It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you the news that our sweet Susanna is now with Jesus.
We are heartbroken over the loss of our sweet girl. Words cannot describe how I longed to rock her in my arms, to cover her with a blanket and whisper to her that she was loved, she was home, and she was finally safe. How we longed to show her the world outside the walls of the crib that she had lived in 24 hours a day for 6 years.
My sweet husband's deepest fear is that she was alone and he desperately hopes that she was not afraid.
My friends, this is not how things should be! Children should not die needless deaths because they don't receive the right medical care. Sweet little girls should not live their lives without ever feeling the sun on their skin. Boys and girls should not be locked away because of needs that are considered "special". We are ALL fearfully and wonderfully made!
In Jesus' name and for the sake of sweet Susanna there is something that we ALL can do to change this!
Give to someone who is adopting.
Support someone who is in the process of adopting and continue to support them once they bring their children home.
Advocate for children in desperate need.
Adopt. Give. Support. Advocate.
The numbers are overwhelming. BUT if we all were to take the responsibility of caring for just ONE, then they would all be fed, clothed, given necessary medical care, and know they are valued and loved. Most importantly, they would have the opportunity to learn of the One True Hope. That they have a forever home with their Father in heaven who deeply loves them and longs for us to act on their behalf!
Sweet Susanna girl, we love you. We are so grateful that while we grieve the loss of our life with you, we can do so with hope, knowing that we WILL see you again! For now you are truly home, you are utterly safe, and you are so very completely loved!
