My story, my passion

Today as I type I was not sure what to write. I erased the first sentence several times as I pondered the questions in my head but then I decided to be graceful & not pound at least not today. I'm going to tell you my story cause this is who I am. Ever since I was a little girl I always pictured myself adopting someday (still do!) but never could imagine a whole new world that I would discover in July 2010. If your new to my blog you may not realize I have a sister with Down Syndrome. Her name on my blog is Pink Princess. She is  older than me by just about 4 years. I love my sister dearly even if we don't get along like any other siblings do 24/7. She is expected to be like any other member of our family doing household chores. We don't treat her any different. Partly because of Pink Princess, one special child would not be here today & who knows if I would have discovered my passion, the thing I am driven for.
Thing is everyone has a story to tell & a passion/cause to live for. I live for God & he has chosen to give me a heart for the special needs orphans. At times it is difficult knowing if anyone is reading or sharing your posts but you continue to write cause you know these kids are worth it. Lately I am just exhausted & I don't know if my writing just means to you the same thing repeated yet again. This is my passion & I don't care if I annoy you or not. That's why they call it freedom of speech! These kids simply don't have that freedom or voice. That's why I chose to be a voice to them!
Reeces Rainbow is my passion & I am not going to stop yelling! Even when things are slowly moving with Celines matching grant.
What if she does not reach her matching grant? Still I press on!
When I am having a bad day & am depressed. Yes, I go on!

            Celine is counting on not only ME BUT YOU TOO!!!
She is my beautiful butterfly, that I would go to the moon & back to get if I could. My point is today if you have a passion, LIVE FOR IT! My passion, is caring for orphans like God wants us to do. Whats yours?
