Did anyone else see the episode of the Doctor's when they went to Haiti to provide service after the horrific earthquake? It brought tears to my eyes and I tried explaining to MB why I was crying. His innocent face & curious eyes caused me to cry even more. I wanted so badly to scoop him into my arms and hold him like a baby again.

I cannot even begin to imagine what the people of Haiti must be going through. I pray for them. I pray for the people who are serving them. I pray for peace to be their companion as they endure. There is a loving God who is aware of them, every single one of them.

Someday HeRoos and I want to adopt. When I heard about the Haitian orphans and saw their beautiful brown eyes and dark skin, a part of me wondered if we could open our hearts and home to them. As quickly as the thought entered my mind, another replaced it, "There is a time and a season for everything." I know that now is not that time nor season in our life. I pray that when it is, our family will be prepared.

I enjoyed reading your comments. I too have many of the same feelings. It is pretty humbling to see what they are going through. I hope that they continue to heal and that they feel comforted by all of the prayers that have been offered for them. Very sad!
