National Day of Prayer for the Orphans of Guatemala

Please go visit JuJu's Crew to see what this is all about.

Some of those are my friends' kids.

Look into their eyes.

Pray for them.

Things in Guatemala are very discouraging right now. PGN is a mess. They are overstepping their legal bounds. They are not honoring the "grandfather clause" that all "in process" cases were supposed to fall under. The US State Department is doing nothing to ensure American families are protected. It's ugly.

And then I would like to add:

The three children shown here with Cupcake will likely never be adopted. Not because they have intimidating special needs, but because they are missing one piece of paper, and it can't be gotten.

Please remember to pray for those children that will never know a family. They will never know what it's like to be tickled by Daddy. They will never know the smell of their Mama's hair. They will miss so much. May the God of Heaven be their Father. Amen.

Thank you, JuJu, for organizing this.
