Today my heart has been heavy.
I have been thinking about a woman whom I've never met.
A mother who is looking for a family for her children
.....because she is dying of AIDS.
The saddest part is, she shouldn't be dying.
Her children should not have lost their father
Her children should not be losing their mother
If she lived in the United States things would be different
She could have been educated on how AIDS is contracted
She could have been treated with medications to live a long life
She wouldn't have passed the virus to her son
To put a story and face to adoption of orphans
is simply sadder and heavier than I could imagine
They all had parents
They all have stories
Today a woman on the other side of the world
is preparing to say goodbye to her children
......so how was your day?
