My wife and I have a special place in our heart for the children of Haiti. While our oldest two adopted children were not born there they were born to Haitian immigrants living in the States and spoke Creole in their home. The needs in this country are staggering and I am thankful for folks like Aaron+Jaime, Steve+Maris, the Livesays that continually raise awareness to them.
I posted awhile back that it would be good for my soul to watch a video or look at photos each day from another part of the world to remind myself that this world is fallen and full of need. It is also a reminder that God is redeeming this world and has called us to be His hands and feet in bringing healing and hope to the nations.
Here are some photos of Haitian children by Debra Parker (visit her site if you would like to purchase any of the prints below)
Let them move your soul.
God provided over $4000 for the Bush’s adoption through selling prints! Read his post here. What a great God we have and a great way to raise money for adoption!
I’d love to hear other stories of how you have creatively raised money for your adoption.
I like good photography and I love adoption! That is why I am excited to let you know about an opportunity to get some great photos and help a great family with their adoption. I have known Steven through his blog for awhile now and love his passion for the Lord, the church, and making a difference in the world! You can check out their adoption blog here and you can see and purchase his prints here.
**UPDATE – God has provided for all the Bush’s needs! What an awesome testimony of the love of God’s people! You can read Steven’s post here. Don’t that stop you from buying some of his prints though…Christmas will be here before you know it!
It’s been awhile since I posted photos of the kids. We had a blast at the zoo the other week for S’s 5th birthday. The last shot is S with his birthday present – his first guitar!
