Do you remember Susanna?
You can read her story here.
After I wrote that post, a wonderful family came forward and started the process of adopting not only Susanna, but Susanna's best friend as well.
Kristin and Keith Williams is this family. I wrote to Kristin, and shared my love for Susanna and how excited I was to know that there is finally going to be a family for Susanna. You can read their blog at The Road to Piecefield.
Last week the unthinkable happened. Susanna died. Susanna was never able to meet her mommy and daddy. She never had the opportunity to leave her crib. Praying that with God's grace she felt the love this family had for her through the miles. Although Susanna is now running in Heaven, her family's hearts are breaking. One less in this case is not a good thing. It is a devastating loss.
The need for orphan awareness is huge.
The time is now.
Not everyone is called to adopt.
THAT IS OKAY.
But everyone should take the time to learn about the orphan crisis all over the world.
Every person that prays, advocates and donates is a part of alleviating the crisis.
