This photo is precious to me. In the two thousand photos we took in China, we managed to miss the moment Caroline was handed to me. Kristi's family captured it! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I zoomed in so you can see the look Caroline and I first exchanged...priceless. You can also see Jon videotaping, Mickey to my left, Mindy's head in the forefront of the photo above, and Abby just to my right. I had no idea they were all right there! What a MOMENT for us all!
I'm sure I'll revisit this concert experience and share more of my thoughts at a later date, but for now, I will leave my readers with this point to ponder...while we were at the concert, they had a number up on the curtain. It started out at 0 and by the end of the night, at my last check, it was 497. This number represents the number of children who became orphans during the time we were at the concert. Nearly 500 children...one every 18 seconds...going to bed without a family or a place to belong. But every one of those children has a family chosen by God. I pray these families will hear the call and be obedient...and be blessed beyond measure.
