Who will?

Who will answer for these children? Harry Holt said this after helping to bury an orphan child in S. Korea.

I have never been able to get this out of my heart. Our first 2 adoptions were through Holt International. I read their stories over 9 years ago, while waiting for our first child. It is a driving force in continuing to pinch pennies, drive older cars, not have cable and more.

It is even more relevant to me today after having been to the orphanage 3 months ago. I know one day I will stand before my Lord to answer for my life. I hope to be able to say I have answered for these children in every way I felt you wanted me to, Lord.

Hi! My name is Angela and my husband Stephen and I are in the process of adopting from Thailand. We are actually waiting for paperwork to be processed for a waiting child. Officially we haven't been "matched" but we're told our little guy has been taken off the waiting child list and the right people know our intentions of adopting him. In the picture that you had with this last blog, the shirts the children were wearing look familiar, like the one's our little guy had on in his picture. Any chance there from the Pakkred Babies Home? I'm not even sure if you can share that, I know agencies have restrictions on that. Just thought I'd check. Our blog is

Beautifully said, Megan. I would love to read the Holt's story. A very good friend of mine adopted two daughters from China through Holt. Is there a biography I can get my hands on?

As always, I love your heart. I know God is pleased! You represent Him well.

Love you~
