Doesn't get any easier

One would think that after being home 
from our last trip to Ethiopia over 6 months ago,

and our first trip to China almost 5 years ago,

our last trip to China 3 years ago,

that I would be able to get over 

You'd think I'd be able to lay down at night
without crying myself to sleep.

You'd think that as I feed 
my babies breakfast before school,
that I wouldn't have tears roll down my face.
I am thankful that my babies are home,
thankful that God choose to bless us 
with these silly, silly kiddos.

Thankful that I get to tuck them into bed every night.
Thankful that I get to greet them with hugs
every morning.

You'd think it would get easier,
but when I look into the eyes of 
my babies 
I am constantly reminded of the babies 
who don't have any one to 
teach them right from wrong,
no dinner table to sit at,
no one who cares if their feelings are hurt,
no one to love them.

It doesn't get any easier,
thank God it doesn't.

What a sweet photo of your kids and may all of our hearts break the way your does for the forgotten. It's good to remember, thank you!

I've been feeling the same way. I'm advocating for a sweet 17-month boy on my blog right now and it's breaking my heart to know that right now he is alone. I want so badly to help find his family. I'm trusting that God is preparing them already to be his!
