One day I'm going to be a mama...I'm pretty sure.
What I'm not sure of is whether all of those kids I'm already so fond of will carry somebody else's genes around. At least some of them will. Adoption, to me, is just part of my story. It will happen, but I haven't arrived in that chapter yet.
But the stories (especially the ones I read about here) get me so excited, and sometimes I get the opportunity to participate. I know there are people out there that feel the same way I do, and I know there are people who feel the same yet do not feel the pull to adopt. Those people that still want to participate...even if it's not time or maybe it'll never be time.
So I write.
Recently, I was introduced to an opportunity to give, to be a part of something beautiful quite easily. Jeannette decided to host a fundraiser for this cutie pie.
His name is Cliff. He lives in an orphanage and Eastern Europe, and he has Downs syndrome. And Jeannette? She gets excited about adoption, too. So excited that instead of waiting for other people's stories to come along and be a part of (like me), she did something better- she decided to try to raise enough money so that when a family- Cliff's forever family- comes along, all of that money required just to take him home? Will be taken care of .
So, here's the deal. If you want to be involved, click here. I recommend reading the post (it is fantastic and says so much that I didn't say here), but if you really don't have time to read it but still want to give, scroll toward the bottom, click on the "chip in" button, and give a dollar. Really, no amount is too small.
(Thank you, Love, for passing on this opportunity to me.)
