This Could Have Been My Girls...

This could have easily been my girls in this situation:

Why some are spared and some are not remains one of the greatest mysteries to me. I can only pray that these children will be adopted, too.

My girls' birthparents are all cocaine addicts. My girls will never, ever have to experience a life like these children have. I wish I could save them all. I wish I could do more. I pray this encourages more families to foster and adopt. Here's 8 kids who desperately need families.

God, I don't understand why my girls were able to avoid this kind of existence while other children suffer. I am grateful, but humbled. Please keep these children safe. Please send them to permanent families that will never, ever abuse or neglect them ever again. Please show me ways I can do more.

mine too. gave me chills. i have those exact same thoughts everyday. i know what they've been through and how much more they could have gone through if they were still in that situation and it breaks my heart that there are still kids out there going through this. i pray this encourages adoption too. thank you for posting this, even though it made me nauseous.

So scary! Your girls are so lucky to have you as their mother. They are so lucky that in their case the system worked.
Thanks for sharing!!

I have a baby-whose siblings saw unthinkable things. It affects them emotionally-but they are doing better as they will be adopted soon by their very good foster family. I don't know what will happen to this little guy. So sad. i am so happy your little girls were spared.

Praying for those children. May they find forever homes and somehow forget the things they have seen.

I do pray for those children and all the others out there in desperate situations.

As you know, we're trying to become foster-to-adopt parents, if only license would hurry up and arrive.

Good news though, we actually received our 1st placement call, despite the fact we're not quite licensed. It's a long shot but we're submitting our homestudy anyway! :)
