A month ago we stopped along side the road and stared at this gate.
"Every child deserves to have a room of people weeping over them when they leave."
"God sets the lonely in homes."
"The Lord is the Father to the fatherless."
Honestly I wasn't sure my heart could take it but I knew that in the end it would be worth it. The over-arching lesson that I learned in 2011, partially due to the time I spent overseas, was what prompted me to walk through that gate.
"What a privilege it is to be involved in the lives of people."
Specially in the lives of orphans.
I knew that walking through that gate would be a risk.
But it was risk that I was willing to take.
