Why?

Why have I had to wait for so long? I am so happy for others but why has she not been noticed? Is it because she is older? Her region is not closed unlike Celine, she has a decent size grant for a family to get started so why has she not been chosen? She will be 6 years old. I am not complaining but lately I just want to crawl in a deep corner & never come out to blog. Fundraising is so hard right now cause everybody else is doing it & I don't want to do the same as so many are doing, or take away from the other families trying to fundraise. I have tried spreading the word through other facebook pages I am a part of but no luck at that either. I decided to stop posting to the RR groups cause I don't want to wear out the same people over & over. I almost want to stop posting on my personal page as its been hard to get response to anything. Hardly any response or shares on my posts so why bother? I am just tired & want to give up even though I know I shouldn't. Maybe its just time for a blog break for awhile, I don't know like I have said I just feel bleh about what to post. About to go on a road trip so maybe I can pull in new people to Reeces Rainbow & show people Cora Lynnes picture. Please remember Scrapbook fundraiser ends May 31st!

Don't give up....I always read your blog although I may not always comment...I was just looking tonight at the waiting children and there are lots that have huge grants...it's hard not to question why??? -- Only God knows and we have to wait for His timing. Are you coming to Arkansas? I live in De Queen which is 2 1/2 hours away...

Hang in there Leah! I look at the boys with over $10,000 in their funds every day --- most are 5 or 6 years old --- and wonder what is going on. Where are their families? One tip I learned from a new friend is to look for ways to find blogs and groups unrelated to RR that might have a common interest. My friend reads a lot of Catholic (non-adoption) blogs and has gotten some luck getting owners to post about orphans there. Look for new opportunities related to your other interests and friends. Good luck!
