Happy Waiting Child Wednesday! This week we're featuring Hayden! Hayden is one of the most lovable 8 year old boys you will ever meet. He has such a pure heart, which shines through in everything he does.  However, his sweet and gentle nature can sometimes be overpowered by his sassy side!  He loves to strike a pose any chance he can!  Hayden radiates joy. And finds joy in the simple things in life.  He love playing with balloons, eating, shooting water guns, and most of all DANCING!  Hayden was born with Down Syndrome, and it doesn’t slow him down one bit.  He is a quick learner and tries so hard at everything he does.  I can only imagine how quickly he would thrive with the love and guidance of a forever family.  Could it be yours?  To learn more about Hayden, please contact advocate@bringmehope.org #orphanadvocacy #bringmehope

Meet Jonah! ❤️
I love you. Three simple words but with so much significance. When a little boy smiles at you, wraps his arms around you, and says “I love you”, it adds so much more meaning and worth to those “simple” words. That’s what Jonah does. He expresses genuine love. Jonah is an eight-year-old boy who not only enjoys loving others, but also delights in giving high-fives, eating, swimming, playing with bubbles, and hanging out with his pal Brisky. He also has fun exploring and discovering new things. Jonah was born with autism which means it requires effort to read, write, or express fluent sentences. Despite this, he has persevered and knows numbers one to nine. Jonah doesn’t let his disability get in the way of becoming an independent child. He is able to most things on his own, and even enjoys lending a hand by cleaning his classroom. There is no doubt that Jonah would thrive in a family that showers love and encourages him with one on one time. Please share Jonah’s story with others and follow his journey of finding his forever family! ❤️ #bringmehope #orphanadvocacy #meetjonah

The loveliest rainbow! What a beautiful reminder of our Father's promises and faithfulness. After a more challenging morning (sick kids, rained out activities, etc.) the rain cleared up and we made a split decision to have our "water park" activity. The kids had a blast, spirits were lifted, and at the end, we looked over to see this fantastic rainbow--such evidence of our Father's beauty and glory. Many of our kids and their family groups had already left, but we got all the rest in this shot! Oh how grateful I am for these special, precious kids and these simple, beautiful moments. #BRINGMEHOPE

The kids arrived yesterday for our Bring Me Hope Camp and camp is off to a great start! Thank you for all the prayers, donations and supplies! Keep praying for both the team and the kids as the week continues. God is already doing amazing things! #bmhcamp #bringmehope

Smiling because ADOPTION ROCKS! This sweet girl is Zoey, a former Bring Me Hope camper who now has a forever family!! Big thanks to the Rivers family for sharing their Gotcha Day video with us! Check it out on our Facebook or through the link in our bio! #adoption #orphanadvocacy #china #bringmehope

Let me tell you: this kid has J O Y. The veins-in-your-neck-pop-out kind of joy.
The Lord has used this little fella to teach me big lessons.

I've never been in a situation before where I could so tangibly experience the gospel. Constantly. During any hour of the day.
We're all orphans. And adoption is the way God chose to bring us into His family. He chose us when there was nothing desirable in us, when we were helpless, and we barely had ourselves to recommend us.
And in unimaginable love, He sent His son to die for us (while we were STILL sinners) while our orphan hearts were wandering everywhere but where He was.
The Father's good, good gift is cause for an everyday celebration. His love is why I don't lose hope in these seemingly bleak situations. His love is why we love. His love is why we keep pursuing. His love is why we defend orphans and tell their story.
XiaoPeng, thank you for teaching me what it means to love with no expectations, to lean on the Father, and to pour out from the overflow of His kind of love. ❤️

J O Y // as some of yall know, I went to China this summer! I got to work with orphan children at a summer camp (the same children we fundraised for!) and we had an AMAZING time! They brought us soo much joy and there's nothing we would want more than to see all of them get adopted into loving families. They truly are special individuals that just need a chance, and so to help them get matched, I'll be posting about some of the kids I got to meet during camp! Feel free to share and let me know if you know any families who are interested in adoption or just want to know more about the kids! I'm really excited to share with you guys and thank you in advance for spreading the word and making a difference in the lives of these kids! ❤

As we finish the last week of summer camp, we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who gave their time, resources, and love to all our campers! 🦄🎉#bringmehope #summercamp2017

What can you do for another person in a week? Just like that, a week of tiredness, fun, challenges, patience, kindness and smiles is over. I went to Bring me Hope with the intention to love and share my joy with another child. I didn't expect to get someone with cerebral palsy. It was definitely a challenge - her not sleeping, getting up in the middle of the nights, carrying her up and down stairs, changing her, bathing her - I Guess you could say it was a lot more than I've originally bargained for. But what I've gained is a whole lot more than what I've given her. It's inspired me and allowed me to experience a diff sort of love for another human being.
Go check out Bring Me Hope if you'd like to learn a bit more about what I was a part of this week. And if you'd like to donate that'll be amazing! :) ❤️
