There's a lot of talk on social media these days about borders and walls and keeping people out. I'm not interested in talking about, or more like arguing about whether or not we need to secure our borders, I am interested in talking about reaching across borders, finding common ground and loving our fellow man/woman.
There's a lot of "call to action" type of posts. Protest this and that, but simply posting something on a wall to incite conversation ISN'T ENOUGH! What I'd like to see is values and convictions put INTO ACTION.
As someone who was adopted, I have a heart for children in need of homes. Foster care, adoption, loving children in a tangible way.
SO, I am putting out this call to action: A young family whom I love dearly is laying it down and putting their hearts where their home is! Kyle Bowell has traveled to Haiti with me the past three years as our Engineer in charge and he is a fine man, leader of men and has created structures in Haiti that withstand hurricane force storms and more. His heart got caught in Haiti and will likely return there every year (planning a trip for September to bless a missionary making huge changes in Haiti as we speak).
Kyle and his wonderful wife, Andrea Coté Bowell are busy raising three fine young boys and she has a heart of gold and realized her family needed to grow. To adopt. To adopt from Haiti. SO, they are right now in the process of bringing a child, a little girl, who will come into a family of love and three big brothers to show her the ropes. They are in for a LONG journey. They are in for BIG expenses and sacrifice, but at the end of their journey, a CHILD will find her forever home and family.
OFTEN WHEN I AM GETTING READY TO GO TO HAITI, I WILL HAVE FRIENDS SAY, "I'M NOT SOMEONE WHO WOULD GO, BUT I CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE CAUSE". IN THIS WORLD IN ORDER TO HELP OTHERS IT COSTS SOMETHING. SO, IF SOMEONE SAID, YOU COULD CHANGE ONE CHILD'S LIFE FOREVER FOR $10 WOULD YOU GIVE IT UP? OF COURSE YOU WOULD.
Please search your heart and bless this family with any gift. You will be contributing toward something eternal. I have almost 800 friends on my Facebook page. IF 1/2 responded with a $10 gift it would be $4000 toward a child's journey to find love. Please consider it.
Go to their GOFUNDME website and please consider being a part of a wonderful story!
