This past summer I welcomed a 13-year-old girl from Colombia into my home. Despite having never left her home country, nor lived in a family home for 5 years, she jumped right in, spending countless hours swimming, watching movies, cooking, making art, laughing, singing to music, and hanging out with me, my friends and family. Near the end of her visit, she played "Under My Umbrella" by Rheanna for me, tears in her eyes and soon dripping down mine. I

As many of you know, older children face large huddles in being adopted, even more so children with special needs or from South America. Without a permanent family, most age out without a support structure in place, not to mention no mom, dad, or other relatives to love them forever. 

Please join me - in prayer, emotion support or financial gift - to be able to bring this special child home and give her a place under my umbrella. All donations are tax-deductible and may be matchable by your corporate employee charity plan. 

Other form of payment: 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
