Hate is such a strong word, but when it comes to money I have to say that I honestly hate it. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. Money just makes me sick. It is the one thing that stands in the way of so many families stepping forward and adopting. That just breaks my heart.
Then when families do step up it seems they almost all end up having some sort of financial issue come up - their car breaks down, their house gets flooded, the washing machine breaks, etc. Every time I start to even think about adopting again something goes wrong. Ugh!
I want so badly for families adopting to not have to worry about the money. To be able to focus on just getting their paperwork done for their dossiers and getting to their child(ren). There are so many people in this world who make stupid amounts of money and they just spend it on things that don't really matter - new cars, million dollar clothes, houses with more rooms than they will ever need in a lifetime. If I had a house with twenty bedrooms I'd HAVE to fill it with twenty kids from Reece's Rainbow :)
I'm just so frustrated with money. If I had it right now I'd use it to help families bring their children home. I'd use it to go on mission trips to help children in orphanages, and help families understand that it is a great thing to keep their children with Down Syndrome. I'd want to help them see how amazing these children are. I'd help them know the love their child with down syndrome would bring them. And of course I'd adopt again. My four girls need some brothers :)
