"I'm of the school of thought that what babies really need is their mommy."
Those were the words the NICU nurse told us the night we held our Ezra for the first time. From that day on he made a complete turnaround and went home days later completely healthy and whole.
He needed our touch. His body needed that skin to skin contact. The feel of loving hands, the voices of ones who have prayed for him and longed for him.
This was true for Ezra, and this is true of all children.
"...what babies really need is their mommy".
Yegor needs his mommy
Mark needs his mommy.
Nikita needs his mommy.
All these sweet boys need a mommy to hold them with loving arms, to speak to them with a voice that says "You are mine. You were longed for and prayed for." They need a daddy to take them outside and play with them. They need a mommy and a daddy to cross the ocean and rescue them from a life in a mental institution. They are no different than my Ezra. Their needs are the same. God has created their innermost beings. He has plans for them!!!
Each of these little ones are available for adoption. Have you ever heard of Reeces Rainbow? It is a voice for those who have no voice- those who have been forgotten by the world and are in need of their mommy and daddy.
My friend Julia is doing a spectacular giveaway for these boys and several other children over at her blog here. These are faces that have been overlooked for far too long.
Maybe you are their mommy? Maybe you are their daddy? What if?? Wouldn't that be the coolest! That would be the ultimate. :) But, if you are not their mommy or daddy, you can help spread the word to others so we can find the ones God has for set aside for them. You can give money toward their grants so when their parents are found the way is paved for them.
Head over to Julia's blog and check it out! Tis the season! :)
