her.
You can also pray for Devora‘s daily needs to be met and for her forever family to step up.
Contributing to her adoption grant is another way to help her forever family reach her faster when they do come for her. Devora‘s best chances are an international adoption as domestic adoption of special needs children are quite few in her country. An international adoption is very very expensive so whatever amount you can give would help. Please click on her name or picture to go to her profile page to donate.
