I’m someone who has seen what can happen when you adopt a child. I’ve seen the possibilities that it opens up not just for this lucky, tiny, helpless human being, but for the people who chose to open their hearts and commit this great act of kindness. I have witnessed the beauty of an adoptive relationship firsthand, and I can tell you with complete authority that, if done correctly, adoption is such a beautiful gateway to a happier, fuller, more compassionate life for so many people.
Remember the awesome Kuwaiti couple who adopted a beautiful baby boy? As much good as they have already done by adopting their unbelievably precious son, they have now collaborated with a few other gracious and compassionate souls to create the ‘Color A Life’ campaign.
The ‘Color A Life’ campaign is an awareness and action campaign which is meant to let the people of Kuwait learn what adoption is really all about. They discuss the legalities and the procedural guidelines that are followed in the event of an adoption in Kuwait, all the way from the application process until the final acceptance and the happy, complete adoption. They go over the misconceptions that people have with the adoption process and they provide a detailed description of how easy it actually is to adopt in Kuwait.
But that’s not what makes the ‘Color A Life’ campaign as important and compassionate as it is. The ‘Color A Life’ campaign paints a perfect picture of the beautiful, life-affirming, and irreplaceable love that an orphaned child feels upon experiencing the loving embrace and care of another human being. It lets you know that an orphan is born, from day one, into a color-less and taste-less world. They are deprived of the most primal and essential need that every human requires, and they suffer this deprivation without any fault of their own and without understanding why.
Nothing will ever fill a child’s heart with laughter and their eyes with wondrous color more than the embrace of a parent or a guardian that can both love them and be loved by them. Nothing.
And so the ‘Color A Life’ campaign is setting out to do exactly what it says: it’s mission is to educate and enlighten the Kuwaiti public about how they can literally fill the eyes and the hearts and, yes, the whole life of an innocent, beautiful child with colors it has never seen before.
How beautiful is this message? How vital? How hopeful does it make me about the future of Kuwait and its compassionate inhabitants?
So very much.

All my love!
