Orphanage Trip- China

Our family has just welcomed another sweet little cousin from China!  This was written by her daddy:
I am overwhelmed with both joy and sorrow from our trip to Amy’s orphanage yesterday. It was a great trip to capture pictures and video that we will be able to share with her someday when she has so many questions about her beginnings. The trip was priceless!  What is overtaking my thoughts and emotions are the little …ones left behind. I cannot help to think that anybody that would actually experience with their own eyes and see these little ones that God Himself created and see their need, they would be stirred to action. I have asked myself so many times why our family would choose to adopt again with so much sacrifice in time and financial resources. But I got my answer yesterday. The need is so much greater than my loss! I cannot express in words how much my love for Amy has grown in such a short amount of time. This is only possible through the love that my heavenly Father has instilled inside of me. I feel it is the same love that God poured out to me through His Son Jesus when He adopted me into His family. I cannot think of a better way to serve Him and follow His lead in obedience.  ~ Mitch
