My Head Is Just Swimming

I feel like my head is just swimming with thoughts and questions and I have been trying to figure out just the right words to use. I can't. I wish I could, but I'm more of a random thoughts kind of girl I guess.

I just can't understand why there are SO many children in the world without a Mama & Papa to call their own - without someone to love them. I can't understand why you wouldn't want your child if they weren't perfect in the eyes of others. I can't understand why more people don't feel led to adopt.

I know adoption isn't for the faint of heart. I know it isn't for everyone. I just...I don't get why so many people out there don't see the urgency of finding homes for these children that many of us are yelling and screamming for.

I have had so many people say to me - "Oh please don't tell me you want to adopt again!" or "Why would you want to adopt again?" "Don't you have enough kids?" It makes me feel so sad. Not sad for me because if I were to adopt again I'm not going to worry about the people who seem to feel that they get a say in what I do or don't do - when clearly they do not. It does make me sad for all the fatherless out there.

If you are a parent think about your own child(ren). Can you imagine giving them up because they aren't perfect? Or because they don't live up to societies idea of perfect? Can you imagine them growing up in an orphanage or an institution where they have no one to love them and keep them safe from harm?

I wish I could make people see why adopting is so amazing. Easy it is not, but amazing....totally! I would give just about anything to be able to do it again. I'm just waiting for the right time (and if you know me you know I hate waiting and I have zero patience), but here I sit. Waiting and trying to figure out why so many children are taken forgranted.

  1. The same thoughts keep going through my head too, Jenn. I wish I could win a lottery or something so we could bring more little ones home.

  2. It's a daily prayer of ours, to pray for the orphans. My heart melts each time I look at all those beautiful faces. Praying God keeps open doors for those babes!
