These words were written by the Executive Director of Love Without Boundaries. It makes me so so sad to read. I just looked at the picture of a boy who has been hoping for a family for years. Today is his birthday. His 14th. Birthdays are supposed to be Happy. It's probably the worst day of his life. His last hope is gone today. He can never be adopted now. I feel guilty. Like I have failed him. I know I can't save them all, but am I doing enough? Can we give more? Can we sponsor another child? Can we Foster children here in the states? Can we assist some one who is adopting? Are we praying for the orphans? Christians......if not us....then who?? We will be adopting again, Lord willing. I can't say for sure when, but with His help, and by His grace we will. There are just too many children out there desperate for a family to love them. Desperately in need of THE Savior......Desperately needing to know that they are not forgotten. Please read the story below. May each of our hearts be broken for the things that break Gods.

When many people think of an orphanage, I think they often envision babies and toddlers. I used to be one of those people myself. On my many trips to China, however, I began meeting and falling in love with the older children who have grown up in institutions, many who never had any true chance of finding a permanent home. Their faces and stories are in my heart forever now, and sadly many of my memories of these great kids involve tears.
