Heart Rending Reality (National Adoption Month Day 5)

I had thought repeaidly about what I would post today. Then I read about the heart rending conditions of the orphanage where sweet little Katie resides.

"I saw the caregivers treat the kids like things, not even interacting with them during the few hasty minutes that they spent caring for them each day. If you were actually there, up on the top floor where the “worst cases” like Katie are kept, you would smell a terrible stench that goes beyond the offensive odor of bodily fluids. When there are no volunteers or babas present, the diapers get changed once a day, but the smell goes beyond diapers. I’m pretty sure it comes from the children’s mouths. Katie’s mouth has a strong, horrible odor. The children’s teeth are never brushed, and you may have heard that the ages of the children are up to fifteen and sixteen years old. The smell is so bad that our attorney’s brother (our driver) pulled his shirt up over his nose and gagged, and had to quickly leave."

Read the rest here...
This is what happens when God's commands are put aside.

"Let's Go Get Those Kids" on The Blessing of Verity

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
