~*Why We Do This*~

In the mail today we received a sweet reminder of why we do this.  It brightened my day and, honestly, highlighted my week and its only begun!

I will share these wise words from this dear 'ole friend of my husbands but will not share from whom they have come.  

"I am *so* proud  of you and your wife.  Thanks for having the courage to do what you are doing and what the rest of us should be doing.  May God bless you greatly.  You and your family are in my prayers.  Our memories go back a long ways and I love them all!"  

One of our most supportive family members has been berated recently by another close family member regarding our choice to be Jesus' hands and feet on this earth.  It is truly heart breaking that others think we should leave these sweet little blessings to rot to death in an orphanage!  
We were ALL called to care for these precious treasures. There is no way around that.  Yes, we could sit in our comfy homes, have nice things, and send them clothes and food but nothing can *EVER* replace a family.  

There is something sacred about the family unit and nothing can replace the magic that happens to these children when they are brought into the fold.  
They ~*bloom*~!
The most amazing part is that *WE* get the honor watching them bloom!  For some its a slower transition than others but they all come to fullness in time.  We are willing to give them that time.  
Are you willing to give your time?

Matthew 9:36
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

John 10:14
I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me
