Isn't he a cutie!!! I swore I would no longer look at the waiting child listings at adoption agencies. It breaks my heart that so many children have no family. They have no mommy to kiss their owies or tuck them in at night. No daddy to teach them to play baseball. No brothers and sisters to tease and play with. No family to pray with and to learn about Jesus' love from.
However...I received a link from a fellow blogger of her agencies' new WC list. I clicked...I could not resist. And there, staring back at me was this little angel. Jiuming. He will be 2 years old in February. His info simply states that he has damaged hearing in both ears. Is he deaf? Hard of hearing???? I don't know. I just know that if I could, I would be on the next flight to China to make him MY son! Since I know that probably won't be happening...I am committing him to prayer. I will pray that this little boy is loved by his caretakers. I pray that he is healthy and happy. I pray someone will tell him about Jesus. I pray that a family steps forward to make him their own!
Dearest Heavenly Father...please be with little Jiuming. Heal his heart of any hurts, bring people into his life who will fill it with love and laughter. Bring Jiuming and his forever family together as soon as possible!
For those interested, he is listed at Living Hope Adoption Agency. Just click on the waiting children's listing and a list will pop up. He is #4 on the list.
BTW...I still pray for Zhang (another little boy in China who is deaf and an orphan). I have not found him on any other lists, and none of my friend's have, either. He is now almost 6 years old. I'm afraid China has given up finding him a forever family. That breaks my heart...I'd love to welcome him into my family, too!!! My mom reminds me that I can't fix everyone's life...sure wish I could, at least try!!
