My cousin Ally...

She is finally home, and has been since January 19th.  She has been doing really well, and adjusting to her new life . I've only gotten to see her twice so far, but I honestly can't even express how much I love her, and how much I love adoption. The first time I saw her, she was a little nervous at first and didn't know what to think about all the new people, but after a while she warmed up  and I got to play with her. (She would throw a little MP3 player toy and Rachel(Her sister) and I would give it back to her) Today was the second time I got to see her, she didn't seem scared of us at all. I got to play with her again, a very similar game as the first time. ;) But this time she would follow me to get to the toy, and when I hid it behind my back she would go around me and find it! This game made her so happy. I don't understand how I can love someone I've only met twice, so so much! Her smile, her laugh, her eyes. She's amazing and I just love her. And to think that someone gave her up is unbelievable. I'm so happy, and thankful that my aunt and uncle decided that THEY would be her parents; that they would love her and never give her up. They went through the emotional and stressful journey to bring THEIR daughter home. Adoption is absolutely beautiful, and I hope that one day I'll be like my aunt and uncle, and adopt as well.

I've always loved adoption, but Ally's adoption has really sparked a new love for it. This is the first time I've ever really witnessed an adoption, and seen how needed and beautiful it is. I've read blogs, and read my FB friends adoption journey's, but to be able to see an adoption process, and actually meet the one being adopted has been so amazing. When I look back at the first picture I ever saw of Ally, and to see her now, is shocking. She has only been home for a little over a month and there is already a huge difference! It's amazing what love and care can do. I can't help smiling when I see pictures of her, all happy and cheerful. When my aunt Sabrina and uncle Jeff first met her she had absolutely no idea that she had parents and siblings that had been waiting for her, loving her, and preparing to bring her home. Now, she is home and can finally be in a comfortable, loving home.

I wish everyone would just realize how amazing adoption is, to adopt and save a child(or children)'s lives from loneliness, starvation, and death. I am so thankful to the people who have chosen to adopt and to save the children that their biological parents gave up, and to give them a new life filled with love, happiness and protection. Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to save a child's life! 

<3 Adoption is beautiful <3

"And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me." -Mathew 18:5

Be sure to check out my aunt Sabrina's blog, to read more about how Ally's doing. :)

Hope you all have a great weekend, God bless!

Well, I'm back! I didn't realize how long it's been since I've blogged! Lately, I've really been feeling like I need to get back to blogging. So, to start up blogging again, who wants to see a picture of a beautiful/adorable little girl? I'm pretty sure everyone just said: ME! ;)

Well here she is...

This is Alayna Grace^ As some of you may know, my aunt and uncle have decided to adopt and have been going through the adoption process for sometime now...Well  they are adopting little Alayna Grace or "Ally". <3 I'm so happy that I'll have a new family member through adoption! <3 The Musk's have eleven in their family, so Ally will be making it a perfect dozen. :) If you want to watch their journey to get Ally you can go to their blog HERE

I just wanted to tell the Musk family that I love you all! And I cannot wait until you guys can bring Ally home. <3

I'm sure all of you have already guessed that I have been taking a break from Blogging, but I decided I'd make a post so everyone knows for sure. I'm not really sure how long I'll take a break for. I really want to get my blog up again but I'm at a lack of words right now. Hopefully when I come back I'll have some amazing post, (Don't count on it. ;) ) but right now I don't know what to say. I'll probably try working on 4Girls4Christ with Alyssa, Kaitlyn and Rachel. We have had a lot of amazing things happen with it, so we will hopefully be working on that more. As for Anastasia and Brynn, I will still try getting the word out about them. I am not stopping until they are finally home!

Don't stop coming to my blog, I will-hopefully be back up soon. I am praying that God will give me the right words for future posts.

Goodbye everyone! And don't forget to keep Anastasia and Brynn in your prayers.

God Bless! :)

I have one other thing I'm gonna say:

I know I can't make people care about the orphans...It can make me pretty frustrated. I've tried and tried to tell people about them. Show them how important it is to help, but still they don't listen...They don't care. I've asked God "why?". I don't get it, I obviously CAN'T do this on my own, and if others won't listen to me or help, how am I supposed to do this?? I know I NEED God's help, and that's the only one I need but sometimes it's hard to remember.. Yesterday was one of the days that I didn't understand why God was letting this happen, I mean He can make people care...So why isn't He? Or if He is why haven't I seen it. I know I need to help, but how? No one listens to what I say--I've messaged people telling them. They've either said they'll look at it or don't even reply. I put out flyers at my grandma's, when I went back to her house I was so excited because some were gone...Guess what I found...? They all had blown into the creek. So, what am I suppose to do? 

I asked my friend Alyssa how it was that her and Kaitlyn's blog "BumbleBees & Raindrops" was going so well. She told me that it was God. That they had decided they were going to give it all to God and He would make it work. I'm trying to do the same thing, but it's really hard, but from now on I am going to try as hard as I possibly can to give all the glory be to God. To trust in Him, and that no matter what happens it's for a reason. I might not understand why, but I have to trust Him. Not only does He knows what it is best for the orphans AND for me, He is going to do what is best for us.

Trust. That's what I need to learn. Because with God ALL things are possible!

Anastasia and Brynn, God is with you. He loves you, and is going to do what He thinks is best for YOU! <3

This a short movie, that is SO amazing! People are NOT told what is happening, they're told abortion is alright and that it's not a baby until three months. They are lied to, I am so gad this guy went around and did what he did. This is an amazing thing! So, please please watch this, and share!

WARNING: It does have some disturbing videos and images, so just be careful.

I've been thinking about somethings lately... Which I'm gonna share today. I've noticed so many people that are all for being "green" or for taking care of the animals. So, that stuff is good to a certain extent. When you get so into it that it's more important than people, there is a big problem. Another thing I've noticed is, when someone posts about being "green" or "save the animals" on Facebook, Blog, Twitter or anywhere, they get so many people joining them and saying "lets make this world a better place!". But what if someone posts about the orphans with special needs? Who listens...? Not many. You get more people helping when it's for the animals or recycling! What about the children sitting in orphanages and institutions?? Alone without a family! Come on people, what's more important here?? Animals or people? People!! Yes, God made animals and loves them very much, but doesn't He love us more? Definitely!

"So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows." 
Matthew 10:31 

More people know about how people have organizations to save animals and to "be green" but why is it that they don't know about these children...? I do care about animals. In fact I love animals.. But not more then I love people. God wouldn't want us to love the animals more then the people on this earth. God told us to take care of the fatherless and the widows. They need our help more then the animals do.

 Have a good Thanksgiving everyone!
