They Need Someone

While much of our recent adoption journey that we've shared with you has been about the children's needs in other countries .... never far from our minds are the needs right here in the US.

How can it be we're all so busy in our daily lives that we don't stop and listen to their cries? I encourage you to take a few moments and view this wonderful video put out by the Dave Thomas Foundation.

Some of us are called to open our homes and make room for a child. Some are called to foster-parent through an especially difficult season in another family's life. Some are called to give.

As we wrestle through what God is calling our family to do it all comes down to one simple, yet profound truth. These children need someone.

Yes! So beautiful and moving. My heart wrestles with this, too.
