You recall when I introduced you Mogra? After my heart was ripped from my chest when Baby Daniel died...
I shared it with you here.
I took on the challenge of making a change in his honor, so his death meant something.
I asked and you gave! Putting big smiles on the children's faces here!
Then, I celebrated the accomplishment of transforming Mogra into a facilitation home for adoption here.
To date we have raised $2500 for the Baby House, and we were fortunate enough to be in Kenya when construction started, to physically help in the process.
Since coming home, I have jumped on board with a wonderful organization, run by Mom's like me with a heart for the orphaned. They have agreed to assist us with our Baby House Project!
Linked Through Love is 100% volunteer run, to ensure that every dollar gets to where it is needed the most. These are Mom's who have adopted, who have been to these developing countries and seen the devastation. Moms who have been left with the haunting memories of the faces of the children left behind. Let me tell you, this is something that never leaves you.
Children like little Jordan here, who suffers from a skin condition that we cannot get diagnosed.
Those of you with similar conditions, or sensitivities, know how expensive treatments are. Well imagine having to pay hundreds just to see a dermatologist, the cost of hypoallergenic soap in Kenya, lotions, special non lactose baby formula, etc, etc. These are things you do for a child with sensitivities. Has Jordan had any of these? Sadly, no ... there is no money to support this. Don't worry though, I'm working on this problem behind the scenes, to find a solution for Baby Jordan.
Then we have children like little Sharon here who was so neglected before she came to Mogra that she clings to the slightest bit of attention. Put her down, and her world collapses. She goes limp, and thrashes around. She is the child that you simply cannot pick up or hold, unless you have hours to spend, simply because it breaks her heart every time you leave.
Every child has a story.
Every child has suffered trauma.
Every child is deserving of Love.
Every child is deserving of a Home
