I made a mistake! I really should know better...but I went to the waiting child list.
I do this from time to time. Not because I want to give up on Colombia or anything; but just because I cannot help myself. I look at these children & my heart breaks. I wish so badly there was so much more I could do. That I did not have to worry about money or care or anything & be able to help so many of these sweet children that deserve the world.
So here I was last night, doing what I know I shouldn't & going through the list. I fell in love. I saw this most amazing little boy. He was 8 months old, deaf and just was calling to me. It didn't help either when I saw he had the same birthday as my husband. I can honestly say that if we were completely homestudy ready that I would have written about him right then & there! Something just seemed right. I showed him to the DH & he too fell in love! (uh oh, never good when we are both in love)
I figured we could write about him as soon as our homestudy goes through, as he was just posted 2 days ago. I went today to show him to my mom & he was gone!! My heart sank, the little boy that stole my heart was gone, but then again, I couldn't help but smile. I really hope the fact that he is no longer on the site means he found a good home.
I know I shouldn't look at the list...but I can only imagine if my heart can go out to this little guy like it did..what it will be like when I see LP for the first time!
