Today I've really been missing Sam, wondering what he's doing, what he's feeling. I sat and read the blog posts about him over and over, hoping to find something I hadn't read before. Crying because I miss him. Weird maybe, since I haven't even met him yet. But he's such a huge part of our life already. I can't carry on a conversation with anyone, at any time, without working him into it. (Sorry for my one track mind!) I was having a pity party. But then I read my friend Mandy's blog. Read it here: http://findingourlittleone.blogspot.com/2012/03/weary-in-my-soul.html And I felt really ashamed of myself. Her family has been on a very long road for their two boys. She has been to their country, met and held them, and then had to leave. They have been waiting for months for their court date to finally come, so they can go get their boys and FINALLY bring them home. Compared to that, my 3 weeks since I found Sam is nothing. Mandy is an incredible Christian. She truly lives it. I still haven't got to meet her in person yet, even though we live maybe 15 minutes apart. But we've talked several times, and she has helped me so much already in our journey. And if you have been following Reece's Rainbow, you've heard of Bernadette. Even though Mandy and her family still aren't fully funded, she devoted her blog to fundraising for Bernadette, and raised about a gazillion dollars in a week. That is so incredibly selfless of her. Bernadette still hasn't found her family. Please read about her here: http://reecesrainbow.org/32733/bernadette She has over $10, 000 in her grant. Please please consider helping Bernadette find a family, getting fully funded, and if you can, help Mandy and her family with the last bit of funding they need so they can jump on the plane when they get the call. And please pray for them to get that call quickly. These kids belong in their mother's arms.
