Bawling My Eyes Out
After a beautiful morning with my precious littles making scrambled eggs, experimenting with watercolor paints, and playing at yet another beautiful new park here in our new city, I was planning on sharing a post about our amazing and wonderful little life. Then I opened my blogs and saw this . (Just click over and look for yourself.) These faces haunt me at night. The faces of girls and boys as valuable to the Lord as my beautiful littles with no hope of ever having a morning with a momma cooking, painting, and playing. How do I even begin to let go of the deep sorrow I have over the thought of just one child living this life of hopelessness? I don't have all the answers. In fact, I don't have many at all as I have been in the throws of doing hard with my newest little treasure as we continue to graft her in to our family, but I know that God has given me such a tremendous burden for these children. I honestly feel shame that I sat for so long doing nothing about the orphan crisis. I praise God today for breaking my heart for these children as I see Him in each of them. I also praise God for His promises and rest in knowing that He has a plan for each and every valuable life He creates. Trusting Him in that today!
I am a Christ follower, wife of 20 years to my best friend, and a stay at home momma to five amazing daughters. I am currently waiting for one precious special needs treasure to come home from China. I am passionate about the orphan and special needs adoption. I love to teach God's word, am involved in youth ministry alongside my dh, and love,love, love cooking. Above all, I desire to serve God and surrender my life to His call.
