Anyone Got Some Cheese for my "Whine"

I usually try to take all my sadness about needing to get Maggie home to my China Sisters, but today I woke up overwhelmed with a need to be in China and holding my child. Since bringing home Emily two years ago for the first time in our lives Scott and I feel that one of the main purposes God has for us here on earth is to bring orphans into their forever family. Just thinking of all the children sitting in orphanages around the world is heartbreaking and the burden is one we must all carry ....Whether you adopt, support an orphan financially, pray, help others to adopt or whatever it is you do ... we must all do SOMETHING .... it is God's will for everyone to care for the orphans and widows of this world !!!! Sorry about the soap box, but we all have this calling in one form or another ....Never let life get so busy or so full that you forget "the least of these."

I thank you Lord for the ability to be heartbroken and for the feelings of helplessness, because it always refocuses me on YOU !!! You are the ultimate healer, provider, Father, physician, restorer, caregiver, forgiver, best friend, and so much more that I need daily !!! Thank you for loving, me!!!

I know how you feel.....it is overwhelming. I am so busy here at home with E, S and D but I would get on a plane in a second to bring another baby home. God will help us get through this. He has the plan, and we just need to be patient!

Sending you hugs my Pingjiang Sister! ;)
