A Guest Post...By Kelly Dirkes.

For Kelly's Birthday she would like to see a Family for Kacey! Please have a read of her post, and help in whatever way you can, whether it be a donation, prayer, or just sharing the post. Thankyou.

She begins her daily walk toward me, uneven and slightly
halting, as soon as she sees the groupa room door open.

Before long, her arms are wrapped around my leg and she is
looking up at me.

She doesn’t make a sound.  She doesn’t have to. 
Her piercing blue eyes speak volumes.

When is someone coming for me?  Can someone love me, just as I am?

And then I wake, brokenhearted all over again. 

At some point at the end of that first trip, Kacey stopped
asking me if I was her mama.  Maybe
it was hearing me respond “nyet” each time she asked.  Maybe one of her caregivers explained.  Maybe she just knew.  She simply resigned herself to being
left behind—again.

On the second and third trips, Kacey would simply hug my leg
and stare up at me.  I will never
know what Kacey was asking for in those silent moments—but I will never forget
how her body relaxed and melted into me when I would reach down and stroke her
fine blonde hair.

She deserves love all the time, not just when families are
passing through her groupa room.

She deserves comfort from a family while she recovers from
surgeries for her Apert Syndrome.

She deserves acceptance and opportunity and a family to help
her blossom.

Think about it.

Is she your daughter?

If you think she might be, please contact Reece’s Rainbow.

If adopting is not something you can do right now, please
share this blog post and her picture.

Please help me show Kacey that she isn’t forgotten—and that
there is someone, somewhere dreaming of making her their daughter.

Share the love.
