I really wish that we could be there with Annie right now, but I do have to say that she is being so cared for and loved that it makes it a little easier to bear! There are a few people who stay there over the summer and volunteer at The Home of God’s Love. College students who give up their summers to take care of babies until the mommies and daddies can come to take them home. I have started to build relationships with some of these volunteers and they are wonderful!
Not only do they take care of my baby girl but they encourage me! Every time I get to read one of their blogs even though it has nothing to do with our Annie it is such an encouragement and reminder that Annie is being so loved even if I can’t be there! Say a prayer for these volunteers today! Pray that they can have energy and health to make it through the summer, that the Lord will grant them wisdom and keep them from becoming discouraged. Last time I knew there were 17 babies at the orphanage and 4 volunteers…do the math! There are a lot of opportunities for these volunteers to become discouraged, sick, tired, and homesick. PRAY!
