I don't know if you have ever checked out Adeye's blog "No Greater Joy Mom," but recently she posted some disturbing facts and pictures which you can read about here, here and here. Anyway, it got me thinking about all of the waiting children out there. Before we adopted Luisa, I scoured every waiting child website, and photo listing I could find because I knew we were missing someone in our family. Ever had that feeling?
Well, I went back to many of the same sites the last couple of days and I must tell you, it broke my heart. So many of the same children are still waiting! Ugh! I can't tell you how difficult it was to see the numbers H9-06 and the description of a little girl born in 06, that is still waiting for the right family to bring her home. Luisa was H9-08. It kills me that she was once a number,
I am going to start advocating for some of these waiting children in the hopes that someone out there may be their lost mommy or daddy. If you would like any info on adoption, please feel free to email me, I have received several of these types of emails and I always make it a priority to answer them!
