The Big Question

There has been one question that has been asked, regarding my recent trip to China, more than any other:
"Are you going back to adopt again?"

I will be honest, I was a little worried that my trip would result in me falling in love with one special little brown eyed someone.  If I'm brutally honest, I even prayed that I would not!  I feel like I just got my feet under me from Gracie's adoption, and I also feel like I am stretched to the limit with the 5 children I have at home.  As I left for China, though, Richard and I agreed that we wanted God's best for our lives...even if it wasn't physically what we wanted to do.

I am happy to report that I did not fall in love with a special someone.

Instead, I fell in love with Faith...

 In fact, I fell in love with 27+ special someones.  Instead of coming home with the burn to adopt again, God gave me a burn to help empty those metal orphanage cribs.

Perhaps, it was the babies that I have no pictures of that touched my heart the most.  After holding, kissing and loving on so many precious babies who live everyday in an orphanage, then returning them to their cribs to spend the rest of their day/week/month/year, I have to do something!  Right now, that means continuing my work with Pearl River.  Right now, that means asking for sponsors to step up and help us care for these precious children.  We have already seen 3 of those children moved out of the orphanage and into loving foster homes!!  If you haven't already, please join me on this mission...to empty the metal cribs!!
