Head still spinning.
Overwhelmed by the number of people who would love to support me in the next adventure, people who share a similar vision and a lifelong dream of running an orphanage.
Overwhelmed by the amount of work that has to be done.
Overwhelmed by the amount of money that has to be raised.
But also overwhelmed by the God who is granting a lifelong dream ... and it landed in my lap.
This March, when in China ... we could tell things were being built. Things were coming together. Bridges were being built. But we didn't know what for or when or what it looked like. Yesterday, that began to come into focus.
Friday I had been lamenting the fact that I wanted to help kids, really help them in something sustainable. I even used this one particular group of kids as example of the type of kids I was wanting to help. Wouldn't you know ... less than 72 hours later, THOSE kids were offered to me to care for ... not kids "like" them .. but THEM. (insert Twilight Zone theme song here).
So don't be shocked at me asking strange questions and having odd requests over the next few months.
I'm thinking of some working models - like New Day Foster home in Beijing. Wouldn't it be awesome to be like that someday? But we also can't forget that we are starting at the beginning and we need to take baby steps.
Meanwhile, if you would like to be involved in some way ... let me know what you feel you could do/would want to do. We need everything! Welcome to the rollercoaster ride.
