Dear Orphan

I saw your photo today. You are so adorable!
You're eyes are so deep and full of hope.

I love your little smile,
I know it must be hard some days to find
the strength to smile.
I have heard how little food you have,
but you are still willing to share
with your friends.
What a sweet little person you are!

But, I am writing this letter to tell you that I will
not be able to help you.
You see, my family is happy with the life we
are living.
I know that we could get bunk beds and you could
share a room with one of our bio kids,
but really,
that is no life for either of you.
We have so much going on around here and
life would just be too chaotic.
Our neighbors just got a new TV and game system,
we really think we need to have one too.
I have a 'ladies night out' next week and
I have nothing to wear.
I really need to purchase a new outfit.
I guess I could sponsor you...
it will have to wait til next month,
I really need that new outfit
and my kids are dying for some fast food tonight.
Good luck to you!

I found this here and they got it from someone else. I hope it is ok that I too am posting it. It just broke my heart with it's truth....
So I too am sharing it... I hope that someone who just doesn't "get it" will read it, and I am praying that in doing so, they will "get it".
God bless the children...


  1. Oh, I've read this before. It is brutal in its truth, isn't it?

  2. Michelle - Thank you for sharing this....truth it is. Hard truth. If only so many eyes and hearts could be opened to the children that have impacted our lives.

    So glad you're following along on our journey to Kaleb! :)
