Oh, this video was hard to watch. The children in the orphanage are so beautiful! Every one of them. Withered limbs from lack of use....bones. Unable to reach out for touch...fearful. Grasping for touch...absorbing. They must dream...those who can. I can only hope that the others love the world they live in and they see Jesus' face in everyone....everything...in their innocence. That they feel loved, somehow. Some look so lost....empty. I don't think I can visit kids in an orphanage again. I don't think I could leave it without leaving a huge piece of myself behind. Once was hard enough.
I will post pictures soon of the little boys. My third child turns 14 tomorrow!!! Pray for Ricky---please! He has been really sick. You name it. Stomach bug, Respiratory bug, and strep. Miserable!!!!
I am the mom of 8...it just happened! When we felt as though our plate was full, God dished us up some dessert. You know...there is ALWAYS room for dessert....right? Along came Ricky, and nearly 4 years later Stas. I LOVE Down syndrome. If people knew what our family experiences with our kids with DS, they would envy us :-) Not bragging, just saying.
