Dumpster Babies

hands-1176673_640

I do not enjoy sharing disturbing news, yet do so in hope that someone who is facing a difficult situation may find help before it is to late.

At first glance Karla Antimo of Chicago was a hero, she stated to have heard a baby crying which lead her to trashcan. Laying on top of a trashcan in alley was a precious baby boy, only hours old with his umbilical cord still attached. Karla saved the babies life by rushing him to a near-by fire station. The baby was resuscitated by firefighters and is now in stable condition. After further investigation it was revealed that Karla was actually the grandmother of the infant and is now charged with false reports.

If it were not for Karla’s actions the baby would not have survived. The father of the baby informed Karla what took place and she went to rescue the baby, hiding the details. The parents will be charged as juveniles with first-degree attempted murder. This is a very sad case of a desperate situation getting out of hand. The babies mother is an honor roll student who now faces a prison term.

The Illinois Fire Department made a statement pleading with anyone in a desperate situation with an infant to come in. The baby boy was the first case since their Safe Haven laws took effect.  Every state has implemented Safe Haven laws to help put an end to the many cases of infants being left to die in dumpsters. Anyone can bring an infant up to one month old to their local fire department, police station, or hospital with no questions asked. The baby will be safe and the parent will be free from any charges.

The National Safe Haven Alliance is a 24 hour hotline that will help anyone in need of assistance to locate a Safe Haven in their area. They are also there to answer any questions one may have about the program.

To Be A Mother

mothers-day-3247144_640

There are woman who long to be a mother but can not.. There are woman who are mothers but will not.. There are so many who do not give enough thought to the full time commitment of caring for a child. There are woman who provide to the best of their ability, love and nurture children until they leave the nest. Some woman devote their time in caring for those who do not have a nurturing home. Being a mother can be one of the greatest achievements in a woman’s life.

For some, Mothers Day can be a reminder of heartache for various reasons. When children reach the age of independence they may act as if they do not need you, but deep inside this is not true. They may wander afar and make many mistakes along the way, but they will always remember the love and care you provided at home. The prodigal son or daughter will one day realize that moms give the best advice. So to all the mothers in the world, who have given so much of their life to children. I hope you are cherished every day, not only on Mothers day! 🙂

Unplanned And Restricted

baby-718146_1920

The hard truth is your teen could have an abortion without your consent,but would need permission to see the film Unplanned. 

The film Unplanned seems to be so taboo that many major networks refused to air the commercials. The film was forced to take an “R” rating before it’s release since it depicts an abortion. There are countless films I do not care to see because they contain nudity, foul language, sexual situations, and violence. I would think films such as these would fall under an “R” rating. Commercials for these films are heavily aired before they hit the box office..

What has happened to our society when a film that aims to share the other side of abortion is shut out, while films that encourage rebellion are supported?

Many woman do not receive both sides of the story when they go to a clinic.. They are not told that the ‘fetus” feels pain, if they ask.. And are not advised that they may suffer post-abortion depression. And for the most part, the clinics do not discuss adoption as an alternative. I realize there are many absent fathers, yet in any case the father has no say.

I believe anyone considering an abortion should have all the facts before they make that critical choice.. not just scripted words painted rosey, to support their right to do so.

Society has changed so much that it often discourages parental involvement in a teens life. Most are rebellious yet still need guidance to make good choices that will affect their future. Did you ever imagine that there would come a day when parents had fewer  rights over their children than the state in which they reside?.. I fear the day has come.

Another Infant Dies From Benadryl

hands-1176673_640

Please sign the White House petition and spread the word!

I need 100,000 signatures in 30 days!

  My Petition

Two years ago I posted Infant Dies From Benadryl hoping that parents or caregivers would heed the warning.

Recently in Vermont a day care worker gave 6-month old Harper Rose Briar Diphenhydramine an active ingredient found in Benadryl.  Infants are dying because care givers want them to sleep, and give them medications. To many have used this product that clearly states it is not intended for children under 2-years old. To make matters worse after a child dies the one who administers the medication receives very little jail time, an average of 2 1/2 years. Irresponsible actions resulting in death should be considered man slaughter. I am asking that you please sign my petition and spread the word because I am not on Facebook. This need’s 100,000 signatures in 30 days or it is dead in the water.  Thank you so much for caring about children.

Seeing 11-year-old Ruby Kate helping senior citizens in a nursing home touched my heart..

So many elders spend their days alone looking forward to visits from friends or family, sadly for many there are none.. If you have spare time please consider volunteering at your local nursing home. Your presence can make so much difference in the lives of the lonely.

If you would like to read a touching story, please grab a tissue and visit Ruby Kate’s fund-raiser.

Giving Joy This Christmas

the-greatest-gift-l-sotka

Give yourself the joy of giving this Christmas!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love to give and it is the season of good tidings and great joy.

All across America we see organizations who gather to bring food and gifts to the less fortunate, but in India and Pakistan I do not know of any.

Christmas at the orphanage in India is a special time to gather for a meal with the widows and their children. Praveen and his family cook a meal for everyone and give gifts of clothing, hygene products, and tiffin boxes for school. It is a joyous time for the children because they do not receive gifts throughout the year as other children do. The children share their talents by performing song and dance, and they share the story of the birth of Christ.There are over 50 children who attend along with other needy elderly and widows. Please consider donating to this celebration. Please share the need with others who enjoy giving to spreed Christmas cheer.

In Pakistan Jamil is also gathering with area children who are in need. Jamil and his family give gifts of food, clothing, and toys to the children who attend their Christmas celebration. Jamil has contacted me and relayed he would need $100.00 to reach their goal for the Christmas celebration. Please consider donating to his cause.

I hope you all have a Christmas filled with happiness and warmth. I pray you will gather with others and share the gift of love. It is the one gift we can all give that would cost us nothing, yet is the greatest gift of all!

There has been much devastation in the several fires that have swept through California.

There is a heavy burden on many as they attempt to start over with only the clothing on their backs. L.A. Marzulli is an author and speaker in the ministry. While he was away at a speaking engagement his family home was lost.

I ask that you please share his Go Fund Me link on your social media.

I pray that all that have suffered loss will find restoration, and all who have lost loved ones will be comforted.

Thank you. 🙂

Wedding Bells And Blessings!

Hi everyone! I am here to share the good news from India and hope you enjoy the heartfelt thanks to those who have given to the cause!

First I will share the good news of Harshitha.Harshitha

Harshitha came to live with Praveen and his family as a young girl, and they raised her well. Praveen has shared the news of her wedding celebration in their home. Children grow so quickly, it seems like just yesterday she was graduating.

Praveen also shared the news of the children and widows. Praveen and his family attempt to give monthly support to the widows in their church who struggle with daily needs. Praveen was also happy that he could provide the children with toothbrushes and paste. It brings great joy to help others in need and to see a child you have raised start a new life of independence. This is one more child rescued from the streets of India, and this is a great blessing.
