How to Adopt a Child–

How does one adopt a child internationally?  It takes a lot of time & money!  Most people get scared off just at the thought of all the work ‘adoption’ will be. 

However, there are millions of children waiting for someone to take them home….and we are giving up on these kids because we are afraid of the paperwork or the travel, etc.

My son at age 5, after being home with us a few months asked, “Mama, what took you so long to come and get me?  I was waiting and waiting.”  It broke my heart to think of the time he wished he had a family instead of living in a Russian orphanage.

Check out my new Adoption Highway System…it helps people through the International Adoption process.  It will be easier, save money and time PLUS you will be educated on what is happening along the way.  Best of all, you get a child who is waiting for you to join your family!

Telling Sins isn’t Easy!

Alex, 8, was adopted from a Russian orphanage 3.5 years ago.  I am not sure why the sacrament of Penance was so difficult for him this past week.  The thought of telling a priest, a stranger, that you had been a bad boy at some point, was unbearable to him.  He cried all the way over to the church.  He sat with his buried into my sweater during the initial ceremony.  He refused to line up with the other kids by the priests to talk to them about their sins.  Eventually I walked up to the front with Alex by the hand.  I plopped him down in the chair next to the priest and then moved back a bit so to give them space.  Alex burst into tears when the priest asked if he had any sins.  The priest looked a bit shocked and said,’Well, it looks like you’re sorry for your sins” …unspoken sins but realizing they must have been there if he was crying about them.  Alex held my hand and walked with his head down, sniffling, back to the prayer room to say the prayer.  I knelt with him and said his prayer with him.  He was then given a medal to wear around his neck.  He turned to me and asked,”Is this it? Am I done?”  I told him he was done…it wasn’t so bad…etc.  He then skipped down the aisle, humming to himself, back to the pew where his dad was waiting.  People around us chuckled to themselves as they saw a totally different boy now in the pew—relieved and happy.

Another crisis deverted!!
