Jean, thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to these precious ones. And thank you for allowing us to follow along on your many adventures. We are newly home with our first adopted daughter, but we knew before we left China that we'd be going back. :)

Jean, you have a beautiful soul. Thank you for writing this...I will be praying for you as you wait on the Lord to show you His path. You have a beautiful family. This is how I feel!!! And I have only brought home one, I started to feel this way before even getting on the plane to go and get her in China. How could I leave all the others behind? It is truly a deep deep heartache. But if it makes us to pray and advocate and try in help in whatever way we can, I will take it. God is so good, I am so glad He has blessed you with so many babies! They are precious! Love to you from Elisabeth in Canada xo

adoption journey said...

I completely understand! My heart aches when I read of a child who needs to come home because he needs monthly transfusions and can't get the medical care in China! I ABSOLUTELY feel like we NEED to bring home at least two little ones, but we meet roadblock after roadblock when it comes to financing the adoptions. My hubby says that this is God's way of letting us know we're done (we adopted four since 2010). I see it as a test of our faith. Is it irresponsible to begin the paperchase, knowing we do not have the money for the adoptions? Raising four, six or eight doesn't change our day to day finances; it's just the getting them here part that is daunting.

Hi Jean! I really enjoyed reading your thoughts and see the picture of your kiddos. My heart (like yours) longs to do more.

Yes... that's about how I'm feeling... wondering if I will ever think we are done. SO hard to know when it is time... time to go, time to stay. All I know is we have one more and we are going at least one more time. XOXOXO

My daughter told me she wishes she could hypnotize me so I would forget how many kids we have. :) She keeps bringing me pictures and my heart breaks. There are just so many out there and there will always be those heartbreaking pictures that make us wish we could do more. It is hard. I won't say we are done but we definitely need to get through our next 3 surgeries first. Maybe God is placing this burden on your heart for that new direction you will be taking. He fills is with passion for just that reason. Can't wait to hear about where He is leading you.

Jean, we are in the same spot. Tears come just to think of it. God is working on bigger things. I think we need to communicate!!
