I was on Facebook earlier and noticed one of my friends Apryl Murphy, a fellow photographer too, had posted something she wanted everyone to read on her blog. So I went to it, read it, and cried! Then I was talking to Apryl on FB and she wanted me to repost it on my blog. I also talked to Courtney, who is also a part of this story, and she gave the okay for me to repost it too! So here it is! The beginning is just a good heartwarming story, the end can also be a heartwarming story too, if we do what we can to help!!
A Newborn's Conversation with God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.." God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy." Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak." "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray." "Who will protect me?" God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life." "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you." At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name." God said, You will simply call her, " Mom."
If you are like me, you are probably already crying! If you aren't, you're about to! The rest is a true story about someone I know and some of you may know them too! Courtney's family took in a little boy because his mom was unable to care for him. she had a problem with drugs and he was just not getting what he deserved. they took him in and have raised him for several years. the mom had another baby like irresponsible and selfish women often do and another poor child was brought into this awful circumstance. well this is a little girl and as of a few days ago, she was removed from mother by dhr. she has to be placed into foster care. well since court's fam never legally adopted the lil boy, that meant him too... they are HIS family and to avoid losing him, they agreed to be her safe home while they wait to see what will happen. they are AMAZING AMAZING people with the biggest hearts i have ever heard of!!! that is unconditional love to 2 children that arent even theirs. they actually have 2 small grandchildren of their own!
well when they got the lil girl a few days ago, she came to them with nothing. one outfit on, one that was too small...thats it. no socks, shoes, underwear, nodda. so that is where i ask your help. please please help me help this family. she wears a size 2T and needs EVERYTHING... im sure she needs a few toys for christmas too but at this point, that is the least of her concerns...her brother (who has been with the family for awhile), has plenty of course because they have been taken care of, but with 2 new babies in the fam and now with the addition of her, may be feeling left out too so keep him in mind. he is 5 and loves what all 5 year old boys love : ) any little thing you can do to help would be so appreciated. even if its a $6 outfit from wal-mart or a pack of socks or some old clothes or toys that you have in storage!! just please remember that these kids did not ask to be brought into this situation and not all children have their mommy as their angels. sometimes other people (that are not even related) are the ones that are the angels to these kids : )
If you want to help you can email or facebook me!! If you can't help with clothes, etc, just remember this family and these 2 kids in your prayers!!!!
Thanks so much and God bless!
