Plight of Orphans: I Am More Aware Since My Trip to China
For over a year, I’ve thought about the plight of orphans. I went to China with my daughter in December and brought home Little Dude, AKA Elias – my first grandbaby. We witnessed his emotions as he left everything behind, even if it wasn’t optimal. He left his country, his heritage, and the nannies that cared for him. I witnessed him fight out of fear and embrace out of love.
He gets stronger everyday with the help of fresh air and exercise. He loves his tricycle and taking walks with his two best dog buddies, Fern and Wylie. And he loves his new mama!
I love watching the transformation. I envision him overcoming and stepping into the destiny he is designed for as a chosen child of God.
His life matters…every life matters.

An Orphan Girl Named Esther
So, I am excited to share the story of an orphan girl named Esther. The feast of Purim is coming up on March 11-12th. Her story is how Purim came about.
Esther is orphaned and raised by her uncle. And, when the king decides he needs a new wife, she is taken from her home with all the other young virgins and placed in a harem.
As we read Esther’s story, you will see that this isn’t just any young girl. Esther is chosen, favored, and prepared to help her people. Each blog post will cover a chapter in the story. I will provide a printable page with more details for your own personal study too.
