Since settling in after our last adoption, we've gotten into a place of comfort, habit, and routines. It has been good. Today in my email I received an update from Bringing Hope to Children. These are the same people who we used when we adopted Joy, though they no longer do China adoptions. Usually, I don't look at the children. My heart aches for them. Even though we are not planning on adopting again, some of you might be. There is a healthy girl, 13 next month, waiting for her family. Go here to register. Then on the navigation bar, go to Member Area, then to Special Needs, then China. At the bottom of the page you will see a list of children. Yu Ying is the cutie pie I'm talking about.
As I scrolled the list, I came to a familiar name...Wu. That is Joy's orphanage name. The little one who shares her name is called Wu ChunYu. She is just a month younger than Joy with knee and feet issues. They were together in that orphanage. I think how much Joy has grown and learned in these last 3 1/2 years. I look at ChunYu and think of how much she has lost. As much as I would love to bring her into our home, we cannot.
There are numerous beautiful children, waiting, on this partial list with varying severity in their special needs. But, their biggest need is the one for a family. But, I warn you...once you look, your heart will never be the same.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
