As I embarked on this journey of spreading awareness for Julia a week ago, I had no idea of the images I would see, the things I would read. My heart has been equally heartbroken over conditions of children living in certain orphanages and inspired by the many stories of adoption.
God has placed this little girl right into my heart and I am called in His glorious name to spread her story. The conditions of where she lives and her care are beyond heartbreaking. They are horrid and gut wrenching. I am a mom who has buried a child so to hear about this innocent child, Julia, left all day in a crib in her own urine, not taken out of the same clothes for days, sedated...well it creates so much intensity and anger in me. But I draw back and focus on God, not my flesh. My flesh wants to scream and sob until I fall into a heap.
But God wants me to DO SOMETHING.
And when the whispers in my head begin screaming, what can you do...you are just one person!
I know this doesn't come from God. God whispers to me, DOUBT?...He says to my DOUBT....."Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him."
God can do anything, His love for Julia is greater than the love growing for her here on earth. She belongs wholly to Him...we are simply called to TRUST his plan. He is one mighty God.
He is calling us to form a bridge of faith straight to Julia. For one family out there...she already belongs to you. By continuing to spread her story we can all help Julia.
An amazing woman who has adopted children from the same area as Julia is raising money through an IPAD give away to go directly to Julia's adoption fund. Please, please visit the website at http://www.nogreaterjoymom.com/ and one last thing...
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!! Get Julia HOME, Get her out of there and into a mommy and daddy's arms...
TO BE HELD...IT's MY PRAYER FOR JULIA..
Thank you to everyone for caring, for reading, for praying. God does amazing work...I am even more in awe when we stop to listen to what he is calling us to do.
