"Rheann's" Birthday

Sweet "Rheann" will be turning eleven this month. (I don't know the day.) This month will mark eleven years of languishing, unwanted, behind dark walls, with no source of comfort. And the recent ban on American adoptions from "Rheann's" home country only deepens my sorrow and the weight on my heart for her.

I wish that I could say pulling together and praying is enough, but it isn't. I wish I could say donating money is enough, but it isn't. I wish we could find a way to storm the desks of both our president and "Rheann's" country's president with letters demanding that the relevant decision be reversed. I wish...

In the end, we must do all of the above and then some. We must do what we can to save "Rheann" and the others. Maybe we can even find "Rheann" a home for her birthday.

Whichever day it is, happy birthday, sweetheart.

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
