Last night I could not sleep. I tossed and turned and could not get images that I had viewed for hours out of my head. You see, I follow a few blogs from people in Haiti and for some reason last night was different. The images stuck. They woulnd’t leave. I couldn’t convince myself that they were hundereds of miles away and there was nothing I could do for them. My heart wouldn’t let my mind go there.

You see last night this image became real to me. Last night these children became real to me. They are real children with real problems in need of real people to love them. Many of these children are actual orphans where one of both of their parents has died and they now have no one.
I am pretty sure that Aaron and I have decided that we don’t need a bigger house or more money to love one of these kids. These kids need us way more than we need a bigger house!
I am wondering how many more sleepless nights I will have until one of them is granted a mommy, daddy, a cute dog, and two crazy brothers.
