Giving Today

Today is is Giving Tuesday after a difficult fundraising week I am trying my hardest to not fall into discouragement.   I know that God has already set the exact amount of money that I will raise for Mick this Angel Tree season.  And if $325 is that amount, I will be happy and overjoyed just to have that.  But knowing that I still have 22 days left to try my hardest makes me refuse to give up.

I have an app that allows me to look at different webcams across the world, and one early morning at 2 a.m. I stumbled across the webcam in Ukraine.  The country that "my" dearest little man Mick is located in.  And while it was pitch dark here in the US at that time, the sun was just rising there.   It was heartbreaking to watch.  The morning itself was beautiful.  Here I was getting ready to fall asleep in my warm and cozy bed.  Inside my comfy heated house.  I wondered about Mick.  There inside those orphanage doors his day just beginning. Another day stuck inside those walls, cold, dark and dreary. He knows no different though.  Sad, but true that his day of no fun, no love, no laughter, no enjoyment or pleasure of any kind is the definition of a  "normal" day for him.  He waits day in and day out for that moment when the nannies bring him a photograph of his future forever family.  He watches the only family he's ever known leave with their forever families. And still he wonders..where are his?  Where is the mother that scoops him up into her loving and welcoming arms, kissing his cheeks passionately? Where is the father that plays with him and makes him giggle?  Where are those wonderful people that are suppose to rescue him from that dreadful orphanage? He waits and wonders.  He may not understand it all fully, but I'm positive he feels a feeling of loneliness and sadness when he watches other children say goodbye to the place that no child should ever have to live in.   

On this giving Tuesday, I hope that you will consider making a donation of any amount into Mick's adoption grant/Angel Tree.   Go look through my blog and see ways you can get things free for donating.  There are many.  (http://micksmiracle.blogspot.com/2013/11/whats-going-on.html?m=1)

Here's the link to donate: 

My intention wasn't to make this a sad post, but when I discuss Mick living unloved in an orphanage there really isn't another title to put on the topic other than sad.  It makes me extremely sad to know that he will be alone this Christmas again. His 3rd Christmas, and never ever celebrated it.  It's unreal and heartbreaking.    

Thank you for reading this short little post. I appreciate it! And thank you so incredibly much for donating! I can't even find words to begin to say how grateful I am for all donations to him. :) 

Please comment if you donate! You don't have to, but I would love to hear from you.  I'd to personally thank you. <3 

Thank you so much.
