I was told that adopting a baby from another country is very “christian-like.” I don’t know of the stats on christian adoption versus secular adoption but I am sure adopting babies happens equally in both populations. I don’t know too much about adoption which is odd because people in my family are adopted.
The point of today’s post is simply a request for help.
My good friend Shannon and her family are adopting a baby girl from Taiwan. This baby girl was premature at birth only weighing 2 pounds 15 ounces and has Cerebral Palsy. Because the little girl is so young they cannot know the severity of the condition but that makes no difference to them. They will adopt her, and love her and raise her as if she grew in Shannon’s belly just like her other two children. That is the type of person Shannon is. I don’t know if being a Christian has made her this way or if she is just one of those people who no matter how she was raised would have turned out wonderful.
OK, enough gushing about Shannon. What I would like for you guys to do is click on this link and go read her blog. Then look on the side of her blog and consider donating to her cause. Share her cause on your Facebook. If you live in North Carolina consider going to their Chick-Fil-A fundraiser on March 22.
None of this benefits me. Shannon didn’t ask me to post this. I approached her when I started my blog to ask for a button to put on my sidebar and I told her I would write a post later. Today seems like a good day later. 😀
