Abraham would have been 5 today. But, he died. He died in China, an orphan, waiting for a family to claim him. He had made it to a waiting child list. But he was not chosen. Not even one family asked to see his file.
Was there not one single family who would be willing to adopt a blind little boy?
I wonder... I really wonder... if a loving family would have adopted Abraham if there had been no financial obstacles. What if there had been a grant to cover the entire cost of his adoption? What if finding a family for Abraham was 100% about finding a family for a little boy who couldn't see? And not about finding a family for a little boy who couldn't see AND who had the financial resources to pay for his adoption?
I'm having a birthday party for Abraham, and you're invited. Would you be willing to get Abraham a balloon? Some party plates? Streamers? How about a toy?
There are many, many families this Christmas season working, saving, and fundraising to give a child a home. I challenge you to give to one of these families today in remembrance of Abraham's birthday. I think he deserves to be remembered. Don't you?
