My Child

I am seriously in the process of writing some posts about our trip. It's been a wonderfully busy weekend in Nashville, TN at Visiting Orphans leadership training: The Advance. I will have time to write during our drive home. In the mean time I ran across this and HAD to repost it! I am printing it out and mailing it to my sweet orphan friends in Uganda. It gives me chills to read it!
