Okay, this is a hard post for me to write. Last year, I was Robyn's Christmas Warrior. We raised $515 dollars for her and a family actually completed their home study, signed on with and paid an agency all in the hopes of adopting her.

So why is she back on the Angel Tree this year? One simple answer, money.

Robyn is living in an orphanage in a part of Eastern Europe that is very expensive to adopt from and, in the end, the family who wanted to bring her home just couldn't come up with the $30,000 to make that happen.

Now, the good news is that this wonderful family is bringing home an orphan with DS who is living somewhere else and whose adoption costs are lower. Very good news for another little girl. God bless this family who persevered, and will soon be bringing this other precious child home.

But Robyn is still waiting.

If Robyn had a sizeable grant, the family that started out to adopt her might have had her home by now.

Ever feel like a failure about something that was really important?
