I took my boys out of the orphanage once and for all!
That evening I spoke with Yared,
Yared works for our agency in Ethiopia,
his office is at our sons orphanage.
Yared told me that after
we left the orphanage that day -
an airplane flew over head.
The kids cheered for our boys -
as they thought their friends were on that plane,
on their way to America,
with their new family.
The sweetness of these children,
for their families to find them,
for a mommy to hold them when they skin their knee,
for a daddy to teach them
they are genuinely happy for each other.
These children are incredibly special
and have touched my
So, whenever I see an airplane over-head,
these are the faces I see,
and the children I pray for.
