heartbreak is…

…1,951 names on the waiting child list released Tuesday from the China Center for Adoption Affairs.  That’s 1951 children.

 1,951   Just ponder that number for a minute.

Most—but not all—have medical needs, but all share a common special need:  a family!   Some of those children have been officially waiting for families for more than 2 years.  TWO YEARS!!

I would adopt again in a heartbeat, but at our house we have two  ‘diseases’ known in adoption circles as “Reluctant Spouse Syndrome” and “Reluctant Bank Account Syndrome.”    If those could be overcome…well…

What’s holding you back?
