In the summer of 2022, I welcomed a 13-year-old girl from Colombia into my home. Despite having never left her home country, and having lived the past several years in an orphanage, she jumped right in, spending countless hours swimming, watching movies, cooking, making art, and laughing with friends and family. Near the end of her visit, she played "Under My Umbrella" by Rheanna, tears in her eyes and mine. 

Older children face huge huddles in being adopted, even more so children with special needs or from certain countries. Without a permanent home, many age out without the support of a family.

Thank you for your prayers and other support as I work to bring this special child home and give her a place under my umbrella. All donations via Adoption Bridge are tax-deduction-eligible and may be matchable if your employer has an employee matching charity plan.

(FYI: Credit card donations incur a 3% fee; physical checks do not and can be mailed with the downloadable form. Any direct personal donations are not tax deductible or match-eligible, but can be sent via Venmo (@Shannon-Fiecke)).

Under My Umbrella 

You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby, 'cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you, I'll always share
Because

When the sun shine, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella

You can stand under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

These fancy things
Will never come in between
You're part of my entity
Here for infinity
When the war has took its part
When the world has dealt its cards
If the hand is hard
Together we'll mend your heart
Because

When the sun shine, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella

You can stand under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh
Under my umbrella, -ella, -ella, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh
