Adoption is on our hearts, minds and hands. We talk about it, pray, cry, listen, and dream. Ethiopia lies at the end of our path filled with twists and turns we have yet to see.
Beginning the journey, we asked the questions. God promised to fill our quiver, but how many arrows from Ethiopia? After seeking the Lord's guidance, the answer came through a child's innocent cry.
With gentle tears threatening to spill, my Joshua simply said "Mommy, there are too many kids who need a family, we can't adopt just one!"
Joshua, my little prince, God has blessed you with a special gift, the gift of compassion. For such a young warrior, your heart is full. Full of love for the youngest and lonely. Full of compassion for the hurting and abandoned. Full of joy to be the big brother to many.
You are teaching me, my seven year old. Mommy will fight to bring your brothers and sisters home. And we won't be just adopting one!
