Balancing Heavy with Hope

My last post was a downer, I know. The plight of orphans around the world is a downer. To balance out the downerific-ness of it all- today I am going to post about the hope. The hope all those children have to find families.

The most concentrated source of hope, for me anyway, is the 'My Family Found Me' page on the Reece's Rainbow website. That wonderful organization has helped over FIVE HUNDRED orphans worldwide find their forever families. These children have come home, or are on their way home, to families that will love them. To birthday parties and peanut butter sandwiches. To picnics and to building snowmen. Never again will these children suffer days, weeks, months, years within the confines of a crib or single room in an institution.

Children like... 

And don't forget...

Those are just a few of the children- please go to the actual page to see many more. It is truly a blessing to see their faces. And because people like you and me are aware of the others- orphans not yet with their families have hope too...

...And I think that's pretty awesome. :)
