Who Are You Thinking About Today - The Unloved

It was very interesting to me that today, 
I happened upon a post by Nie Nie asking

Considering that there is so much doom and gloom in the world, 
(especially today since it is suppose to be the end of the world) 

I wanted to focus on the reality that I live in and the pure joy and beauty I have found from it.

I wanted to focus on all the wonderful families who have touched my life 
and changed if for good ever since I first started following the 

After following them I was hooked on learning more about other
and the children who are orphaned because they have "special needs".

For the past week I have been following the Cox Family.
The are in U country right now meeting their new princess for the first time.
I wake up every morning to see if there is a new post
and cry along with them as they experience the joy of adoption.

I love reading Julia's blog and feeling her pain and passion 
as she desperately tries to tell people of the condition that 
these orphans live in and then being able to follow 
along and see first hand the change that one little boy
has gone through because he is now loved.

I was also lead to Patti's blog
where I have learned so much about children with Down Syndrome
and the joy they bring to their families everyday.

I am also impressed more and more each day by the dedication and
determination of Cathy at Angels Foster Family Network.
And by all who work with her to unsure the safety of foster babies.

This is my life. 
These are the people that inspire me.

Others may go through life complaining and saying how
horrible the world is and asking where is the love and 
compassion today?

Well, I have found it.

I am living in this blog world.

I am rejoicing with these people 
when there becomes one less orphan 
in the world.

And these are the reason I was inspired to start

So I could somehow try and raise awareness and funds
for these very "Special" children.

This is who I am thinking about today.
This is who I think about everyday.
And I will continue to think about them 
until there are Orphans No More.

Heather Fillmore and Anya are so inspiring! My Journey to Anya was the first RR adoption blog I that I read, and I truly feel (and have told her as well) that their story led me down this path.

Ahhh, I feel all warm and fuzzy today. And I'm thinking about YOU! You are inspiring many people, as well with your compassion and ability to "go and do." Can't wait to see what's in store for your family in the future.

Every time I read your blog, especially posts like this, I think of the brief conversations we've had, and of Proverbs 24:12
Each of God's children can't pursue and advocate for all of His causes, but for those of us who've been awakened to His orphans... it's impossible to STOP thinking of them.
I love what you do, and I love this blog!
