All About Autumn

I have mentioned her before, but she is on my heart so much tonight that I just have to write this post for her.  Little Reagan is sleeping sweetly in her crib down the hall.  She is going through a little bit of separation anxiety right now and cries if she is away from her mommy for too long.  But I am never more than a few miles or minutes away.  Autumn is lying in a crib on the other side of the globe.  She doesn't have separation anxiety because she doesn't know her mommy.  But she has a mommy.  And a daddy and three brothers and two sisters.  When I left Reagan with Ashley tonight I knew that she would be loved and comforted even if she got lonely for her mommy.
 The Quinns live each day wondering if anybody comforts their little girl when she cries.  I never would have believed how much I could love a little girl I've never met who lives an ocean away.  But I do love her already and can't wait to bring her home.  How much more does her family yearn for her?  Can you imagine if your child was so far out of reach...it would break your heart!
  So I ask you if you have not done so...would you go read about Autumn?  Would you pray for her?  The Quinns have been holding an iPad giveaway for a few weeks, it is open for another hour (they just broke $3000 how high can it go before its over?)  if you read this tonight you can still be a part of it.  But if not will you share the story of one small little girl with an extra chromosome who has a family desperate to bring her home?  Remember...."if we do it unto the least of these..."  Autumn is one of these least ones...so tonight it is all about her.
