Dear Orphan~


I saw your photo today. You are so adorable!
You're eyes are so deep and full of hope.


I love your little smile,
I know it must be hard some days to find
the strength to smile.
I have heard how little food you have,
but you are still willing to share
with your friends.
What a sweet little person you are!


But, I am writing this letter to tell you that I will
not be able to help you.
You see, my family is happy with the life we
are living.
I know that we could get bunk beds and you could
share a room with one of our bio kids,
but really,
that is no life for either of you.
We have so much going on around here and
life would just be too chaotic.
Our neighbors just got a new TV and game system,
we really think we need to have one too.
I have a 'ladies night out' next week and
I have nothing to wear.
I really need to purchase a new outfit.
I guess I could sponsor you...
but,
it will have to wait til next month,
I really need that new outfit
and my kids are dying for some fast food tonight.
Good luck to you!
(Thank you, Jodi, for letting me copy this post)

Preach it, sweet sister-in-Christ!!!!

Don't stop being a voice for those who have none.

OUCH! Sad...but even sadder yet, is the truth that lies within these words. Even as Christians there are SO many times that our priorities are out of whack, and we need things like this to help us back up, refocus and regroup! Thank you for sharing.

Blessings and Hugs,

I read this on the day we found out immigration had approved our I600 for our second adoption in 2 years! It really spoke to me again about why my husband and I are adopting after having 3 bio kids. Can I please post this on my blog?

Also, I can't wait to read your response to "meant to be". I read that post last week and it left me really unsettled. My friend, Trina, emailed me about it and my husband and I both read it with the same reaction. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

Hugs,
Robin

Thank you for sharing this wonderful article. It is a real eye opener. So many people have wondered why we would be adopting again after three bio kids and one adopted. The only reason I have is that God said so and that is enough for me! I would also love to share this on my blog as well if you don't mind.
