Hello Everyone

Hi everyone please remember SWW has moved to HERE.

Also I would like to introduce our new writers that we are so thrilled to have with us.

Meet Mellissa who is 19:
My name is Mellissa, and I am from BC, Canada. I love Jesus and want to be his hands and feet on earth. When I was in grade 8 God told me I was going to be a missionary, a moment that has changed my life. I am now going to college to become a Licensed Practical Nurse, which is a skill I will hopefully be using in missions at some point in the future. Since I was in my early teens I have felt a strong call towards caring for the orphans, and my heart has been broken over their plight. I pray that God will use me through this blog, and find some homes for children!

Lija who is 15:
My name is Lija (Leah) and I am 15 years old. My goal in life is to serve God to the best of my ability and help as many children as possible, in any way that I can. For the past three years my world has revolved around learning more and more about International Adoption and dreaming up ways to live my life in a way that I can make a difference, while taking part in the miracle of adoption. I plan to start going to a variety of different countries on mission trips once I turn 18. I want to adopt children through the special needs program in China, and from Uganda.

Rachel who is 14:

My name is Rachel and I’m 14 years old. I first gained my love for orphans last year when my mom took me on a trip to China. As part of our trip we spent a week with China’s “special need” orphans. My experience really touched me and I couldn’t just do nothing. Since my last trip I’ve gone back to China and stayed longer. I really got to know the children I was with and see what amazing things they could do. I am starting working towards being a nurse so I can help these children all around the world. I also want to adopt “special needs” children from China. I think that every child deserves a family and a loving environment. I’ve seen how these children can blossom with love. I believe that, although adopting SN kids can be hard in some cases, it is a huge blessing. From working with them I know they have the sweetest spirits and I believe that SN kids can sometimes see people as God sees them better than the rest of us. I think they play an important part in God’s plan. I want to help these children all find their families. I can’t wait until I’m able to adopt and can start bringing some home to me.
