She taught us how to live, now she was teaching us how to die.
The moment she died it was as if I was standing before God myself. He told me that He has her now. It was His turn to hold her.
I let go, but she took my heart with her to heaven that day.
Life has gone on. It has been almost two years since that day. The day that our life changed again.
We had learned how to live , how to die and now we are learning how to live again.
This has brought us to China.
We are spending one month in China learning again how to live.
I am the Special Projects Director for Little Hearts Medical and Ed is a Board Member.
Along with Andrea Olson ( executive director) we have come to China to help improve the lives of orphans.
We are spending two weeks in Beijing working with the CCCWA and our partnership , Little Flower along with 5 other medical Foster homes.
The children we have met are precious. Some are too young to know they are orphans. The older children somehow know.
All the children we have met are special needs, mostly heart children, the ones hardest to place because of so many unknowns.
So today we are living. We chose joy. We chose to help the forgotten and unwanted. Every life matters, no matter how short or how long.
In the face of each of these children I see Jesus.
On July 1,2013, Teresa went to Heaven.
