On Reeces Rainbow you can sign up to be a guardian angel for a child. You are committing to advocate, pray and fundraise. To be honest, I do not feel like a guardian angel at all. I feel like there is this sweet boy without a Mom and I am doing diddly squat. But, I stepped out in faith and I am hoping God will show me my purpose in all of this.

This situation has been laying very heavy on my heart for months. There are many factors at play. Really it boils down to that word that I don’t like, NO. No, you cannot adopt right now, maybe never. I realize that adoption is not for everyone. But, I am having trouble coming to grips with the idea that it may not be for my own family. I always thought I would adopt.

I have sort of been on the outs with God about this lately. Kind of upset and questioning him about why He gave me a heart for this if there is nothing I can do. I have been pleading with Him for an answer. For something to actually do for him and maybe other kids. I think I have got my answer. Advocate for this boy. Fundraise for this boy. Pray for this boy. And you know what? That is doing something. That is what I can do right now. And maybe the no I kept hearing wasn’t really no after all, maybe it was, be patient.

And so I am the guardian angel for this sweet boy. I saw this little one and I thought he could be Gray. When I read people’s adoption stories often you here that they just knew or that the child they saw looked like one of their own. Well, that’s what I thought when I saw this sweetheart. I introduce you to Irie.

He needs a home, he needs a family. I will get into his diagnosis next week and all the fundraising ideas that have floating around in my head. If you have any ideas to raise money let me know!

Please pray for Irie. Pray that he is safe. Pray that he has the correct medicine and good doctors to look after him. Pray for the family that I know will adopt him. Pray for him to be happy and for him to have peace.
