Today is Orphan Sunday.
I will spend today being generally grateful and heartbroken.
Grateful for all the preciousness in our house.
Heartbroken for all of the little lives without a family.
In honor of today, please take a minute to view/read about children still waiting.
There are thousands of foster children in the U.S. that need a family.
You can view some of the children waiting at: adoptuskids.org.
I am not legally allowed to post pictures or profiles of these children. (I already checked) but I can link you to some of the profiles.
Meet Emil. This little angel is the same age as my eldest son, but looks like a toddler.
He is 15. He has Down syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. When he is 16 he will be ineligible for U.S. adoption. Chances are slim to none that he will be adopted in his own country.
He has a very large adoption grant, over half of his expenses are already covered.
And yet he is still an orphan.
