Hope for Alea
Alea is such a child, she is also an orphan. She was obviously well loved before being left at the day care center where she is housed now, so I cannot imagine how difficult it was for her parents to give her up so she would have a fighting chance. Alea is in need of a liver transplant and without it, she will die. There is no other outcome for her without a transplant. Red Envelope is starting a crusade to find her a forever family and I hope those of you reading this will keep this going and keep sharing. Somewhere out there is a forever family for Alea.
As I look the smiling baby in the pictures I find my heart aching for her and yearning for her, but we simply do not have the finances to adopt her. We have the health insurance and between health insurance AND government disability we could get extra insurance to cover her medication of that I am sure, but I know it is not possible. Adopting a child from out of country is extremely expensive and between Lizzie's upcoming eye surgery and Sarah starting college in the fall, it just isn't possible for us to take on another child and especially a child who would require a strict medication regime. I do good to make sure Lizzie takes her medication daily.
So to help little Alea, I ask that you all lift her in prayer. Praying is always a great way to help when you can't help any other way. And if the Lord lays it on your heart to become a forever family for Alea, please listen to the prompting he is giving you! She is a gorgeous baby in need of a home and family and seems to have a lot of love to give. If you are interesting in learning more about Alea I have incorporated the link to Red Envelope with her story for you to read it as well.
Have a great week and God bless you.
