"Ace's Baby"

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Yesterday I wrote a little bit about Ace's heart for orphans. She talks about them everyday. Her compassion at just three years old really blows me away. So I sat down with Ace and looked at all the precious faces on Reece's Rainbow. She wanted to find a baby who she could help find a mommy and daddy for.

So meet "Ace's Baby", Jesse.
Jesse was born in May of 2010, so he is just over a year old. You can read more about him on his Reece's Rainbow profile. Jesse doesn't have any money in his grant fund yet. The more money in his fund, the greater the chance that he will be adopted.

I sat down with Ace this morning and interviewed her, so that you could hear straight from the Little Monster's mouth:

-Why did you chose baby Jesse?
Cause he is my favorite and I sleep with a Jessie doll at night and I was Jessie the Cowgirl for Halloween.

-What does it mean when a baby is an orphan?
It means they're in a orphanage.

-Why are they in an orphanage?
Cause there don't have a family yet.

-What do you want for baby Jesse?
Get him a family and get him a new toy. And get him a bed and get him a house. Thank you, God. And get him a book. And get him a sister and a brother and a puppy named Jessie the Cowgirl.

-What can people do to help baby Jesse?
There can adopt him. And there can pray for him and get him home soon.

-Well what else could people do. Like we can't adopt him right now, so what else can we do?
Maybe we can just adopt him tomorrow.

-Or maybe they could also tell their friends about Jesse. Would that be a good idea?
Yeah that's good so maybe their friends can be his family.

-What is the last thing you want to tell people about baby Jesse?
He' s a beautiful baby and you should get him in your family now.

I think she said it pretty well!
Look at that precious face! Please help Ace on her mission to find Jesse a forever family. Donate to his fund, share him with friends, keep him in your prayers. That sweet boy deserves a life in a family who loves him.

Lots of Love!
