God has blessed us with more than we could ever need. He has not blessed us so we can have the latest iPad, game console or a new car. We have been blessed to be a blessing.

Keep up with our adoption journey and get a peek into the Hollingsworth household.

147 Million Products

Thursday I set up a table selling my handmade paper bead necklaces.

I was able to make these while the kids were visiting with grandparents. I have since let the Facebook world know about them and they are becoming very popular. I am happy to announce that I am now selling the necklaces made by women in Uganda. The women are able to support their families by making these beads. This allows them to live a life free from prostitution.

The same organization is the one who makes the "147 Million Orphans" t-shirts. All of these items must be prepaid before I order. You may pay via Paypal.

What About Them?

Most everyone has been outraged by the verdict in the Casey Anthony murder. I too wonder how a mother could party, get a tattoo and act like nothing happened while she knew her daughter was dead. Yes, the defense admitted she knew Caylee was dead. The verdict is sickening, yes. But I wonder why we got upset about this one case, when there are millions of other injustices going on all over the world and even in America.

We think a mother should pay with her life for murdering her two year old. How is a two year old any different than an unborn baby? How is Casey Anthony any different than a woman choosing to abort her child? Our government allows the killing of millions of babies every year and it is said to be ok because that fetus has yet to use his lungs to breathe.

Why is it that we got so upset with the death of that one little girl when in Russia, children are abandoned everyday. So many Russian orphans are known to have fetal alcohol syndrome. Their mothers deserve time in jail for child neglect just the same as Casey Anthony.

What about the tens of thousands of Chinese babies that are abandoned each year just because they are female? What about the children in Bulgaria that are taken to orphanages because they have a cleft lip, cerebral palsy, or hepatitis? What about the kids in Russia who are sent to rural orphanages, far away from society because they have Down's Syndrome? What about the babies in Africa who are drowned because their village sees them as imperfect?

What about them?
