It's been a really long time since I've wrote on here, or on any blog for that matter. I've been super busy this year. My family and I are currently in the process of moving to a new house which has been stressful. I feel really bad about not advocating  like I used to. I of course haven't lost my love for orphans, I just haven't really known what to write about. I feel like when I write, that I'm not helping; that my advocating doesn't do anything. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only advocator out there that feels like that. I do know that this is what God wants me to do. I just need to put my faith and trust in Him. Even if it looks like I'm not helping, I am. Maybe I won't ever see the difference that I make. Or maybe I just need to be patient and wait. (Patience is definitely not one of my strong suits. ;) ) Either way it's definitely not any reason to give up and stop. I really love advocating and just love the happy feeling when I see that a child's family had finally found them. I definitely do not want to stop helping!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

-Proverbs 3:4-6

Before I end this post I just want to quickly tell you guys, if you didn't already know, that Rachel's family is going to be adopting a little girl. (A super cute little girl. ;) ) If you'd like to help them out you can click HERE. Or if you'd like to read about their journey you can read my aunts blog HERE.


  1. I know how you feel, Sam. I get the same way sometimes. You feel like that everything that you do is nothing in the lives of the orphans. That if you post something on a blog it won't help. Sometimes I'll get that way, but then I know my feelings are just the devil trying to discourage me.
    When you post or talk about orphans to people it will stay in their minds! Keep on posting!: ) Don't get discouraged. : ) I will be praying for you and your family while you’re moving.

    Jesus Joy,

  2. It can be hard to step out and help because, like you said, you may not even see the results. God hears our prayers for these little ones.

    Thank you for sharing about Alayna. It means so much to us that you love her too!

  3. Thank you, Julia and Sabrina. Love you both! <3
