Ever wanted to make a difference in an orphan's life?
Ever felt burdened for that one baby's face you saw in a magazine?
My heart is heavy with the babies I saw in Uganda
who are not adoptable at the moment.
I want to see them set free.
I want to see them adopted.
I want to see them being hugged and kissed goodnight by a mommy and daddy.
My heart grieves thinking about the babies that I left behind.
The babies who I am not there tonight to tuck in as they go to bed.
The babies I am not there tonight to hold and love.
The babies I am not there tonight to snuggle and wipe away there tears!
The babies I left.
It was the hardest moment of my life
as I hugged my baby Edith goodbye and told her "Un Kwagala Nyo" (I love you).
She knew I was leaving her.
She threw her dolly down that I had just given her.
And raced after me as I saw the nannies shut the gate.
Her tears pouring down her face.
Her cry echoing in my head as I left.
Days later I can still hear her crying as I leave.
And my heart aches and aches.
I miss her.
I miss all the babies that I left behind.
So tomorrow I am fasting.
I am fasting for kids all over the world to be released.
To be able to be adopted.
For families to rise up and adopt.
For families to cast down there fears and worries and step up for the orphan.
I am fasting for my babies I left.
"God can make a way when there seems to be no way"
Fasting when: Tomorrow - Tuesday January 25th, 2011
For: The Orphan
"For where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there in their midst."
Please, please, please will you join me?
