God has been doing a work in my heart these days... breaking it for the things that break His! He has been clear throughout His Word, that He deeply loves the helpless orphans. When will we, the people that belong to Him, go to the "hard" places, willingly sacrifice our comfort and ease, and be the hands and feet of Christ to "the least of these"? I have spent much of my life focused on so many unconsequential things that make little difference for Him. No more! If I can't bring another home, I will advocate for them, and I will pray as if they were my very own, until they have safely made it home to a family that will love them and teach them of the love of Jesus. Here then, is my "offering" for these hidden treasures:
Emily will be 11 years old on February 10, 2013. She was abandoned and brought to the orphanage at approximately 18 months of age. She was diagnosed as "congenitally silly" or what they believed to be Down's Syndrome. She is prone to ear infections, but otherwise considered healthy. No genetic testing has been done to confirm her diagnosis and many that have seen her photos believe that she might instead have William's Syndrome. I did my homework on this and, though I am certainly no expert on the matter, it appears they are correct. Further testing might be needed if a family is interested in her adoption. But I encourage you to just google William's Syndrome and see what delightful things are written about these precious children. They are believed to be the kindest hearted people you will ever meet and never meet a stranger! What joy will you family miss because you are not willing to look past her "diagnosis" and see the beautiful hidden treasure she really is? I can hardly bring myself to imagine what her life will be like if she does not find a home before her 14th birthday... Please friends! Join me in praying for her and ask God is you might be a part of the miracle she's waiting for. For more information, you can contact me at LMcCary@me.com

"Where there is great love, there are always miracles!"
Laine was brought to the orphanage after being abandoned at the age of 4. She is 10 years old and will celebrate her next birthday on June 13th. She was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome based upon her physical characteristics, but is considering to be mildly affected by it. She is able to take care of herself and even loves to help take care of those around her. She loves to sing and dance and be the center of attention. She is super happy, super friendly, and super cute!!! But Laine needs a Mommy and Daddy of her own! Right now, she is living in a group setting with 8 other children. She has had a lot of contact with foreigners and is used to communicating with them. A contact at the orphanage says that she is a delightful little girl, and those that love her desperately long for her to have a family of her own. Could that family be YOURS? Laine is a precious, hidden treasure just waiting to be found! Praying that her miracle will come soon! If you want to be a part of her miracle, you can contact me at LMcCary@me.com
This precious angel is Zoe'. She is 6 years old- born on January 4, 2007. She came into the orphanage at approximately 1 year old and remains there, waiting for her Mommy and Daddy to come for her. Apart from her diagnosis of Down Syndrome, she is considered healthy. She is independant and can go up and down stairs one foot at a time independantly. She loves to slide and cuddle with stuffed animals. We're looking for a family that's ready to cuddle this treasure forever!
Zoe' is on the shared list. If you would like more information, please contact me at LMcCary@me.com
This little treasure has wrapped herself securely around my heart! Isn't she precious? She is 7 years old and celebrated her birthday on November 7th. She was moved from the orphanage into a foster home at the age of 28 months and has now lived in that home for 5 years. Unfortunately, because of a tragedy in China, all foster children were forced to return to their orphanages. How heartbreaking for this angel! Abby was diagnosed with Down Syndrome when she was brought to the orphanage. She was born with a CHD, but had corrective surgery at 32 months. She also has problems with vision and possibly with hearing in one ear. But she is a smart girl and can speak Mandarin and English, which she learned from her American foster mother. Can you imagine the incredible JOY she will bring to her forever family?
Abby needs a Mommy and Daddy of her own. If she tugs at your heart like she does mine, you can contact me at LMcCary@me.com
