Tonight we spent an amazing evening with Half The Sky . Half The Sky has reformed the way all orphans in China receive care. This wonderful foundation is responsible for giving Teresa the best medical care and loving environment . ( Teresa's orphanage was VERY poor and could not provide her with any medical care. They had her transferred to Beijing and The Half The Sky /China Care home for medical care.) We were able to personally "Thank " Jenny Bowen ( the CEO and founder ) for loving our little girl and taking care of her . We were very moved as Jenny retold " Teresa's Story " to the gathering. As she ended, she said how happy she was for Teresa to have her family even though it was "Too late" to save her life. These two words are what haunt me day and night. Too late, is what we hear at EVERY Doctors visit. Too LATE is what wakes me up at night , Too Late, is what I see every day as children celebrate birthdays, learn to ride a bike, graduate from kindergarten, college, marry... Too Late for TERESA! Teresa will never get to experience these events because she did not receive medical care soon enough and now it is too late to save her life . She is inoperable .
I know God has perfectly orchestrated Teresa's life and in His eyes, it was never too late. Her life has a meaning and a purpose. I know this, but it still does not make it any easier.
It should never be too late for any child . No child should suffer, no child should go unloved, no child should go to bed alone . Every child should know LOVE and be LOVED . I guess this is called 'Heaven".
We are praying for "Peace " , to accept the results of Teresa's Heart Cath. next Friday . We have not given up hope of a miracle.
