There Is So Much Hope........

Yesterday I read two blog posts that simply made my heart happy!! They were about two little girls whom I fell in love with a year ago. Two little girls who lived in an orphanage only because they were born with Down syndrome. I donated to their Reeces Rainbow accounts and wished so much that it was our time to adopt one of them. But God had other plans, he already had two families picked out that he wanted to raise these beautiful little girls. As much as I would have loved to adopt either one of them, I am so thrilled that the Sanchez and Smith families were chosen for them. After donating to Reeces Rainbow, I received these beautiful ornaments with Sophia and Dasha's pictures on them and I will cherish them FOREVER!! For these two little girls have opened my eyes to the wonderful world of adoption and that these precious kids who have been all but forgotten in their countries do indeed have so much hope.....all they need is a family to love them. Just see for yourselves below!!


My ornament of Sophia hanging in the middle of our tree


Sophia spending her first Christmas with
a family...can you even imagine how
much her life has changed!!


Here is the very precious Dasha. She was the first face
I fell in love with and I will always have such a special
love for her!!


Look at Dasha now...she has only been home about a
month now but she got to celebrate with a family
who loves her very much this year. I just can't
stop smiling!!

That is so awesome. Not only to the sweet children have hope but so do I. I have hope that my Sophia will be home for Christmas next year with her forever mommy, me. Thank you Denise for helping me find my little girl. If it hadn't been for your post about RR I never would have found her.
