About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

Be part of Faith's miracle!!!

No Greater Joy Mom: because this life matters!
Precious friends, this is SUCH AN URGENT message. The above post is from one of my dearest friends, who I have known for almost 15 years. Precious Adeye.
She and Anthony have been given the privilege of being called to adopt the bravest little girl I know, a little girl called Faith. The link above is Faith's story. PLEASE, please, please read it. The photo's you see were taken of Faith last month. This little girl is 14 years old and weighs only 6kgs! Yes, you read that right, even though nobody could possibly ever put those two figures together in their heads and understand it! It just is that crazy and that is why I am asking you to read her story and open your hearts to be part of the mighty miracle to bring her home to finally be loved and nurtured by a family who so deeply love her already. She has waited long enough!!!
I have watched Adeye journey into motherhood as she gave birth to her 3 precious sons and then the Lord opened their hearts to the plight of the orphan. As their hearts have enlarged, so has their family. I have had the privilege of meeting and cuddling all 4 of their beautiful adopted daughters, 2 from China and 2 from Russia.
Their sons are the best big brothers I have seen. They care so sweetly for each of their sisters.
Recently the Lord has led this precious family to a treasure so precious. A little girl hidden away in the system for 14 long years. I have prayed alongside every post I have ever read Adeye write as she and Anthony have advocated for orphans. I can honestly say that I am knocked speechless as I read her story about Faith and the miracle they need to bring her home as soon as possible. PLEASE read, spread the word, pray for and GIVE to be part of bringing her home. We need to bring Faith home to this family who love her and are desperate to rescue her away from the unbelievable squalor she has lived in. PLEASE pray and ask the Lord how you can be part of this miracle. Go on over to her blog today and join the amazing fundraiser that they have set up to raise all the funds to get her home. Let everyone you know, know too. I just KNOW that we are going to see such a mighty miracle unfold before our very eyes!!!
All my love xxx

So I am not sure if this will help your friend or not but there is a family in the US who has had a few stories done on them- including a great one via Discovery Channel. Their daughter is a teen too but the size of a 6 month old baby. I know that with rare, often unknown syndromes such as this, it might be helpful to communicate with others who are in a similar boat. Even if not exactly the same thing- I thought it might be worth her looking into. The family lives in Maryland I believe. I would think a google search could help her find that family if she was interested.

OK again I know this is not what you are asking for but I truly believe that knowledge is power. And perhaps reading up on this family might somehow help your friend in her journey to this special little girl.

Hello, Janine!
Just today I saw your post about this girl and the desire of this orphanage in bringing this girl to them.
I wanted to understand more ... I saw the next post that has reached the value to help them to take the girl to them at the orphanage. Do I understand?
Explain to me best, Janine!
I will be praying, darling!
