Storming the Gates of Heaven

I was going to write a "fluffy" entry, but it just does not seem like the right thing to do at this time.  There is a family, the Davis Family, that desperately needs the prayers of anyone and everyone.  They need the gates of Heaven stormed on their behalf and that of a precious little boy, Kirill.  Tesney and her husband, Greg, have traveled to Kirill's country not once, but twice to visit the boy that they have have chosen to be their son.  Their adoption process has been dragging on for well over a year now.  Kirill is an adorable little boy that has Down Syndrome.  With a family to love and care for him he could have a very full and happy life.  Without a family, his future is bleak and uncertain.

Isn't he adorable?

But someone said, "No".  A complete stranger, a judge, had (still has) the power to decide the fate of another human being.  A child- an innocent child!  After 5 emotionally draining hours, a judge denied the Davis Family the right to adopt Kirill.  Why, you ask?  Because in Kirill's country people truly believe that those with disabilities are not worth anything.  The Davis Family is attempting to appeal this decision, but from what we are hearing, it does not look good.

Is it difficult for you to believe that another human truly thinks that precious little Kirill does not deserve a family and that the Davis family would be better off without him?  Does this upset you?  It should.  It should cause you to fall on your knees and cry out to God!  It should make you feel sick at your stomach and ask WHY?!

Pray.  I am not even going to say "pretty please".  Just pray.  If we can be upset about polar bears, whales, trees, and oceans, how much more we should be upset about humans.  Children.  The creation that is the apple of God's eye!

Here is the Davis Family with Kirill.  They love him and desperately want to bring him home.  Pray.

Tesney has chosen to love Kirill and would do anything to be his momma.  PRAY!

But Jesus called the children to Him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Luke 18:16
