Zoey Needs to find Her Forever Family!

I've copied this from my friends at Carry Your Light:

This week a little face came into the light.  A small fragile little girl that has been locked away for many years is now available for adoption.  "Zoey" is six years old and weighs less than 10 pounds.  She has been neglected and left hungry, but she held on.  Her little blurry picture is outdated and disturbing.  But it must be shared if she is to find a family.  I have heard from people "We've often thought about adopting..." when I have shared our adoption news.  I can't imagine a child more in need of a family.

It might be easier to get mad, really mad, and ask "how could anyone do this to a child?", "THEY must be evil", "SOMEONE should do something!", "the government should step in..." And we frantically search for a way other than being a voice for "the least of these."  If you aren't her parents, let's find her parents, we can do it together...PRAY, SHARE, GIVE, ADOPT!

Diagnosis: Congenital anomaly of the broncho-pulmonary system; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis; severe malnutrition
 is almost 6 years old and weighs less than 10 pounds. She is currently fed through a feeding tube, though it is obvious that she is not receiving the nutrition that she needs. We have very little information on Zoey at this time, though we are working to get more detailed medical information. The current information indicates that she moves her upper extremities and that she smiles and responds positively while being fed and when caregivers interact with her, change her, bathe her or talk to her.

For Unto Us a Child is Born....

Please, have a safe and blessed holiday season, and remember the real reason for Christmas is that the God of the universe loved the human race so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth as a little baby, fully man and fully God, to live among us and to take our sins on Him and die in our place to pay the penalty for sin. Then He conquered death and rose from the grave so that we could have eternal life. 

All you need to do is confess that you are a sinner and accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. He will forgive all your sins, and you will receive the gift of eternal life. But it's more than just a prayer prayed once - you need to make Him Lord of your life. To learn more, please read my blog post about how to be saved and how to make Christ Lord of your life.
