I have felt, for quite awhile now, that we should add to our family. A child that isn't deemed perfect, by some, but perfect in my eyes. Sometimes, things happen and we can't fufill all our hopes and dreams. It appears that this is the case, for my hope and dream of being a Mum to another. I figure, God knows my heart - trying to "make" my dream happen, isn't the answer.
I was reading the Love Without Boundaries blog today, Tiny was sitting on my lap. I opened the sponsorship page, and asked her which child she wanted to help. She chose this little boy:
I would point to others, she said, "no. this one." I asked Tiny what she wanted to name him, she said "Harry"... go figure! That's not really going to work, so I offered 4 other names... and Charlie was the winner!
Sometimes, our dreams don't work out exactly how we plan... but when the door of opportunity opens, to help someone less fortunate that yourself... you should take it. We pray that Charlie is placed into a wonderful foster family, that will love, nuture and care for him.
