Theme : Broken


Broken. Helpless. That is how I felt when I saw the precious, beautiful children in Nigeria, West Africa. I wanted to feed, clothe, hug and comfort them all. I wanted to make each and every one of them know how special they are. I wanted to pack them all up with me when I left there and bring them back over here with me.

What a precious little girl... maybe she would be considered broken in this world, but God considers her a radiant light, beautiful beyond measure.

Congratulations on your new son. What a lucky boy he is.

What a beautiful little girl! I've been reading about AIDS orphans in Afica over the past week. The situation is horrible. I've been praying about what the Lord would have me personally do about it. I want to go there now!

Precious photo and sentiment. We can only do what we can do . . . but we have to do that much, right?

Thanks for sharing her face with us. It will stick with me a long time, I think.

Mine is posted!

Hey Jess,
I felt that way in Rwanda too, working in an orphanage where kids were dropped off at doorsteps, found on the side of the road, and just generally abandoned is so heartbreaking.
But at the same time the children exude a joy, a confidence, and an appreciation for life and living that people in Canada could do with being reminded of.
I'm with you in Africa becoming a part of you, it's in your blood.
