Sam and Esther- Please Watch and Happy Chinese New Year!

This is an amazing video! I sobbed and it really broke my heart to watch it but it is still a great video! It is about three precious orphans in Uganda. I have honestly never cried watching a youtube* video but this one made me sob! If you have the time PLEASE watch this!!! It is truly amazing! I have watched it twice! If you watch it leave a comment and tell me what you think :)



*Nana please watch this!

Now that you have cried here are the pictures My Mom and I just took. These are our Chinese New Year pictures! Hope you enjoy!!

Bless their little hearts. How very sad! This made me cry! It is so easy for us to forget that there is great suffering endured by defenseless babies in our world. Ashton, you are going to make such a difference for many because you have a heart that can truly see the BIG picture and you know you have to do something about it! I hear your calling! Love you!

Thank you for having a heart for orphans. Let's pray together that God will lead us in the right direction to help make a difference. I love you.

I have seen the video and it is just so hard to watch. I am so happy for every baby who is able to be matched with a forever family.

Oh my, how powerful. I am just speechless right now. Those poor babies. It's so easy to forget that there are people starving in the world, and in such great need. Thank you so much for sharing that video! I will have to post it on our blog!
