Worthy? (31 for 21 post 4)

Today I have one question. 

What makes this little girl less worthy of life...

Then these two little girls?  Because by far too many people she is not considered worthy.  She is "a burden". Or "suffering".  Here in America we have tests to make sure our babies are not genetically "undesirable".  I'm going to be brutally honest here and say that it rips my heart out any time I hear about a baby killed because it wasn't perfect...that could be the little girl in the picture...it could be my little girl.
And it breaks my heart that there are sweet babies like my Reagan sitting in orphanages and institutions in Eastern Europe because they are not considered "worthy".  But they are wanted!  They have mommies and daddies and siblings and a little friend by the name of Reagan just waiting for them to come home.  I feel helpless in the face of the abortion rate here in America.  All I can do is try and educate those around me.  But there is something I can do to bring Autumn home.  And Sophia.  Helping bring these babies home is love in action.  I will help them know that like my Reagan, they are worthy of life and love.  Will you help me?  Pray for them.  Share ideas?  Donate?
P.S.  Baby A is Reagan and Baby B is Clarisse....even their Papa couldn't tell them apart :)

These sweeties are equally worthy. I can't wait for Sophia to be home and have playdates with your girls and Autumn.
