New Love

All three of these beautiful couples mean so much to me, my two wonderful brothers and their wives and my dear cousin and his bride. This past weekend they were all in the same state for the first time since their weddings this year and I wanted to take the opportunity to capture the newlyweds all together.

No more orphans

When I hear of children who are going to be adopted or have been adopted it makes my heart leap for joy! Now a child has a home, now a child has someone to love them, now a child will know what it means to be a part of a family, now a child will have someone to tell them happy birthday, I'm proud of you, you are loved, I care about your pains and sorrows! My heart longs for there to be no more orphans; for each child to know they are loved, they are wanted! No child is worthless, no child asked to be an orphan.

I think sometimes we can think too much about how we feel or how much it will "upset" our lives and not enough about the orphan who needs a home, a family. How will this affect my life, what will I have to give up, is it worth it? Yes it's worth it! Is it easy? No it's not easy, it's hard. But so worth it!
