Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.

Ephesians 1:5-6

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

Isaiah 1:17

I Saw What I Saw

A very, way too sweet friend-posted this song to facebook for me and her sister (who is also adopting from China) saying this song made her think of us. I haven't yet gone and seen what this song writer has seen, right now it is just those sad eyes of Nina's that tell a story. But I know I will go over there and see things that will break my heart-and I know this song will have a new meaning to my life. I pray daily for the life my Nina and other orphans life daily. Faced with hunger, loneliness, some abuse, and broken hearts....I pray for you sweet children. Dear Lord let me never forget all the children who still need my prayers and our help!

Lyrics to I Saw What I Saw :
I saw what I saw and I can't forget it 
I heard what I heard and I can't go back 
I know what I know and I can't deny it 

Something on the road, cut me to the soul 

Your pain has changed me 
your dream inspires 
your face a memory 
your hope a fire 
your courage asks me what I'm afraid of 
(what I am made of) 
and what I know of love 

we've done what we've done and we can't erase it 
we are what we are and it's more than enough 
we have what we have but it's no substitution 

Something on the road, touched my very soul 

I say what I say with no hesitation 
I have what I have and I'm giving it up 
I do what I do with deep conviction 

Something on the road, changed my world

All about Sara Groves:

I apologize in advance for the fact that I LOVE music, so that is why so many of my post have a song in them. Music to me is what get's me through some days.

PS. I have the song down at the bottom in my play list.

If your looking for adoption shirts don't forget the shirts we are selling!!! And if giving money isn't possible, we could always use your prayers!!

  1. I have never been outside North America. It is sad enough to see the pictures, to know the numbers, and to imagine the pain and abuse of all the children around the world. There is so much pain right here, it will be so sad to see the pain of so many orphans in China.
    I know that we will never forget it, and I hope that we never stop doing everything we can.
