So the Lord has broken my heart open again today.... and I am thanking Him for it. He has opened my eyes to something new that I didn't see before, as only He can do, showing me a glimpse of His beautiful heart. Older children in need of loving families, older children that are about to age out of the system never having known the love of a mommy and a daddy. I was staring at a bunch of faces today and reading their profiles.....beautiful faces longing to be loved, and just crying and hoping and praying for them. At the same time asking myself what can I do for them? Can we maybe bring home 2 at the same time?
What stood out was the way that the children are presented....their personalities are described along with any "special need" , and on so many of the profiles I saw things like "helpful with younger children" which is of course a wonderful thing,but it just made me so sad and struck me so hard that any child should have to me "marketed" to people looking at them on a list, SO. VERY. SAD.
