- Redeeming Hidden Treasures
- I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

This little angelic creature is our very cute and utterly sweet DICTATOR! :)
She just makes us do things. I don't really know how she does it. She just leads you to whatever she wants and somehow convinces you to get it, give it to her, or make it for her. She just does it. I wish I could figure out how she does it! I think if I could, then I could conquer everything in my path. All I can figure is that it is her total cuteness. It is the presence of that ever cute and ever stubborn extra chromosome! It is just that she is JULIANNE! :)
I admit that I am smitten, wrapped around her pinky finger, and constantly amazed at her wonderfulness. I thank God for choosing me to be her mommy. I can't imagine how I woke up before her arrival. I feel sorry for the world around me that doesn't value the worth of her and so many other children who are "chromosomally enhanced". I thank God for showing me the complete and utter joy of receiving such a blessing. I wonder how anyone could ever look in those eyes and not want to kiss her cheeks off. I wonder if I will ever come even partially out from under her complete control. (lol) She really is the most wonderful and amazing, tiny, four year old girl I've ever seen.
I recently read an article about how they've found a new test that may make testing for Down Syndrome during pregnancy more routine. The article talked about how it could help "eraticate the disease". I nearly vomitted! If they ever manage to do something so ignorant, then our humanity will take a huge hit. I already believe that our world is suffering the effects of killing so many innocent babies because they were suspected to have Down Syndrome. I look at how evil our world is and how little care people have for one another, what if they had all been born? What if we all felt the connection of love for these special people? What other gifts did God intend for them to show us?
God offers us GIFTS and that is what our world wants to do with them!
I for one am very glad that Julianne's birthmother did not abort her! I am so glad that she is alive and gives my home life every day. I praise the Lord that He let me be her mommy!
