Words that will make your heart break

The other day, Yeshoda asked, "Auntie, may I call you 'Mommy'?"

"Well..." I started to respond.

"Because I don't have a mommy.  I want you to be my mommy," she said, smiling up at me.  

Sometimes it's so hard not to want to just bottle them up and keep them safe and protected their entire lives.

I am already worried about how you will bear it when your children go home. It will be SO heartbreaking for everyone. Do not even think about moving to Africa or Nepal!!! (well, unless God says so, which I hope He won't!)
