"June" waiting in China

When looking to adopt a child, many want a baby. I mean who wouldn't? A baby that you can cuddle, share firsts with, dress up, and with little girls, put big bows in their hair...I mean dude, me me!  But, seriously. There are so many beautiful, precious waiting OLDER children. They all need a Mommy and Daddy just as much as the babies do. They still have plenty of "firsts" and I bet you can bribe them to dress up know that they want a Mommy and Daddy, they deserve one. What child doesn't deserve to be told they are loved, beautiful, precious and learn about Jesus?

When I saw this post on this blog, I knew I had to share it. She needs a family. Could you be the Mommy she so badly wants? Could you make her wish come true?

While in China I met a 13 year old girl.  I will call her June. 

Because she had a birthday while we were there. Unfortunately we did not know that.  A June girl.

I actually wonder if she even knew it was her birthday. Something tells me they do not tell the kids, hey today is YOUR day!

Because she turned 13, it means she only has ONE YEAR left to find a family.  Or she loses her chance, forever.  At 14 they are to old.

So what becomes of her?  We really do not know.

Here is what I know about June.

She is beautiful and her smile lights up her face.

She watches out for the little ones. One day she was upstairs with us and we were trying to get the kids downstairs. One of the little ones needs a walker, and we did not know where it was. We did not have to say a word, June was on it and ran off to help her little friend.

She attends school so we were not with her as much as some of the other kids.  We know she can count in English and writes well.

She has palsey of the left limbs. But it did not seem to affect her.

Her favorite color is yellow.

And she wants a family. She told us this.

Because she only has ONE YEAR left,  she needs her family to step up NOW.

It COULD be done. 

So she might not be what you or I would typically think of when we think of adoption.

She is 13. she has lived in an orphanage her entire life. There will be issues to work through.

Though we did NOT see this side of her, she MIGHT be like any teenage girl.


Or she might not, because she might just look at life a bit differently.

Regardless of any of that, she wants a family.  She DESERVES a family, doesn't she?

She needs a daddy to tell her she is beautiful before she starts looking at boys.

She needs a mommy to take her shopping, fix her hair, talk to her about life.

She needs to hear about Jesus... 

Please help me spread the word about June. WE can be her voice.  WE can lift her up in prayer till she is home.  WE could change her world.  

Bringing June home is totally doable. She has a year. God has a family for this precious girl. Is it your family?
Please share and help June find her home!
