Lydia --> my hero!

Dear Lydia,

You don't know me, but I read your blog today and I've decided that you are my hero. Who ever thought that a little orphan girl in Eastern Europe would be so loved by a young girl the the USA when no one has ever paid any attention to her? And, who ever thought that a young girl like you could could inspire a thirty-something mom like me? Well, you have.

I, too, have a great love for God and for his little ones with Down Syndrome. My heart breaks for the forgotten and discarded ones around the world. Reece's Rainbow is doing a great work and I love this organization.

When I committed to raise $1000 for Maxim for the Angel Tree I was afraid. I was afraid that I couldn't do it. I was afraid that I would let myself and others down when I failed to meet my goal. I was just afraid that it wouldn't make a difference anyway.

Thank you for your childlike faith. What a breath of fresh air! It is what I need. I've been inhibited by what others might think of me. I should only care what God thinks of me. People are going to think I'm crazy! Best wishes and God bless you as you run this race!




Please consider whether you can help Lydia reach her lofty goal.
