"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12



“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

That was very good.

Many of our friends have adopted children who were destined for the streets and prostitution, from various countries, including this one.

One girl was adopted in the nick of time when she was fifteen, the following year she would have been turned out of the orphanage and made to make her own way with no one in her life and no help to start an "adult" life. I am very thankful for those who adopt and we love to help and support them in many ways.

WOW! You have NO idea how much I needed to see that today. I am amazed at how God speaks to us and gives us signs that we are on the right path.

I cannot share everything just yet, but I just wanted to say thank you for posting this today of all days.
