Adopting from the third world transformed me. As we waited to travel for Amelia, my own fat and wealthy apathy bowed in shame under the light of my daughter's circumstances. We were enjoying a huge, brand new house, while our daughter was born into a start of poverty and orphan status across the globe.
I first posted about this video in 2009. Today, I'm thankful for this reminder... that despite the abundance and blessing in my life, we have brothers and sisters across the globe whom we are actively hurting by our willful ignorance. Please watch it. It's so convicting in the best way.
There's only One cure for our dark, selfish hearts... Love. God is Love.
"There ain't no reason things are this way [...]
but love will come set me free,
I know it will."
Please watch the video!
