We all have our moments...

The other night I saw an article about the Blankets for Babies fundraiser to help Vietnamese orphanages. I read a letter written by the director of the orphanage where the twins currently reside. It broke my heart. It really just tore me apart thinking about how those babies are still living in the orphanage. I know they are loved but orphanages are struggling because of increased economic hardship. I wish something could be different and that they were home with us.
Even though we have hope for the future we still miss the boys. We have had to go on with our lives but we do have our moments where the fact that we won't bring them home really hits hard. We just pray that they are well taken care of and loved.

I can't even imagine how that must feel in your heart. I'm sorry that you've had to go through all that you have. You have so much love to give.

That has to be so hard to think about. I can't imagine how difficult it still must be. I will pray that the boys are being loved and taken care of as well.

That must be so difficult for you, and I'm so sorry for that. You have to have faith that they are very well loved and that are healthy and happy.

I'm so sorry that you are going through this. Even though we know that God is in control, it's so hard to suffer loss. Praying for you.

I know how often you think of the twins and miss them. The twins will find a loving home and you will become parents when you are ready to begin again. The Hines family is right, it is so hard to suffer loss. Thinking of you.
Is there anything we can do to help the twins' orphanage?

I imagine that those little boys will always have a place in your heart, and I don't think that you will ever forget that love you felt (and still feel) for them. I know that God has a special plan for them and for the two of you as well. You are meant to be a mom.

I have no idea what you must feel. The boys as well as the rest of the children in orphanages around the world will be in my prayers. Your family will be in my prayers as well.

Ugh, that's awful. It must still be such a raw wound that to read things like that it just tears right back open. I am so sorry and will also pray for the boys.
