A Word About Deaf Adoptions
About Cody Marie Bolton
I have always had this special place in my heart for the widowed and for the orphaned.
In several places in the Bible we, as Christians are commanded to take care of the
widowed and the orphans. (This takes place in both the new and old testaments):
- Isaiah 1:17 (NLT), says, "Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help
the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows."
- Jeremiah 22:3 (NLT), says, "This is what the Lord says: Be fair-minded
and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed; rescue them from their
oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, and widows.
Stop murdering the innocent!"
- Zechariah 7:10 (NLT), says, "Do not oppress widows, orphans,
foreigners, and the poor. And do not scheme against each other.
- James 1:27 (NLT), says, "Pure and genuine religion in the sight
of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing
to let the world corrupt you."
And, with a calling from God to work with the Deaf--I thought of no better way than
to help CB Deaf Ministry find home for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Orphans. And I am
very excited about taking this new position.

From the Montoya's
"Why are people sticking things into my ears? Why are people looking at me and constantly
moving their mouths? Why do I have to go into this little room with all these wires
stuck to my head and ears? My friends look at my new mama and move their mouth then
they get a cup of milk. I move my mouth, but she doesn't even look at me. I want
a cup of milk too! Why won't she look at me. I'm going to scream! Oh, now she looked
at me. I am moving my mouth again, but she just looks away again. This is not working.
Why does it always work for the others? I just want a cup of milk." (An excerpt
from Emily's Story by Kathryn Montoya)
The frustration of a deaf child in a home where there is no education for them,
no language for them and no way to use what hearing they have left is impossible
to measure. Deaf children need a loving enviroment where they can be understood
and have the ability to understand others. If you feel that God is calling you to
adopt a deaf child let us know, we would love to help get you started!

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure
and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to
keep oneself from being polluted by the world" (James 1:27)
