There's an ache in my heart that won't go away.

I don't know what to do about it, and I feel a bit like a shotgun all spread out looking for ways to ease the ache. I'm literally all over the place.

I ache for something.

But I can't quite figure it out yet.

I look at causes to jump into.

I look at getting more involved with our church.

I dream of mission trips with my older daughters.

I hear of different organizations I can partner with to advocate for the orphan.

And I stay up late looking through pages and pages of waiting children to adopt.


The need is HUGE.

There are literally thousands of children here in AMERICA who need a family.

There are kabillions of children with special needs waiting for a family to say YES to them all over the world. Meanwhile, they wait.

I've looked. 

I've cried.

I've asked.

For now, it's just an ache.

Hopefully soon, I'll know what to do about it.

Until then, I keep turning it back over to my Lord who holds the hands of each lonely child in our world and He knows the plans He has for them.

And for me.


  1. I have that ache too. I keep feeling like we're called to adopt again, though logically that doesn't make a lot of sense since we have two kids recently home and we're expecting a baby this fall. Hopefully we'll both find out where we're being called soon :)

  2. I recite this post in my head almost every day even though this is the first time I have read it here. I could have written it exactly as you have. And it does me some great good this morning to see this post.........
